    I never thought about making this poll until after a fortune cookie I ate a while ago. When I read the message, it said that I would travel by air in the future. The funny thing is, in July, I'll be flying to Pakistan to visit family. I've also noticed that many fortune cookies that I've read are accurate as well. What about you guys?

    It's a little hard to say. I've never had a fortune that was relevant to anything. At all.

    I once got one that said, "The new tie attracts soup of the day". If there's any mystical eastern wisdom in that it's certainly beyond me.

    None are accurate and I think they should put some bad fortunes in them, nothing too cruel or derogatory, just stuff like "danger looms in your future" just to be realistic.

    I've never had one that's been even close to being correct.

    It can be strange but it doesnt mean its real. Its just superstitious thats all. People are hallucination over this, thats ridiculous. The same for voodoo.. Scary!

    It's all just superstition. I think believing in superstition is bad luck.

    A bad luck is a superstition as well so I dont believe in "good and bad luck". They are not good at all. [​IMG]

    I opened one and it said " [​IMG] You look pretty [​IMG] "
    Well wasn't much of a fortune, but it did make my day better ^///^

    True, but when I got it I was having a pretty horrible day, so it was just something small that made me smile.

    I'd have to go with scary accurate because I won $100 playing the numbers on my fortune cookie in keno.

    Most of the times they just have a general truth in them, like 'soon, you will eat something'. So of course they're accurate. Same goes for gypsies and all those people, they just tell you things anyone can notice but never says.

    Last one I had told me to watch my rivals when it comes to love.
    Next thing I know, one of my friends (but my biggest rivals when it comes to getting girls) turns out to know a very hot, sweet girl that I had been crushing on for some time already!
