It Appears That We Have Apparently Not Learned Our Lesson

Human hubris, so it is said, knows no bounds. Barely three weeks after our planet was treated to a cosmic "warning shot" courtesy of asteroid 2005 YU55, we are continuing in our quest to antagonize our solar systemal neighbors.

The Mars Science Laboratory, nicknamed "Curiosity" by NASA managers, launched this morning on its journey to the red planet. The boring, lifeless red rocks found by the Viking landers and the Pathfinder rover and the Spirit and Opportunity rovers were not sufficient to satisfy astronomers' Barsoomian curiosity about the boring lifeless planet, so we just had to send one more probe just to be sure.

Math and Black Friday: A Recipe for Corruption

Just when you thought it was safe to start the holiday season.

It's not bad enough that our sacred Christian traditions of consumerism and overconsumption are under attack every year from the atheist/other-religionist cabal in their annual War On Christmas. It now appears that the sacred Christian tradition of shopping on Black Friday is under attack by an even more insidious enemy: numbers.

The global arithmetic conspiracy is now trying to weasel their way in to the festivities by insisting that shoppers use math to inform their Black Friday purchases. They even recommend several "smart-phone" "applications" to help with the comparisoning.

This is an outrage! It isn't bad enough that retailers are engaging in the anti-capitalist practice of sales and discounts on Black Friday - the most insidious form of socialism known to man. Now the numberico-technological conspiracy is conscripting consumers as the foot-soldiers in the war on capitalism/Christmas by encouraging them to comparison-shop.

With the numbers invading our shopping traditions like this, it should come as no surprise that young women are attacking Xbox shoppers with pepper spray and that old men are stealing video game cartridges. The numbers are driving us to madness!

Jupiter Fires a Warning Shot At Us

As you may have heard from the various media reports today, our planet was buzzed by a city-block sized asteroid today. The Earth-threatening asteroid 2005 YU55 passed a mere 201,000 miles from our planet, traveling at a mind-boggling 29,000 miles per hour. Were a rock this size to impact our planet, it would undoubtedly unleash a wave of destruction of Michael Bay special effect proportions.

While the global astronomical elites are happily patting themselves on their collective backs for "discovering" this asteroid far in advance of its close encounter with our planetary home, they are missing the big picture of the story.

It is obviously obvious that this asteroidal close call was nothing less than a warning shot by one of our solar system's gas giants. No doubt in retaliation for the various space-probes and robotical explorers we continue to use to annoy and antagonize them. The fact that 2005 YU55 did not strike us is no doubt due to skillful negotiation by the astrologers.

Thank you, astrologers, for once again saving us from hubris!
