If you are up right now in the US, head outside. That is one funky moon. Like being on another planet.

I asked my wife if she would make me chocolate chip cookies for my upcoming birthday. And I asked, since it's my birthday, if she could make them with the forbidden ingredients of gluten and dairy. Her response revealed much. She said, "What about the other kids?"

Star Blazers was my favorite show as a kid. 

I was pretty disappointed when I learned that NASA’s space shuttle didn't even have weapons. Star Blazers Remastered (English) Opening & Closing Theme
