    Last weekend saw a supermoon ascend into the Earthling skyline. If you were like us, you trembled in fear, then prepared for apocalypse by drinking heavily. Or, maybe you just marveled at the spectacular skyline created by the moon effect. In honor of her beauty and peculiar ability to change outfits, we have decided the moon is the most cosmopolitan of all astrological bodies.
