Well, I'm sure we are not the only ones doing this, so I beg your indulgance...javascript:emoticon(':wink:')

We have several gumball machines. These will be filled with capsules containing a fortune/prophecy/prediction and a little gift. Kinda like fortune cookies,

Please contribute a brief fortune (they will be written on slips of paper 1/2 inch by 3 inches).

The people in the camp next to you are talking about you behind your back.

Rocket Bob is the one stealing your dirty underwear.

You will go on a long trip. Coming down will take several weeks.

Your true love will be marching in Critical Tits. It will be a man.

Everyone says you're cool. No one believes it.

You're going to wish you brought more of your medication.

You will be the life of the party when you fall drunkenly into the fire.

You won a free cup of Coffee! Redeem at Center Camp Cafe.

Your fortune was better last year.

Help, I'm being held captive in this gumball machine!

You're good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like you.

Oh, this is fun!

Today: you look fabulous. Tomorrow: not so hot.

A mix-up of lube and sun screen will reveal unintentional results.

You will be unfairly blamed for gas you did not pass.

Carrie's Mom was right: They're all going to laugh at you.

The Feds are watching you and then sending reports to your Mom.

You will find a treasure at the bottom of a PortaPotty tomorrow.

Whatever you do, don't look behind you.

You left the iron on at home.

You're S.O. is cheating on you with your mother.

You were adopted.

You forgot to lock the front door behind you when you left.

You're shoe is untied.

Maybe you could color code the messages in such a way so as to be able to figure out which message each person receives from a distance. Then you can make that fortune come true for them on the spot.

Say someone gets a message that reads "You will be caught in an unexpected rain shower" as soon as they read it, you could pour a bucket of water over them.

Well, maybe not that, but you get the idea.

Well, an unexpected rain shower could be a water gun, and "Someone will offer you an ice cold beer" could come true.

I see great wealth in your future...oh wait, that's somebody else's future.

There is toliet paper stuck to your shoe.

You will take a trip soon, to a far desert place.

You will meet a thirsty traveller.

Today will be sunny and hot with a low chance of precipitation.

You are up for a promotion at work, but since you're not there,it will go to somebody else.

Do not pee on the playa!

Open your heart.

Keep ya head up.

Ask someone to dance within this evening and something lovely will happen.

It's now or never.

You will meet the love of your life this week.

Free your ass and your mind will follow.

This is it.

The shoe is on the other foot.

What are you waiting for?

Seek and you shall find.

You must let go of the past.

Let it be.

Get over it.

You must give that which you most need.

You are here.

You will have a humbling experience.

It's not all about you.

Carpe diem.

You will have a life-changing experience.

Play again.

Yes is the answer.

It's up to you.

If you decide to wear undies on your head, make sure they're clean.

No time like the present.

You win!!

Get lost, and find yourself.

Knowing is irrelevant.
