Not usually a militant atheist, but on occasion the militant types have a point: TIME cover story statement: "funny how you don’t see organized groups of secular humanists giving out hot meals." If you can't see how this is discriminatory, try substituting this statement: "funny how you don’t see organized groups of Jews giving out hot meals". See the point?

"This animation shows the geocentric phase, libration, position angle of the axis, and apparent diameter of the Moon throughout the year 2011, at hourly intervals."

I knew that the moon wobbled, and we don't always see exactly the same thing, but for some reason, this is mind blowing. Much of the variation is attributable to the elliptical orbit and orbital inclination.

Canada is phasing out the one-cent-piece, aka the penny this year. Interestingly, it used to be the two-cent coin that was called the penny. When they phased it out, people started calling the one-cent coin the penny. Here I've rolled up all the pennies I still own... enough for a latte at Starbucks. I wonder if they'll take them...

We have some of the funniest politics ever happening this week in Soviet Canuckistan. This week, the prime minister accused the opposition party of voting against the war on Hitler. The party in question didn't exist until 1961. #harperhistory
