The End-To-End Simian Lines Across Both My Palms — As In Palmistry.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. This morning’s Facebook post that got me going.


My palms with their end-to-end Simian Lines.

About 10% of the worldwide population have ONE Simian line — with the incidence among Asians higher than with other races.

Having an end-to-end Simian lines, going across both palms, is much rarer — about 3% of the worldwide population. Yes, it is supposed to indicate possible latent health issues. Total bunkum. I will get to that in a second.

I grew up in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where palm reading is a way of life. I got many comments about my hands — the most memorable from an uncle who was a prominent doctor. “Hhhhmmm. We will have to keep an eye on you. I have only seen hands like this once … and that was with …“. It was a notorious ‘criminal’!

BUT, in the end, astrology notwithstanding, my hands show I am LESS evolved than others! Yep, I am more primitive.

Yes, it is the primeval palm crease from our way distant ancestors and it is common among the other primates. So, I know the truth.

It will NOT be spectacular, and it is definitely not a great comet, BUT, it is expected to be naked eye visible and it will be — WITHOUT FAIL — appear the week before Christmas 2018. It is Periodic Comet with a 5.4 year orbital period. So, it is a well known comet and one that is not going to fizzle away as did MY comet ISON in 2013.

This is just the initial heads-up. I just found out about it today. I will keep you posted. Promise.

Just mark it on your calendar. December 16, 2018 — COMET!

Exciting. We haven’t had a decent naked eye visible comet in DECADES!

This is in MY driveway. I took the picture this morning and thought NOTHING of it. I was going to include it in my ‘6 Also Rans‘ for the day when it struck me. Yes, it could be just I. That is why I said ‘virtually’. What do you think? Cracked me up.

Passing Of Microsoft Co-Founder, Paul Allen, At 65, Signifies The End-Of-An-Era; PCs Have Now Reached Old Age.

Wow. This came as a shock. 65. I think that struck a chord. Same age as me but eight-months older.

Never met him and really never knew too much about him. Knew he was the real brains behind Microsoft and that he was a genuine philanthropist. Did NOT realize he never married or had any kids.

He always came across as a decent bloke. Nicer than Bill, I think.

Shame. All that wealth and it couldn’t save him from cancer. Eerily similar to Steve Jobs. What is it with this? Have you given it any thought?

It is the END of an era. PCs, Windows and Microsoft are no longer new or ‘recent’. They have all reached old age..

Paul Gardner Allen (1953 – 2018), RIP
