My father likes to impress me by his ability to predict what is going to happen in a TV show that came out fifty years ago, that he has probably seen three or four times a year for the last decade. In this way, he is like his mother who tries to impress me with her predictions about Law & Order reruns.
The only difference is that my grandmother is always wrong and my dad is right about 60% of the time.
"You know how all of those people are getting on that giant, fancy boat? I bet it's going to sink."
"But, dad, The Titanic is unsinkable!"
