People have been predicting outcomes for years. There was a story a couple of months back about something similar. And here's a link to a group that stated 75% success predicting the outcome prior to oral arguments, back in 2004 http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/4099370?uid=3738032&uid=2&uid=4&sid=21104566455723. I can't comment on the relative academic merits of either though.

I've flown on some lightweight seats with Lufthansa on a short haul flight recently. Even on a 2 hour flight, they were the most uncomfortable airline seats I've ever sat in. The seats were very thin, padding was practically non existent & the experience was more like being sat in a waiting room chair. If I knew the seats when I booked then it would influence my choice of airline. So, think we won't notice? I'm not so sure.

You scratch my tape, and I'll scratch yours.
