The point of going to a palm reader is so they can read the unique patterns given to you by the stars. Or the gods. Or the star gods. Whatever. I'm not sure you're supposed to try to BEAT THE SYSTEM.
But that's exactly what people are doing in Japan. Apparently there's a new plastic surgery trend there where people get NEW LINES etched into their palms . . . so that they'll get better fortunes.
In palm reading, the lengths of different lines mean different things. So, let's say you really want to get married but your marriage line is short. Just have a plastic surgeon etch you a longer one.
The Shonan Beauty Clinic in Shinjuku, Japan says they've performed 37 palm line surgeries in the past few years. The surgery uses an electric scalpel, takes about 10 to 15 minutes . . . and costs around $1,000.
There's no word on whether any American plastic surgeons are performing palm line surgeries.
