Grade school children were asked the question, “Why did your mom marry your dad?”
These are some responses:
1. She got too old to do anything else with him.
2. My grandma says that mom didn’t have her thinking cap on.
3. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world, and Mom eats a lot!
The Editor: Those are a variety of subjects, LL.
A Little Won’t Hurt You Cat: They sure are, here is the drone part.
Here is the radiation part. Our government must still think that there is no internet so we can research how much they are poisoning us. There has never been a radiation leak, screw up, a thousand bombs exploded in Utah and Nevada, not to mention Three Mile Island, that has harmed an American. A little bit won’t hurt you. The federal government should be moved to a Super Fund Toxic Nuclear clean up site. Move them to Hanford, Washington.
This is a further update. The officials say dirt and gravel will contain the radiation. In the meantime the poison will be cleaned up by 2060, that 42 years from now.
Here is the story of two multi-millionaires. One prepared for the future one didn’t. One wants more water, if it is for private non-commercial use, who cares ?
Explanation: It’s easy to get lost following intricate filaments in this detailed image of faint supernova remnant Simeis 147. Also cataloged as Sharpless 2-240 it goes by the popular nickname, the Spaghetti Nebula. Seen toward the boundary of the constellations Taurus and Auriga, it covers nearly 3 degrees or 6 full moons on the sky. That’s about 150 light-years at the stellar debris cloud’s estimated distance of 3,000 light-years. This composite includes image data taken through narrow-band filters, enhancing the reddish emission from ionized hydrogen atoms to trace the shocked, glowing gas. The supernova remnant has an estimated age of about 40,000 years, meaning light from the massive stellar explosion first reached Earth 40,000 years ago. But the expanding remnant is not the only aftermath. The cosmic catastrophe also left behind a spinning neutron star or pulsar, all that remains of the original star’s core.
