Nostradamus Effects Seen in Jonny Bravo and the Titanic?

“Vagueness is ESSENTIAL to fortune telling and cold reading”.

Johnny Bravo

            When we learned about Nostradamus and his vague predictions last class, these were the first two things that popped in my mind. The prediction of the destruction of the world trade center during 9/11 and the also the prediction of Titanic sinking. Contrary to Nostradamus cold readings, these two things weren't vague at all. In fact they were eerily similar.

This scene comes from the episode “Chain Gang Johnny”. As you can see on the right hands side depicts a picture of a smoking building engulfed in flames with the words“ coming soon” on top. Having known this episode aired in the year 200, 4 months prior to the happenings of 9/11, I was quite stupefied. 

Titanic and the Futility

The novel “Futility” written in 1898 by the author Morgan Robertson, also shows eerie similarities with the sinking of the Titanic.

Here are some similarities:

Name: In Futility, the boat is described as the largest ship of its day and was called the Titan.

Size: The ships were practically the same size, with the Titanic measuring only 25 meters longer.

Date: Both ships, described as “unsinkable,” hit an iceberg and went under in mid-April.

Speed: Both were capable of speeds over 20 knots.

Safety: Despite having thousands of passengers on board, both ships carried the bare legal minimum number of lifeboats

According a researcher, the author of the book was “an experienced seaman, and he saw ships as getting very large and the possible danger that one of these behemoths would hit an iceber



  1. That Johnny Bravo episode is really creepy. This is really insane that was in there. Could this be a subliminal message? I don't but I'm just glad that I never supported Johnny Bravo.

  2. One of DiCaprio's best performances was in Titanic
