spells natural or man-made disaster on Earth.

That's kinda general, isn't?

Disaster! My Bus is late!

I know. It's so silly. When I read
[email protected] like this about soothsayers
claiming people will be losing
their patience because of the
proximity of mars it just makes
me want to SMASH stuff!

Maybe it really works then...

Mars makes the soothsayers speak of violence, and low and behold it happens, haha!

I can't forget that around 1962, the same kind of Southeast Asian soothsayers were aghast at US plans to got to the Moon. Descration! They foresaw hideous disasters if the project went forward.

Well, it went forward, and we got Viet Nam.

Mars is becoming more distant now. That was a close one!
