::groundhog’s day can suck an egg::

let us discuss the
absolute foolishness of this ‘holiday’. i think i touched on this last
year but i will speak on regardless. as the legend goes, if the
groundhog sees his shadow, winter will end 6 weeks from today, if he
does not see his shadow, spring begins at its normal time. 6 weeks from
today is, i believe, march 16. so since the groundhog saw his shadow,
winter will end march 16th, but by the calendar, the vernal equinox
which signals the beginning of spring, is march 21. so since the
groundhog saw his shadow, we actually have less winter by 5 days.

lame.

  1. i always thought it was the same.  if he see’s his shadow six more weeks, if he doesn’t only six more weeks.  i’ll admit, i didn’t get it until i was 19 years old.
