Message Subject Notes from an "alternate universe": September 29 - October 28. (Do you know what happened at Farpoint Station?)

September 29 is the canary in the gold mine (or iron mine).

Those in the UK should heed their former meridian.

(Note: by "Western civilization" I was really only referring to the tentacles of a certain empire, but not really naming names)

canary in the gold mine

care to explain this expression to a non english speaker?
 Quoting: Gespenst


Surely.

"canary in the gold mine (or iron mine)" has a triple meaning. Referring to:

-Canary Islands
-A warning, as canary birds were used by coal miners because the toxic gases such as carbon monoxide and methane in the mine would kill the bird first.
-The name of the location is phonetically identical to the Spanish word for "iron"

The location of this event has another meaning, also. The thing itself that came alive on September 29th is the canary.

But, alas, most of us are expecting October 1st to come early.
