apparently #9 is false - it's from two separate books Koontz & Sylvia Browne (2008).Had to look up though. Apparently Koontz changed his Wuhan from "Gorki-400" in the second edition and Browne's was out 8 years after SARS. On the face of it quite scary - thanks internet! Now quite calm after meds prescribed by Dr Google!

Hold a second @Time so what you’re really saying is that despite the slightly misleading picture the books still are very creepy in their predictive text. So it’s not false as you and many establishment eco chambers claim it to be. Also noted your immediate response, picture published 2 hours ago, your response 2 hours ago. Triggered much? The Google prescription is truly precious! Sadly this is nothing new books, tv shows, films, comics, card games and other media consumables all too often predict horrible events that are designed to coral society in the desired direction of those who wield power and see the masses as nothing more then disposable assets. Boy oh boy do they hate being called out on their blatant predictive programming.

Pretty (above): "events that are designed to coral society in the desired direction."

Coral society? Coral??? Under the sea? Weird point, but if you say so.

This is cute, do you understand the concept of a time line? Koonz book was published 1981, Brownes book published in 2008. The current year is 2020. When you say something prior 2020 and it happens post that date that’s called prediction, foreknowledge or coincidence. It’s not rocket science but the fact that modern day people struggle with this basic concept and rely on their thinking to be done for them by Reuters and NYT is most disturbing. My heart goes out to the millennials who’s ability to think critically has been utterly destroyed. The world has failed you more than many of you will ever know.

@Funny and @Beautiful Wow couldn’t ask for a better example of pro establishment gov troll army panic reactionaries. When called out on blatant spin, lies and attempts to control the narrative avoid addressing the logical arguments and issue at hand. Instead revert to labeling and demonizing with “conspiracy theory” jargon and mockery. Can’t thank you geniuses enough for participating! It’s just so easy! Exposure is coming... sleep tight! 36
