Look, this is too much. The web bot got it wrong. Ash death would fit better with the description of a volcano going off, and/or nuclear bomb, not the plague.
Obviously these guys are trying to link up with the time wave zero, or maybe the web crawler has picked up on time wave zero chatter, either way, they are both thoroughly busted. They have been shown to be only minor predictors and that based on what any one of us, who are informed on these matters could have predicted.
Time wave zero and the web bot are frauds. They both take your money and give you generalities as predictions. As far as that goes, astrology has fared better, in my opinion, and I don't even subscribe to astrology. These two things have died, let them rest in peace. They have given up the ghost.
Plague interpretation Many have associated the poem with the Great Plague of London in 1665, or with earlier outbreaks of bubonic plague in England. Interpreters of the rhyme before World War II make no mention of this; by 1951, however, it seems to have become well established as an explanation for the form of the rhyme that had become standard in the United Kingdom. Peter and Iona Opie remark: "The invariable sneezing and falling down in modern English versions have given would-be origin finders the opportunity to say that the rhyme dates back to the Great Plague. A rosy rash, they allege, was a symptom of the plague, posies of herbs were carried as protection, sneezing was a final fatal symptom , and 'all fall down' was exactly what happened." The line Ashes, Ashes in alternative versions of the rhyme is claimed to refer variously to cremation of the bodies, the burning of victims' houses, or blackening of their skin, and the theory has been adapted to be applied to other versions of the rhyme, or other plagues. In its various forms, the interpretation has entered into popular culture and has been used elsewhere to make oblique reference to the plague. (For 'hidden meaning' in other nursery rhymes see Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, Humpty Dumpty, Jack Be Nimble, Little Jack Horner, Cock Robin and Meanings of nursery rhymes.) Folklore scholars regard the theory as baseless for several reasons: 1. the late appearance of the explanation; 2. the symptoms described do not fit especially well with the Great Plague; 3. the great variety of forms make it unlikely that the modern form is the most ancient one, and the words on which the interpretation are based are not found in many of the earliest records of the rhyme (see above); 4. European and 19th-century versions of the rhyme suggest that this "fall" was not a literal falling down, but a curtsy or other form of bending movement that was common in other dramatic singing games

Did this breakout happen in october 25th? as it was suppose to happen? I don't think so, otherwise it would have hit the news in ATS on that very day. This is an example of exactly what I mention the other day in here; people look back at some event, and try to say "event X was predicted by event Y(webbot)". This, like always, happens after the fact. In other words, people choose an event of some importance and then say "webbot predicted it!".
This becomes even more easy to do when the prophecy is very vague, which leaves space for several interpretations (examples: prophecies of nostradamus, the book of revelations in the bible, webbot, etc.)
This webbot is pure nonsense, but at least I predicted people would connect one event with the so-called webbot prophecy within two year's time. I guess my prophecy was correct

A pocket full o’posies-
We all fall down
It is only in America where ashes is used, out of over 20 different versions around the World, even in Louisiana and Texas ashes is not used according to Wikipedia, I have always known it as A-tishoo, never heard ashes until today.
