Tomorrow night the final presidential debate between John McCain and Barack Obama takes place in Hempstead, N.Y., and with the presidential election three weeks from today, this is pretty much the last chance for John McCain to make one of his game-changing Hail-Mary-pass campaign stunts. The political blog FiveThirtyEight.com offers a handy risk-assessment-level graphic (right) to determine how likely a stunt would be, based on the McCain campaign's mood.

To foresee what actual shape a stunt may take, Slate recently predicted McCain's next Hail Mary stunts, including:

1. Returns to Vietnam and jails himself.

2. Offers the post of "vice vice president" to Warren Buffett.

3. Challenges Obama to suspend campaign so they both can go and personally drill for oil offshore.

4. Learns to use computer.
