“Moon” and “Mega-Millions”?

Okay, so what’s the link between the “moon” and “mega-millions”? Nothing much really except for that fact these two terms are currently the most searched keywords according to Google Trends.That means that right now (or last night actually), people want to know about the $201 Million jackpot. Apparently, I’m quite disappointed because nobody I knew (including myself) won… So let’s move on to the next Google-citing thing: Tonight’s SuperMoon! (Yes, I did say “SuperMoon” and yes, I did say “Google-citing”.)

If you haven’t heard (although, I’m 97.3% sure that you have), the moon will be the closest ever to the Earth since 1993. [Someone] personally told me that it would be the size of a turkey to the naked human eye! That’s one juicy moon!

Whether you care about the SuperMoon or think it’s a SuperHype, I bet you’ll be tempted to stick your head out the window tonight — either to witness a “once-in-a-blue-moon” wonder or confirm that you are, in fact, the God(dess) of Hype Detector. And if you didn’t win any Mega-bucks last night (so sorry, I feel your pain), perhaps it won’t be such a bad idea to place a friendly bet with friends and family tonight about this SuperMoon vs SuperHype event.
