Okay, that said…really? I mean, really?
In this case, I like what Sanal Edamaruku, president of the Indian Rationalist Association, has to say:
“Primarily, what we see with all these soothsayers and astrologers is that they’re looking for opportunities to enhance their business with predictions of danger and calamity,” he told AFP.
Ain’t that the truth.
So, if you get an earful from some coworker, friend or family member freaking out about this week’s eclipse, saying that WWIII is about to take off, please tell them to grab their club, reclip their loin cloth and go back to the cave. Or don’t. Sometimes it’s just fun to watch people flip the fuck out for no good reason. While eclipses can and do affect people in the astrological sense, please turn down the Carmen Burana, have some chamomile tea and take a nice walk instead.
