Benevolent Misanthrope: crypticsatellite: ArcadianRefugee: IronTom: It just put one up that I can't quite figure out. It is probably some micro-organism:

i256.photobucket.com

any ideas?

Top view of a cantelupoe or somethin.

Ah! That's what I was thinking, but couldn't access! Stupid brain.

That, son, is the ass end of a [Galia] melon.


Wkipedia: The Galia melon, also known as Sarda in Southeast Asia, is a type of F₁ hybrid melon originating from a cross between the green flesh melon cultivar "Ha-Ogen" and the netted rind melon cultivar "Krimka".

Wait;; is that an actual hypehn like "ha ogen" or is that a spaceholder? cos I keetp reading that as "halogen" and that doesn't tysaty.

/fark, i'm leaving that word that way. tried to correct it 4 times. screw it

Just set up a series recording of tomorrow night's "Man versus the Universe," in addition to "How the Universe Works."

Maybe we should all DVR the Wednesday shows and watch them the following Tuesday.

הָעֹגֶן is in Israel.  It can be transliterated as HaOgen, Ha'Ogen, or Ha-Ogen.

Apparently, they have nice melons.

Looks yellowish-green to me. Slightly more green than my Narragansett Del's Shandy.

A planet is a rare thing in the known universe.  Sure every star apparently has a few, but the good ones are probably hard to find.  It is probably cool to go planet hopping as a young alien, or as a retired alien maybe.  Still, it is unlikely to see an alien around here.  Maybe we're just not ready, or not interesting enough yet.  Still, we've got a whole planet full of resources.

I don't know, but it was all over the freaking news for weeks. I was just lucky to happen to be taking astronomy class during Hale-Bopp, so I had access to the good telescopes and binoculars. That was pretty cool.

Supposedly all the presidents were in Africa at the same time last year to visit an alien that had come to Earth.  I doubt it, but it is a sort of tantalizing thought.

Maybe they arrived millions of years ago and we'e the result. We're the result of the actions of some retired alien swingers in their RVs, cursing across the galaxy, powered by zero point energy and alien viagra.

Transubstantiation no doubt works with any kind of bread and liquid, one would think.  Never heard of the grape juice thing.  Do Baptists have communion?  They don't drink ;)

I loved my astronomy prof. I got away with so much crap with her. She liked me for some reason. I remember we were talking in class once about the giant binocular scope that was being built on Mt. Graham. Our professor was telling us that The Vatican was funding a large part of it, and one of the students asked, "Why would the Vatican be funding a telescope?"

And without even thinking to censor myself, I said, "Because they're looking for God."

Half the class erupted in laughter. The other half of the class, not so much. My professor did everything she could to keep a straight face.
