THE SPHINX—-OOPS

Sphinx Main
The Editor:  What does oops mean, LL ?

My Bad Cat:  It means.  A somewhat apology for something almost unimportant,  in  cat-speak in means I’m sorry I got caught.

Here is a good example, do you remember Benghazi, do you remember missing emails, calls, text ?  Here is your Secretary of State’s phone records.

Do you remember the dead Ambassador and his guards ?

Here is another big oops.  The officials don’t know how it got loose, where, or how much-but they do know we are safe.  Watch Al Sharpton and see if he gets sick.

The Editor:  Do these people think we believe them, MBC ?

Stone Age Cat:   They don’t care.  That virus might send us back to the stone age.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Enhanced Color Caloris

Explanation: The sprawling Caloris basin on Mercury is one of the solar system’s largest impact basins, created during the early history of the solar system by the impact of a large asteroid-sized body. The multi-featured, fractured basin spans about 1,500 kilometers in this enhanced color mosaic based on image data from the Mercury-orbiting MESSENGER spacecraft. Mercury’s youngest large impact basin, Caloris was subsequently filled in by lavas that appear orange in the mosaic. Craters made after the flooding have excavated material from beneath the surface lavas. Seen as contrasting blue hues, they likely offer a glimpse of the original basin floor material. Analysis of these craters suggests the thickness of the covering volcanic lava to be 2.5-3.5 kilometers. Orange splotches around the basin’s perimeter are thought to be volcanic vents.
