Very Scary

Jay Manifold's comment on this post:

A few years back, when I lived in Dallas, the director of the planetarium at Fair Park told a Texas Astronomical Society meeting that when the planetarium announced that telescopes would be available for public viewing of the Tue 10 Jun 94 annular solar eclipse, they got calls from people asking why they hadn't scheduled it on a weekend, when more people could drive down to see it.

These calls were from teachers. me to thinking.

His power grows.

How did Glenn manage to schedule the opposition of Mars with his birthday? He moved an entire planet just so he could take the day off from blogging?

Be very afraid.

Apparently he learned the trick from that evil genius, Ray Bradbury.

Allow me to pass along a correction (which I think I added in the original comment thread): it was Tue 10 May 94. Lest someone think that I'm, I dunno, a teacher or something. ;)

You want birthday power? Nixon was elected and Clinton reelected on my birthday. Watch out for 2024. Bwahahahaha!

I read this post just before I left for our Mars to-do last night. Imagine my chuckles when I overheard one of the museum's docents complaining about the stupid phonecalls they'd been receiving all day. The chief complaint from callers was "Why couldn't you schedule the event earlier in the day? It is a school night, you know."
