The Magic 8-Ball Says...




The Magic 8-Ball says that I am about to run aground in a spectacularly unpleasant way.

Interesting fact about the 8-Ball: A friend of mine, the infamous Dr. Nigel Nuband, conducted a little research, and discovered that the 8-Ball has twenty possible responses -- and of those, 15 are positive. The other five mix negative and neutral responses. So when you ask your questions, make sure to phrase them so that a positive answer will make you happiest.
