Your Future, Sort Of

Some nerdy humor for you (explained in the postscript for non-nerds):

My co-worker E came up with this funny idea – a fortune cookie that gives you the MD5 hash of your future. Here's an example: “In two days, you will find out that 12724EEFC1DA5C429140514BAD9659FF”. Useless, but it's nice to know that somebody knows…


p.s. The point of a hash is that the hash is unique and irreversible. So a different hash means a different fortune, but there's no way to get the fortune out of the hash. There – I explained the joke. Now it's not funny anymore. Are you happy?
