Called it chiromency or cheiromancy if you like but palmistry, the art of predicting the future through the study of the palm,is fun! It is said that the art has its roots in India. The Hindu sage, Valmiki is said to have written a book, "The Teachings of Valmiki Maharshi on Male Palmistry". The art spread to China, Egypt, Persia and Europe. Anaxagoras, a Pre-Socratic Greek philosopher is said to have practised it.

You don't have to use your nose to sniff, that is, if you are 'browser sniffing' - This 'sniffing' is just a technique used in websites and web applications to determine the web browser a visitor is using.

Whoever is Satan The Dark Prince? This is of course not Lucifer or the fallen angel in Judeo-Christian belief that I am refering to - I am talking more about a performer of 'Up There', a song written by Trey Parker.
Listen to Satan sings!
