I have a stress test scheduled for the near future. I have never taken a stress test.

Will they slap me around? Deprive me of sleep by shining bright lights into my eyes? Contort my body into painful positions? Waterboard me? Make me breathe toxic fumes from car exhausts? Let roaches and ticks crawl on me?

Oh well…that is no big deal….people around the world survive these little traumatic events every day.

My mentor suggested that…. I will most likely….. ONLY…. be required to listen to this little speech.

The Editor:   Roaches make my skin crawl, what about you, LL ?

Creepy Cat:   I don’t like them.  Guess who this guy’s boss was, ole Janet Napolatino.  She was one of Obama’s roaches,  working as head of Homeland Security, before becoming head of California’s education system.

Here is a coming trend.  ( from contented cockroaches )

Saturn’s Iapetus: Painted Moon

Explanation: What has happened to Saturn’s moon Iapetus? Vast sections of this strange world are dark as coal, while others are as bright as ice. The composition of the dark material is unknown, but infrared spectra indicate that it possibly contains some dark form of carbon. Iapetus also has an unusual equatorial ridge that makes it appear like a walnut. To help better understand this seemingly painted moon, NASA directed the robotic Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn to swoop within 2,000 kilometers in 2007. Pictured here, from about 75,000 kilometers out, Cassini’s trajectory allowed unprecedented imaging of the hemisphere of Iapetus that is always trailing. A huge impact crater seen in the south spans a tremendous 450 kilometers and appears superposed on an older crater of similar size. The dark material is seen increasingly coating the easternmost part of Iapetus, darkening craters and highlands alike. Close inspection indicates that the dark coating typically faces the moon’s equator and is less than a meter thick. A leading hypothesis is that the dark material is mostly dirt leftover when relatively warm but dirty ice sublimates. An initial coating of dark material may have been effectively painted on by the accretion of meteor-liberated debris from other moons.
