Once again, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has seen evidence of water being ejected from Jupiter's icy moon Europa.

First and foremost: Traffic is total crap. Yeah, it’s always been bad, but wow. There are more and more times of the day when getting into or out of town — through surface streets clogged by your fellow desperate travelers, horns blowing and mouths open wide in cursing screams you can’t hear over your own screams of dire frustration — is nearly impossible.
It's as if Seattle belongs to someone else now. Our fair city is fast becoming like that person you used to hang out with all the time, who's now running with a different crowd, a crowd you just can't or don't want to hang with.

God gave us a bountiful garden, but we have turned it into a polluted wasteland of "debris, desolation and filth," the pope 
If God exists, any god, then humans are absolved of responsibility for the Earth. If there are no gods or God, then humans are ultimately responsible for this blue pearl floating in a vast nothingness.

Basically, SETI groups tend to quickly follow up on any hint of a signal from an alien civilization because, well, ALIENS!
Year-old notes that included a potential radio signal produced by aliens were leaked to the media last week, and they are causing scientists within the search for extraterrestrial intelligence or SETI community to race to confirm the signal blip.

Now we get to look back at the games as they unfolded for the unfortunate athletes who stumbled, fell, slipped, crashed or fouled in front of the world and those all-seeing, unforgiving cameras.

This is a time-lapse video of traffic developing this morning in the Seattle region - we all know how it's going to go. It's going to suck. But watching it from the bird's-eye view of Google Maps with the traffic overlay is still pretty interesting.

Flying a bit under the radar in August, the federal National Institute on Drug Abuse wrote an explainer to a significant longitudinal study involving young twins and marijuana pointing out that marijuana did not cause a decrease in IQ.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump brought his rolling circus of controversy to Everett on Tuesday, and the public event is set to turn out pretty much as expected.

The discovery is great science. But, let's be honest, it suggests a future that is either entirely impossible or so distant from our current era as to be utterly pointless to talk about.

There's not a lot left to say about Hempfest, possibly the world's largest "protestival" ... including saying "possibly," because we've not been to every marijuana festival in the world. But, brothers and sisters, it's big. More than 100,000 people on three linked major city parks big.
