"Completing a three-day journey from Earth, an Orbital Sciences Corp. Cygnus spacecraft reached the International Space Station this week, resupplying the outpost with critical provisions, experiments and other needed cargo. The 16.8-foot-long, 10-foot diameter Cygnus supply ship was grappled by the space station's robotic arm at 1036 GMT (6:36 a.m. EDT) Wednesday at the end of a laser-guided final approach from underneath the 450-ton research complex. It delivered more than 3,000 pounds of cargo to the space station." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

"HAVE a look at a 1977 grade school science textbook. Each page features distinctly seventies children in distinctly seventies environments. A beautiful thing to behold. Today’s textbook illustrations are much more professional, polished and detailed than they used to be. Many of you may remember that most 70s textbooks were low on informative illustrations and graphics, but chock full of pictures featuring a melting pot of children doing God-knows-what. Today’s science schoolbooks are brimming with amazing pictures and lush illustrations; whereas, my old science book had pictures of kids blowing bubbles or watering plants." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

So popular, so successful, so few episodes, so far apart. So it is with everything I liked from Auntie of late. Still, at least we have a nation of gourmet chefs, shark experts and WWII historians. - Slippy: Potato Croquette

My wife has been waiting to hear whether there's budget to turn her year's secondment into a permanent position - wanted by her current manager and, of course, us - as otherwise she'll need to start job hunting near the year's end as her old job which she would otherwise go back to has switched to a shift pattern and neither she nor I want her to...
Meanwhile, my wife was working with another woman in her office who recently took a couple of weeks holiday. Prior to the holiday she was supposed to give my wife some instructions on running certain elements of her job for cover but because this woman was taken ill for a fortnight before the holiday this didn't happen. Nevertheless, my wife battled on, made a few mistakes, but generally worked things out and picked up the slack and other workers from other departments who have to liaise with where my wife now works have remarked that things by-and-large are probably working more smoothly now and departmental cooperation has improved. - Mark H
This woman was supposed to return to work from her holiday yesterday but didn't show up and didn't call in. Today they discovered her dead in her home. - Mark H
I feel a little bit guilty that after the initial "damn!" reaction my next thought was "well, that should hopefully free up that budget." I'm a bad person. - Mark H

"In the 1970s arcade games were super. Most kids knew a friend of a friend who owned an actual stand-up video game in a big metal box. Others (let’s call them spoilt cousin Danny) had Intellivision. Others had an Atari, the most fabulous of all the home gaming machines. Children wanted one. But which one would mum and dad buy. Which one would your big brother crave? The game makers knew: the one that would get your laid. Sex, it seems, can sell anything." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

It looks like the Daily Mail may have been trying to set up a group to stir up dissent. Why report the news when you can create it? - Mark H from Bookmarklet
Ooops. Any comments from the newspapers implied? - Eivind
Not that I've seen. Probably, though, and probably containing swear words. - Mark H

Sen. Brandon Smith has important things to say about climate change, Mars - http://fatlip.leoweekly.com/2014...
"Brandon Smith: 'As you (Energy & Environment Cabinet official) sit there in your chair with your data, we sit up here in ours with our data and our constituents and stuff behind us. I don’t want to get into the debate about climate change, but I will simply point out that I think in academia we all agree that the temperature on Mars is exactly as it is here. Nobody will dispute that. Yet there are no coal mines on Mars. There are no factories on Mars that I’m aware of.'" - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"First of all, I did not make up that quote, it’s quite real. Secondly, while the average temperature on Earth is roughly 58 degrees Fahrenheit, the average temperature on Mars is approximately -80 degrees Fahrenheit. In Sen. Smith’s defense, he’s only off by about 138 degrees or so, which happens sometimes." - Mark H

"My brother Sander and I both share a love for concept cars. Earlier this week he showed me this amazing 1980 Citroën Karin, which I’d never seen before. It’s totally Blade Runner meets French car styling. It would be great if this sort of design style were translated to a furniture collection?" - Mark H from Bookmarklet

"In 1964, Disney began ‘quietly’ purchasing what would total to 27,000 acres of land in Orlando, Florida. By quietly, I mean Walt used his multiple lesser-known shell companies to buy up the land at very low prices from unknowing landowners that would eventually become part of the Disney prototype district." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"Next, he wanted independence; unprecedented quasi-government control over the area. He succeeded and in 1967, convinced the State of Florida Legislature to sign over municipal jurisdiction over the land Disney had acquired, which he named “The Reedy Creek Improvement District”, after a natural waterway that crossed through it. This essentially meant Disney could do almost whatever he... more... - Mark H

A View of the Deepest Future
"To survive, Life in our Local Group needs to emigrate to the Virgo Super-Cluster. Although our Milky Way is heading towards Virgo at ~200 km/s, cosmic acceleration, from Dark Energy, is presently pushing us away from Virgo at ~1,000 km/s. Thus we need to launch towards Virgo faster than the Dark Energy pushing us away. Yet the reward is 10 trillion trillion years of Habitable planetary environments, which may well be worth intergalactic migration." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"In theory a tight white-dwarf/planet pair can be flung out of the Galactic Core at ~0.05c, which would mean a 2 billion year journey across every 100 million light-years. A white-dwarf habitable zone is good for 8 billion years or so, enough to cross ~400 million light-years. It’d be a ‘starship’ in truth on the Grandest Scale. Perhaps other Intelligences have begun their preparations... more... - Mark H

Looked up this Spivey author. While what he writes may be true, his academic credentials are less than stellar. - Joe
He is an Electronics Design Engineer at Bangor. No PhD from what I see, but I could be wrong about that. Dabbles in intergalactic space travel theory after work? - Joe
