I totally do not have the energy to waste on the ever-absurd Nostradamus predictions. Yet, here it is. I hate them, they are stupid, wrong, and they continue to come up after every large world event.
Here is the latest: Michel de Nostredame, kick-ass astrologer, predicted the rise of The Donald – The great shameless, audacious bawler – as president.
BoingBoing actually noted this back in the Trump candidacy days.
You can read Nostradamus’ drivel if you have nothing better to do here and match it to any event you wish through creative translation and pattern seeking. I’d advise against it because it will drive you mad. It’s a profoundly silly exercise. Predictions are only useful if they are actually understandable and allow people to act. Can we forget this guy already? We have enough on our plates.
I know I should write more to explain my cynical disgust with everything-Nostradamus but that would take a few hours to do right – hours that I don’t have – and result in something that few would appreciate. So I didn’t and I apologize for that. That YUUUGE rock needs to be pushed up the hill again tomorrow and the next day and the next day… so I’m going to bed.
Just remember, Nostradamus was so very correct in presaging that gullible people would be around forever. Make it vague and they will eat it up.
