Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Imagine scientists invented a cheap way to lock humans into the age of their choice, but once you picked how old you wanted to be, it was irreversible.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) We’re taught the old cliché, “if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again.” It’s actually not a bad philosophy, most of the time; few truly valuable goals can be achieved without persistence and determination.
