Humans are mortal beings and the death of every individual is certain. Unhealthy lifestyles, long-term chronic disease, and old age are the main reasons behind someone’s death. Some people have psychic abilities by which they forecast their own death or someone else’s. And these death premonitions turn out to be incredibly true as well.
Here are 10 celebrities who had premonitions of their own death.
Abraham de Moivre was a French mathematician who is best known for his works on normal distribution and probability. He devoted all his life to mathematics and significantly contributed to it. He not only gave pathbreaking mathematical theories but also predicted his own death using numbers.
When Moivre started to age, his body experienced fatigue and he realized that he is about to die. With increased body fatigue, he allotted himself 15 extra minutes for sleep each day. Moivre predicted that when those intervals of 15 minutes will turn into 24 hours on November 27, 1754, he would die. Believe it or not, he died exactly on that date.
“I’m in the club to beef, you gotta murder me there.”

Mark Twain was a renowned American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer who is said to have predicted his own death with much accuracy. He was born 1975- the year which saw the appearance of Halley’s comet (seen once in every 75 years). In 1909, Mark Twain said,
“I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together”.
A year later in 1910, it did turn out to be true. Twain got a heart attack the very next day of Halley’s comet’s closest appearance was seen on 20 April.
One of the best basketball players of all time, Pistol Pete Maravich was an American basketball player who played for teams Utah Jazz and Atlanta Hawks during the 1970s. In 1974, he reportedly told the Beaver County Times newspaper in an interview,
“I don’t want to play 10 years in the NBA and die of a heart attack at 40.”
Maravich retired from NBA after playing for 10 years and six years later, he did die at the age of 40 due to a heart attack. What’s more disturbing is that he could have died at the age of 20 due to a rare and congenital heart defect, but he didn’t and died when he wanted to.

Kickin’ asbestos in the factory
