WHATEVER: John Scalzi announced on his blog today that he had predicted white chocolate M&M's in his book The Android's Dream. Unfortunately for Mr. Scalzi, white chocolate M&M's, called Pirate Pearls, were already on the market in 2006 when his novel about killing aliens by farting (yes, really) was published. Apparently, ripping off Robert A. Heinlein (or Philip K. Dick, or Joe Haldeman, or Gene Roddenberry) isn't sufficient to give someone powers of prognostication.
Tip o'the hat to Vox Populi for mentioning this post.
