So there's this asteroid coming. Kind of close. On April 13, 2036. And it might hit us. And maybe we should do something about it. In the next five or six years?
The French, apparently, have an idea. Sounds good to me. The Russians have an idea too. But. They are the Russians, don'cha know...
And anything we do might make it worse. And we have to decide soon-ish rather than late-ish.
Just loves this kind of stuff.
Full story here.
(I apologize in advance to any French or Russian persons. I'm a product of my times.)
"LONDON — It came with wobbly writing and hand-drawn diagrams, but an elementary school science project has made it into a peer-reviewed journal from Britain's prestigious Royal Society.
Biology Letters published a report Wednesday conducted and written by a group of 8- to 10-year-olds from an English elementary school investigating the way bumblebees see colors and patterns. The scientific organization — which is more than three centuries old and includes some of the world's most eminent scientists — said the children reported findings that were a "genuine advance" in the field of insect color and pattern vision."

And Associated Press, in our paper today, lists them as fun toys for techie kids.
Are they nuts? After we just had a suicide of a college kid who was secretly recorded?
Associated Press, you blew it. Jakks Pacific - how stupid can you get?

On the outside of the envelope it says: Free Pre-Paid Cremation!
oh. um. wow!
Inside - after making the argument for cremation, which has its merits, but jeeeeze....
Anyway, I can enter a drawing for a FREE cremation! Actually I can enter The Engineer, since it is addressed to him.... and I can send them my email address and phone number! We can discuss this over and over and over! They even list last month's winner so I when I run into her at the grocery store I can say, "Carol! I see you're all set up to make the big campfire!"
I'm just gobsmacked...

And he almost fainted. This is a new display case. The beer in this case is from specialty breweries, craft breweries, in WA state. Some from his all time favorite. He got on his phone, he took pictures, he posted to his Facebook account. SPREAD the WORD!!! The boys were actually planning a road trip to Spokane, in January, to score some of this beer.
batch made and deemed NOT WORTHY! So cruising the interwebz, sending GB to the store and trying our second batch tonight.... (picture representative - am NOT going to make it green...)

Nothing I would ever do.... but the beginning where he talked about how to make a perfect burger, like normal people would :-) and that was instructive. I like the science of food and how it works.
It has been confirmed by her constant attention to the fireplace. If allowed, we think she would climb inside.
