Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Saying that the Hubble telescope has a new rival is incorrect. I would prefer them to say that Earth based telescope technology has taken the next step forward... Wrap your mind around this - 95% of the taxes we have today in the US did not exist 100-years ago. How many of those taxes were enacted for a specific purpose that may no longer exist but the taxes still do?... This remains one of my favorite paintings and yes I am going to hell... Prohibited means not allowed but you never hear anyone say that things that are allowed are "hibited". Not sure if "hibited" is even a word. I'll be very gruntled if it is... 12-mile wide "lake" found on Mars. Very cool and could serve as a future base of operations of  a manned base on the planet but I can help but keep thinking of the Doctor Who episode The Waters of Mars...  "What can be added to the happiness of the man who is in health, who is out of debt, and has a clear conscience." Sage words of wisdom from Adam Smith... About time! Deadwood movie finally greenlit by HBO...
