It t'was foretold by the ancients! "Come the millennium, month twelve, In the home of the greatest power, The village idiot will come forth To be acclaimed the leader." - Nostradamus [1555] I consider myself someone with mental fortitude. I consider myself not given to listen to foolish ramblings of portents. But in this case I must concede!

I heard that Nostradamus quote months ago, and I'm pretty sure it's a fake.

Jpoulos is right. I forgot where this all broke down earlier, but the quote is a fake.

I think this qualifies the thread as a double post, no?

In case anyone was still unsure, it's baloney.

Nostradamus got about two predictions by pure fluke, the rest were a pile of crap. I mean, for the past two/three years we've been threatend with eternal doom every christian and chinese new year. I don't believe what dead man says =).
