Woke up this morning, turned on the computer and this was on the front page of the Toronto Star:
Here's even more news - it's every where:
And there's the videos of the meteor on Youtube:
...Scientists all over the world are saying, "Don't panic! It's only a total coincidence that this meteor crashed a day before that big asteroid is projected to pass REALLY CLOSE TO EARTH (and we promise that it won't hit us!)"
Despite all this reassurance from the "experts", Man Yung had to overreact.
"IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD! IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD" he screamed, waving his arms up and down and running around in circles of unbridled terror (AGAINST the line of dance!)
We should all use this opportunity to dance like there is no tomorrow. Or at least, dance like there is no-one there (to watch), because if it is "THE END OF THE WORLD", your audience would be too busy screaming, waving their arms up and down like flapping mad chickens and running in circles etc. to really enjoy your "performance".
Maybe it's also time to dance without thinking about fame or profit, and sort of empty your mind and go with the flow and really feel the music and the embrace in your dancing - because a big name and prestige or the pennies you may earn from teaching/performing/swindling tango newbies won't be worth much once you cross over to... TANGO HELL.
Or perhaps, it's time to really cherish what is really important in your life - like, your family and your loved ones and your friends and NOT TANGO. Yep, skip that milonga and go tell the important people in your life how much you love them. Tango is only a hobby! Or worse - Tango is only an illusion! Or even, even worse - Tango Blogging is a waste of time and effort (stop typing and hug your cats now!)
Good luck to everyone and we hope that you have sufficient asteroid collision insurance!
