hhahaha good story, yeah gotta watch out for 'em.

I was in Hong Kong with my mum and sister 3 years ago and went to this night market, one part has all these fortune tellers, so my mum and sis. decided to try one. After some stuff, the fortune teller tells my mum that she's gonna "meet a man, .... one who is short, fat and balding, and one to help you with your power trips or something" - i was like behind 'em video taping and i could help burst out laughing, had me and my sister in tears laughing - so funny, my mum like freaked out, but we still pay her out about her mystery 'short, fat, balding lover' hehe

Yeah i reckon a lot of the time, especially when someone predicts the future, its like they think about it so much that they actually make it happen.

So nikon your mum might be looking for this bald guy now!

Its funny how people dont mind if they get told their future and its good, but when they say, yeah your gonna be stuck in the same job for the rest of your like, everyone is like, hell give me my money back!!
