The Great Barrier Reef from a sea turtle's POV. As tranquil and scenic as Finding Nemo but for real.

Just a normal commute to work. (Nope) The Blackhawk parade guaranteed that trains were packed to the gills w/ red jerseys, jean cut-offs and flip-flops. Nice fan girl made room for me to sit, though. A rowdy, friendly crowd - dats Chicago fur ya.

Here's just some visual confirmation of what I learned last week, that Leonard Nimoy did, indeed, derive his Vulcan peace sign from a Jewish gesture of priestly blessing.

Showed this pic to a number of Yankees here at The Vantage and many folks at church. Got lots of laughs. Plus a few "huh?"s. Thanks for the joke.

The greatest Halloween prank of all time, Orson Welles' "The War of the Worlds" radio broadcast, started as a doomed, "very dull" drama that became genius almost purely by accident. Actually, Welles was mostly absent from the production but somehow every creative choice (mostly by others, some by him at the last minute) unintentionally led to a Martian invasion that panicked a nation and made media history.
Orson Welles and his colleagues scrambled to pull together the show; they ended up writing pop culture history

I listened to it and we wondered what was happening. It was a scary show, but we didn't find out, that day, that people panicked.

By the way, my Dad built a kit radio before the war, when WBAP came on the air. It was the first radio receiver in Decatur.
