For lunch this particular day I decided to patronize a large chinese buffet approximately the edge from my office. After finishing both my meal and also my document the examine was delivered along with the normal fortune cookie. I admit that I have to be rather sick and also twisted as I actually favor the method the damned things taste, yet when ns cracked this one open up it to be empty; absolutely nothing inside, not even a empty piece that paper. I"m not at every superstitious however I have to confess that I automatically felt a empty ache in mine gut.So is this considered a bad omen of part sort?

Well...I dunno.I did acquire a empty one a few months ago, however the following day I acquired a cookie with 5 really great fortunes in it.I don"t remember noþeles particularly good or bad happening, Check out image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I mean you"re right, currently that you point out it I do remember acquiring some v multiple fortunes in the past. I probabaly shouldn"t worry. See image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, as lengthy as that didn"t to speak "this happiness was purposely left blank", I figure you"re ok. Watch image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifJoS

slightly OT, but I thought I"d share:The chinese restaurant I regular has the pure worst (best?) fortune cookie ever.Examples: One night, mine fortune claimed "You space the master of every situation View image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif " (smily included). Now, that"s really awful, but funny in ~ the very same time. That same night, mine brother acquired a luck that proclaimed simply "You gain playing competitive sports." WTF is that? That"s no a damn fortune! If I want to have people making inaccurate guesses about me, I"d speak to one the those damn psychic lines. Not just that, however it was (and is) fully inaccurate.View image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

There is one near me that has the greatest fortunes of all time.They space all in terrible english and make for sure no sense whatsoever.The last one I gained I kept due to the fact that it to be so cursed funny."You are the peace of the green fields of sky."-SS see image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

How about: "To advertise in this space, please call 555-1212." check out image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifI"d think an empty fortune cookie is more an indication of bad quality control. See image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

In the vein of fortune cookie lore....I when stopped top top my way to the airport because that chinese. The resturant was no in the town where there airport was, about 45 minute drive as I recall (In SD, wherein it doesn"t take lengthy to get anywhere IN town, just forever to get in between towns)...the fortune..."You are around to embark ~ above a lengthy journey" ....

I acquired a bunch that had double fortunes.I gained one I preferred a lot a pair weeks ago..."You will move to a wonderful brand-new home in ~ the year."woohoo!! I gain to move out! watch image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifw00zy

Have any of you viewed Fox"s ads for "The Tick"?The tick starts eating a happiness cookie without taking out the fortune. That realizes there"s a piece of document in his mouth, takes that out and says "Look, it"s a an enig message. . .from mine teeth."Hopefully the entire series will be that an excellent : )

... In bed.I don"t think it might be considered bad luck since it"s part crap we comprised anyway. They"re about as Chinese as Pizza.

I think it"s its way of saying the your future isn"t written for you anymore. Time come live your very own life.

I obtained one that said "You love Chinese Food" see image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif watch image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ~Caru

I constantly get one that states "I"m a nice and generous person" the trouble is that ns am hardly ever the one who pays because that my meal, so as soon as my girlfriend (the human who typically pays for all food once we go the end in a group) look at this, he it s okay pissed. His luck cookies commonly say something choose "You need to be a much more generous person" check out image: /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
