All alone in the night

Bad day. Two unscheduled meetings, one scheduled, but failed meeting, far too much email, far too much confusion, lost laptop, and to top it all off, an unnecessary ride back home to check whether I left the iron on.

The trams and stars don't care. They just travel on their paths, unaware of the problems of the insignificant little creatures that happen to be traveling along.

So are you talking about astronomy vs. astrology? Or more of a metaphysical one-ness that says we are insignificant in time and space? Or were you talking about the paradox between the ordered and predictable motion of the universe containing stars and planets vs. the unpredictable and sometimes very erratic tram system?

For your English only visitors :-) , this link about Astrology as a Science will take you where the Google link was headed....

No, sporalogy is a very well defined branch of astrology. It gives very accurate predictions on your life, based on the relative positions of the Helsinki trams at the time of your birth.

It is better than astrology, because the gravitational pull exerted by the trams is greater than of the planets, so they actually do have more relevance to your life than the stars. You can calculate it yourself pretty easily =).

Actually, sporalogy is a pretty good joke invented by Nils Mustelin, a well-known Finnish astronomer and philosopher. He is a good enough writer to make a "sporalogy horoscope" that sounds completely convincing, and which people swear is accurate.
