WOW.

I wonder if Dad ever asked Mom "Don't those kids have anything better to do than play on that damned computer all day?"

If I put this together with my friends, when fully zoomed out one more thing would have been added:
an image of a woman with a towel and the caption: Your momma's butt.

Sounds like some clever, but unappetising astronomical molecular gastronomy: "a duo of gas giant and red dwarf, with milky way and quantum foam"

I hope that when they graduate from MIT (or wherever they are bound) that they stick together as a team.

Wow. Clay particles are small. Super groovy but can someone, anyone, please explain to me how 'minecraft world' is as large as Neptune? This for me was the most unfathomable part of this presentation. You can PM me if you like, I know its an irrelevant nit pick of a question.

Landon , If you click on Minecraft World it will give you the measurements - sure is big . Goes to show you - my humor at 14 was more like Ken Peaveys - I did not end up going to Harvard.

Interesting that the scales go almost equal amounts from our human reality - and are equally incomprehensible. One gram of Cesium 137 has more atoms than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the world. Gives you an idea of why it's so messy and poisonous. Had mutations from it in our garden this year. Not so sure about "bright futures" these days. Thanks for the diversion non the less.

That's pretty cool. So do we have enough black locust seeds to fill it?
Speaking of which, we probably need to start making a case for Permies on Mars if this is anything to go by:

Veggies on Mars in 10 years

I blogged about this a while back: any comments welcome!
