For Christmas, my daughter got me the Demotivator calendar from despair.com. Each month has a "demotivating" slogan, with daily demotivating tidbits. The slogan for January: "Economics - The science of explaining tomorrow why the predictions you made yesterday didn't come true today."
Here is the first daily posting for January 1, 2010:
* It's New Year's Day and It's Epoch! (1970)
* Edwin Hubble announces the existence of other galaxies. Alien species thriled to finally be legitimized. (1925)
