Several centuries ago there was a guy that had a parlor trick.
He would ask his friends to write down a year in the future on a piece of paper while he was blindfolded.
He would then sniff the paper, sniff the ink and sniff the hand of the writer and then make a prediction of what would happen in the future year.
He kept a record of all of these predictions made over many such sessions of sniffing the paper, ink and hand.
Amazingly, as time passed, his prophesies for each year turned out to be true.
The man’s true name is lost to us in history, but, of course, we know him as NOSTRIL-DAMUS!!!
