Flake Report: Mercury is in Retrograde-- it all makes sense now


The missus tells me we are in for a crappy stretch here, beginning a few days ago. An astrological site here on the web tells us (so it must be TRUE!)

At 07:18 UT (Universal Time), on Wednesday, September 24th, 2008, Mercury the cosmic trickster turns retrograde in Libra, the sign of the Scales, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! This awkward period begins a few days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until October 15, just after the Full Moon in Aries.

So basically, don't try to do anything, and reports are that this is an especially devilish Mercury retro-whatever.

"When the moon is in the seventh house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars,then peace will guide the planet and love, love will steer the stars..." Oh wait, is the Age of Aquarius already gone??

Oh, it's mercury....I always thought it was that dang "Murphy" and his law. How come he gets to write a bunch of crappy laws anyhow?

So, does mercury judge the kiln temp? Or something like that?

Hmmmmm.....ponder, ponder.

I'm a Libra. Does this mean I'm double-whammied? Blergh.

Propecia works by blocking the enzyme 5 alpha reductase. This reduces the level of hormone, DHT, in the scalp and allows hairs to revert to a normal growth cycle. This results in no further hair loss and significantly new hair growth in men with Male Pattern Hair Loss.
