I find it quite incredible that some people still believe in psychics and psychic abilities. I wish I possessed the ability to con people out of thousands of dollars at a time, but alas I do not.

I went through a few YouTube clips of the oddly famous Leila Abdel Latif, a local woman who claims to experience “visions” of events to come. Most of the things she said were pretty general like “there will be instability in the Arab world” (no shit) but she also throws in more specific predictions, too.

The thing that stood out the most to me was the fact that her voice is super irritating, how does everyone tolerate it? Is that why she's featured on New Year’s Eve? Because everyone will be too drunk to notice?

I thought it would be fun to go through some footage of Leila Abdel Latif’s predictions just to have an excuse to formally shit on psychics. So here are ten things she’s gotten wrong in 2016:

1. Hillary Clinton will become president.

Oh, honey. Both you and Nate Silver will never live this one down.

2. Mehlem Barakat will have a brand new hit song.


3. Jean Obeid or Jean Kahwaji will become president.

Please stop theorizing about presidential elections. You’re like a bad luck charm.

4. Egypt will experience a majorly destructive earthquake.

5. Tsunami strikes Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, and Algeria.

She’s just covering all her bases at this point.

6. Assassination of an Arab president.

7. The United States will lose a major city to a tornado.

I actually lol’d about this one.

8. Syria will be at peace.

Honestly what are you on? Can I have some?

9. Turkey is safe for tourism, despite protests.


10. A meteor will hit South America.

Please let me buy some of your weed.

I wonder how much money she made during the past few years. I wonder more how idiotic one has to be to actually believe such stuff, and even plan one's day, week, or year accordingly.
