>The 13th Zodiac: oFUCKus

15 Jan


And I quote:

As for Ophiuchus. This is an old hoax. Historically, Ophiuchus has never been listed as a constellation in the sidereal zodiac. 

The origin of the hoax is a sci-fi author named John Sladek — a satire writer who died in 2000. Sladek liked to prank astrology, and he has a whole novel about a fictitious 13th sign based on Ophiuchus he called Arachne that was “suppressed by the scientific community.” The Ophiuchus hoax first made its rounds in the late 1990s and pops up again like those emails from the guy in Nigeria who wants you to send him your bank account number so he can transfer $15 million your way.


It’s amazing what the media will pick up nowadays and run like mad with it ’til it spreads like wildfire and call it news, isn’t it???

    >I still got a kick out of freaking out my sister and throwing her quote in her face. "Jewels, I can get Sagittarius tattooed on me because that's never going to change" hahahaha. I called her and was like guess what Nikki–that shit changed. She freaked out. LMAO. Granted she was 16 when she got it and has 15 others now but she was frantically trying to draw up cover ups! lmao. Damn that was a good time….till I had to tell her it was okay.

    >haha. i had to admit it was pretty entertaining, though, to see so many people on facebook freaking out about the zodiac just hours after freaking out about the "new facebook". ^_^

    >I am an astrologer, and I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see there are people smart enough to call this bullshit Bullshit. Some ASTRONOMER (most of whom spend half their lives trying to debunk astrology) shoots off his mouth and the media runs with it … as usual not bothering to check their facts with ANYBODY that might actually KNOW something about the subject.I suppose I ought to come out of my cave and post a rant 😉 but yeah, these people have been getting to me. Good to see you Rabbit, I'm alive and I'll be back when I get my head back on straight.
