LOL The Onion. :D
"Records also indicate that in the 1940s, a single determined angel devoted years to a clandestine effort to tunnel beneath a wall of the heavenly city, but was ultimately unable to penetrate heaven’s 12 reinforced foundations of jasper, sapphire, agate, emerald, onyx, ruby, chrysolite, beryl, topaz, turquoise, jacinth, and amethyst described in the Book of Revelation.
Reached for comment, God, who oversees What No Eye Has Seen, Nor Ear Heard, Nor the Heart of Man Conceived, praised the guards’ forceful reaction, remarking that they had done their jobs by neutralizing the escaping angels and securing the afterlife."
THE HEAVENS—Killing four and critically wounding several others, armed guards dispatched from the Right Hand of God reportedly opened fire early Monday morning on a group of angels attempting to escape from heaven. One of the Eternal Kingdom’s...

"I have tended since early boyhood to deal with loss — losing people dear to me — by turning to the nonhuman. When I was sent away to a boarding school as a child of 6, at the outset of the Second World War, numbers became my friends; when I returned to London at 10, the elements and the periodic table became my companions. Times of stress throughout my life have led me to turn, or return, to the physical sciences, a world where there is no life, but also no death.
And now, at this juncture, when death is no longer an abstract concept, but a presence — an all-too-close, not-to-be-denied presence — I am again surrounding myself, as I did when I was a boy, with metals and minerals, little emblems of eternity."
As death nears, I am surrounding myself, as I did when I was a boy, with metals and minerals, little emblems of eternity.

The sobering side of Sarah A Chrisman's life, dressing and living the Neo-Victorian style. :-/

"Are you asking us to leave?"  I repeated.

            "I'm just saying if someone wants to feel you, you need to let them."

            I turned to Gabriel.  "We're leaving." #steampunk

Yikes. "The two researchers, whose earlier work was funded with a grant from DARPA, aren’t the first to examine the wirelessly hackability of cars. In 2010 a team of researchers from the University of Washington and the University of California San Diego showed they could take over a car via a smorgasbord of wireless vulnerabilities. Their attack points included the car’s Bluetooth connection, its OnStar-like cellular radio, a rogue Android app on the driver’s phone synched to the car’s network, and even a malicious audio file burned onto a CD in the car’s stereo."

"Left: Dr. Brian May, Scientific Collaborator. “Pure art and pure science are the pinnacles of human endeavor. You can add love to that if you like. So much of what we do is for money, power, or advancement, but pure work is important because it stands apart from the things that we do for survival and extends the range of human consciousness.” Right: Dr. Amanda Zangari, Post-Doc SWRI, GGI. “Pluto is magnificent and the rest of solar system is incredibly diverse. Everything is worth investigating.”" #plutoflyby

#writing "“Things look promising for the new year. F. $20 for the little tales, and wrote two every month. G. $25 for the “Bells;” L. $100 for the two “Proverb” stories. L. takes all I’ll send; and F. seems satisfied.
So my plan will work well, and I shall make my  $1,000 this year in spite of sickness and worry. Praise the Lord and keep busy, say I. I am pretty well, and keep so busy I haven’t time to be sick…I often think as I go larking round, independent, with more work that I can do, and half-a-dozen publishers asking for tales, of the old times when I went meekly from door to door peddling my first poor little stories, and feeling so rich for $10.
…Keep all the money I send; pay up every bill; get comforts and enjoy yourselves. Let’s be merry while we may, and lay up a bit for a rainy day.”
— Louisa May Alcott, from a letter to her mother, January 1868

This answer made me laugh: "Your question is exactly like asking how your dad can be 50 years old if you are only 5."

Monster Stalker, a Darquepunk Novel
By Elizabeth Watasin

Horror follows vampire Nico to a new world, and an old horror within her responds; kill it before it kills her. Nico jeopardises everything on a lone, redemptive path rescuing victims of the underworld and hunting the nightmare that created her—a monster only Nico knows is there.
A paranormal sci-fi noir. Darquepunk science fiction for the gothic, different, and queer. Time travel, Gen X, gender fluidity. Polyaphroditic. Cyberpunk.
Some sexual content; Mild language; Violence; sexual violence.

"Most people think of space as some distant, irrelevant place — a setting for sci-fi movies and astronauts, but one that has nothing to do with our actual lives. Seen in this light, visiting a new dwarf planet isn't particularly meaningful or exciting.
But this isn't the right way to see space at all. Space is where we live." #pluto  
There hasn't been a mission like this in a generation.
