That loser you shun in the present may wind up owning his own yacht in the future. Better listen to Zoltar, the prognosticating genie who commands short-sighted highschoolers to stay in touch with everyone they know (even those they wish they didn't know) using Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger. Doubters can gaze into the crystal ball by submitting a friend's name to a website created by AKQA—once Zoltar reveals that friend's future fortunes, visitors can downloading the IM service to insure their future moocher status, or watch as Zoltar admonishes other dumbass teens in a series of animated web films created by Hornet.
