I thought about this today. The earth is a sphere, right? (Actually it’s a close to an oblate spheroid, it bulges at the equator as we all do to an extent. Possibly more after this Thursday.) Now in space, where earth is, there is no ‘up’ or ‘down.’ Or rather, every direction is ‘up’ and ‘down.’
This means that unless you’re standing in a building, you’re on top of the world. What about mountains or valleys? Who cares; the earth is remarkably smooth – smother than a billiard ball, even with Mount Everest. The neat thing is that everyone can be, in fact, everyone is, on top of the world.
Keith Olberman on Prop 8
Worth watching no matter what your views are:
Did you see the Republicans’ Boob Bait for the Bubba Bunch, Sarah Palin, chortling and enjoying a frolicsome time in front of turkeys being slaughtered? I don’t want this to be all YouTube-y but if you’re feeling a lack of horror in your life, look at this vision of the person lots and lots of Republicans wanted to be one ageing doddering heartbeat away from the Presidency. If this was their idea of a good idea, why would we trust them to run a village, let alone a country?
She’s such a moron. But her husband’s cute. <blush> Oh, and note to Brits; do you see the chav-tastic Burberry check scarf on her? Or how even when she’s not campaigning she continuously repeats vapid slogans and stupidity.
Yes, That’s a New Pair of Eyes Up There
And we must say two goodbyes, the first to our big ole hunk, Adam Baldwin. He seems to be quite upset about it, but all good things must come to an end. I’ll always have a soft spot for him but I can get a fix once a week with Chuck so it’s all good.
Can you guess who the new gent is? Answers should be sent to me, written on a post card attached to a 2008 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé with the teak tonneau cover, in black over tan leather interior. The winning entrant will get a quick ride in my new car.
Uma Outra Renovação – Another Renovation
Our second good-bye is to boyishly handsome Thiago Serpa, but man-watchers need never despair; our mini-obsession continues, and continues with Brazilians. This time it’s actor and model Rafael Calomeni. Enjoy.
(Can’t wait to see where this will end, can you?)
