You have got to look at this cool post, about how tiny the Earth is in view of the universe. It ‘s a great pictorial example of the perspective of the planets and stars. I’d post the photos here if I could, but I think they belong to somebody. Check it out, it’s cool!

Entrecard Ire

8 Comments

I’ve had Entrecard on this blog for a few weeks now. I’ve also read SCADS and SCADS of posts about Entrecards– how you can pimp the system, get more credits, sell credits, fanagle the widgets, make and use plugins… blah blah blah. I’m not a big dropper for this blog, anyway. Who has all that […]

I recently read Newton Minow’s speech, “Television and the Public Interest.” Newton Minow was FCC Chairman, and gave the speech in May 1961. It was renamed “Television and the Vast Wasteland” because that was the most memorable part of the speech. Have you ever read it? Do you read speeches? If you do not, it […]

I found this hilarious story at Live, Love, Laugh (not a blog for kids). After being married for 44 years, I took a careful look at my wife one day and said, “Honey, 44 years ago we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10-inch black and […]

Slaves to Be Slaves

Comments Off on Slaves to Be Slaves

Have you heard the expression “slaves to be free”? I think it’s been around since the Civil War era. Today, however, I think Americans are slaves to be slaves. I’d heard a story a few years ago, a true story. It is a poignant picture of the state of the American culture and mind in […]

Grow your own dope: plant a man. All generalizations are FALSE. A woman’s place is in the house… AND in the senate. If you’re psychic, think honk. Dyslexics are teeple poo. Jack Kevorkian for White House physician.

A Car That Runs On Air!

March 19, 2008

This is so cool! It is the best idea for cars I’ve seen yet. It runs on air, and can go for 200 miles on one tank of compressed air. It can also read a speed of up to 60 miles per hour, which is much better than the 30mph cars I’ve heard about. The […]
