Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

The Buffalo Bills.

Not that they will win, but she likes them because they are the most spiritual. :notsure:

From QuackWatch:
Sylvia Browne, who predicted that she herself would live to age 88, died in November at the age of 77. Throughout her career as a "psychic," Browne claimed to diagnose health problems, communicate with the dead, sense what happened to missing persons, and even to have proven there is an afterlife. Critics have pointed out that (a) Browne took money—under false pretenses—from people who were emotionally vulnerable, (b) by inventing messages from or about lost loved ones, she could tarnish the true memories of these people, and (c) her medical diagnoses could lead people who trusted her to pursue incorrect diagnoses, waste money ruling them out, and/or ignore the advice of their own medical professionals. Browne's popularity was due in large part to her frequent appearances on the Montel Williams TV show, where she made predictions, answered questions about people's dead relatives, diagnosed health problems, and gave treatment advice to callers. Skeptics who tracked and evaluated her predictions have found that her accuracy rate was extremely poor. In one study that recently came to light, 31 fourth-grade students were asked to predict the outcome of eleven things that Browne has predicted for 2005. Browne was correct in only 3 of the 11 cases (27%), which was about half of what would be expected by pure guessing. One student made 8 correct predictions, five got 7 correct, nine got 6 correct, six got 5 correct, seven got 4 correct, two got 3 correct, and one got 2 correct. (In other words, 28 out of 31 did better than Browne, two did the same, and only one did worse.) Quackwatch has published a comprehensive report on Browne's activities.
