"Virtually everything you decide today will be wrong."
Have you ever read "The long dark tea-time of the soul" by Douglas Adams? One of
my favorite side stories is that the person who writes the horoscope for the
newspaper the protagonist reads is an old friend of him, and writes the columns
deliberately to wind him up. "The paper's circulation had dropped nearly by a
twelfth since the "Great Zarganza" had taken up writing the horoscopes..." So
maybe Dirk Gently is a Leo...
