I ordered Buddha's Delight at a low-rent dive in campustown, and this was the fortune I received:

The greatest danger could be your own stupidity.

I was blown away. A fortune cookie had just insulted me.
Ever since then, I've saved and taped them to my laptop.
Maybe they do have some idea what's going on.

You are the only flower of meditation in the wilderness.
You have a reputation for being straightforward and honest.
You will advance the careers of your friends.
Idleness is the holiday of fools.
You are original and creative.
Now is the time to try something new.
Your plans are going to succeed.
Listen not to vain words of empty tongue.
Trouble brings experience and experience brings wisdom.
What makes an apple fall to the ground?
Don't forget, you are always on our minds.
In the race to be better or best, do not miss the joy of being.
You are sociable and entertaining.
Your cheerful outlook is one of your assets.
A smile is your personal welcome mat.
You love sports, horses and gambling, but not to excess.
You are contemplative and analytical by nature.
Nothing gets in the way of your vision of yourself in the future.
You will soon be holding the lucky number.
Sometimes a stranger can bring great meaning to your life.
You are a guiding star of his existence.
You are a traveler at heart. There will be many journeys.
Look around; happiness is trying to catch you.
In love, you could shine as a brilliant star.
