nostradamus

Postby itslarry » Sun May 10, 2015 6:26 pm

I didnt know where to post this, and amnot sure if its ohk to in the first place, but my neighbor wanted me to.

\he recently watched a show on nostradamus on history channel or something, and being a believer he came up with his own quatrain (not sure he knows what that means). He is 100% serious.

What's that stuff supposed to mean? I mean your buddy's 10 line quatrain.

I am not exactly sure what he means. He was watching the show on tv, and saw they intereviewd a few members of the Skeptic Society, and he asked me to post his "quatrain" and see if anybody here had anything to say about it. I was simply doing this, and figured the humor section was the best area...

Well, regarding Nostradamus, I think his quatrains were silly stuff. I don't put any weight into any of his quatrains.

It doesn't matter if it has inherent meaning. The more vague it is, the more interpretations you can attach to it.

He wrote an entirely new prediction? So it has nothing to do with Nostradamus? It's not meant to be a translation of anything, just a totally made-up thing?

So it's got as much point to is as a random Deepak Chopra quote? :mrgreen:

A quatrain is supposed to have metre. That's just four sentences.
