How Did I Get Here [to This Weird Astrology Site]?

Do you ever find yourself somewhere strange on the internet, and you can't remember what led you there until hours later you circle back to an article you'd opened what seems like days ago, and rereading the sentence you left off at makes the pieces fall sadly back together? Or: It's amazing how quickly I can read "She was Scorpio skinny; I’m Cancerian round" and Google "astrology physical traits" to be wading through sites like this, this, this, and, this, which all feel a little like the lost souls in Ursula's cave. And I couldn't find anything good anyway.

It's always interesting to me how, to the uninitiated, the language of wacky stuff like that is comparable to jargony science: "In the present CAD population, no differences in circulating levels of fractalkine or expression levels of CX3CR1 were observed between patients with and without T2DM, or with and without metabolic syndrome, which may be related to their underlying disease."

And both sides will cock their heads at the other and think, "Ho ho ho, what buffoonery and nonsense; they just don't understand."

Which is not to say that I don't agree with one side or the other. I think one side of that duality is mostly correct. But the parallel is funny and interesting to me.

Well, it's happened once or twice
Someone couldn't pay the price
And I'm afraid I had to rake 'em 'cross the coals!
True, I've had the odd complaint
But on the whole I've been a SAINT
To these poor unfortunate sooooooooouls!

Oh, "Cancerian round?" That explains a lot about my life.

I cannot begin to explain how much I LOVE to get lost in the depths of the Internet, it's really one of my favorite past times. Most times I have a reason to begin my search, then once that is done I begin delving into the content of different sites and looking up subjects/names mentioned in other tabs on my browser, then do the same with those tabs. Sometimes, I just like to search things like 'glitter' or 'Jello molds' and see where that takes me. I keep a running list of interesting subjects and websites on my Evernote and revisit them later on.

Haha, I just realized how amazingly strange this makes me sound, but I can't help but be so intrigued by the vast amount of information (fact, fiction, absurd) the Internet has to offer! I LOVE going to libraries as well and just walking around browsing the books, so I guess that kind of translates into my love for random Internet wormholes...

@c2d I use Pocket for that. It's got a really nice interface, though it's admittedly geared more toward blog posts.

Oh, and you're not amazingly strange; I'm the same way!

After a night of stargazing my boyfriend and I were looking up the various constellations we were looking at and we ended up on these amazing fantasy painting websites. Full of visitor counters, midi new age music, and paintings of pegacorns.

@Weasley Pegacorns...is that what pirates get when their wooden legs don't fit right?

This reminds me that I spent part of last weekend reading through the "Metaphysical/Astrology" magazine section at Barnes & Noble, and it was GREAT. Astral projections! Channeling! So many numbers for psychics! The universe awakening!

I have to try to remember these things. If he can work on it that's one thing but you need to find out for yourself if it really is a deal breaker because you can't count on things to change really.Video
