26. Valid points Mr. Wizard. I tend to agree with you about self fulfilling prophecies.
But I also think that's it doesn't necessarily have to go down that way. In my head a prophecy is there to warn us and give a chance to alter that destiny. It's a very personal struggle I have with myself actually. Destiny or self determination. Big damn concepts.
