Interesting Stories on this Cancer New Moon
Well, it is a goofy news cycle these last few days. And when goofy happens on New Moons I always like to ponder what the cycle will bring.
If you google "UFO over China" you will find various stories about an Airport closed in a China province because of a UFO. Evidently, it was seen by many and was seen on radar. All perfectly interesting. But the part that somewhat humored me was this other article I found.
Apparently, bookies favor China to have the first contact with Aliens. Sure, aliens love fried rice.
China Tipped for Extraterrestrial First Contact

(12 July 2010) Leading bookmaker, Paddy Power, has today slashed the odds on China being the first country to establish first contact with extraterrestrial life following strong betting patterns in support of the East Asian giant.
China was available at odds of 6/1 for first contact before the weekend but has been cut into 4/1 second favourite following several large bets including one of €500.
The betting frenzy was sparked by reports on Friday of a UFO soaring across the night sky over South East China which forced Xiaoshan International Airport to ground several flights to avoid a collision.
While the Chinese government has remained tight-lipped, punters wasted no time backing China which has resulted in Paddy Power facing a payout in excess of €25,000 should they be proved correct.
And my OTHER favorite story was Paul the Psychic Octopus has officially gone into retirement. After a phenomenal run of picking all the winners in last month's world cup (when asked)--Paul our favorite psychic invertebrate will pick no more winners. He is now going back to his first love, 'making children laugh."
It will be an interesting 28 days.
