A Whale Tale

Image result for pic of three fat women

My husband  was at a bar the other night and overheard three very hefty women talking.

Their accent appeared to be Scottish, so he approached and asked, “Hello, are you three lassies from Scotland?”

One of them angrily screeched, “It’s Wales, Wales you bloody idiot!”

So he apologized and replied, “I am so sorry.  Are you three whales from Scotland?”

He gets out of the hospital tomorrow.

I Had It All !

Homeless

I talked to a homeless man this morning and asked him how he ended up this way.  

.

He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all. I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had TV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library. I was working on my MBA on-line. I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage.”

.

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened? Drugs? Alcohol? Divorce?”

.

“Oh no, nothing like that,” he said. “No, no…. I was paroled.

LDN 1622: Dark Nebula in Orion
Image Credit & Copyright: Min Xie

Explanation: The silhouette of an intriguing dark nebula inhabits this cosmic scene. Lynds’ Dark Nebula (LDN) 1622 appears against a faint background of glowing hydrogen gas only visible in long telescopic exposures of the region. In contrast, the brighter reflection nebula vdB 62 is more easily seen, just above and right of center. LDN 1622 lies near the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy, close on the sky to Barnard’s Loop, a large cloud surrounding the rich complex of emission nebulae found in the Belt and Sword of Orion. With swept-back outlines, the obscuring dust of LDN 1622 is thought to lie at a similar distance, perhaps 1,500 light-years away. At that distance, this 1 degree wide field of view would span about 30 light-years. Young stars do lie hidden within the dark expanse and have been revealed in Spitzer Space telescope infrared images. Still, the foreboding visual appearance of LDN 1622 inspires its popular name, the Boogeyman Nebula.
