Last month I wrote that National Geographic was considering putting Saturn on its cover. The problem was, they were mulling over two other far less interesting and far less important issues: the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker (a bird? Compared to an entire planet? Woodpeckers don't even have rings), and some tiny country in Europe or Asia or someplace. I forget which one.
Clearly, NatGeo has made the wise and inevitable choice to put Saturn on its cover.
Taking a page from creationists, astrologers, Hoagland, and others, I will baldly claim despite the lack of evidence -- indeed, flying in the face of what evidence there actually is -- that is is solely due to the juggernaut that is the power wielded by this mighty blog.
Let this be a lesson to those who stand before this blog: it will crush you.
