Fortune Telling Fish

Fortune Telling Fish

Fortune Telling Fish

I picked up these Fortune Telling Fish at Pier One Imports a few weeks ago (I know I'm stretching my animal-themed blog by including them). What's so cool about them is that we had these things when I was growing up in the early 60's -- this is what we did for fun back then. Anyway, seeing them was like a mini-trip down memory lane. To get a closer look, just click on the photo.

According to the back of the package, this means I'm passionate. But since it had turned over, it might mean I'm false. I suppose I'll have to try it again. You see, hours of fun! Who needs video games?

Wow, haven't seen those things in a while!

And to answer your question, I DO!

Well, I tried it again, NT, and the darn thing rolled right off my palm. Must mean I want to escape -- escape the major snowstorm we've been experiencing for the past 2 days, I think. And I agree that the entertainment value of these fish is limited. Bring on the video games.

Is that like a gooey mood ring? I've never seen those before. Do you flush them after they've read your mood?

Snowstorm? Really? Eeeeps.

Georgie said...

Sort of reminds me of those crystal balls from years ago that you shook, and they gave you your fortune.

Interesting.

Lynn Sinclair said...

Raggs, they're not gooey, they're pliable plastic film. And no, you don't flush these guys -- just put 'em away for another day.

Lynn Sinclair said...

Georgie, my daughter has one of those 8 balls -- they haven't changed since I was a kid.

This is a good concept in principle and the reason why these designers include
plenty of animation is it really is beneficial in grabbing and retaining the notice of visitors towards
the site. If a website requires two full screens of scrolling or even more, simply
split it into multiple pages. Another limitation tends to get that precious
few graphics packages can yet export to SVG besides Adobe Illustrator 9 and Photoshop 6.
