From the link, "Some reversals occurred within a few 10,000 years of each other," says Los Alamos scientist Gary Glatzmaier, "and there are other periods where no reversals occurred for tens of millions of years."
Doesn't sound very predictable. Certainly not predictable enough to say we are overdue.
"Magnetic north heads south, and -- over about 1,000 years -- the field does a complete flip-flop."
Although there was a single study which showed 6 degrees per day for a short period, 1,000 years is long enough, I think I can adapt.
