Grrrrr! Space.com is a relatively high-profile site that usually promotes science. That is until today when they started listing horoscopes. I guess after securing $50 million in second round funding, they will do anything for hits.

Like when the Discovery channel and the Learning Channel have shows about UFOs and ghosts. Just kinda creepy.

And you know, science is always right, and astrology is just a parlor game.

Look, for $50 million, I'd hire an astrologer too if it makes them happy. What the hell, it's just the Net, it's just the truth. Nothing to get all huffy about.

Besides, They're not even good horoscopes. No one's gonna read them anyway.

Actually, I prefer these horoscopes from the Onion.

Agreed. They're good too.

But don't you think that publishing those horoscopes diminishes the Onion's credibility as a viable scientific news outlet?
