First of all, let me apologize for taking a couple days off from blogging. I have had a flurry of projects this week, including one that is huge and last minute for the January issue of the magazine. Now that I’ve caught my breath on those special things, back to the norm . . .
Don't worry, Dave. The other day, one of the Fox blonds said she was 'reading up' on falling space junk, so we are in good hands. She didn't share what she had learned during her studies, probably because too few of us could comprehend it, but don't be shocked if a comprehensive theory of dark energy emerges soon.
Don't work yourself into a heart attack. Solar filters and telescopes aren't exactly the hottest selling item on the Internet. I just can't see millions of people leaving their football game viewing to go watch the sunspots. CNN did just do a story on the Southern Lights. They showed a very colorful photo taken from the Space Station. But hey, it is a slow Saturday news night. CNN did explain how the auroras form. They are targeting the intellectual crowd. Maybe the guy who flew his small plane into the Ferris wheel down in Australia was looking for sunspots. How did no one get killed in that?
You mean that blond Fox reporter that she had been reading up on falling space junck. Wasn't that an off the cuff remark in a conversation about that school bus sized peace of space junck that just fell out of the sky. I saw that. In context it wasn't as dumb as you made it out to be.
Our society is crumbling while we go to football games. Maybe we should be looking at the sun and learning something instead of mindless games. This is a great time to look and learn about the Sun. There are lots of cause, on the Sun, and effect's here on earth that can be enjoyed for longer than a couple of hours on Sunday.
