Platitude cookies

Teach oneself by exploring the old

and deducing the new

That’s what my fortune cookie said. Very nice. Good thematic match for the blog.

Unfortunately (heh), it’s not a fortune. It’s a platitude or an aphorism or some such device. “Someone is going to drop a piano on your head next Tuesday” – now that’s a fortune. These cookies are of disappointingly little predictive value.

  1. This is exactly why I’d like to get into creating my own line of fortune cookies.

    Real fortunes (sorta) to freak out the superstitous and amuse the rest. That piano one’s a great start.
