    Or ... maybe not. Nonetheless, from Reuters:

    In a centuries-old ritual, a pair of oxen plowed a symbolic furrow outside Phnom Penh's gilded Royal Palace and were then offered a choice of seven dishes -- rice, corn, beans, sesame, water, wine and grass.

    Royal astrologer Soeung Kimleang proclaimed the oxen consumed 90 percent of the rice, and 95 percent of the corn and beans, and steered cleared of the water, signifying a plentiful harvest.

    But some farmers who had traveled to the capital to witness the ceremony had their doubts.

    "I saw the oxen drinking the water. That means maybe there will be a lack of rain," said farmer Ly Sophat, 41, from northwest province of Pursat. "I only believe about half of what they are predicting."
    Why not just move to where there's a grocery store? Oh. Right. My bad.

    Wow, I wonder if they’re hiring. I could be a great royal astrologer. And on my last day, I’d poison the water.
