These are some wonderful answers and some disturbing ones as well. However, you have to remember that the yes/no format is very specific. For instance, you asked are we heading for world war three. Yes, is the answer, but the way you phrased the question limits the energy from giving you a truly accurate answer. Are we heading, does not mean there will be a world war three, and the second question "Will it happen in five years?" is specifically running from your perspective of what you believe a world war three to be.
Since you asked the pendulum (which is in reality the cosmic energy that oracles tap into like the Sybils) a question based from a particular answer and perspective based on the original answer, it can easily mislead you from a more accurate response.
Augury is a not a clear cut science, but it is a science of analyzing current trends to foresee future ones. Weather forecasting is predicting the future, sure with better tools you get a clearer picture, but in the weather business they say that flipping a coin is just as accurate as a long term forecast and is considerably cheaper. Really!
A pendulum is an ancient tool that gives black and white answers. Many times that will suffice, but will not afford the same accuracy and answers that tea readings, rune casting, or even chicken entrails can produce. An old man's trick knee can indeed predict a storm, his joints are simply responding to atmospheric changes in pressure and temperature allowing him a fairly accurate insight to when a "Big one" is going to hit.
The more complicated the tool, the deeper the insight (tarot for instance), but can also leave you mired in a jumble of images and information that takes away from the clear cut answers that a pendulum can provide (but a pendulum cannot give more than a yes or no answer). If you take what you received as solid fact, you are missing the point of the process.
Modify your questions even slightly and you may just get an entirely different answer (like maybe, or yes\no if the pendulum remains stationary) and can enrich your divination experience. More advanced techniques will illustrate my point far more clearly. It is a science, and through observation, formulating hypothesis', continuing the observations, while modifying your techniques as you go, you will be amazed at what you can discover.
What is world war three to you? That conjures up many images, and yes or no, cannot possibly answer the questions as accurately as you would hope. Ask in terms of what is needed and what is best, and the answers will flow far better than you can imagine.
Do not take much stock in what you were told, try again, and again, and again. Then the potential of future events will reveal themselves. You have to trust, and keep an open mind.
This is not as accurate as one would think. Simple yes/no questions are not the answer. Just a possibility.
Can humans fly = no response OR MAYBE, OR YES and NO, OR please ask again, etc.
This is misleading. I hope that someone read my previous post. Here is my augury. A U shaped piece of ceramic is tossed on my desk, if it lands in The U position the OP's readings are inaccurate, if it lands in an n shape then the readings are accurate, if it lands in a ( shape then they are mostly accurate and if it lands in a ) shape then it is mostly inaccurate.
First question: Are her readings accurate? n = Accurate
Second question: Is she accurately interpreting her readings ) = Mostly Inaccurate, with a slight leaning towards Accurate.
I won't bother you people again. It is good to have some faith in this though. P.S. I just made another reading and most people on this thread aren't even going to read what I have posted. Crap!

I think its a case of wanting to believe so things so much, that anything logical or anything that challenges the pendulums results will be looked down upon.

not to mention, i have never and would never charge a person for answering questions on the pendulum. that is ludicrous. it was a skill taught to me from my mother.
do not criticize something you do not understand. do you know if anything in reality is the way you see it? do you not think that some magic is real? get off your "scientific" pedastool of whats possible and whats not possible. you do not know. nor does anyone. so do not pretend that you do
