I guess this isn't new anymore. So many large earthquakes around the globe, no takes notice.

Hi there, I'm a member of a Guns N' Roses forum and someone on there posted a load of predictions by some woman called Nikki. The reason why they posted it there was that in her list of predictions for 2009 (apparently quite a few she made for 2008 came true) was because she's predicted that the lead singer, Axl Rose, would die. That's not my reason for replying though, amongst her predictions were an earthquake in Russia and Tsunami's in Alaska and British Colombia and a few other places. I've just checked to post the link and that thread has completely disappeared. Luckily I printed it off in work (but it is still there).
