I didn't believe my wife when she said she was upset about my obsession with The Monkeys.

And then I saw her face.

Idle speculation here, but...  Equation Group...  Cicada 3301?

Both groups obviously have global resources...  even the resources of a State...

Tinfoil hats are a Conspiracy by the Aluminum Industry in concert with the Orbital Mind Control Lasers.

Everyone knows that in order to Block radio signals, you use a Faraday Cage.

Well, Faraday Cages need to be GROUNDED.

Tinfoil Hats aren't grounded.

The Aluminum Industry is a shill for Orbital Mind Control Lasers who want people to Think that they're Protected.

Do your research, Sheeple!  Look for the Truth!

Carl Sagan worked closely with NASA on the Voyager missions.

25 years ago, with the primary mission over and both Voyager spacecraft well on their journeys outside of our solar system, Sagan convinced the flight controllers to perform a risky maneuver: turn Voyager 1 around and take a series of pictures of the planets from a distant vantage point. The risk was that, as the craft imaged the inner planets, the light from the sun might burn out the sensor in the camera.

25 years ago today, one of the most iconic images of the Earth was taken... Not a very detailed image; our planet took up less than a pixel... but it was a paradigm changing image, none-the-less, taken from 6 billion kilometers away.

Here are Carl Sagan's thoughts on that image, from his book Pale Blue Dot:

For those hoping that SpaceX would be able to land their Falcon 9 first stage this time: Weather is preventing the landing pad from staying in place.  (25+ ft waves?  Yeah, I wouldn't risk my (purely hypothetical) ship either.)

Reports are that the first stage soft landed within 10 meters of the target, and would have probably successfully landed if the weather was favorable.

Regardless, the primary mission is so far a huge success, with DSCOVR well on its way to L1.

For when you need your water to be HD.  Great from direct streaming.

Unfortunately, water doesn't do compression very well.  At least not lossless compression.  A compression algorithm of removing every other water molecule does lead to 50% reduction in volume, though, if you don't mind artifacts when decompressing.
 
German hardware stores have just about everything.

They have gotten my drive-through orders wrong 6 times in a row. Today, they couldn't get "4 bacon egg and cheese McGriddles" right, and instead gave me 4 bacon egg and cheese biscuits. Last time, I asked for no ketchup on a burger and got extra ketchup. I don't expect much, since it's fast food... but it's not too much to ask for the guy taking my order to hit the right buttons on his screen, and confirm that the right options pop up, especially when it happens at different times of day with different people taking the order.
