  1. Also, I'd read a couple of interviews in which Ledger talked about how uncomfortable he was with fame. So, even if she isn't flat out lying, it's this kind of thing that might lead to a vaguely reasonably prediction that you can later trump as proof of your "powers". Plus, if she is psychic to the stars she might have contacts within the industry who could have told her about any problems he had. I know a few movie types and they aren't shy about gossing.

  2. You didn't follow the link, did you?

    Shame on you.

  3. Yeah I did. I said even if she isn't lying (which seems unlikely), these are possible non woo related reasons why she could make a successful prediction.

    Of course, I topped that. I have predicted the deaths of every human on earth.

    I need to update my prediction to account for new folks just recently born. They will die too.

    Oh, and BTW as an extra bonus prediction, everyone is on a health watch as well. They will get sick.

  5. My first reaction on seeing that list was that, out of so many people, someone on it was bound to get seriously ill or die within the year. Prediction fulfilled, QED.

    Then I followed the link and found she wasn't even that lucky....

  6. The worst thing is that people actually fall for this garbage. Sigh.

  7. Who cares if she hit one, and missed the rest? He stated that he was now comfortable with death since he has a child in an interview. And off the basis of how broke back mountain might have black listed his career and didn’t get him an Oscar, you could imagine he would have anxiety and depression and the medications to go with it... I flat out said in May 2007 to a group of 40 people that he would likely die within a year, and likely that it would be from medications improperly metabolized by his body so it would look like an overdose, which Europe tests for and the US wont. So he more than likely didn’t commit suicide, he’s a victim of the FDA and medical system for not catching up to the rest of the worlds standards. THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU PSYCHIC! It means your looking at trends and probability.
