10. The sinking of the Titanic was predicted
Writers have been known for making all kinds of educated guesses and wild predictions, but Morgan Robertson seems to have outdone them all. In his novella written in 1898 he described the sinking of a ship named the Titan which was also thought to be unsinkable. Just like Titanic, the ship in the book collided with an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic. He wrote this book 14 years before the actual tragedy happened!
