The Russian Tunnel of Death

The 3,150 m long Lefortovo Tunnel in Russia is the longest ‘in-city’ tunnel in all of Europe. There is a river running over it and water leaks at some points. When the temperature reaches minus 38 degrees like it did last winter, the road freezes and the result is the attached video taken during a single day with the tunnel camera.

The new Zodiac signs

As you’ve heard there is a new Zodiac chart which most probably changed your sign.  I feel for those who tattooed their sign on their ass.  (Not really)

Here are the new signs and their corresponding dates:

  • Cancer signCapricorn: January 20- to February 16
  • Aquarius: February 16 to March 11
  • Pisces: March 11 to April 18
  • Aries: April 18 to May 13
  • Taurus: May 13 to June 21
  • Gemini: June 21 to July 20
  • Cancer: July 20 to August 10
  • Leo: August 10 to September 16
  • Virgo: September 16 to October 30
  • Libra: October 30 to November 23
  • Scorpio: November 23 to November 29
  • Ophiuchus: November 29 to December 17
  • Sagittarius: December 17 to January 20

I’ve been a Leo ever since I can remember.  And now all of a sudden I’ve been downgraded to a Cancer?

Why didn’t my previous horoscope warn me of this change?
