Is it Friday yet? by 10 AM Monday, I'm done!
But as done as I am, the day isn't done with me, so... Oh well!
Now, mind you, I have an excuse. Yesterday, a skink got onto our catio. Annnd... from there, into my house b/c of course. And my cats reacted as expected. Dahlia play-hunted, tried to eat it, and discovered skinks taste bad. Dixie looked around wondering where the skink went. I did try to save it, but alas, no luck. it was a tiny little one, and before I realized Dahlia had spit out a skink and not a millipede... SQUISH.
Ever hear that space tastes of raspberries? Yep. In 2009, a space cloud showed up on the chemistry doodads ---- assume we can do this and trust me, please, that's a whole college course ----- as having ethyl formate. It gives raspberries their taste, and can smell like rum. So soak some raspberries in rum, and you're in a space cloud! :-) (No joke) You can, FYI, make a cocktail called The Milky Way: two shots of rum, 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of crushed raspberries (or just juice a cup of raspberries), over a LOT of ice. You're welcome.
Another region was shown to have a lot of.... ethanol. Yeah. Booze. Space makes booze. Alas, it makes booze with hydrogen cyanide. Don't drink it. Please.
If you are in a spacesuit and it rips? You don't die instantly. You have a couple minutes. It won't do you any good,, of course, b/c within 10 seconds you're unconscious... But the change in pressure will eventually cause your death, so just be glad you're unaware of it. Sci-fi movies don't get that right very often.
Astronomic theory posits... WHITE holes. We've never found one, since nobody saw one, but theoretically, all the light and matter comes out, no limits, although one wonders how there's so little gravity that everything escapes like that. I can't do math like that. Not even close!
Weirdly, many stars like our sun have a sibling star. Guess we got lucky our sun didn't have a cranky baby brother?
And if you despair of weight loss, the sun ---- ours ---- loses over 2 billion pounds every *second* as the fusion process causes particles to go scattering away on the solar wind. Think of the sun as "shedding". And I can' tlose a single pound in a month. ACK.
So... space may smell interesting, but it won't taste good. OK, I'm good with that.
Merry Monday! I'm off to the heating pad!
Well, that summed up how I feel.***Reports are being released claiming Covid-19 came from a Chinese lab. This is shady stuff. Samples of the virus being studied in China in a lab may have pre-existed the US knowledge of the disease, but that's not a shocker. So.... How did the virus occur? Odds are that this little effer has just done what many bugs before it have done: Gotten into humans and...
Hi All, I know you have bodyaches and muscle pain as fellow fibro sufferers. Are you able to do your house cleaning? Does anyone help you? Do you hire a house cleaner?Just curious, since I'm having trouble doing mine. In addition to fibro, I have neck/back issues. May need to hire someone, but with Covid still raging, I'm skittish about having a stranger in my house...
