Today's Stichomancy, and a little zen.

You know, I can think of a few people today that I’d like to tell to just shut the f-up… only because sound logic would be wasted on ’em. Politics. I’m just going to let it drop…It’s simpler to argue with a velvet painting of dogs playing cards.

Here in Hsueh-t’ou Mountain
a rapid waterfall dashes
down thousands of feet.
Here nothing stays,
not even the tiniest chestnut.
An awesome cliff rises
up thousands of feet
with no space for you to stand.
My friends, may I ask:
Where do you proceed?

I pull Off on a Comet by Jules Verne from the library and opening to a random page I read the following…

“You think, then,” said Servadac, with a smile, “you have determined the perihelion of our orbit; but how about the aphelion? Can you form a judgment as to what distance we are likely to be carried?”
“You are asking too much,” remonstrated the count.

“I confess,” said the lieutenant, “that just at present I am not able to clear away the uncertainty of the future; but I feel confident that by careful observation at various points we shall arrive at conclusions which not only will determine our path, but perhaps may clear up the mystery about our geological structure.”

Hmm..looks like I shook the 8-ball, and got “Future uncertain”.

Basically it tells me to pay attention, and learn from my conclusions. That I shall. Careful observation is good advice to anyone, I think.

Waterspouts off the coast today… I want to go see ’em!
