Default Your Guys' Take on Fortune Tellers

Prescience? Real? Fake? Still waiting to see?

Thinking about going to one. Got some questions that need answers.

i wonder if the the correlation between belief in fortune tellers and residence in bakersfield is significant.

here is your fortune: a fool and his money are soon parted.

my grandmother went to a "fortune teller" before she decided that god was coming to take her away and she racked up an absurd credit card debt. She also suffered from syphilitic hysteria and I'm not joking.

I've even had a ghost experience.

When I was little, I got into a fight w/ my family and they went to the mall. I heard my curtains opening and closing from the living room. I got freaked out and ran into the backyard. Sister picked me up and took me to her work.

First and only so far.

I'm a man of science. I graduated w/ a biology degree and have a doctorate and am currently applying for a masters in specialty school. Some things I can't just deny.

I think you are reaching w/ your correlation.

I had an experience with a "spirit" one time. I lit all kinds of candles and was watching "The Anna Nicole Smith Show" in a seance type of ritual. Needless to say, I had sex with the ghost of Anna Nicole Smith. It turned out that even as an apporition, I still got crabs from her.

I like spirits, mostly tequilla, sometimes whiskey, I often talk to them and they sometimes tell me the future. That future usually involves waking up duct taped to a folding chair in strange apartments.

Ever seen that movie Pee-Wee's Big Adventure? He goes to see the fortune teller and she "divines" all this info about him by looking through his wallet. Then several years later he was caught masturbating in a movie theater, and several years after that he was caught with child ****. All because of that damn fortune teller.

Pee Wee Herman was god. That fortune teller made an *** out of him and told him his bike was in the basement of the Alamo. He even wasted his money on her advice. I think there is a lesson to be learned here.

Neither have I, and I've lived here 21 of my 30 years. It's a backwards town, everyone tweaks and is on gov't assistance. Worst of all, all they play is Nickelback on the radio. However, the pay is probably almost double compared to LA.

It's a strange city. It pays more and it's cheaper to live, opposite of how most cities are ran.

I consulted the easter bunny, santa and the tooth fairy. They all agree, fortune tellers and psychics are legit. But really what the **** do they know?

Fortune Tellers and their ilk are nothing but scam artists that prey on the ignorant. Do you honestly think that if someone had the talent to foresee the future that they would be doing palm readings for $20 a session? Give me a break, they'd be winning the lottery every week. Or cashing in on the stockmarket.

Take your hard earned money and visit a *****, at least you know when you've just payed to be fucked. Jesus, don't be a ******* idiot.
