You know what--they saw a reflection of MOM with their equipment! Geez, you see a photo of yourself and don't recognize it.

Duh.

Quite right. Given the magnitude, it is possible that we have inadvertantly stumbled on the 'elephant's graveyard' of hot air -- the final resting place of all the overheated, over-inflated gaseous emission to rise up from the halls of government since Alexander Hamilton started the practice.

He confused "largest" with "most dense," hence the reference to Congress.

Much as I revere ole Spaw, I am pretty sure he is not the largest object in the universe. He probably would disagree with me, though.

Yup, sounds like IF. Well, I suspect that for a variety of reasons in a few years they're going to be singing a different tune completely.

Amos, are you certain that the object detected wasn't just Spaw? Or perhaps the hallowed halls of our Congress?

My aunt and cousins lived in El Cajon in the same house for many years. The municipal boundary kept changing, so actually, part of that time they lived in La Mesa. (Five changes total, I think she told us).

I had the strangest breakfast on a road trip in Idaho Falls. We sat down at a breakfast place and I ordered what I usually do, French toast. This humongous plate with two three-inch thick chunks of some big fried thing arrived. "Our cook likes to do it a little different," the waitress beamed. I tried a bite, then ate something else. I think they should warn people when the recipe varies that much, know what I mean?

Hey Mom!! They found the biggest object in the Universe!!

"Black holes exhale enormous gas cloud
Plasma cloud located about 300 million light years away
        

Updated: 11:25 a.m. PT April 20, 2007 MSN

A giant cloud of superheated gas 6 million light years wide might be formed by the collective sigh of several supermassive black holes, scientists say.

The plasma cloud, detailed in April 10 issue of Astrophysical Journal, might be the source of mysterious cosmic rays that permeate our universe.

"One of the most exciting aspects of the discovery is the new questions it poses," said study leader Philipp Kronberg of Los Alamos National Laboratories in New Mexico. "For example, what kind of mechanism could create a cloud of such enormous dimensions that does not coincide with any single galaxy or galaxy cluster? Is that same mechanism connected to the mysterious source of ultra high energy cosmic rays that come from beyond our galaxy?""




Izzat KEWL, or WHAT???!!!

Today we wandered over to the desert suburb called El Cajon, where a recently-discovered firend, a lady who plays wicked blues harp, was playing at a restaurant with her tight, well-grooved blues band. They had a sax, a drummer, a bass, two electric guitars, a horn player and of course Diane knocking them dead on the blues harp. It was fine.

Although I hadn't mer her before, she needed someone to cover for vocals so I volunteered to do one number. So I ended up knocking out "Mojo Working" with a completely smooth electric band behind me, and the audience just roared, they had so much fun. BBW was in the audience and said it was perfect. So I am really stoked about that. We rocked!.

Yesterday I did something that was, in its own way, very frightening and even dangerous.

I went to Idaho Falls.

This might not seem like much, a trip of only fifty miles each way, but I went to Idaho Falls. The town where housing developments are walled and the walls extend for (literally) a couple of miles on each side of the street. The town with a "We're the best, so screw you" attitude (or so it seems).

But that's where the quilt show was, and so I went. Later we went to Barnes & Noble and bought some books on our August trip to Alberta and the one we hope to take next year to Ireland.

I did not go to Idaho Falls armed. Just to reassure Mom. I mean, I did have my pocketknife, but that was it.

I've warned you guys about watching out for poachers when I'm away. (That Nigel, he's egging us on, he is).

I went down to the arts fair and met John Hardly today. I think he has visited MOAB on occasion, though I don't know if he has ever posted. I gave us all a glowing review, so who knows! He says he has met Mom's other favorite son, BWL.

totally a different subject ---
it really gets my goat when the "best/most rational/least damaging" response to falsehoods is silence; since that allows the falsehoods to remain unchalleged and thus liable to be taken as "truth".

When librarians go forth upon the Great and Troubled Sea of All Knowledge, to Find Things Out, they run great risks. A single symbol, turned wrong-way to, can undo their bearings and leave them without orientation. One biased and undependable Source can wreak havoc with the entire voyage and leave them adrift in uncharted waters, with no means of communicating with the Lande, and wholly unconnected with Realitye.

Thus, the Goode Rapaire, who on our behalfe has sailed into those Oceanes, and Faced those Dangers, and taken those mighty Riskes, and to them has been Loste.

Let us Praye.

and it goes to show you just how clever Horatio was, to discover VDL in 1473 since he wasn't born until 1758.

On the other hand, he discovered STD in 1775; something that didn't please him or his Bitsy-witsy-woo at all.

Horatio Nelson (known to Lady Hamilton as "Iddy Wicky Woogums") discovered VDL in 1473, claiming it "for England, the King, and my Bitsy-Witsy-Woo [i.e., Lady Hamilton]."

Because he never understood the difference between Magnetic and True North, had flunked astronomical navigation at Sandhurst (he answered the question "What is the name of that big light that comes out at night?" as "George III"), and used a sextant backwards, he would sometimes move not only around in Space but back and forth in Time. His crew, in documents still kept under wraps by the Official Secrets Act, wrote that they also sailed on the canals of Barsoom, saw flying things drop exploding eggs in the Sandwich Islands, were silent upon a peak in Darien, saw slimy things crawl with legs upon a slimy sea, and nearly sank in tumult in a lifeless ocean. They also "crossed the T" of the Flying Dutchman and saw three kids sailing around in a wooden shoe. (Though these documents are very, very secret, librarians know How To Find Things Out.)
