Assignment 2/6, due September 19th:

Predictor of Imminent Doom

Here are the art objects we've received for this assignment. Thanks everyone!

Searching for Guidance? Every Man (and Woman) knows the value of a good Prediction. It's the hunch you feel, usually registering in your Gut, and if you'd only followed that hunch you'd be living up the hill. Why not learn the tricks of Wall Street Bankers, Generals and Statesmen whose livelihoods depend on knowing what Imminent Doom the future holds. The problem was that few could afford such Predictors. We have been fortunate enough to make terms with Manufacturers of the best Predictors to enable us to sell them to you for only $2.00. The same quality, the same assurance as with more expensive models. Made from the purest Elements from forests in Paraguay and Guiana. Usually sold for $5.00. Yours for $2.00. If by mail, postage extra, 2 cents.

I want a device that predicts the future, and the imminent doom it holds. Find and modify an already-existing one or create one of your own.

Discuss your work in progress:
Actually, it's based of the electromagnetic energy in the human body (electrons of atoms) interacting with the object in question. People have been using that as the basis of "predicting" for centuries. Almost ever ancient culture used the pendulums above bodies to "predict" diseased or injured areas. Some folks use Neuroemotional techniques (NET) to directly ask a patients body for answers. It's rarely wrong if done correctly.

I've been trying hanging a piece of metal on a string so that it swings between two magnets. If it's positioned just right, the string seems to stop randomly at one of the magnets (without overly favoring one or the other). I have yet to decide which side represents DOOM.
This seems harder than a necklace....
HAHAHAHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! this is freaking hilarious! i cant believe someone would be so stupid!
