a cosmic solstice to you!

One of my all-time favorite VSauce videos on YouTube is this one, which takes the viewer on a tour from how we measure days, to the calculations used to design calendars through the centuries, to the very motion of the earth through space:

According to Michael Stephens in the above video, the solstice is on December 22—today. I was given a reminder of this just yesterday. Happy Solstice, fellow Druids and pagans.

In other cosmic news: a neighbor's cows huddle into the shape of a cross. Of course Fox News is reporting this. Sorry, but... Jesus H. Christ.

NB: one article says the feed troughs were shaped in a cross pattern (note how the animals are facing inward and toward each other). The cows don't actually give a shit.
