Seer Defies Own Death Prediction

Seer Defies Own Death Prediction
(BBC News)
Punjilal, a 75-year-old resident of a village in India’s Madhya Pradesh state had said he would die between 1500 and 1700 local time on Thursday.

Journalists, doctors and TV channels joined thousands of curious locals outside the temple he was sitting in.

But the time came and passed and the fortune teller survived. He now says he will live till he is 90.

What a brave man! I’m shifting allegiance from the elephant god to the monkey god.

Someone should have stepped in and done the right thing at 16:59 to save the poor fellow from such a terrible embarrassment.

I predicted his demise too, so I too am now abashed at my failure. But I cannot go along with this 90 year-old backup plan. I must predict, here and for the first time, that Punjilal will live until 2pm on Thursday, July 22, 2009. I will be taking odds and placing appropriate bets soon.

Bob, that's not a bet, but a death wish.
