FML's Question Time #4: Horoscopes, science or witchcraft?
It's time once again to get argumentative. Here's belated new attempt at giving you folks a chance to give your opinion on something we pulled out of a hat. Subjects will come and go, but we'll never discuss anything too serious, like diseases or how the hell people still go to Nickelback shows. We want to hear what you have to say about the chosen topic, since it's something everyone seems to have an opinion on.
To sum up the idea behind this column: we ask you a question every month or so, and all you'll have to do is give your opinion, back it up with facts, stories or something you overheard while getting your private parts waxed in a beauty salon run by a guy in a raincoat. What we are looking for are debates, exchanges and comments. There are no limits, feel free to express yourselves and get stuck in.
This month's QOTM:
Can the stars and planets actually influence our life?
Or are some of us simply gullible nitwits?
To get the ball rolling, we've asked a few people to speak their brains.
"The only astral body I'm interested in is the Death Star. It's down the mechanics' having its tires rotated at the moment, but it's still my number one star." - Darth Vador
"Did you really just ask me that? Astrology and horoscopes are so intensely bad, it's like, dude, hello, why would balls of gas in the sky have an influence on my love live. People are nuts. Did I tell you about the time I went to an ashram and learned how to read tea leaves? Now THAT'S proper science. Got any cheese?" - my neighbour, the sociology student
"The stars don't influence me. I influence me. The stars all want me to make them a mixtape." - Kanye West
You get the general idea. Tell us how the stars that may or not be influencing us are influencing you. Have you ever believed? Do you still believe? Is the truth out there? You've seen horoscopes, maybe someone did your star chart and you were amazed how accurate it was. Give us your views, your stories, get a debate going. There's no limits on comments, so let loose. The best story will be voted by the amount of thumbs up it gets. It won't win anything. Or will it? Anyway, tell us everything, we want to hear about your life. This is FML after all.
Come on, procrastinate. Work can wait til Monday.
