Cosmetic Surgery: Get the Lines on Your Palm Altered to Change Your Destiny

The palmist says that you're fated to have bad luck. But don't worry! Science is here to save the day:

It’s a simple idea: change your palm, change the reading, and change your future. All you need is a competent plastic surgeon with an electric scalpel who has a basic knowledge of palmistry. Or you can draw the lines on your hand with a marker and let him work the magic you want.

This surgery is increasingly popular in Japan. Dr. Takaaki Matsuoka is a cosmetic surgeon who performs it:

It was January 2011, and a female patient wanted her palm reformatted to bring her better luck. Matsuoka wasn’t sure he could do it.

He scoured medical journals until he found examples of such surgery being done in Korea, studied the methods, then confirmed with the patient what she wanted done, and performed the surgery for ¥100,00 ($1,000). It went well.

The surgery had to be performed with an electric scalpel—which burns the flesh, creating the scent of burnt hot dogs, and leaves a semipermanent scar.

“If you try to create a palm line with a laser, it heals, and it won’t leave a clear mark. You have to use the electric scalpel and make a shaky incision on purpose, because palm lines are never completely straight. If you don’t burn the skin and just use a plain scalpel, the lines don’t form. It’s not a difficult surgery, but it has to be done right.”

This sounds so ridiculous. I don't know why anyone would like to change their palm lines. They don't really indicate whether you can be rich or not. Cosmetic surgery can be just like magic and give you the palm lines that you want, but in reality, you need to earn work hard to achieve anything in life. Palm reading won't help you be successful.
