The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow Alert™:
No plague in U.S. in September!

Publication: Sun
Date: 17 May 2010

Nostradamus, the most trusted name in prophecy.

Nostradamus, complete fucking dud in the Sun this year.

There was supposed to be a killer plague sweeping the U.S. in September. I know some of my students caught whatever was going around, especially if I was giving a midterm, but as for killer plague, not so much.

This is the fifth official use of the "Nostradamus fail" label this year. How many times have I used the "Nostradamus win" label? So far, I haven't had any need to invent it.

I think maybe .02 percent of Americans under 40 even know who Nostradamus was.
