Today we remember the brave colonists of The Hundred Lives. It is the Feast Day of Saint Drom, and in the garden, there are daikons.
Be Safe, and Stay Out of Trouble.
Welcome to the Hidden Almanac, I’m Reverend Mord.
Today is September 7th, 2015.
It was on this day in 3046 that the generation ship “Hundred Lives” entered orbit around the planet Urycon-43, a planet with earth-like atmosphere, but approximately three and a half times the size of earth itself. Oxygen generating bacteria were seeded across the planet to begin the long process of terraforming. It would take three more generations before the atmosphere could support human life, and the instability introduced caused a runaway greenhouse effect that made life on the surface precarious for a very long time. Expecting this, the first colonists built their facilities underground to prevent damage from the megastorms.
…that has not actually happened.
Ah. This is a script from 5102, not 2015. The interns have been playing around with temporal instabilities again, trying to get the daikons to germinate early. I have told them that bending time to start seeds is inconsistent with the principles of sustainable agriculture, but the young never listen.
Uh…This beloved saint was best known for her many miracles and sacred texts…(papers shuffling)…da-da-dah…represented as a middle-aged woman in rainbow vestments holding…ah….
This is unfortunate.
This cannot be allowed to stand.
