A Blind Mystic 'Predicted 9/11' And That 'Russia Will Dominate The World'
If you're a gambler, and more importantly if you can find a bookie that will take bets on the outcome of global wars, here's a tip for you.
A Bulgarian psychic known as Baba Vanga who is known as 'The Nostradamus of the Balkans' reportedly predicted that Russia - and more specifically Vladimir Putin - will go on to dominate the world.
She's got form too. She has allegedly predicted quite a good number of world events in recent times. She predicted Brexit, the rise of ISIS in the Middle East, the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004, and now - the total world domination of the Russian Federation.
This is all pretty good going for an 85 year old blind woman. Oh, and she died in 1996 - which would make her predictions even more impressive.
The bleak forecast was made to a writer called Valentin Sidorov in 1979, Vanga said: "All will thaw, as if ice, only one remain untouched - Vladimir's glory, glory of Russia.
"Too much it is brought in a victim. Nobody can stop Russia.
"All will be removed by her from the way and not only will be kept, but also becomes the lord of the world."
OK, so it's a little bit vague, but these things often are - it's still pretty creepy though, isn't it?
It comes at a time when tensions between Britain and Russia are running pretty high. Britain thinks Russia is responsible for the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia with a Novichok nerve agent in Salisbury a few weeks back.
Prime Minister Theresa May has booted 23 Russian diplomats in response and - as you might expect - the Russians are not best pleased about that.
So, as we wait for the eventual nuclear apocalypse, let's take a look back at some of Baba Vanga's other greatest hits.
She was born as Vangelia Gushterova and then blinded after being picked up by a tornado when she was a kid, which reportedly gave her the supernatural powers that she has used to predict basically everything in store for us up until the death of the planet.
The good news is, we've got until about 3797, and we'll be advanced enough to get to another solar system by then.
In 1989, she said: "Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing."
Sound familiar? No need to explain what that one is about then.
This one's a bit more difficult to interpret, but it allegedly forecasts the 2004 tsunami: "Cold regions will become warm ... and volcanoes will awaken.
"A huge wave will cover a big coast covered with people and towns, and everything will disappear beneath the water. Everything will melt, just like ice."
It's not all doom and gloom though, we catch a bit of a break between 2025 and 2028 with an end to global hunger, but then the ice caps melt.
So we've got that to look forward to at least.
