Jemima Packington, Asparamancer, Predicts The Future Using, Well, Asparagus

Predicting the future has officially jumped the shark. In the video clip below, asparamancer Jemima Packington throws a bunch of asparagus on the ground and based on how the stalks land, somehow predicts the weather. She says she's has a lot of luck with this technique and has successfully prognosticated events that had to do with the British royal family and politics. Packington has been at the asparagus-future game for several years.

Doubtful? You can always try it for yourself, though asparagus isn't really in season until May.
