Didn’t like your last palm reading? Get a new palm!

This is insane. Besides that fact that you believe you can change your destiny by changing the lines on your palm, you are CUTTING into your palm! Not smart.

Life gets whole new makeover – The Standard.

For the Koreans, those lovers of all things beautiful and cosmetic surgeons, have now turned the scalpel, the electric scalpel that is, to the palms to alter those lines on them that dictate destiny.

All that is needed is 10 to 15 minutes out of one’s miserable existence, plus the burning of the flesh to alter between five and 10 lines, and that stage of life is history.

I can’t even begin on how nonsensical this is. Please get anyone who considers doing this some much needed psychological help – they have a very warped grasp on reality and themselves. But curiously, the mistaken notion of how the body works is long-established in the history of palmistry.

Here is what palmistry is:

Palmistry, also known as chiromancy, is the practice of telling fortunes from the lines, marks, and patterns on the hands, particularly the palms.

The authors of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Palmistry, Robin Giles and Lisa Lenard, claim that “palmistry works because your hand changes as you do.” They claim to have a few anecdotes to back them up on this, but fail to produce any scientific support for the claim. They also think that cloning makes it much easier for us to understand how palmistry works. “Palmistry is possible because you are represented in your hand. No two hands are alike because you–and your cells–are unique.”

Plastic Surgery Palmistry Slapped Down By Experts.

If you don’t like your what your palm reader is telling you, maybe all you need is a new palm.

An appointment Takaaki Matsuoka might be in your future. The Japanese doctor is a leading advocate of plastic surgery palmistry, wherein electric scalpels are employed to change the lines in a person’s palm.

The operations cost about $1,100 and take about 10 to 15 minutes, plus one month recovery time for the new wounds.

Palmistry has never been proven to have any basis in reality, but Masuoka claims that some of the 20 patients who’ve had a yen for the operations have been lucky afterwards.

Lucky? They are out some money and to justify such an act including the surgery, they will attribute anything good that next comes along to their new good “luck”. This is terrible.
