    I didn't pay attention... did he see his shadow or no?

    Yes, 6 more weeks of winter. Someone needs to smack that little rat upside the head!

    I don't understand how a rodent can predict the season by its shadow.

    Ah...

    You know rodents. Their teeth twitch in cold weather.
    Every moment of a life is a horrible tragedy, a slapstick comedy, dark nihilism, golden illumination, or nothing at all; depending on how we write the story we tell ourselves.

    That still doesn't explain how a groundhog predicts a season with its shadow.

    The shadow thing is a myth.

    To predict the weather, you have to look closely at the teeth, and count the chatters-per-second. This worked fine until the late 1950s with the invention of television. When the teeth-chatter count was filmed for television, the producers were afraid it would frighten children.

    They decided to do the chatter-count privately and, on film, pretend it was all about shadow-seeing.

    Now, nobody remembers the real history of this tradition.

    We live in the post reality age.

    Anything you can say with a straight face is true for the rabble.
