PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (Reuters) - Former Cambodian king Norodom Sihanouk says an astrologer warned him that an "ultra-catastrophic cataclysm" would strike, but that his country would be spared if proper rituals were conducted.
"My wife and I decided to spend several thousand dollars to organize these ceremonies so our country and our people could be spared such a catastrophe," Sihanouk, who abdicated last year, wrote on his Web site at www.norodomsihanouk.info.
Cambodia was unscathed by the 30-foot tsunami waves generated by a magnitude-9.0 earthquake under the sea off Indonesia's Sumatra island on Dec.26. The waves rolled through the Indian Ocean, devastating coastal communities and killing more than 126,000 people.
Sihanouk offered his deepest condolences to the families of the dead and said he would give "a very humble and extremely modest" contribution of $15,000 to international relief efforts for each of the stricken countries.
A Cambodian king walks around clapping his hands incessantly. A passerby asks why and the king says it's to keep tsunamis away. "But, there aren't any tsunamis here!" and the king responds "See, it's working!"
When did he get the warning? 5 years ago? When did he do the rituals? 4 years ago? Why didn't the astrologer help save all the other countries? Did the astrologer's rituals include moving islands and the coast of cambodia to either dodge or block the waves?
The Disaster didn't strike cambodia, because cambodia's in a totally different region. I'm 1000kms from the Canadian west coast. I did a ritual and guess what? All those waves in south east asia didn't get me! YAY thank god for astrology!
