Apparently, there is a way to backdate your Facebook statuses. But, I guess, literally no one ever uses it, because one man took advantage of it to trick hundreds of thousands of people into thinking he was psychic.

Pablo Reyes posted this backdated Facebook status, predicting everything that was going to happen this year.
