New Year’s Oracle is a fun way to ring in 2014 according to ancient Roman tradition. Pour molten lead (virtually) into cold water and try and interpret the form as a hint into the future. Their in-built guide will help figure out what the symbols means — a wave-like shape could mean travels and books could mean more studying. Details: oracle.christoph-just.de
