Week fifty four of Operation Graphite  – theme: Year of the Snake.

Apparently the year of the snake is fairly unlucky. During years of the Dragon, the birthrate goes way up in China. However, for years of the Snake, the Birthrate drops. Few choose to have children born under that sign. Just as the snake is demonized in western culture, the Chinese also view the snake as an inauspicious sign. The Stock market crash and beginning of the Great Depression, the Attack on Pearl Harbor, the Tiananmen Square massacre, and the September 11th attack all happened in years of the Snake. Sorry to begin 2013 on a downer, but this might be a challenging year.
