Guys! It is officially the Year Of The Snake, one of the twelve animals in the Chinese lunar new year cycle. Years of the Snake have hosted some pretty upsetting shit in the past --most recently the Tienanmen Square massacre in 1989 and the attack on the World Trade Center in NYC in 2001. But this particular one should be a bit mellower in the violence department, thanks to it being a water snake year; water chills things out. The last Water snake year, 1953, the Korean War ended and color television began.
