Taurus (4/20 - 5/20) Happy birthday, Taurus! Between all the end-of-semester assignments you have due and the daunting reality of finals, it might seem as if the universe is prohibiting you from celebrating your birth. And it is.

Aries (3/21 - 4/19) Happy birthday, Aries! A serious celebration is in order. (The kind where you wake up with your pants on backwards and marker phalluses stained into your forehead. And a new haircut. And the inexplicable presence of a domesticated raccoon.) In your debauchery, do not overlook the...

Q) How big of an explosion would you get from having a grain of sand going the speed of light? A) Nice! A question with some good math-y meat to it! In order to calculate this, we are going to have to make a few assumptions. We will assume that your grain of sand is about 1.57 milligrams (which seems...

Aries (3/21 - 4/19) Happy birthday, Aries! You’ve found yourself bored and unmotivated recently.

Q) If Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, and Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair, could Fuzzy Wuzzy be made fuzzy with science? A) Before we go any farther I will need to request that you always capitalize Science, lest you anger it. Well, my go-to choice for how to deal with this situation is some carpeting and glue. Assumi...

As little kids, we were always told various snippets of wisdom of what to do and not to do in order to keep ourselves safe and healthy. We believed these wise words, but only to an extent. Eventually, we reached the point where we would much rather try things out for ourselves instead of listening t...

Pisces (2/19 - 3/20) Happy birthday, Pisces! You did very little to rest up over the break. If you’re looking for ways to increase your energy, try training yourself to run on 3 hours of sleep in a given 24-hour period. Sleep from 5-8 every morning, wake up and drop some adrenochrome. You’ll be...

Q) I know a lot of employment positions are being replaced by robots. But I’m a student. Do you think students will ever be replaced by robots? Fantasize (nightmarishly, if we share the same outlook) about it. A) I’m not sure if they wanted to know if students will be replaced or people who study...

Pisces (2/19 - 3/20) Happy birthday, Pisces! As the weather warms, you might catch yourself beginning to have more energy. Your comrades might not be able to keep up with your eagerness, but that shouldn’t deter you from exhibiting it as often as possible. It might be time to purchase a mini-trampoline ...
