I know this prediction may seem too absurd, but that old thread in 2009 had predictions that were laughable today, so this will be my prediction.
Blind FM OH and clock are very possible...

Almost all of them are physically impossible / extremely improbable, so unless robotic arms are allowed they won't get that low
Stanley Chapel has a 7.3 blind solve. Clock all it needs is some luck and that is pretty probable in the next 10 years. FM is the same. THere is already and OH solve at home faster than that, and max has Mo3 faster.

at the rate chinese cubers and young prodigies are improving, sub-5 avg is basically guaranteed. I think maybe sub-4 is maybe possible if these chinese cubers could combine tymon efficiency with their insane 12+ tps. also a sub-3 single will happen sooner or later when a top level cuber gets the luckiest scramble ever.
