I improvised with a D list celebrity who is famous for a TV show that practically no fucking person gives a shit about anymore, who had no improv experience, who did the show in a t shirt that had GAPING HOLES IN THE ARMPITS despite being richer (at least at some point in the 80s) than I will ever hope to be.

Thank god that woman was one of the 3 fans on Earth he still actually has.

In ancient China, astronomical traditions can be traced back to the middle Shang Dynasty (ca. 13th century BCE), where oracle bones unearthed at Anyang were inscribed with the names of star. The parallels between these and earlier Sumerian star catalogs suggest they did no arise independently.
Due to factors like the gravitational pull of the sun and moon, the speed at which the Earth rotates constantly changes. Accordingly, the length of a day actually varies from year to year. The difference is only in the order of milliseconds. At about the same time, however, the madness generated by the ill informed and economically illiterate noisemakers began to quiet. “Phew,” the business establishment seemed to say, “Glad that’s over with.” But a closer look reveals that nothing was really over with, and that, in fact, the reverse had happened.
