When The Occult Can’t Cope

NASA may have cheered when its ‘Deep Impact’ probe crashed into the comet the other day, but one Russian astrologer didn’t. She is suing NASA for $300 million, because it ‘altered her horoscope’. (Link here from Reuters.)

It reminds me of a true story. I used to work as a civil servant in the old Department of Health and Social Security, administering people’s National Insurance contributions. One day a self-employed woman returned her papers, saying she was closing down her business due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’. Her profession? Clairvoyant.
