On CNNGo.com a tarot card reader admitted that the service she provided was psychological more than anything cosmic. This backs up my opinion that paying to talk to a psychic is pretty dumb.
Most people don't need a palm reader. They need a therapist or a life coach who can help teach them how to grow a backbone and stop wondering if they will ever find love, or if they are on the right career path.
Life is full of questions and dad-gummit, it burns us up when we can't get an answer quickly and concisely and so we resort to paying magical wizards who prey on our fear of the unknown. Instead of making choices and following through for a while until answers are clear we freak out, hit speed dial and get Dionne Warwick on the horn.
We have a universal fear of "wasting our time" but any experience whether it feels wasted or not is at the end of the day what is called living. The least you can do is hang onto your dinero and stay away from these crackpots!
No one needs to listen to me but since you are already reading and this if free, I can give you the same advice a tarot card reader would give you, but right here on Dumb as a Blog!
Question: I hate my job and feel like I am not developing any new skills. Am I on the right career path?
Madame Brooke: NO. QUIT.
Question: Will I ever find my true love?
Madame Brooke: What are you doing talking to me on a Saturday night? Get out of here and get your booty on the dance floor you fool. Love isn't going to find itself!
Question: Will I ever be rich?
Madame Brooke: Are you willing to partake in illegal activities? You've got options if so.
Question: Will I live a long life?
Madame Brooke: As long as you have a lot of fiber in your diet, stay hydrated, eat leafy greens and keep your heart rate up, you should be good. If God has other plans for you then I'm not sure what to say because we don't work together.
Question: I'm afraid I will die alone and forlorn. Is there truth to this?
Madame Brooke: Hmmmm. This is a tough question to ask and I highly suggest you keep coming to see me so we can find the answer together because I really hate being alone, too. Here's my card. After 10 visits, the 11th is free.
