Was the thing he predicted something of a public nature (eg he predicted the next governor of California and was amused that he got it right)? Or was it of a personal nature (eg he predicted he would win a million dollars in the lottery and was amused when he did)?

Would he have found the event amusing in itself? Or was it the fact that he'd predicted it that made it amusing?

How many other people were aware of the prediction before the event actually occurred? Were they equally amused?

"but I bet he'd still be amused"... does he know about "it" having 'not quite' happened? Do many people? Is 'it' a newsworthy event?
Would he have been more amused if things had happened exactly as he predicted?

Did he predict an "event"? a condition? a series of events? a movement? an idea? a fashion? something else?

So, a currently living American male predicts a series of events which some years later almost happen. The events are related to death ... yet caused amusement to the predictor and others!

How many years between the prediction and the events? 1? 2? 3? 4? .... 100?

Is "he" someone we might have heard of?
Are the events somethings we might have heard of?

Did any people actually die as a result of their involvement with the events of this puzzle? Seriously injured? mildly injured?

Were any animals hurt or killed during the production of this puzzle?
