Ken Meets Chuck

Ken W.:
Realist theory predicts that balances disrupted will one day be restored. A limitation of the theory, a limitation common to social science theories, is that it cannot say when.
Chuck P.:
On a long enough time line, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.
Me:
On a long enough time line, any prediction can come true. / On a long enough time line the notion of prediction becomes ridiculous.
