We have never before seen or heard of a constellation of omens such as we’re confronted with now. To begin with, this is Friday the 13th. We don’t need to elaborate on that!
In addition, this is also the time of a full Moon. You can read about it at NASA: December 2019: The Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon. They say:
The Moon will be full just after midnight on Thursday morning, Dec. 12, 2019, appearing “opposite” the Sun (in Earth based longitude) at 12:12 AM EST. The Moon will appear full for about three days centered on this time, from Tuesday evening through Friday morning.
The Moon is indeed full this morning. Your Curmudgeon went outside and looked for it. Yes, it’s true!
And that’s not all! Besides having a full Moon fall on Friday the 13th — which is bad enough! — there’s also something else. It’s of special significance to your Curmudgeon and his legion of fans. This — the very post you’re now reading — is post number 8,000 for our humble blog. Think about it. What are the odds against a post number like that falling on Friday the 13th during a full Moon? It’s overwhelming!
Your Curmudgeon is prepared. We’re ready for the Cosmic Aardvark to carry us on his back and fly us to the firmament. There’s nothing left to be done except to declare what may be our final Intellectual Free-Fire Zone.
You know the rules. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters. The comments are open, dear reader. Have at it!
Oh, wait! Because this is a doomsday post, we adhere to tradition and close with this:
