He should have known

It would seem that nothing bad should ever happen to psychics. I mean, they can predict the future, right. So they should be able to avoid mishaps, don't you think. Especially those like this.

IF HERVE VANDROT, a French amateur psychic, took out a warranty on his crystal ball, he may soon be claiming on it. Instead of predicting that his flat would catch fire, the fortune-telling device was the cause of the blaze.
M Vandrot, 24, who is studying botanics at Edinburgh University, left the ball on his windowsill while he visited the city’s Royal Botanic Garden. By the time he returned, the ball had destroyed his own and two other flats, and had left several others uninhabitable.

Maybe, just maybe, he can't really see into the future. Maybe.
