The world's most famous prophet. He began his career as a plauge physician in 16th-century France. He encoded his powerful visions of the future in four-line poems called "quartrains", using puns, word games, and astrological symbols to describe what was (and is) to come. Among the events he successfully forsaw include:
- The American and French relvolutions
- Both world wars
- The rises and falls of Napoleon and Hitler
- The assassination of JFK
- The lunar landing
- The Russia revolution
- 9/11

Doesn't it feel good to acctually learn something useful on Urbandictionary.com?
Here's a sample of a quatrain:

"One who the infernal gods of Hannibal
Will call to be born, terror to all mankind:
Newspapers cannot tell of worse horror in the past,
They will come to the Romans through Babel."
Century II, Quatrain 30

An old man who was pretty cool.
"Nostradamus, you were (a little) ahead of your time,
in the 1500's
you were thinkin' about '99

Nostradamus, were you a prognosticator
or just a lucky guess generator?
How did you know so much?
Did the aliens talk to you?
Did you come from the future and why?
Cuz you were a super cool
future tellin' kind of guy."
