i just realized something pretty eerie.

when U2 performed during the Superbowl halftime in 2002, they played "Where the Streets Have No Name" -- that has lyrics "the city's aflood, and our love turns to rust..."

the Superbowl was in New Orleans.

i know it's just a vague coincidence, but still.

sorry if this has been mentioned already.

Also weird: in that same performance, Bono changed the lyrics of "I wanna take shelter/From the poison rain" to "I wanna take shelter/From the Louisiana rain". Then, post-Katrina, he was changing it to "I wanna take shelter/From the hurricanes".

The crazy thing is, on the Chicago DVD, recorded almost four months before Katrina, Bono does the "from the hurricane" line, and so, when the DVD was released about three months after Katrina, it was creepy.

And then there's the eerieness of the middle-8 of Please, which was written and recorded about five years before 9/11...

Bono knows things O_O

Meep! Dude, if he starts writing lyrics about/changing lyrics to reference a coming apocalypse, run for the hills.

Clearly, Bono is actually Rain Man.

Literally, that is; think the X-Files Rain Man, as opposed to the d-d-definitely Rain Man.
