"How many days do we have?"This is the best question in this whole thread in my opinion.No one is guaranteed a single day!
The physical stuff mentioned here of leaking from various orifices sounds like Ayahuasca to me.And that peristalsis is a good thing,in the proper place and context,of course.
And all this from a piece of code which scours the net for the most used terms in web pages, spits them out and then have a human decipher the results inevitably resulting in prediction of a catastrophe!

But when applied to natural (and known as unpredictable) things like earthquakes and other natural disasters, it stops making sense in the way it was meant to be because people do not control those things.
So, if these things have been really predicted and happened, could it be that the people who write about them on the Internet (and which writings feed this system) are the ones who create them? Could it be that because thousands of people are worrying about earthquakes they create an earthquake without knowing that they were responsible for it?
PS: as in most cases, I suppose that this only applies to English speaking people, so how could an earthquake in China could be predicted by English speaking people writing about it?

You know, I have been looking at the 'language' for this 'event' and I am wondering if the prediction has to be a catastrophe? From what I have read about how this system supposedly works, the words that come out are symbolic and indicate the general emotional impression about the future event as pulled from subtle changes in language and context of words being posted to the internet. Could the whole 'release' language concerning 'forces giving away' and things like 'bladder/bowel release' maybe mean the international credit market will un-freeze and money will start to flow again?
Why does it have to be doom and gloom?
IF this bot is even close to a prediction (I may be inclined to believe it but I would say we could use a little more proof), then maybe the 'release' will be a good one?
