I declare the thread open!

It seems like there would be no secrets on a mission like Juno.  Maybe in the name?  If you were paying a billion bucks would you let them keep secrets from you?

Very tired. Had to get up early to bring my car in for a safety recall. 40 minute drive. They gave me loaner car, so I did two more 40 minute drives. When I got my car back, I saw that they cracked the front windshield, so now I have to back again later this week and do the same thing over again. Bastards.

Strange Evidence: Monsters and Mysteries, sounds pretty good.

There seems to be a central theme that flows through all Science Channel shows.  Maybe it is science?  IT is something.

The fog on the Sci Chan show is 100 times more dense than this Hollywood Ghost-laden fog.

Maybe it is a newly landed alien.  It seemed to have six legs.  Nothing on Earth had six legs.

Transformers seem like such primitive technology.

It seems like there should be some form of quantum transformer for light power.

There is a lot of power in the radiation of Jupiter if we could only take advantage of it.  Quick, somebody figure out how use Jovian radiation to heat up some water to make steam.

It is amazing that planets make a N/S magnetic field, and not some 10-legged magnetic field.  Like it is a universal law.

Magnetism has a North and South in such an inalienable manner as time has a past and future.
