Thank you NASA ...
The moon will get in the way of our sunlight again in March, at least for some of us. Two new animations from NASA show how it all works, and where the darkness will be strongest.

Really, who COULDN'T use a remote-control trash can?
Find taking out the trash a bit tedious? YouTube tinkerer Colin Furze has an idea that makes the chore as fun as piloting a remote-controlled car.

Kind of glad they're not ...

Rock on!

One of the most rude places in town. As a local, I have consistently been treated with no respect. The bartenders here act as though they are pissed off that you have even entered the bar. You wonder what kind of torturous working conditions they are there beneath. And you know what? The bar is not even that fun. Dark, boring and they take themselves way too seriously. Haven't seen a bartender smile here in three years. You wonder why the joint is even still in business based on all the other welcoming places on town.
