I myself am a fan of astrology **-I have this e-mail alert which shows what my “**Horoscope of the Day” is. However, I have learned not to take it too seriously, it should all be in the spirit of fun.

But using stomach **noises to **predict **the future? Or tracking the movements of **mice? Despite that adorable film “Ratatouille”, I still have an aversion to these creepy rodents. How much worse will it be if they will be used to determine **what will happen **tomorrow?

Anyway, I bet that divination **by means of cheese, umbilical cord **movement **or arrows are done all in the s**pirit of fun - otherwise, they could be part of a black **witchcraft **thing that most of us would surely want nothing to do with.
