Thousands of people have apparently left Rome over the last few days over a fear that it will be destroyed today in a giant earthquake, according to the BBC.
The quake was predicted by Raffaele Benandi, who died in 1979. Let me make that clear: the man has been dead for thirty two years.
That’s not the only problem with this – you can’t predict earthquakes and if you could, it wouldn’t be that far in advance.
Anyway, Italy is an hour ahead of us here, so by my clock there’s four minutes left to prove Benandi right.
I think they’ll be fine.
