Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot

Battle over the "Happy Birthday" song continues

Looks like the copyright on the song should have expired long ago, but when you make enough money from it..
A 1927 kids' songbook proves "conclusively the song is in the public domain."

Ask Google Maps if you are there yet enough times

I actually think this is a great feature. Humans display a range of emotions to give other people information, and I think devices could use such tactics in a similar way.

Along with Siri and Cortana, I think a system that has attitude might prevent you from doing something you really shouldn't be doing. Just imagine how many people would stop spamming the "check for Update" button if their phone told them to sit down, stop, and behave? 😛
The latest update to Google Maps on Android carries a hidden Easter egg when you ask, "Are we there yet?".

Climate Change Deniers worry about truth-based rankings

“I worry about this issue greatly,” said Anthony Watts, founder of climate denying website “Watts Up With That,” in an interview with FoxNews.com. “My site gets a significant portion of its daily traffic from Google… It is a very slippery and dangerous slope because there’s no arguing with a machine.”

The irony is palpable. You are right, there is no arguing with machines, like all the temperature sensors and climate models that support climate change.

Just like there's no arguing with climate change deniers.

Ugh. I hate teabaggers. I remember seeing this one video where someone Fist of Panic'd the ground, then got killed, his killer came by to teabag, and then got killed from the aftershock of the Fist of Panic. Postmortem Medal pops up.

Not a bad spot if you wanted a scenic resting area when near Battleship/Bank Center/Aquarium, and a nice place if you wanted to walk/run. There's a sign for free Wi-Fi but that appears to be nonfunctioning.

Quick service, pretty cheap prices, and a clean store. Selection is a little limited but price beats the campus center.

Great place to view the surrounding forest and even view distant places like Atlantic City. Be sure to keep it clean, as people seem to enjoy leaving behind trash.

Great place to walk/bike/drive into/out of Philly. Traffic never seems that bad and the incline isn't too bad but nice to burn a few more calories over just walking. Nice place to take photos from and usually people walking across are friendly or keep to themselves.

Great wilderness area, there's a few places that are great to stop by and eat lunch if you're on a long drive through the area.

Pretty diverse amount of stores, and wide open walking spaces. Food court is pretty tiny, no free wifi, and it closes pretty early (specially on Sunday).
