  10. Mercury goes retrograde 3 times a year making a mess of things. (Like the coding and text layout on this page for instance ... ugly, no? See how this lettering is butting up against the number 260? And the table cell is being stretched WAY out of proportion, making it look like I don't know how to code. This just wouldn't happen under normal circumstances when Mercury goes in the right direction. But I tell you, when it appears from the planet Earth's vantage point that Mercury is going the wrong way -- it's closer to the sun, eh, so it does that kind of trompe l'oeil like when a wagon wheel looks like it's going the wrong way but it isn't -- all things go haywire. Afterall, Mercury is the God of Communication. And well, you're e-mail will probably go down and you'll miss your train, or your reservation will be lost at the airport... you get my drift. Anyway, that's Mercury Retrograde.)
