William Thomas Stead
William Thomas Stead was an influential writer in Britain. He wrote many things that helped change the government in Britain. Some time before the Titanic, he wrote a piece for the Pall Mall Gazette titled 'How the Mail Steamer Went Down in Mid-Atlantic, by a Survivor'. It tells of an RMS(Royal Mail Service) Ship that collides with another ship and kills many - because of insufficient lifeboats. As a sidenote, he added 'This is exactly what might take place, and what will take place if the liners are sent to the sea short of boats.' A few years later, he wrote a similar story, but with a happy ending. These "psychic" powers are slightly creepy, but what makes the whole thing a weird coincidence is that William Thomas Stead died on the Titanic.
