It’s the Vernal Equinox

The West Wing is one of my favourite TV shows and there’s an episode featuring a staff card game (tenuous link to gambling, I know), where CJ claims that at the exact moment of the vernal equinox you can stand an egg on it’s end. Guess what peeps – the vernal equinox is today!
We all have our superstitions when it comes to playing, be that our lucky underpants, rabbits foot or whatever – its these things that give us comfort and can bring us happiness, even if other people don’t believe that they work. I have a science background, but I still have a few talismans lurking around that I refuse to give up.
Don’t know about you, but I’m going to give the egg thing a try tonight, who’s with me…?
