For the love all that is righteous and holy, please stomp all over the hideous and pointless Nostradamus threads on the front page.

Nostrodamus forsaw that post getting deleted. Nothing to see here folks.

There's still one Nostradamus post still up.

How many were there? Were they all by the same person?

I saw two (and one more that lent itself that way), with additional prophet-y material appearing within several threads.

i wasn't sure the best place to post this, and i'm hesitant to post at all, but given the timestamp on this, i find it just a little creepy.

feelingveryashamed. i was tired and in shock last night and mentioned this thing in one of the threads. it's amazing the stupidity you can reap if your not letting that vital gap happen between the your fingers and your brain -- although thankfully i stopped short of the front page. i can't believe my own attitude sometimes. really sorry. as i think i've said elsewhere it's a shame we can't rewrite our own posts.

And it's not even a valid prediction to begin with.

Of course it isn't. The "Nostradamus predicted this" hoax is a very common one.

I apologize for posting yet another Nostra-link before checking the existing Nostra-thread, which ended with a Nostradebunk using the same link.

Huh? You mean Nostradamus isn't a treatment for post-nasal drip?

I learn something new here almost every day.
