HEAD SCRATCHERS

  • The “Information Age” needs to explain how we can be living in the “Post-Modern” era. The last I looked, I’m not “Post- ” anything.
  • Other officials were unimpressed by the mayor’s statement that crack is only something he did while drunk. (NPR report November 6, 2013 regarding Toronto, Canada Mayor Rob Ford)
  • Astronomers using NASA data have calculated for the first time that in our galaxy alone, there are at least 8.8 billion stars with Earth-size planets in the habitable temperature zone.* Wow! Heaven is gonna be one interesting place!
  • For a Veteran’s Day sale, Fry’s Electronics has marked down the Airspeed Bagged Pet Vacuum. This must be for the Canine Division.
  • Dark matter and dark energy can be measured, even though nobody knows what they are. This one really boggles my mind!
