Episode 8 – “Attack of the Gerrymanders”

 Episode 8 – “Attack of the Gerrymanders”

American history is on the minds of Dave and Jeff. Also of note: Dungeons & Dragons, the out-of-date zodiac, the gun store of Mexico, and a dog who wore sunglasses. So settle in with a fresh O’Doul’s and prepare yourself to learn about Admiral George Cockburn, The Pig War, and the true meaning of the word Gerrymander.

Constellations don’t predict the future. PLANETS do. Duh.

As we know, the calendar of zodiac signs is out of date (by 2500 years) as the relative orientation of the Earth to the stars and the sun shifts. This has become a buzzing topic on Twitter, and many are wondering if they can still trust their astrologers.

Of course they can.

The popular astrologer Susan Miller called the news “ridiculous.” In an interview with ABC News, she said, “We’ve known about this for ages. The constellations don’t suggest what’s coming up, it’s the planets! The constellations are a measuring device.”

So relax. While the constellations make for a useful naming convention, it’s really only the planets that determine if you and your new boyfriend are a love match.

You can always rely on the planets. Except for Pluto.
