Catastrophes – Tiny Fear #546

Posted on March 8, 2012


There are some scientists whose sole job is not to conduct science but to create catastrophes. Yesterday one of these scientists issued a press release writing that by his calculations there was a .0000003 chance that the moon would collide with the Earth in the next few days. Kiss your loved ones on the cheek, he wrote. The werewolves have been throwing messy parties. They are excited to be so close to the moon. The rest of us are quite concerned.  This is a catastrophe, we murmur quietly.  The only exception to this are the young romantics, the men, who are eager to make it seem as though they have captured and delivered the moon to their lovers, which by their account should get them lucky.
