However, to be completely honest, I couldn’t really tell you that I believe in them all that much. They have always had this confusing, very vague tone to their message (Vague. SHOCKING I know). This always led me to the assumption that there’s literally no way for someone to guess how your day (year, month, or whatever type of horoscope you looked at) will go according to the position of extraterrestrial balls of fire in the sky....   [tags: Future, Prediction, Astrology, Futurology]

The Different Forms of Golf Balls According to the Dimples

It is about a little boy, who for the first time in his young life, is learning what it is like to experience grief at the loss of a much beloved possession - his ball.
