Sorry for the slow page load! This article has gone viral. What a trip. By the way – you can read your 2011 Annual Horoscope Here. Or, check in with your Emotoscope.
Dear Friend and Reader:
I wish I could put out a press release announcing that the world is flat, and send astronomers scrambling — to return the favor for when an astronomer sends out a press release announcing that your zodiac sign is wrong. That’s what happened this week when the following went viral faster than the dude who got rich dancing around like a dork in 34 countries:
Astronomer Parke Kunkle says that due to changes in the Earth’s alignment the dates of many zodiac signs have changed, according to NBC. In addition, there may be a 13th Zodiac sign: Ophiuchus. Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs gradually change, as expected. The change didn’t happen over night either. The 12 signs were designated to different periods of the year almost 3,000 years ago, when astrology began, and since then the Earth’s position in relation to the sun has changed.
Either this is a joke or Parke Kunkle is truly ignorant of his own science. It’s probably a bit of both.

I blew 5 minutes and read the link.

Mr Astrology dude is wrong too, I heard about Ophiuchus being near the sidereal zodiac in High School science class in 1977. The sidereal zodiac was used as a coordinate system by ancient astronomers, when astrology was accepted as science.





The real question here is:

Does Yetti have a huge gold zodiac sign pendant and chain?

sorry guys just having fun with ya'll. the stupid that is astrology has been an interest of mine for years. my grandma lived by it everyday and died by it. it sure is a huge waste of time. much like reading VCR instructions in this day in age. never seems to be worth it in the end.

one thing I find funny is how many people put salt into the daily readings. its like they can't control their day to day lives so they look to the sky for an extra out of this world explanation. (most cultures call that a religion) also some view those as a waste of time...funny how that works out?

I read something the other day about the magnetic shift at the poles haveing to do with airport lines and the compass on board. Then the writer said more about how the magnetic shift could also cause problems with birds, fish and the weather.
I'll try to find that info and post more about it.
