I love you guys,
Researchers have analyzed carbon-rich meteorites (carbonaceous chondrites) and found amino acids, which are used to make proteins. Proteins are among the most important molecules in life, used to make structures like hair and skin, and to speed up or regulate chemical reactions. They have also found components used to make DNA, the molecule that carries the instructions for how to build and regulate a living organism, as well as other biologically important molecules like nitrogen heterocycles, sugar-related organic compounds, and compounds found in modern metabolism.
Picture here is the equipment used by NASA Goddard's Astrobiology Analytical Lab to analyze very small samples. On the right is the nanoelectrospray emitter, which gives sample molecules an electric charge and transfers them to the inlet of the mass spectrometer (left), which identifies the molecules by their mass.
This technology and the laboratory techniques that the Goddard lab develops to apply it to analyze meteorites will be valuable for future sample-return missions since the amount of sample likely will be limited.

Kinda scary - and sad - when society moves toward this much surveillance. It can make high-resolution 270-degree scans of the neighborhood, shopping center or other area it patrols, and can scan up to 90,000 license plates per hour....
I suppose we have school shootings, kidnappings and other crime to thank for this.
SO THANKS, ALL YOU GEEK HATERS OUT THERE, FOR BEING SO SPITEFUL.
And waste of taxes? Whose tax money will they spend on medical bills for the victims of street racing this year? Can YOU afford their bills? And insurance, property damage, lawsuits (Oh yes, don't think those warehouse owners won't sue you for damaging things). The list goes on.
I guess what this comes down to is RESPECT. ;).
"Everything will be monitored"
Well, political prank-master Mark Dice is at it again, this time at a California college....

10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
16 Rejoice evermore.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
19 Quench not the Spirit.
20 Despise not prophesyings.
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
25 Brethren, pray for us.
26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen."
If you are looking for perfection, look elsewhere. If you want a friend with a beautiful past, you have not found him. If your heart yearns for someone who will treat you like family when you are a friend, and like a best friend when you are family and help you through your problems at 2am if needs be, you have found me.
I am a hard working computer geek with so many mistakes in my past I could tell you stories for days, both good and bad.
I do not like to wear colorful clothes. In fact I prefer worn(ish) black clothes and dislike large groups of people I don't know. ;)
The biggest reason I don't like people in general? :D
Because while most people are contented with going about their business and trying to enjoy themselves, there are some people whose life goal is to make as many people as miserable as possible and I annoy the hell out of them when I tarnish their sacred gloominess with my black smear smiling from whatever corner of their bubble I've chosen to inhabit. :D
I still get out though and just because I'm an anti-social bat who believes in God, does not mean I am perfect. I don't judge people because the likelihood that I have made the same mistakes is like the likelihood that something WORSE will happen eventually. The most I can say is that I pray you get through it better than I did and don't get dead, sad or screwed in the process. Smile with every passing moment no matter the pain.
So be of good cheer, let nothing bring you to a low place, no matter what low you get yourself into, or what low you will go to for your friends, just to pull them back up.
That's what life's meaning is.
"God's blessings upon us all,
as our world decends into
