Taurus:Ever wonder how much time is spent worrying about the weather? I looked, I was hoping to fish, other day, and the long–range weather–forecaster thing said “Rain.” I worried. Needlessly, as the long–range weather–forecaster thing was wrong, that far in advance. Nice day, sure there are pictures on a website — someplace — fun on the water. I have two reasonably accurate weather predictors. Three, if one counts the local news weather guy who is Pisces. My two that are far more accurate? There’s an app on my phone, a single window pane that gives me the current temp., accurate to a few degrees, right outside my door, doesn’t matter where I am on the planet. The other? I walk outside that door, look at the sky, feel the air, determine, hot/cold, moist/damp, dry/dryer, calm/windy. While I can’t take the barometric pressure myself, I can guess at it. I’ve found this to be a more accurate weather predictor than any of the apps, local news, anything else. Empirical —Taurus— observation yields the best results. Most accurate. No way to judge that situation, the weather, for example until you step outside. Just better that way. This week’s buzzword? “Empirical.”
Not all of my ideas are original. I’ve lifted, adapted, stolen, everything but outright plagiarized material from whatever sources. I’ve used tawdry romance to high-brow literature as sources for inspiration and ideas. While the idea itself might not be original, the way I use it?
