So a few minutes ago I'm standing on a chair at the top of the stairs, painting the ceiling.. Stop me if you've heard this one before.

Be the person you need to be. And be the person that others need sometimes, too. Give that a shot.

The Asteroid is coming Feb 15th, 2013

Record Setting Asteroid Flyby - NASA Science

Record Setting Asteroid Flyby - NASA Science

On Feb. 15th an asteroid about half the size of a football field will fly past Earth closer than many man-made satellites. Since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s, astronomers have never seen an object so big come so close to our planet.

I love the “To Sun” part of the above graphic and there’s video in the article link for your non-doomsday amusement.

Note: don’t get cocky and think you’re going to spy it from your backyard — not unless you’re “only the most experienced amateur astronomer.” It’s apparently zipping through the heavens perty darn fast.

Wind gusts up to 31 mph and wind chill around -13°F .. that’s the Chicago I know and hate. I feel winter in my bones.

I feel less pressure when I read magazines backwards.

Hangers Hung Up On the Dresser

Hangers hung up on the dresser
Dinosaurs rung up the socks
Pants flung over the railroad tracks
X-Men hosted by the Whitesox

It’s too late o’clock.

Aliens on Facebook

tcr! · Jan 28, 2013 at 9:33 pm

I’ve broadcast to the world that I’m not a Facebook fan on numerous occasions but I recently found this page that I cannot resist: https://www.facebook.com/aliendvd

Below are some of my more recent faves…

alien motorcycle

alien painting

alien banana

You still don’t understand what you’re dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.

My How Far Data Storage Has Came

Data Storage in DNA Becomes a Reality : 80beats

Data Storage in DNA Becomes a Reality

DNA is the building block of life, but in the future it may also be the standard repository for encyclopedias, music and other digital data. Scientists announced yesterday that they successfully converted 739 kilobytes of hard drive data in genetic code and then retrieved the content with 100 percent accuracy. […]

So what does DNA offer that other data storage methods don’t? One, it can pack data really densely. A single gram of DNA holds more than a million CDs, according to the researchers. Two, DNA lasts a really long time in a range of conditions. It is not nearly as sensitive or fragile as existing data centers. Three, DNA has a reputation for safely storing information: It holds the history of all life on Earth, a tough resumé to top.

This not-old-but-not-today-news is pretty spectacular.
