THE SPHINX—WINTER

________________________________________________________________________

An infamous quote from Marie Antoinette or someone else.  The point of the quote is how the rich/politicians/Queens/Kings lose touch with the people that pay for their positions.  Jen Psaki and her Margarita quote is priceless.

I hope none of America’s elite have the same fate as Marie.  The revolutionaries cut off her head.  Have several Margaritas.

S.O.S

 

A Boeing 777 wide-body jetliner was lumbering along @ 800km/hr. @ 33,000 ft. when a cocky F-16 fighter jet flashed by at Mach 2.

The F-16 pilot decided to show off. On his state-of-the-art radio that is part of
his state-of-the-art 3D & million-dollar headset, the F-16 youngster told the
777 pilot, “Hey Captain, watch this!”

He promptly went into a barrel roll, followed by a steep, unimaginable, vertical
climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier, as
the F-16 screamed down at impossible G’s before leveling at almost sea level.

The F-16 pilot asked the 777 pilot what he thought of that?

The 777 pilot said, “That was truly impressive, but watch this!”

The 777 chugged along for about 5 minutes at the steady 800km/hour, and
then the 777 pilot came back on and said, “What did you think of that?”

Puzzled, the cocky F-16 pilot asked, “What the heck did you do?”

The 777 pilot chuckled and said, “I stood up, stretched my legs, walked to
the back, used the toilet, then got a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll, and
secured a date for the next 3 nights in a five-star hotel paid for by the company.”

LESSON OF LIFE:
When you are young and foolish, speed and flash may seem like a good thing!
When you get older and smarter, comfort and dullness is not such a bad thing!

It’s called S.O.S.

Slower, Older, and Smarter!

Dedicated to all my friends approaching or enjoying S.O.S.

…”Don’t take life too seriously. No one gets out alive anyway.”…

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Rigel and the Witch Head Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: José Mtanous

Explanation: By starlight this eerie visage shines in the dark, a crooked profile evoking its popular name, the Witch Head Nebula. In fact, this entrancing telescopic portrait gives the impression that the witch has fixed her gaze on Orion’s bright supergiant star Rigel. More formally known as IC 2118, the Witch Head Nebula spans about 50 light-years and is composed of interstellar dust grains reflecting Rigel’s starlight. The blue color of the Witch Head Nebula and of the dust surrounding Rigel is caused not only by Rigel‘s intense blue starlight but because the dust grains scatter blue light more efficiently than red. The same physical process causes Earth’s daytime sky to appear blue, although the scatterers in Earth’s atmosphere are molecules of nitrogen and oxygen. Rigel, the Witch Head Nebula, and gas and dust that surrounds them lie about 800 light-years away.
