Excerpts from the Prophecies of Nicetradamus (pt. 1)

Michel de Nostradame, more commonly known as Nostradamus, was born on December 14, 1503, in St. Remy de Provence, France. His writings have long been thought to hold clues predicting some of the most important events in history, including the rise to power of Hitler, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Great Fire of London and the Space Shuttle Challenger tragedy.

Around the same time, Nostradamus's cousin was born in France: Jacques de Nicetradame. He and Michel were great childhood friends and even studied together in Avignon. When Nostaradamus set to writing his famous procphecies called "The Centuries," Nicetradame was extremely supportive of his cousin. However, Jacques felt that Michel's poems were interesting but extremely negative. The two had a few heated debates over the direction that the project should take before Jacques set off to write his own series of prophecies called, "The Other Centuries."

While Jacques's works are largely ignored or forgotten, they contain some rather interesting predictions. While most of them have not been proven to have come true, they do lend a look into a future that would be a heck of a lot nicer to live in that that of his cousin's.

Here are some interesting excerpts from The Prophecies of Nicetradamus:

The king will watch the sky,
A hundred paths will illuminate,
Fire will be extinguished,
And the world will enjoy the puffy clouds of joy.
(Century 10, Quatrain 49)

From Rome to the waters of Athens,
The temple of the rats will be no more,
The Litterbugs will be cast out,
And it will be time for a happy dance-a-thon.
(Century 8, Quatrain 92)

The bearded one will smile happily,
His savings goals have been realized,
For his neighbors it is time to cease their money worries as well,
And enjoy his newly purchased leaf blower.
(Century 4, Quatrain 23)

The armies will march across the battlefield,
Each will have the other in sight,
And when it is time for the archers to unleash their fury,
They will lay down their quivers and become armies of fun.
(Century 3, Quatrain 80)

Singing a song of great success,
The long haired dictator will become quite hoarse,
So much so that his second in command,
Will take over his happy tune from "Godspell."
(Century 7, Quatrain 62)

On the seventh day in the new city,
The tall tower will errupt with cheers,
When it is discovered that in the meadows below,
A toddler is petting a bunny.
(Century 1, Quatrain 27)

As the sun will shine, a man stroll through the wheat fields.
The dust clouds shall roll
As a voice chants, the fog will be lifted!
This land was made for you and me.
(Century 21, Quatrain 11)

Two have conspired to procure the poison,
Into the kitchen of the noble prince they go,
Silently they deploy their deadly payload,
They have solved the prince's rat problem once and for all.
(Century 9, Quatrain 92)

The seer lifts up on his ragged cloak,
His staff heavy in his hands,
A look of doom weighs heavy on his face,
He hopes that his new kittens will be healthy.
(Century 6, Quatrain 22)

Under the watchful eye of Luna,
A thousand golden chariots will descend on one evening,
At first it will appear that the drivers want every family's first born,
Then their true motive will be clear: Group hug.
(Century 10, Quatrain 86)
