More Fire (Pig)!

In between all the Myanmaresque musings, I just thought it would be appropriate to enlighten all those who don't know that this is not just the year of the pig, my Chinese Zodiac sign and the last in the 12-sign Zodiac, but in fact the year of the fire pig.

Now this dude who claims to be a mystic, shaman type sangoma dude (who was in fact just a shady old berg with BO) at the Shwe Dagon Paya in Yangon already read my future (for one kyat - about $0.8) and said "This year, my friend, you're going to be 100% lucky", but for a skeptic like myself I thought I'd just double-check. So I checked a Chinese horoscope website, which gave my rating as 49%, thus now I have empirical evidence that, without an iota of doubt, I am 74.5% lucky this year.

So as my friends The Rudimentals always say: "Yo yo, hog diggidly dog piglet, show us MORE FIRE!"

sorry to rain on your porkish parade :) trust me those readings are just fatuous lies to distract one from paying attention to guard one's money... those people never dare to tell thier customer the truth, because that would make the person who receives the reading unhappy, then that would be bad marketing :)... another example :), if one has been to those chinese restaurants in the west, at the end of the meal, you're given a fortune cookie... this type of distraction is to divert one's attention from realizing how much one had been overcharged. :)
as you can see, those you were born under the sign of the delisted, outcast planet Pluto, you're not going to win anything, so forget about the statistical odds... however, there were other well-known pigs in history like charles manson, jeffrey dahmer, joe rifkin, moses sithole, ted katszinky hahahhahaa :)
just kidding :) , you might win the myanmar lottery!

Well that is a bit of a gammonesque let down, but I'll keep my snout clean and keep my trotters crossed nonetheless, thanks for the ham-like humour :)

No doubt you will have a fab year, Piglet! I started my pig year by being quite greedy & getting myself a 500GB external hard drive, enough space to store my brain, just in case...!!!

This little piglet here has started his tet by spending almost all of his small savings....

Onward to a lucky year!

500GB - that's enough to store half of Saigon's brains...
