Happen to be in Shanghai and want to delve into the culture of palmistry? A very legitimate machine in People’s Square Station will read your palm and tell you your fortune.
All you need to do is feed the machine three coins and stick your hand into the mouth of the ominous looking sculpture. No, it won’t bite, there’s a panel in the mouth with Latin words on it. In case you’re curious, “vita” means life, “fortuna” means luck, “amor” means love and “ingenium” means talent.
Afterward, it will print out everything that there is to know regarding your future on a small piece of paper (there is even a graph on it!).
Bet these people wish they had got their fortunes read while they were on the metro. Of course, there are some things that even an ancient Latin palm reader can not predict.
