Not sure where to put this. I was just thinking about these bizarre Robocop KFC ads. This sounds like something they would have had him do in Robocop 3. Which is part of the reason Robocop 3 sucked.
I'd buy that theory for a dollar!

I don't speak Spanish and half the time when I'm flipping through channels and somehow pause on Telemundo I think I've stumbled onto a porn channel by mistake, only there's never any nudity or sex.

There's also this one from South Korea, made in the 80s.

Astrology is still a scam and the reader is taking advantage of people that are hurting and searching for answers.  Sure, some people do it for occasional fun, like going to a casino, but there are plenty of people that get addicted and waste lots of money on it.

This starts to take the conversation to a different thread, but how is that any different than religion?

The obvious answer is that people can walk into a church/mosque/synagogue for free, they don't have to make a donation if they don't want to.  I guess there are some that make people pay to get in, but there are plenty that are open to all.

So I'll stick with the casino/gambling analogy.

You legit can look up anything to do with astrology for free if you have access to the internet, which anyone with access to a library has these days. Tarot is as simple as having a deck and the means to interpret it, which isn't difficult to come by, either, since you can get them online for about 20 bucks. You don't need to go to a mystic or anything.

Anyone can play casino games at home for fun/free, or do their religion at home without going anywhere, so the analogy still holds.  Spending a little once in a while is fine, but just know that who ever you give money to is also taking money from those that are addicted to it.

And then John Oliver has a whole episode on psychics.  https://www.rollingstone.com/tv/tv-news/john-oliver-psychics-last-week-tonight-799755/

I personally put people claiming to be speaking with the dead in a different class than tarot and astrology, but essentially they are the same.

I was taught growing up that consulting spiritual mediums, crystal balls, ouija boards, tarot cards, etc were all big no-nos because they were ways of letting demons or demonic influences into yourself or household. Hell, even some video games were frowned upon because of this.

They all employ the same tools to con people, but the ones that talk to the dead are on a different level, they are pure parasites.

Fortune telling and astrology can be considered entertainment if not taken seriously.  Messing with people that are grieving to take their money is evil, and putting it on TV as entertainment is also evil.

The running theme in the Rocky series (including the Creed movies) is boxers eventually becoming trainers, how long will it be before we get a prequel about when Mickey was a boxer?

You never realize how important your tongue is for chewing until you stick a piece of metal through it.
