Prophecies

#1  Postby Alan B » Feb 04, 2019 4:24 pm

I was reading a serious article in the Daily Express (yes, it does have them) and, while scrolling down, I came across this load of crap. Now, I know that the Express is a Right-Wing Rag, but this? So I Googled 'Daily Express Prophecies':
Nostradamus - 2019
Blood Moon
Book of Job
The Rapture
King Harry

And so on, page after page...

The Sun is similar but the Mail not so much it would appear.

Doesn't The Sun have Mystic Meg? Or is that Mystic Meh?

Jemima Packington, who claims to be the world’s leading Asparamancer, believes economic crisis will hit the US next year.

As an Asparamancer, Ms Packington claims to see the future in spears of asparagus tossed into the air.

Ms Packington said: “I’m able to interpret the patterns left by the asparagus. When I cast the asparagus, it creates patterns and it is the patterns I interpret.”

I...seeeeeee.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Does this thread cover astrology?

If so, can I just say that I hope it's taken seriously. For instance, how many of you know that today is the first day of the year of the Chinese pig (or the Chinese year of the pig or whatever) and the implications of that? I was listening to an eminent feng shui and astrology expert on BBC Radio 5 Live yesterday (who was also, as it happens, actually Chinese) and she made what I thought were some very good predictions. For instance, apparently, this year, I will face life challenges, in both my personal relationships and at work, and I will have to work to try to overcome them. I bet that turns out to be exactly right! It was certainly true last year and I believe she predicted it then also. How is that just a coincidence?

So, if I add '...mancer' to a word I can become, er, world famous. :think:

'Wankermancer'? (One counts the number of globules over a given distance :whistle: ). Female assistants could add a different dimension to the outcome...

Just on the asparagus thing. My wife does this, but with sausages. Sometimes I try to throw down an extra sausage in the hopes that she'll think mine is significant, but so far zilch.

No, not cocktail sausages, in case anyone was going to ask.
