Aurora Australis

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150704.html

Not fireworks, these intense shimmering lights still danced across Earth's night skies late last month, seen here above the planet's geographic south pole. The stunning auroral displays were triggered as a coronal mass ejection blasted from the Sun days earlier impacted the magnetosphere, beginning a widespread geomagnetic storm. The six fisheye panels were recorded with digital camera and battery in a heated box to guard against -90 degree F ambient temperatures of the long winter night. Around the horizon are south pole astronomical observatories, while beyond the Aurora Australis stretch the stars of the southern Milky Way.

I think we're up to 300,000 infections a year. We need to start thinking of gene drives to knock either the bacteria or the ticks out of existence.

These Star Wars woodblock prints are amazing!
And yes, the prints are officially licensed by Lucasfilm.

Huh. The $16M, 40 year-old F-16 kicks butt over the $300M, sparkly F-35.

Sure, let's spend over $1 Trillion on the F-35. Makes sense. Meanwhile. the Russians and Chinese are watching gleefully, popcorn in hand.
F-35 pilot found his aircraft "substantially inferior" in close battle.

Taking the gesture for a metametaphor -- the metaphor of a metaphor, then the dog might be alluding to the dogs of Rev 22:15 and the squirrel to the author(s) of that metaphor. What's a dog in that verse?

Damn, I wish I'd thought of that. Here's an elegant, simple idea that was staring us in the face.
 
Quantum-dot spectrometer is small enough to function within a smartphone http://ow.ly/30Qots
Instruments that measure the properties of light, known as spectrometers, are widely used in physical, chemical, and biological research. These devices are usually too large to be portable, but MIT scientists have now shown they can create spectrometers small enough to fit inside a smartphone camera, ...

Condemning Donald Trump's obvious racism would be the easiest thing a Republican could do, but no one's doing it

He's got a great comb-over, though.

The rest of those clowns are racist as well, otherwise they would have denounced him. They agree, and with them 100 million rednecks.

The Turkey Cobb on rosemary bread is not just a sandwich. It is the exemplar, the platonic ideal of what a sandwich should be. Just go. You'll see. Also good is the foccacia and the chocolate chunk cookies. I agree that the service is a little slow, sometimes. But I'm always happy when my order arrives, so I don't mind.
