The Crow Eating Thread

Forums - General Discussion - The Crow Eating Thread

So, for those who are unaware of what eating crow is, here is a definition from answer.com:

eat crow

Also, eat dirt or humble pie. Be forced to admit a humiliating mistake, as in When the reporter got the facts all wrong, his editor made him eat crow.

I made mention of creating a thread specifically for this when people make predictions that are TOTALLY wrong. This isn't a specific thread for ONE incident. This thread is for ALL incidents of completely wrong predictions, especially when the person making said prediction is ABSOLUTELY certain they cannot be wrong.

This initial post is just to describe the purpose of this thread. To make a person eat crow, you have to acurately cite their misquotes, and that person, upon seeing this thread, must eat crow.

Example (completely off topic):
If some random person said: "Apple's iPod will never be famous", you would quote their passage in this thread and tell them to fess up to their incorrect prediction, to which said person will admit they were wrong, hence, eating crow.

Be gentle

I expect John Lucas in here when they show MGS 4 running at the Sony booth next week and end his crazy theory about it never coming on the PS3...

Are you ready John Lucas?



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

I suspect those who make the most outlandish predictions will make their appearances lol

I've got my eye on Gballzack for one

 Where did Gballzack's new account disappear to? Akhmed Tepisch or whatnot...



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

She had a new account?

She's back in her original form, with a knife and fork, ready for some delicious crow, no doubt.

I agree with the bundle screwing part, however:


My opinion? Don't buy. With an estimated 4 million unit shipping before the end of the year, I have a hard time believing you, Joe Consumer, won't be able to walk into Target, a Best Buy, a Circuit City, and score one, along with games you actually want. Rage against the bundle machine! Don't let the Man dictate what you buy!

But, if he is right, then we all expect you to be in here with crow in hand, ready to eat...

Excellent example. I kinda doubt a kotaku writer will stop by to accept his dish of crow, though. But if they happen to ...

Just because a game is running on a system at E3 doesn't mean that it will ever actually be released for that system ...

His prediction can come true up until the day the game is actually released 



Keep on believing... keep hope alive....

MGS 4 Wii exclusive it's coming...
