Hurricane prognostication?

I predict that the next hurricane will be named, Jeanne. And let's up it one notch... the next one is Karl. Scary huh? Well, doing a little research, I found out that there is a hurricane name list for the next six years. 2005 will start with Arlene and end with Wilma. Interestingly enough, hurricane names can be 'retired' if they cause enough damage and a country requests it. Then a new name is selected and the replaced one will remain 'off-duty' for ten years.

So now you know more than you ever wanted to know about naming hurricanes.

But if that wasn't enough, find out more here.
