She paid good money for this. Does she look pleased with her purchase to you?
Humans have invented some pretty wacky ways of predicting the future over the centuries, but this man might just have found the strangest.
This brief video, apparently posted from China, is said to show an elderly man trying to tell a woman’s fortune by brushing near her breast as she looks on, baffled.
Actually, it appears that he is grabbing her shirt?
The short clip was posted to video-sharing site Miaopai and shows the man, holding a pair of crutches in his other hand, sitting impassively as he puts his hand inside the woman’s top.
He appears unmoved by what he sees in the woman’s future, as she rests her chin on her hand and even looks bored.
Bystanders also seem bemused by the spectacle, captured by a user called Xiao Yuwen and which has garnered hundreds of thousands of views.
The post prompted sceptical responses from commenters. One suggested it might be “hard to find customers” and another said: “It’s just really kinky!”
Branches of divination in China that have found a more mainstream degree of acceptance include palm reading, face reading and astrology.

Normally, breasts are in the news for other reasons, primarily breastfeeding. Consider what happened to one woman recently:
Everyone in the restaurant was having a nice time, until one man decided to poke the Mama Bear…
Kelly Stanley was enjoying a nice dinner with her family, when her infant became hungry. Acting naturally, Kelly started nursing her baby. This is where the dinner outing took a turn for the worst.
Below is the story, in her own words:
“So. I was at dinner last night and, as always, had my baby with me. Maya (9 months) was getting irritable, and I knew what she needed. She needed to nurse, so of course I pull my shirt down to feed and comfort her.”
“[Someone] at the dinner table then grabs one of those cloth napkins and tries to toss it over me. I asked him what he was doing, and he said he was trying to cover me. We were at Bonefish, and apparently that is too ‘nice’ of a restaurant to nurse a baby uncovered.”
“I wish I could say I was polite and respectful about the situation. Actually, I lied. I don’t wish that. I went off on him and I’m glad I did. You know why? Because the gesture was humiliating. Because no woman should ever feel like she is being inappropriate or immodest by feeding her baby, anywhere, ever.”
“Breastfeeding is NOT indecent exposure. It’s not inviting men to gawk at my breasts. EVEN IF GOD FORBID THE BABY UNLATCHES AND THEY SEE MY BARE NIPPLE. No, I’d rather not pull my shirt down in a public place or a nice restaurant. I’d rather people NOT see my stretch marked breast or scratched nipples. But you know what? We can’t sit here and tout that breast is best and then have a fit about how inappropriate it is to feed a baby in public.”
