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.
