Sorta writer, sorta photographer, sorta gamer, sorta jokester perfecting the art of saying nothing at all in as many words as possible.

I can be snarky. If you can't take it, suck it up, buttercup.

My Aboot Moi page has more detail.

Not my favourite way of describing it, but I'm a Spoonie.

 

33 years ago today, everything changed about space travel when Columbia launched on her first test mission.
They were pretty lucky in that multiple malfunctions of the shuttle vehicle didn’t lead to catastrophic failure, which may have created a level of hubris at NASA that led to the loss of Challenger,and later, Columbia herself… but that flight three and a third decades ago ushered in an era which saw us build a station in space allowing us to have more humans up there at once than ever before in human history, and led to more than 100 commercial technological products from a micropump used to keep heart disease patients alive and better prosthetic limbs, to LED lighting and digital cameras, to heat shielding for NASCAR drivers.
Now I just want my flying car.

Strange…

We just finished watching Masters of Sex last night.

I don’t have a lot of energy to explain it but watching it gives me the strangest feelings.

No, not THOSE feelings, you perv.

It’s a kind of melancholy. A sadness both that we treated people (homosexuals, women, etc.) that way, and that in spite of the progress we’ve made there are still people with similar attitudes today.

The WHO only decided that being gay wasn’t a disorder in 1990. Even Masters and Johnson tried to help people by “curing” their homosexuality up until 1977.

As a species, we’re kind of a big sack of crap.

Reblog if you seriously want the Incredibles to have a sequel.

But could it ever be as perfect?

I was gonna make a pun but then I couldn’t remember what it was.

You mean, like, maybe he’s in over his head?

He seems really grounded.

I wonder if his name is Doug…

Or maybe Barry?
