If I told you that one book could predict major world events, you would think I’m talking about the Farmer’s Almanac. While the Farmer’s Almanac is fairly accurate when it comes to predicting weather patterns and events, I’m referring to a book written in 1969. John Brunner wrote Stand On Zanzibar about what life in the year 2010 would be like. It is a work of fiction, but after reading it, you would find some eerie similarities.
In the book, the President’s name is Obomi. That’s creepily close to real life President Obama.
It’s crazy how accurate (or close to being accurate) these predictions were. I’m starting to think that Mr. John Brunner may have a time machine to accurately predict the future. Either way, check out the book if you’re looking to get spooked this Halloween.
