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.
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...
Oh you will be scrying into a mirror or crystal in no time.
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.
I have always lived my life by them, although I seem to remember one that had me a bit worried.
Hey, earnest, whatever works, you know?
Obviously, they have some power down under!
I dunno though, I have a friend who read one and went off to wrestle crocodiles in the NT.
Hey, if it gave him some gusto, I say "All hail the cookie of fortune!
So it's called "gusto" where you come from?
Depends on who you ask! I always think "what the hell?" If it adds some excitement to your life, give it a shot!
What was it? "You have just eaten Skippy's crispy balls"? XD
See I learn something new every day! A believer with a sense of humor who knows something about a country other than his own?
Are you welsh? I feel pretty sure you're not an American Republican from the deep south.
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.
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?
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?
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.
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.
I may have to play with that. What a great idea!

So - this is a little weird. One of my friend's kids asked me to help him set up a website. It so happens I had a domain lying around that was perfect - so I set him up.Now I discover he thinks he is a Werewolf - a real one - and this is why he wanted the website - to talk about his werewolf-ism...
