Everything is going according to my nefarious plans …

Bwahahaha!

My league of minions is ever-growing…

I received an email recently from the author of the blog Omnologos. It seems he caught the National Geographic magazine in a scientific error, and one that was astronomy-based! A writer for the magazine got a little confused over the timing of the "midnight Sun".

So it appears I need not even be around for the debunking to occur.

OK, it’s not really a debunking, since the NatGeo article author wasn’t trying to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes, and in fact it’s a mistake I would have missed if I had read the article anyway. But see, that’s why I need minions.
