Each Point Of Light In The Picture Is A Galaxy… A Whole Galaxy!!

We are as atoms on a grain of sand within our own galaxy… Is the entity that is worshiped as God on this planet presumed to be the architect of all that shows in the Hubble Deep Field Exposure and more? Are we to presume that the architect of all that pays attention to and directs each of our lives? If So… Then I think we little beings may have seriously overeached.

The Ultra Deep Field obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope is the deepest view into the sky by humankind to date. This image combines 800 frames with a total exposure time of 1 million seconds. The 10.000 galaxies that are visible have distances out to times where the universe was just 800 million years old, one seventeenth of its current age.

Cheney’s Office Damaged in Fire… Heh.. Heh.. No Comment… I Don’t Want To Be Declared An Enemy Combatant And Guantanamo’ed.

Thick smoke billowed from a fire Wednesday in Vice President Dick Cheney’s suite of offices in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the White House.Cheney’s office, known for its historical furnishings and ornate decorations, was damaged by smoke and water from fire hoses, officials said. There was concern about water damage to the floor, made of mahogany, white maple and cherry and considered to be very delicate.

The adjacent office of the vice president’s political director, Amy Whitelaw, was heavily damaged by fire, said Cheney spokeswoman Lea Anne McBride.

The vice president was not in the building at the time; he was in the West Wing of the White House with President Bush.

Andy Borowitz  on Huffington Post has a little something to add though: 

Attempting to Destroy CIA Tapes, Cheney Burns Down White House

The White House, one of the most historic structures in the nation’s capital, burnt to the ground today after Vice President Dick Cheney attempted to incinerate a cache of CIA interrogation tapes in his office.

According to White House aides, the blaze started shortly after twelve noon, minutes after Mr. Cheney slipped out of a cabinet meeting, saying that he had to “hit the head.”

But rather than using the bathroom as he had stated, the vice president instead went to his office and put a blowtorch to a pile of CIA interrogation tapes which the White House had feared might be subpoenaed in the near future.

“I started burning those things and boom, they went up like a rocket,” an apologetic Mr. Cheney later told reporters.

The accidental blaze quickly spread from the videotapes to a nearby stack of transcripts of phone conversations involving Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and singer Barbra Streisand that Mr. Cheney had obtained via a warrantless wiretap.

“Once those transcripts caught on fire, I knew the building was a goner,” Mr. Cheney said. “There were literally thousands and thousands of pages of that stuff.”

Speaking in front of the charred remains of the historic building, administration spokesperson Dana Perino said that the White House might have been saved had it not been for an unfortunate bureaucratic mix-up: “Instead of calling the fire department, President Bush called FEMA.”

The Same Guy Invented Leaded Gasoline AND CFC’s… Ain’t Karma Something?

In 1921, after a long string of inadequate solutions, a clever but chronically catastrophic chemist named Thomas Midgley developed a fuel additive which eliminated ping problems while increasing fuel efficiency. Though the chemical agent eventually gained worldwide acceptance, it left a rash of psychosis, a trail of bodies, an epidemic of crime, and an irreparably damaged environment in its wake.

thomas Midgley Mr. Midgley, the father of leaded gasoline continued his distinguished career by inventing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), the refrigerants and aerosol propellants which famously destroyed a considerable section of the Earth’s ozone layer before they were banned. Along the way Midgley received an awesome array of awards for his contributions to chemistry, many of which were later regretted upon discovering the damage done by his innovations. He did not survive to witness the disassembly of his successes, however. After becoming impaired by a polio infection, Midgley devised a machine with motorized pulleys to assist him in rising from bed and turning over. One day in 1944, as his automatic contraption sprang into action, he was ensnared in the cords and strangled to death.

Some historians have argued that Midgley’s tetra-ethyl lead was a necessary evil; one which hastened the progress of efficient engines, thereby advancing the economy and contributing to victory in World War II. It is worth noting, however, that in the early years of Ethyl’s availability, basic refinery advances boosted the base octane of fuel by 20-30 points, whereas Ethyl additive only boosted it by about nine points. In retrospect, Ethyl’s octane improvements were somewhat overstated, and the product owed most of its success to crafty marketing, misleading research, and chronic government incompetence. Whatever Ethyl’s benefits, it saturated the planet with an insidious poison, and the true magnitude of its past, present, and future harm are yet to be known.

Black-Nosed Buddha

A nun who was searching for enlightenment made a statue of Buddha and covered it with gold leaf. Wherever she went she carried this golden Buddha with her.

Years passed and, still carrying her Buddha, the nun came to live in a small temple in a country where there were many Buddhas, each one with its own particular shrine.

The nun wished to burn incense before her golden Buddha. Not liking the idea of the perfume straying to others, she devised a funnel through which the smoke would ascend only to her statue. This blackened the nose of the golden Buddha, making it especially ugly.


Real Courtroom Testimonies… And We Pay For These Lawyers-

Leopard Update

So I’m posting from Mac OS X Leopard for a couple of days now… So far… So good.

I’m pleasantly surprised at how easy the switch was… Leopard went in and grabbed everything including my applications and settings and they all seem to work okay with the exception of Google Earth… And I just need to download an update. Even PhotoShop works. Norton AntiVirus and all of the third party applications I had seem to work too.

CoverFlow in the folders is cool… But I found out that it works too good! CoverFlow will even show images in supposedly “secret” folders (porn) that previously were well stashed… Just go to “All Images” in the “Search For” pane and Leopard will bring up every picture on the computer! … Same for “All Movies”… Fair Warning! Get yourself a spare external drive that you can keep locked away!

We had fun with “Screen Sharing” … It’s so easy to swap computers with someone! I ask for permission to share screens from a chat window… And if accepted… I instantly get your screen on my computer… I am literally sitting in your seat! I can do anything you can do. No more 2 hour phone calls trying to figure out what the heck someone is trying to describe is happening to their machine! I can also only give viewing rights so that I can show someone exactly how to do something… They literally see me do it. I can even do a theater type thing where I can put my screen on more than one computer anywhere and run through a Powerpoint or anything I want them to see. Seriously Impressive, Mr. Jobs!

And before anyone gets antsy about security… I un-check one box and my machine is locked back down. And there’s a flashing red icon that lets me know that my screen is being shared. It’s also easy to set up a list of people who are allowed to request screen sharing. It’s a buddy list that I can block and lock from.

So Far … So Good… I like it.

Home Remedies That Produce A State of Euphoria

12/06/2007: Rachel from Baldwin, WI writes: “re: euphoria remedies — I have found that after eating pink salmon, followed by green veggies and then 1/2 cup of blueberries, I get extremely happy, almost giddy. The first time it happened, I didn’t realize that it was from what I ate and forgot about it. Then on another day, I ate the same thing and it happened again; and found that it repeatedly works for me. I don’t know if it would work for everyone, but for me it is a depression cure!”

11/06/2007: Sharon from Boston, MA writes, “I just discovered that ACV, baking soda, and cayenne produces an almost instantaneous state of euphoria! I have been taking acv for years, more recently acv and baking soda, but never with the cayenne. I always felt very energized from acv, but didn’t feel like it was adjusting my brain chemistry. This remedy does. This is going to sound strange, but it makes me feel closer to God. I don’t know how else to explain the sensation.

This is what I do:
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar,
1/8th teaspoon of baking soda and
5 shakes of cayenne pepper
in a glass of hot water.

Be careful not to stand too close to the glass after adding the cayenne or you will inhale it, especially once those acv and baking soda bubbles get activated. Sip slowly, stirring the cayenne every so often. When the drink cools down, add more hot water. Drink on an empty stomach, if possible. I usually take it in the late afternoon, when I am feeling sleepy.

I hope others will try it to and let me know if they are experiencing the same results. It might also be a very effective PMS remedy, I don’t know. Will send an update later on in the month!”

10/18/2007: Lisa from Newton, MA writes: “Hi, I started to put a bit of Cayenne pepper, along with some lemon juice into my morning tea, as an immune booster, but, I must say, I have found that I have been in an extremely energetic and jovial mood. I had not noticed this until yesterday, my 3rd day doing this regimen—just thought I would share.”
9/23/2007: Michelle from Winfield, Kansas, USA writes: “I began using acv a few weeks ago at a small dose of 1 tsp. per day. After two weeks I noticed I was sleeping better and that my dreams were better. Rather than dark and heavy, my dreams were becoming more and more light-hearted. I actually woke myself up laughing the night before. I don’t know if I can attribute this to acv, but I suppose it’s possible…”

Color Psychology…Do different colors affect your mood?

While blue is one of the most popular colors it is one of the least appetizing. Blue food is rare in nature. Food researchers say that when humans searched for food, they learned to avoid toxic or spoiled objects, which were often blue, black, or purple. When food dyed blue is served to study subjects, they lose appetite.

Green, brown, and red are the most popular food colors. Red is often used in restaurant decorating schemes because it is an appetite stimulant.
