I've had my Magic 8 ball since I was a teenager, and it has been a source of much-needed information over the years, mainly of the "Does the cute boy like me?" variety.

Within the outer shell is a 20-sided ball with ten positive, five non-committal, and five negative, random replies. Wise teenage girls know to ask questions with hoped-for positive responses because those have the best odds of appearing.

Oh sure, this is fun, no doubt. But it is not very accurate, is it?

I still use my Magic 8 ball, but instead of waiting for the reply to appear through the bubbly blue water in the now exceedingly hard-to-read response window, I hear a surprisingly accurate answer rise from within myself. I realize I never needed the Magic 8 ball at all.

How do you "divine" unseen knowledge? Where do you suppose that information comes from?
