Ultimate Worrier did an episode where the biggest fear was a plague. The expert they brought on said it was a matter of 'when' and not 'if'.

That was last spring, or so.

Prophetic? Just about as prophetic as this guy...

I predicted the coronavirus about seven years ago in Pandemic II.

But Madagascar....

The worst kind of "psychics" are the ones who pretend they foresaw a major disaster and make their next interview/book an "I told you so" because they got one "hit" out of 1,000 misses.

There are people with mild clairvoyant or precognitive tendencies in small ways. I believe that. It's a human instinct or a deep-seated ability to detect a pattern and interpret it. It's something most people do from time to time. But most TV and book "psychics" are just charlatans who throw a ton of "predictions" out there, and then wait to claim their power is real when one of them "comes true". If you balance everything, they're only right about as much as anyone else would be when making thousands of random predictions.

Sylvia Browne did not "foresee" COVID-19 either... Just like she was totally wrong (and caused a woman to die in misery) when she said a lost child was dead, when the child was not dead and would have been found earlier if she hadn't thrown everyone off the trail with her bullshiat "psychic" readings. She really was one of the worst human beings on Earth. She charged people outrageous prices for 10 minutes of telephone "predictions" that consisted of vague, generic "feelings". She was a shiatty cold-reader and a bad fiction writer, and she scammed a lot of people.

Stephen King beat him to it. If you've read all his works, the predictions are there. Sure, in his version, the president sneezed on national television and in ours the president and his team took turns deepthroating the same microphone, but there's bound to be some variation.

What a Psy chic might look like.

He looks like if David Blaine and David Copperfield had a shiatty little baby.

Vague predictions of shiat that's been a scientific fact for decades or even centuries is not evidence of any supernatural powers.

Call that a prediction?

I predicted Trump's victory and what that would lead to nearly four years ago.

I wish that feeling a sense of gloom was in any way remarkable these days.

Sounds like typical cold read stuff. Had some of the details wrong, generally pretty vague, and definitely relying on the hits and ignoring the misses.

All 'psychics' are "psychics who claim".

You have to be exceedingly stupid to believe in psychics.  Every psychic would be a lottery winner if their powers were real.

/yet, a few people who are intelligent enough to use a computer and find their way to fark are this stupid

George Noory coasttocoast/ ancient aliens always has psychics on his radio show. I like someone to go back and see how many "saw" this.. I bet none

I am still laughing at all the psychics that nailed the Mayan Apocalypse

I'd me more impressed if he had hard evidence showing that he used words like "the virus shall be named Corona, like the beer".

Every two-bit huckster and apocalypse prepper has "predicted" a viral catastrophe

Psychic Potato here.  You can trust me, if we ignore all of my predictions except for the impact of this virus, I have a one hundred percent accuracy rate.

I bought seeds yesterday.  Man, I hope I just wasted 20 dollars.  But every bit of hoarding I've done so far has paid off and been correct.

I thought a prediction was coming through this morning, but it was just the spoons bending.

Next time this guy feels a sense of gloom, he should adjust his anti-depressant dosage or maybe take some vitamin D. We don't need this shiat.
