Good Omens: The Nice And Accurate Prophecies Of Agnes Nutter, Witch

"... nice also means 'scrupulously exact.'"

I've never thought about that before, yet the second definition at M-W online is "2a : showing fastidious or finicky tastes : particular b : exacting in requirements or standards : punctilious. " The third is similar, "3: possessing, marked by, or demanding great or excessive precision and delicacy " I've used it in this way but it's definitely not the most common usage.

So Agnes's prophecies are accurate - not "nice" in terms of politeness or kindness. And we got ourselves a war here, people! I always enjoy a classic struggle of good versus evil and this is literally that.
