So I’m Not Saying That It’s Impossible, Just That It’ll Be When Cars Fly

June 21, 2017

Today I read someone predicting that in 30 years humans will only work 4 hours a day, 4 days a week.

So it’s a new year, 2015, and the start of a new year is a traditional time for resolutions and predictions.¬† Normally I don’t give more than polite acknowledgement to the resolutions, and prudent acknowledgment to the predictions, but this year one “astrological¬† prediction” stood out to me as worthy of note:

Yeah, yeah, I get it, and aren’t you clever?¬† I’m not exactly a fan of astrology myself (but I’m a Taurus, and we don’t tend to believe in that sort of thing), but did you really think this one through?¬† For instance, are you sure that nobody is going to be affected even a little bit by the day/night cycle or the seasons throughout 2015?

Because that would be important to know in advance.
