Please Tell Me They’re Just Kidding

So I went to YouTube yesterday to look for a hymn; and there in the middle of the home page, I found this message which I reproduce here, word for word:

“Get a personalized tarot card reading in the interactive experience [huh?] featuring your favorite YouTube Creatives.” [“Creative” got turned into a noun when I wasn’t looking.]

I don’t consider it spiritually healthy to play around with occult mumbo-jumbo, so I passed on the invitation to Click Here. Even if there’s nothing to it–well, wait a minute: that makes it worse, doesn’t it?  Open the door, and you don’t know what’ll come in.

What’s next, YouTube? Ouija boards? That sounds promising. Join your favorite Creatives and Influencers in an online Ouija board session! Yeesh. I saw a British horror movie once in which the haints got into a TV network’s electronics and gave the hapless humans a really bad time.

My computer has enough troubles without getting the occult involved.

  1. One of the professors where I did my graduate work, an internationally noted scholar, used to have nervous breakdowns periodically. My own dissertation director, a friend of hers, said she always knew when a breakdown was imminent because the professor had started playing with tarot cards and the ouija board. And in fact I watched it begin to happen while I was studying there: First the tarot cards, then the ouija board, then the bizarre behavior, then the time off for “illness.”
