Most random Jim Jones reference?

Back in March, I came across a music video that used borrowed historical clips from The People’s Temple in Jonestown. Yeah. Last night I found a horoscope (I have a google alert for “Guyana”; I am not an avid horoscope reader – at least not anymore) that managed to use the Jonestown story to dispense some advice for Sagittarians:

“Tourists rarely go to the South American nation of Guyana. That’s mostly because much of it is virgin rain forest and there are few amenities for travelers. In part it’s also due to the reputation-scarring event that occurred there in 1978, when cult-leader Reverend Jim Jones led a mass suicide of his devotees. Last year, after travel writer Jeff Greenwald announced his trip to Guyana, his friends responded with a predictable joke: “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid!” – a reference to the beverage Jones spiked with cyanide before telling his followers to drink up. But Greenwald was glad he went. The lush, tangled magnificence of Guyana was tough to navigate but a blessing to the senses and a first-class adventure. Be like him, Sagittarius. Consider engaging with a situation that offers challenging gifts. Overcome your biases about a potentially rewarding experience.”

Yeah.
