Nonetheless, if our on-line world has felt particularly prickly these final months, reduction is in sight for our overloaded neural networks. Mars stations direct in Gemini on January twelfth, when not less than a number of the on-line dumpster fires shall be extinguished. Mars is the planet we affiliate with confrontation.
