I find this quite interesting , That they took the time to put these warnings do you think that there's more to it ?

If you see me, weep.” Those foreboding words, written in German in 1616 and inscribed on a “hunger stone” in Central Europe, have reappeared after a prolonged drought caused water levels on some parts of the continent to drop. The stones have traditionally sat below the water line near the Elbe River in the Czech Republic, but because the current drought is so intense, about a dozen of them have now been revealed. The authors of a 2013 study on historic droughts in the region said the stones, which all contain similar bleak messages and often date back hundreds of years, were “chiseled with the years of hardship and the initials of authors lost to history.”

One of the "hunger stones" exposed by the low level of water in the Elbe River is seen in Decin, Czech Republic, Thurs., Aug. 23, 2018. (AP)

Kind of like the tsunami stones in Japan. We only notice them before it is too late.

I found 7 dates

1616-100 years
1716-74 years
1790-21 years
1811-31 years
1842-26 years
1868-53 years
1921-97 years to date

Not sure what this proves other then the last 100 years have been pretty good .
