“All these are good, but I have made my favorites quite obvious by enlarging them… I guess you could say in my case, Size Does Matter!


I added the last one from a previous post to this collection, although it does not fit the subject matter, because I cannot quit laughing at the added comment from a faithful reader of Tolley’s Topics. If you do not appreciate this humor, you are on the wrong site.”

The Editor:  Is the Golden State still turning to copper, LL ?

Si Senor Cat:  It might be turned into tin by now.  If disease doesn’t kill them all the giant rodents are undermining the dams and they will drown in flash floods.

Oh look, Trumps sanctions are working.

The state of Georgia, USA loses enough tax money in foreigners replacing citizens in tech jobs to pay for the entire Legislature’s prostitutes, drug, liquor, and hotel rooms for their  entire session,  It meets for only forty ( 40 ) days a year.  As mentioned previously the ladies of the night even fly in from Las Vegas.

Look who is back.

Here is a partial repeat.

Today’s Accidental Invention…The Ice Cream Cone

Today, ice cream fanatics have a choice between enjoying their treat in a cup or a cone, but that wasn’t always the case. According to the stories, it wasn’t until the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair that someone came up with the idea to spin a wafer-like waffle into the shape of a cone, and this idea was birthed simply out of necessity. When an ice cream vendor at the fair ran out of dishes to serve his ice cream in, the vendor next to him—named Ernest A. Hamwi—came up with the idea to shape his waffles into cones as vessels for the frozen treat.

MyCn 18: The Engraved Hourglass Planetary Nebula

Explanation: Do you see the hourglass shape — or does it see you? If you can picture it, the rings of MyCn 18 trace the outline of an hourglass — although one with an unusual eye in its center. Either way, the sands of time are running out for the central star of this hourglass-shaped planetary nebula. With its nuclear fuel exhausted, this brief, spectacular, closing phase of a Sun-like star’s life occurs as its outer layers are ejected – its core becoming a cooling, fading white dwarf. In 1995, astronomers used the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to make a series of images of planetary nebulae, including the one featured here. Pictured, delicate rings of colorful glowing gas (nitrogen-red, hydrogen-green, and oxygen-blue) outline the tenuous walls of the hourglass. The unprecedented sharpness of the Hubble images has revealed surprising details of the nebula ejection process that are helping to resolve the outstanding mysteries of the complex shapes and symmetries of planetary nebulas like MyCn 18.
