    OK, let's all get our 8-ball out ... I know you bastids got em' :hihi:

    Hey, Rabalais ... one more question ...

    About the Auburn game ... will LSU stomp a mudhole in AU & Tubby again?

    I shook my 8-ball so violently ... imagining I had my hands round Tubby's chicken neck ... I thought it would explode with so many little bubbles trying to get out ... I let it sit on the table for a few minutes until my curiousity got the better of me ... then I looked ... :hihi:

    The answer: :eek: ~Y~E~S~ :eek:

    Now you guys know how I predict the game scores so closely :wink:

    Well ramah, I agree your predictions for them last 3 games was pretty damn close.

    If you think about it, the Arkansas game could easily have been 62-24, had Saban not called off the dogs.

    Then the GA game should have been 41-13 as LSU missed a FG and had a TD called back for some unknown reason and we had to settle for a FG.

    The OU game should have been 24-0. We missed what should have been an easy FG which turned into a mysterious 25 yards of penalties and a much longer try. And of course we pretty much handed OU 14 points. It definitely should have been a shutout.

    So Cudos to you on your prognosticating.

Divination is often dismissed by skeptics as being mere superstition. However, advocates say there is plenty of anecdotal evidence for the efficacy of divination. Divination is a universal cultural phenomenon which anthropologists have observed as being present in virtually all religions and cultures in all ages up to the present day.

    The way to do fortune-telling with the ball is as follows: Hold the ball with the window down. Ask a yes-no question, then turn the ball so that the window faces up. In the window, one face of the die will be visible. It will show a response to your question.
