8. BTW, the Greeks had a myth about Sybil.
I don't recall all the detail, but she was given the gift of prophesy but also cursed in that no one would believe her when she prophesied.

She was so shunned that, eventually, she became nothing but a voice, whereupon, they imprisoned her in a jar and closed the lid.

My own interpretation is that she not only prophesied, but kept saying "I told you so."

I think about Sybil every time I google one of my old DU threads for the purpose of showing that "I told you so."
