The Magic 8-ball is one of the most powerful ways to connect with our future available to humankind. It allows us to view the world from a 360-degree perspective, to peer into our futures via the watery portal at the top. Aside from its mystical influences, it infuses our lives with vitality, invokes our intuitive abilities, and invites us to imagine the vast possibilities for creating peace on earth and perfect manuscripts, oh tidings of comfort and joy.
Okay, maybe that's a wee bit hyperbolic. How's this: Magic 8-ball = a fun party game. You set the boundaries with the questions you ask, and I promise not to cheat in relating its answers.
The rules, they are simple:
- DO address the Magic 8-Ball with all due respect ("Oh Magic 8-Ball…" or something similar).
- DO submit Yes/No questions.
- DO concentrate as you click on the "post comment" button.
- DO ask as many questions as you'd like, but enter them as separate comments.
- DON'T be deterred if the Magic 8-Ball tells you to ASK AGAIN LATER.
- While you're waiting for the Magic 8-Ball's 2011 predictions, take a quick glance in the rear view mirror. What did you ask the Magic 8-Ball on New Year's Eve 2010, and how accurate were its answers?
- DON'T take the Magic 8-Ball too seriously, but please accept my sincere wishes for the happiest New Year ever!
