" The media has been pretty hard on Cosmos. But for an educational program airing after a bawdy cartoon that’s inspired fart joke montages on YouTube, it’s performed fairly decently. Across all platforms, including streaming, the show is racking up 10.9 million viewers, and is likely to have a long rental afterlife (and just karmically, the network that brought us Moment of Truth owed us this one).

Prepare to Have Your Mind Blown by a Balloon and a Minivan

"If you don't already know why a helium balloon tethered to the floor of a minivan has the power to make your jaw drop, you're going to want to see this. Seriously – set aside five minutes of your time, have a seat and watch. You won't regret it."

Google Plus has a cap of 5000 people in Circles total and the above Date and time is when we crossed that threshold. As a result of this policy I cannot Circle more people at this time with out un-Circling some early adopters. My current feelings are that would be unfair to them so please know I appreciate your interest but unfortunately I won't be Circling you until the above policy changes. 
Thank-you for your interest and understanding.

*Curator's Note*
To parents of young children ;
Your discretion is advised as episodes of strong language, Agnosticism, Free Thinking and Science may occur here with no further warning. You may want to use these an a teaching opportunity to discuss social conventions and human reproduction with your off-spring.
