- Neither of the correct answers were particularly difficult to get right; August/September is the middle of Florida's hurricane season, and Pope John Paul II was seriously ill when Sylvia predicted his demise.
- Browne's record of predicting presidential elections, as analyzed here, is 43% correct (basically worse than random guessing).
Although this is obviously not a definitive list, it is a reasonable representation of the types of predictions Sylvia Browne makes. The accuracy rate appears to be fairly standard for a celebrity psychic.
