In the 1988 movie “Big” Actor Tom Hanks plays a twelve-year-old boy who wishes to be big. He makes his rather generalized wish with a Zoltar Speaks arcade game that claims to grant wishes. Its claims were true and it chose to interpret the child’s wish to be big by making him a 35-year-old adult! After living as an adult for a month he realizes how much he misses being a kid. He finds the Zoltar machine at a new location and wishes to be twelve again. Both times the wishing machine was unplugged. Perhaps an explanation why every user of the machine doesn’t get their wish granted. He also aggressively banged on the thing to get it to work indicating how badly he wanted the wish. The wishing machine in Big was based on real Zoltar Fortune Telling machines that spit forth general words of wisdom and advice.🔮
Are There Real Magical Machines That Predict Real Fortunes?
Fortune Telling is the gift of talented psychics, seers, mystics, some practitioners of magic and various supernatural beings. A machine, no matter how intricately constructed, simply couldn’t do such a thing. However, in the distant future sentient artificially intelligence supercomputers may have mental power great enough to make predictions with great accuracy. This via complicated formulas of mathematical probability and past calculations of various patterns. That being said, there are some real fortune telling machines scattered across the world. They may be products of witches, warlocks, wizards, or sorcerers. In some cases, the machine may be cursed to tell the future for the purposes of negative mental manipulation. The device could also be possessed by the ghost of a fortune teller or a demonic entity.👿
More Often Than Not Fortune Telling Machines Mean To Mess With You!
Most of the time these mechanical predictors of the future were created to torment humans in some way. A maniacal method to perpetuate perplexing evil once a dark soul has passed on to the great beyond! It’s not very common for these machines to be designed for the purpose of continuing one’s legacy of good grace in helping people find their destinies or avoid the dangers of life. It’s said a handful of these machines are in the possession of billionaires or locked away in private or government research facilities. The only verified location of a genuine fortune telling machine is at the McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences in Scotland. It was confiscated from a dark wizards lair and made safe by the Headmaster Sorcerer Ian McTavish.
Are Wish Granting Machines Real?
The grant of wishes is far rarer than the telling of fortunes. Wishes can only be granted by a limited number of beings including higher dimensional beings. Those such as demons often require a soul in exchange for the wish. We also have the notoriously tricky Jinn who only grant their three wishes when trapped in bottles and lamps as Genies. We also have Leprechauns who only reluctantly grants wishes when you hold them or their gold hostage. Most magical practitioners can’t grant wishes outright but they can use their powers to make some dreams come true. With all this being said there are secret supernatural records showing the unique existence of wishing machines. The ones we know of involve the three beings mentioned above in conjunction with some purveyor of magic, curse or other metaphysical circumstance.
The Devil’s Curse
Amazingly, there is a blatantly evil looking machine that’s called “The Devil’s Curse”. Its location is currently unknown because it self-teleports randomly around the planet. The Devil was fascinated with the Industrial Revolution of the early 19th century. While briefly on Earth during that time he took his turn at creating a diabolical device! It’s said he utilized dark witches and a piece of his demonic spirit to finalize the wishing powers of the malevolent machine. A bust of a quintessential horned Devil rests in the machine as a sarcastic nod at how people picture him. The demonic figure asks the user to either sell their soul or accept the Devil’s Curse in order to have a wish granted. If they choose to sell their soul then the real Devil or one of his demonic representatives appears. Soul-selling can only occur in person with a written contract signed in blood! If they chose the vaguely described Curse then they must stick their hand in a door for a blood sacrifice. A sharp pin pierces the skin to extract blood for a minute. The wish is granted and the curse ends up being that everyone they know dies within a year!😈
The Dark Leprechauns Revenge
Nearly 1000 years ago a Leprechaun named Siobhan was framed by a Clurichaun, aka dark demonic Leprechaun, as a traitor and thief. He suffered the injustice of being stripped of his pot of gold. However, he threw himself off a cliff before being banished to the Underworld. Had he accepted his punishment he would have later been exonerated and released back to full Leprechaun status! A Leprechauns spirit is tied to his gold so he in essence haunted or possessed his own gold after his death. As the gold was seen to be tainted and full of dark luck it was thrown off the same cliff into the deep canyon below. A psychic wicked witch found the gold centuries later. She sensed the Leprechauns presence but he was so embedded in his gold that she couldn’t get any wishes out of him. She had a talented watchmaker in her magical debt and he agreed to construct a wishing machine imbued with her magical spells. Half the gold was melted and molded into the device. Upon said gold, the sinister spells were hand engraved. The rest of the gold coins were kept in the machine as apart of the wishing process.🧙♀️
The witch created a large ventriloquist like doll in the shape of a leprechaun. It sits behind the glass in the machine. It allows the Leprechaun to finally interact and communicate on a limited basis with our world. Although his soul is imprisoned in the machine. He is forced to give wishes or the witches spells metaphysically torture him! The operator of the device makes a wish and then one of the Leprechauns gold coins flows into his mouth. This ends his suffering for a time. Leprechaun wishes are based on Luck but in this case, it is, in essence, a Clurichauns wish based on bad luck. The user will get their wish but a boatload of chaotic tragedy will be required for it to come true!
The wicked witch knew how to utilize the machine without it biting her in the rear. There’s also the fact that she could have cared less if anyone suffered as a result of her wishes. However, the Leprechaun got his revenge some years later when she made a mistake in wording her wish and she ended up falling prey to a Witch Slayer! The current whereabouts of The Leprechauns Revenge are unknown. Yes, the machines signage actually says that! Despite this, it’s made out to be a joke when it’s deadly serious! The Leprechaun doesn’t necessarily have a grudge against humans but he relishes in spreading bad luck in defiance of the Leprechaun mission of favorable fortune.🍀
The Genuine Genie
It was only 11 years ago when a Jinn Hunter was faced with a violent Djinn and he had no magical lamp or bottle to trap them in. Thankfully, he was in possession of a large box that was magically spelled to be supernaturally sealed. He was relatively sure it would trap the Djinn long enough for him to acquire a proper lamp or bottle from supernatural black market dealers in Iraq. He caught the higher dimensional abomination but inadvertently had his soul ripped from his body! It happened so violently that his body died. The Djinn was now a Genie permanently held in the box by the power of the Jinn Hunters soul intertwined with the spelled box and the Genie itself. It became the first and only Genie’s Box!
The box was found by paranormal relic hunters but couldn’t be opened due to the sealing spell. Eventually, it was sold to a sadistic millionaire collector who utilized a hired Sorcerer to open it and gain three wishes. It’s said the millionaire’s final wish lead to him entering a higher plane of existence. He instructed the Sorcerer to install the box in a vending machine he had an inventor design. The millionaire had the advice of the Sorcerer and a special Genie wish wording book to ensure the wishes didn’t backfire on him. Genies are notorious for twisting wishes as they resent being trapped. The millionaire knew the average person would probably be screwed if they tried to make the same wishes. This brought him great joy as he hated people who he looked at as only means to his selfish ends!
The Genuine Genie machine was then released into the world. A person puts a coin in and a mechanism opens the box hidden in the machine. The sensual looking female Genie appears in a wisp of pink smoke coming out of a fake Genie bottle inside the glass display case. It’s explained away as an advanced hologram. The operator is then asked to make three wishes that will surely bring them great regret! Due to the unique nature of this Genie box it can’t keep making wishes if a line of people kept activating it. It needs about 3 years to metaphysically recharge. The current location of the Genuine Genie is unknown. We do know that the machine is owned by the nefariously mysterious Bortinox Corporation. Agents of this company continually move the machine about the planet.🧞♀️
