The Nostradamus Effect
I watched the television show, The Nostradamus Effect, while visiting home last weekend and it got me thinking: “What must his other jobs and his life been like?” And then I thought, “Probably very awkward.” I imagined him a comedian telling horrible prophecies as punchlines and as a therapist traumatizing his patients. Then I thought about what his friends must have thought. I do not imagine they were too keen on his weirdness.
Of course, the real Nostradamus was probably nothing like the person people nowadays like to imagine, but it is funny imagery. I, honestly, never understood the obsession with the man. His “prophecies” were so vague that they could apply to just about anything if you tried hard enough.
By the way, those are actual quotes from the man in the strip. Real portions of his ridiculous quatrains. They are excellent, are they not?
