A while ago Matt and I were having lunch in a Chinese restaurant in Chicago. We were at Supercomm.

When the fortune cookies came, we were underwhelmed by the outlook they offered. Matt's was "You will be happy and healthy for quite a long time"; mine was "You never worry about the future".

We felt a sneaking suspicion that there was a hint of something missing; something with perhaps slightly pessimistic intent. "You will be healthy for quick a long time but after that things will take quite a nasty turn". "You never worry about the future but you should".

How about a new line of double-edged fortune cookies?
