It looked like 9:30 p.;m. deorbit burn and landing, ahh, landing in Dzhezkazgan.

It can't possibly be coming back to earth tonight. It was 200,000,000 miles away just a few hours ago.

it is impressive even e. it ever reads cursive, I can't figure out how to delete misspelled res yet

Considering that view, I would think they might use a volume measurement greater than "gallons."

I got the python cryptic MIDI generator running yesterday, and put some cryptic music into the song.  I put in two sections, one with a standard deviation of 2 and followed by one with a std dev of 7.  It needs some good mixing though, as it just sits over the top of everything screaming random notes.  Need to modify the synthesizer that the MIDI is driving so that it sounds like Sputnik, which only has two overtones, and then make it morph into something scary.  May have to modify the code, to only generate a certain number of notes.  Then it needs to be modified to create the random number music for Ecmo.

120 bpm, I tried to make the cryptic MIDI fit into that but it has some of its own mind.  120 bpm, since it starts with a countdown to liftoff at one second intervals, ten, nine, eight....  could have gone for 60 bpm, but then it starts to sounds like Type-O Neg, or some really slow heavy metal, which is fine, but, a space battle seems like it would go faster.

As far as abandoned places go, that cave place was pretty cool. I'd go there in the 1200's and bring a whole hog up the ladder to cook, and have a nice dinner party with the inhabitants.

At least then they won't eat 'long pork', hopefully.

There weren't any tours when I was in Key West because the seas were too choppy. This was in June, so it would have been beautiful weather when there weren't thunderstorms.

You haven't been out to the keys? That's like living in Arizona and not seeing the Grand Canyon. I've been exactly twice for about 2 hours total. It's just a big hole in the ground.

I've been stung by wasps before. The pain went up my leg (stung on lower leg) and lasted quite a while.

I got a good sting from a yellow-jacket on my hand while playing a drum cadence in college marching band. F*cker hurt! Good thing I'm not allergic to anything.

Wasps have such stupid little legs that they are probably jealous of human legs, and attack them when they can.
