Here's an excerpt of the intro for this entry:
Uncanny Prophesy: What will happen to the world at 2008?
Mr. Juseleeno Nobulega DaRoose is a Brazilian, born in 1960, 48 years old now. He is a teacher, another normal citizen having a very poor life with his wife and kids. All the events which Mr. Juselleno predicted had clear indications of the year, month and dates of the disasters. In case any third party wants to confirm the facticity of his prophecy, Mr. Juselleno always put the story which he predicted to the notarization office or post office for approval.
Somebody asked him, how old did he start the prophesy dream, and he answered: 9 years old. From 1969, he dreamt 3 events a day, sometimes 9, the number of times he dream differs every day. He said all the prophecy dreams appear automatically in his dream. When Mr. Juseleeno was 19 years old, he met the famous Brazilian prophecy Saint Mr. Franciscoshabiz, after which the frequency of worldwide disaster events increased in his prophecy dreams. Twice, Mr. Franciscoshabiz was the candidate for the Nobel Prize: he is a very famous differential functional person, at the same time he is also a Charitarian.
The events which Mr. Juseleeno predicted are already more than 80 000. Let's first look at a few big worldwide events and huge disaster from his prophesy...
10. He Had A Wife
Marlin reportedly wed a woman from Oklahoma in Hawaii in March 2007. They lived together in Portland, Oregon, for four years before his wife filed for divorce in August 2011. Their divorce took place on August 23, 2012.
