Just skimmed over something with the phrase "the last full moon" (as in, the most recent) but my heart skipped a beat thinking, "The FINAL full moon? There won't be another? What's happening to the MOON?" because fine, that's a normal thing to worry about this year.

@erinbee Yeah, in 2020 that is totally within scope.

- Minimoon was here briefly
- Witches had moon hexing drama
- Everyone briefly obsessed with comet photography
- People are praying for an asteroid to hit

Yeah, checks out

@erinbee "Hey, funny thing... we kinda misplaced the Moon. Sorry about the tides. Anyway, Happy 2021 everybody!"

@erinbee clearly this is comeback from the Moon Hex Incident back in July and we must resign ourselves to unreliable tides and using more batteries while night camping 😒

@vyr "Don't worry, though. The moon is scientifically OK and definitely won't fall out of the sky,"

There's plenty of other ways to destroy a moon, NPR. Fact check, plz!

@erinbee Erin, this sounds like you have a prioritized list ready to go 😟

i'm gonna cross my fingers and assume it's for a good cause, like werewolf control

@vyr I never specified Earth's moon, and now I've said too much

@erinbee Oh my god, the hex worked. The baby witches were right all along

@matt I guess it really only did take four witches. Or the moon was humiliated after getting utterly owned on TikTok

@pagrus This reminds me of that joke –

Q: Can someone who's into astrology tell me which thing out in space is causing my problems?

A: It's Earth

@erinbee Yes, it's mostly harmless but that doesn't cover everything obviously

@erinbee “The moon blew up without warning and for no apparent reason. It was waxing, only one day short of full. The time was 05:03:12 UTC. Later it would be designated A+0.0.0, or simply Zero.”
