Gerrit Blank was hit on the hand by a white-hot meteorite on his way to school, it bounced off him, and hit the tarmac leaving a foot long crater. But Blank has a 3 in scar and the pebble sized meteorite. Fate? or wrong place wrong time?
When I was a senior in high school, our astronomy class took a field trip to Dayton to see the air museum. Well a bunch of us got bored, and went back on the bus, and started using the internal and external PA system to make remarks at those walking by. Suffice it to say we were busted by museum officials, and our Teacher Mr. Memmer, made us write an apology to the museum. Suffice it to say, I still got into college.
2 Teens admitted to finding the Taco Bell drive thru speaker frequency and spouted obscenities at customers at a Sedalia, MO Taco Bell. The did is as a prank, and intended no harm. But the city, and Taco Bell did not see it that way. A 15 year old was turned over to Juvenile authorities..
I have called all my sources in the adult entertainment business, and they "know nothing" as Sgt. Schultz would say. Virgin Galactic, the British firm that plans to launch tourists into space, has turned down a million dollar offer to shoot a sex scene for an X-rated movie while the participants are floating in zero gravity. A V-G spokesperson said, the money was offered upfront, but they still turned it down. Flights will begin from the base in Las Cruces NM for $200 Thousand per person.
Racing Trucks is exciting to watch, but when you get a Pit Road Brawl like the one between David Starr, and Todd Bodine, Fans love it. The fight took place at the NASCAR Craftsman Series race in New Hampshire. Roger Hornaday won the race.
A UFO heading towards a spot near the Colorado River; Men in Black; Unmarked Helicopters in formation towing an unmarked object; Area 51 Unmarked Jets at Laughlin, NV, State and Government Agencies have no comment. I-Team 8 has a in-depth investigative report-
Dr. Ed Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut and moonwalker, in a interview today in the UK admitted that Aliens do exist and that the government has covered it up for over six decades. Mitchell in the interview said that "sources at NASA who had contact with aliens said they were "little people that looked strange to us". But one of the most startling quotes from the interview was- "had they been hostile," he warned "we would be been gone by now." The problem is and will be- there is no concrete proof....yet!
It was only a matter of time before an article was written about the future of the use of outer space. Fox News is highlighting an article noting, The Japanese firm First
Advantage and the U.S.-based private spaceflight firm Rocketplane
Global, Inc., announced last week they will host weddings in space for about $2.3 million (240 million yen) apiece. On that note, I hope my daughter isn't reading this post, as I wouldn't want to be the father of the bride paying for this nuptial.
But the article goes on to discuss of course the inevitable "Sex in Space", but once again the article says: For all we know, sex in space has already taken place. But NASA officials aren't talking about that much. Doesn't that leave you with a sense...that sex has taken place. But was it Bill Clinton Sex or Real Sex? The article goes on to discuss the pro's and con's of pregnancy in space.....but the fantasy still exists....a Playboy Pictorial shoot in Space? Those who are the "first" to have "Sex" in space will surely become overnight personalities.
A South Wales resident called the 999 emergency phone system- reporting a bright stationary object over his home, believing it was a UFO. Police responded to the call.....and found the bright stationary object was............the Moon. I guess the UFO craze in UK is getting to everyone.
It's a sad day in history when a planet gets demoted. A couple years ago Pluto was stripped of it's planet staus, and with that went the name Pluto. So today the International Planetary Union has come up with the unique name of Plutoid. The official definintion: Plutoids are celestial bodies in orbit around the sun at a distance greater than that of Neptune that have sufficient mass for their self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that they assume a hydrostatic equilibrium (near-spherical) shape, and that have not cleared the neighborhood around their orbit.
So much for Pluto. But for all you astronomers out there, all you need to do is add the id to Pluto and you are set.
