Ouroboros

Happy "I Just Missed May Day"!

As the planets come into alignment, let us remember that a wet (yet scorching) heat will soon envelop the earth, flowers will burst from the earth half-formed (like orcs)*, the wolf will lie down with the lamb, the leopard lie down with the kit, and a child shall lead them.

Enjoy your days of dewy coolness now, for they are numbered.**

*I would also like to point out that this is the day that 16-bit NOP (Perform no operation) instructions occasionally become BAR (Jump and Save Base Register) instructions. Just as God himself intended, I'm sure. Don't laugh - it happened to me today.***

**Offer not valid for readers in the Southern Hemishere.

*** Actually, that was probably somebody else's fault, unless it's my fault for not understanding it. Long story longer, the alignment of the planets has made today infinitely more bearable than yesterday.
