Magic 8 Ball Predicts ZAP's acceptances/rejections!
« on: December 03, 2004, 02:28:05 PM »
I got this idea from someone on XOXOHTH who used a magic 8 ball to predict acceptances and rejections for one of those "where will I get in?" people.  So I made a list of my schools, and asked away.  I actually asked two different 8 balls... here are the answers they gave me (first one followed by second one).

Harvard: not likely - it is certain

Stanford: maybe - very doubtful

Chicago: not likely - most likely

Penn: yes - without a doubt

Michigan: too hazy - concentrate harder and ask again - as I see it, yes. (the second two of these opinions came off the second 8 ball, if you were wondering why there are 3)

Virginia: yes - outlook good

Duke: ha ha ha - yes, definitely

Cornell: get real - you may rely on it

Berkeley: maybe - cannot predict now

Georgetown: no - cannot predict now

UCLA: not likely - my reply is no

Vandy: get real - don't count on it

Minn: maybe - signs point to yes

GW: die well - my sources say no

WUStL: yes - my sources say no

Emory: no - it is decidedly so

W+L: yes - cannot predict now

Ohio State: ha ha ha - very doubtful


I think I like the second 8 ball better.  It was the official Hasbro one, so I'm sticking with it.  The first one must be an impostor, therefore everything it says (except the good stuff) must be wrong. ;)

I thought Mattel made the 8-ball?

It might have been them.  It was one of those big companies that makes plastic things.

Exactly.  I decided that 8-ball wasn't credible, and was in fact just playing games with me.

I can't believe you went down the list with one magic-8 ball, let alone two.  I've been concerned lately that I'm overly obsessed with law school admission and this makes me feel a whole lot better about my coping techniques.



(Pause)



I wonder where I can find a magic-8 ball?    :-\

whatever you do.. do not pick up one of the "sarcastic" magic-8 balls.. yes, they come in many different flavors now.. i had one of these once and it was so depressing that i threw it out of my window.  HTH

I saw one of those sarcastic ones, but after being discouraged by the whole "die well" one, I thought I'd pass on it.  Sounds good that I did.

Yeah, it was ridiculous to go down the entire list twice.  Other than the fact that A) I'm ridiculously bored today, and B) I'm ridiculously bored today.

Then there's also the fact that I just wanted to try out a couple different 8 balls to see what kinds of different answers they gave, because the first one didn't seem to be a traditional 8 ball.

As for finding one, just search on Google.  Several will come up.

Here is the link to my personal favorite online magic 8 ball.  The reason I like this one so much is that you type in your question rather than thinking it in your head or saying it aloud - i mean, really, do you expect the magic 8 ball to read your thoughts or 'hear' them through the computer?
