I don't believe in astrology. I am a Gemini and we're very skeptical.
Quote:My favourite, although very sad, story of the last appearance of Halley's was that of an elderly lady who was interviewed on her memories of the previous appearance in 1910. It went something like this; "Dad gathered all us kids together to go and see the mighty comet in the middle of the night. We bundled up and he took us to a nearby park where we had a clear view of the sky. Not sure where to look, we all looked at a different area of the sky. Suddenly my sister saw it and we all marveled as it streaked across the sky. It was a night I will never forget"I was pleased that the reporter chose not to tell the old lady what she actually saw, or more likely, had no idea herself!
Remember, if the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
I don't know how old I was when I was one.
