In the 2000 film Cast Away, Tom Hanks plays an American FedEx executive stranded alone on a remote Pacific island after he survives a plane crash. A few items from the plane wash up on shore, including a volleyball. He draws a face on it and names it “Wilson,” creating a companion who becomes his confidant for the next four years. Enlist an ally like Wilson next week.

If you live in Gaza, you don’t have easy access to Kentucky Fried Chicken. The closest KFC is 35 miles away in Egypt. But there was a time when you could pay smugglers to bring it to you via underground tunnel. Each delivery took four hours and required the help of two taxis, a handcart and a motorbike.
ARIES: August 20-27 Wednesday, August 27
Don’t just be smart and articulate. Dare to be wildly wise and prone to unruly observations. Don’t merely be kind and well-behaved. Explore mysteries of healing through benevolent mischief. Don’t buy into the all-too-serious trances. Break up the monotony with unpredictable play and funny curiosity. Don’t go along with the stories everyone seems to believe as if they were the Truth and the Way.
CANCER: August 20-27 Wednesday, August 27
You wouldn’t sip dirty water from a golden chalice, right? Nor would you swig delicious poison from a fine crystal wine glass or 10-year-old vinegar from a queen’s goblet.

Someone on Reddit.com asked, “What have you always been curious to try?” Many replied that they wanted to experiment with exotic varieties of sex and drugs they’d never tried. Other favorites: eating chocolate-covered bacon, piloting a plane, shoplifting, doing a stand-up comedy routine, hang-gliding and deep-sea diving, exploring the Darknet and the Deep Web, spontaneously taking a trip to a foreign country, turning away from modern society and joining a Buddhist monastery.

In August, a Bradenton, Florida, deputy sheriff was forced to duplicate a classic scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark when he was advanced upon by a menacing-looking, samurai-sword-swinging, 31-year-old man. The deputy, perhaps as nonplussed as Indiana Jones was, shot him dead.
RULE NO. 9 Wednesday, September 24
The 15-year-old granddaughter of Cliven Bundy (the Nevada rancher whose dispute with the federal government caused a notorious standoff in March) told Las Vegas’ KSNV-TV that her dad (Bundy’s son) was withdrawing her from her high school because officials would not allow her to carry a knife on campus. She said her dad has taught his kids (just like Leroy Jethro Gibbs on NCIS) to “always” carry a knife.

The driest place on Earth is the Atacama Desert in northern Chile. It gets about a half-inch of rain a year. Yet in 2011, archaeologists discovered it’s home to a site containing fossilized skeletons of several whales and other ancient sea creatures.
TAURUS: October 22-28 Wednesday, October 22
Businessman Warren Buffet is worth $65.5 billion, but regularly gives away 27 percent of his fortune to charity. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates owns $78 billion, and donates 36 percent. Then there’s the Walton family, owners of Walmart, where 100 million Americans shop weekly.
GEMINI: October 22-28 Wednesday, October 22
You have two options. Be in denial about your real feelings, ignore what needs to be fixed and wait for trouble to find you. Or vow to be resilient, summon your feistiest curiosity and search for trouble. The difference between these two is dramatic. If you mope, sigh and hide, the messy trouble that arrives will be indigestible. But if you’re brave and proactive, the interesting trouble ultimately evolves into a blessing.
