I thought the main shield world from the Halo books was a lot bigger than what they depicted in Halo 4. Turns out, the first shield world the humans come across is 2AU in size. From what I remember, it was effectively a star system unto itself.
Determining the Real Sizes of Objects in Halo - Update. Full article is here - this is just the Cascade Scaling images, redone at 1280x720. An older version, created for Halo Waypoint, is here. All work was done by Stephen Loftus (SoundEffect) This collection was totally overhauled in June 2014.

Drove on the highway for the first time tonight. Wish my dad's SUV wasn't so damn big and full of junk. Went OK, slowly getting over my fear of driving.

"If you're atheist, you aren't very intelligent" - my mother

Reasons not to be openly atheist around Christian parents. Glad I got out before I got poisoned by the koolaid. Some of the things I've been hearing about SDAs (my family's affiliation), it only confirms it's all a joke. In 2015, they have voted to not let women be pastors. Over 80% of those voting were male. Religious nuts just don't get it.

If a god or something like it exists, and proof is found, I'll totally go along with it. But contrary to religious beliefs, there just isn't proof, and making assumptions based on dusty, poorly translated books just doesn't appeal to my "non-intelligence".


PS - I should probably note my parents still don't technically know I'm actually atheist. The quote above was not personal.

Ever wondered what Earth would look like with Saturn's rings? Check this out: http://onemansblog.com/rings 
All this talk about New Horizons passing Pluto lately is cool, but let’s not forget that Saturn is the best looking planet in the solar system! Those rings!!! Well, here’s what Earth would look like if she had rings. Super sweet… Related PostsCelestia Free Space Simulation and ExplorationProof That Man Landed on the Moon3 New …

Driving in town is just as nerve-wracking as I remember. Especially when it's hard to see behind.

Nah, the SUV has bad sightlines. Really hard to see what's behind and in the corners.

I have decided to return to school to get my degree in CS. I've decided that working on AI is what I really want out of life. Probably end up doing school for a good while towards that goal. Probably will also be stuck in Colorado for a while too. Oh well, could be worse. Kind of excited to get back into school and kick some ass.

Story
Tagline
Web Developer, Wannabe graphics designer, science geek, Brony
Introduction
I am a web developer and computer enthusiast. I love using Linux and have experience in several programming languages. I usually am pretty easy going and love having a good time with friends.

Some of my favorite things to do are: Programming, learning new things, longboarding, tinkering with computers (both hardware and software), reading (news, blogs, books, etc), spending time with friends and family, and playing video games. (especially Minecraft and Halo.

The name superlink is a fictional character I created at the age of 13. The superlinkx variation has become my primary online alias, and I use it for my identifier across the web.
