Last month Jupiter & Saturn had a once-in-400yr conjunction

Agent Cooper foretold this….

“Historically…when Jupiter & Saturn are conjunct, there are enormous shifts in power & fortune…a potential for explosive change: good & bad…due January to June”

Evidence you might be in a Cult:

Your group has one leader - usually male. You revere this leader, and do what he tells you. Your group has the answers while nobody else does. And you actively deny that your group is a Cult.

Evidence you might be in a Cult::

When you stop thinking for yourself and you’ve empowered a select few others in your group to do your thinking for you.

One of the fastest ways to learn whether your group is a Cult is to ask a friend who is not in the group.

Posted this five years ago. But from what has transpired in America recently, it’s clear that not enough people paid attention. So I’ll try again…

A meditation on Political vs. Personal vs. Objective Truths

Well, it’s about time. This should have happened 150 years ago.

Science in the USA will become a Cabinet Level post.

Seems to me, if you can get the citizens of a Democracy to no longer agree on what is objectively true in the world, then you have conquered them with all the strength of an invading army.

Imagine a world where Nations find the search for life in the Universe more interesting than the taking of life on Earth.

Hmm. Looks like @TheOnion’s investigative reporters might have figured it out:

My annual post of the 10-minute beat poem “Storm” by @TimMinchin.

A raw dose of sanity in a world that occasionally loses sight of the universe.

Merry Perihelion to all residents of planet Earth.

The day when Earth, in its oval orbit, is closer to the Sun than on any other day of the year.

If interested…

Hold all calls...

It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m in the middle of @SYFY channel's annual Twilight Zone Marathon.

See you on the other side, because 2020 was surely a twilight zone unto itself.

Quoted @neiltyson

I know I’m a bit delayed on this, but why does Aquaman’s “Tri”dent have five tines?

Okay. The verdict is in.

Aquaman’s pitchfork in this image is officially a Quindent (from the Latin “Quint" rather than the Greek “Penta”).

But for me, it just has “many” tines. So I’m going with Polydent.

Maybe Santa’s Reindeer are stationary, and it is we who fly past them on Christmas Eve.

Quoted @TheDude_Abided

@neiltyson Most of the reindeer used to pull sleds are castrated males which make them easier to handle, and have antler cycles similar to those of the females.....

Nice bit of info. Thanks.

But now you force us all to imagine Santa castrating Rudolph.

Santa doesn’t know Zoology:

Both male & female Reindeer grow antlers. But all male Reindeer lose their antlers in the late fall, well-before Christmas.

So Santa’s reindeer, which all sport antlers, are therefore all female, which means Rudolf has been misgendered.

Santa Knows Physics: Of all colors, Red light penetrates fog best. That's why Benny the Blue-nosed reindeer never got the gig.
