Monday cannon fodder: Eclipse

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s an eclipse today. It’s 2017, so we don’t think this will make the world come crashing to an end or that all of a sudden gravity will reverse itself, or anything super dramatic; it’s not even an amazing scientific thing. It’s basically a celestial coincidence. It’s a really neat celestial coincidence, and I’m pretty excited to see it, but that’s mostly because I don’t have to go anywhere to see an almost total eclipse - from my office, which faces east, we’ll have a 99.3% total eclipse, and that’s good enough for me.

What about you? Are you watching the eclipse? Going out of your way to do so? Renting your space for exorbitant rates to someone who is? How much eclipse is going to be where you are?

How was your weekend otherwise? What do you want to talk about today?
