Wish Paper

Kind of clever, and doesn’t require carving a chicken.

“The quantum unpredictability of tearing paper lets you make wishes by completely natural chance. This paper pad has 100 sheets of invisibly fibrous paper with an exact starting point for tearing. In the end, the bigger piece of paper gives a perfectly impartial decision. They can be used for all kinds of decision-making, more specifically in deciding whose wish gets granted. They can all be used by one or two persons. Of course, they can also be used for writing notes to yourself or others.”
