Yesterday my inbox was full of emails from a plethora of fortune tellers promising to tell me my fortune for 2016. For my part, all I had to do to receive an in-depth astrological reading that would set me up for the year, was to part with money! Since I believe in self-determination, naturally I declined. Had the 47 Shia individuals beheaded in the Sunni-ruled kingdom of Saudi Arabia on New Year’s Day for alleged terrorist offences paid for online astrological readings at the end of 2015, would their imminent demise have been predicted? Frankly, I doubt it! Fortune teller are loath to part with bad news! Meanwhile, ISIS terrorists must be playing catch-up! Thankfully the Guinness Book of World Records don’t include ‘beheadings’ in their annuals, otherwise this cruel form of capital punishment might trend!
