    I've just had a Chinese takeaway which included a couple fortune cookies. Is this a gateway to the black arts that I should stay away from?



    Sorry it's half ten at night here and I'm tired.

      haha
      I laugh, but I must admit that I get a creepy feeling when I open those fortune cookies.  But I put no stock in what they say.  The thing is, some people may, and that's....silly in a way but yes could be dangerous to their mindset just like delving too deeply into astrology, etc...

        The Chinese don't take them seriously...but that could be their PLAN!

    I'm pretty sure the Chinese don't take them seriously because they were an American invention.  My guess is that the OP was being a little on the silly side.

      They cannot take them very seriously, they are written in English.

              Depends on who you ask!  smile  I always think "what the hell?" If it adds some excitement to your life, give it a shot!

                I like your "what the hell" attitude, I suspect I have lived my life by it and still do! lol

        See I learn something new every day! A believer with a sense of humor who knows something about a country other than his own?

        I'm impressed!!!!


        Are you welsh? I feel pretty sure you're not an American Republican from the deep south. smile

          I'm an Englishman who's lived in Wales for the last 17 years. A load of my Father's family live in Oz, and I used to watch 'Skippy the Bush Kangaroo' as a kid. smile

            Some of my family came from Wales. I watch what I can of your beautiful country on TV documentaries. It looks picture post card yet as harsh as hell.
            I would like to visit Wales very much. How did you find Oz as a kid? smile

              Disappearingheadposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              I've never been to Oz myself. My father's family emigrated in the 60s as part of the £10 boat people. He joined the RAF and stayed in the UK. 'Skippy' was on UK Children's TV on Saturday mornings.

              Wales is beautiful yes, but after 17 years I think I'm rather tired of it to be honest. The Welsh too do have a different culture to the English. I'm still Saesneg.

                So back to England then? smile

                I think the current optimism around the royal wedding will give it a lift.
                It's a fairly big economy and it would not take too big a spend by the natives to get it rolling again, then like Australia it could start worrying about inflation. lol

    Not a gateway to the dark arts, but a few laughs. One of the guys at work got us all adding 'in bed' to the end of our fortunes. It makes for some funny reads.

        Oh, earnest, do!  My husband and I do it with EVERY fortune.  It's gets pretty amusing at times!
