    This is the flag for planet Earth as proposed by Beckmans College of Design graduate Oskar Pernefeldt. Oskar used the five basic principles of good flag design (apparently there are five basic principles of good flag design) to come up with the proposal. I dunno, it looks lik... / Continue →

    This is a video animation created by NASA showing a view of the moon and earth from the side of the moon not visible from earth (aka the dark side). I remember the first time I saw the dark side of the moon. It was in a dream. There was nothing there but a run-down strip clu... / Continue →

    To get people excited about outerspace, this is a small series of travel posters designed by NASA, advertising nearby (nearby being relative) earth-like planets that have the potential for liquid water on their surfaces. Obviously, I would vacation on any one of these, even wi... / Continue →

    This is a video of Galactic Empire forces taking over the Frankfurt Airport in Germany. No word if Germany forged an alliance with the Empire or if the airport was taken by force. I suspect the worse. "Which is?" Germany has always been a secret part of the Galactic Empire.... / Continue →

    Scientists analyzing the xenon gas in quartz crystals found in South Africa and Australia have determined the earth may be as much as 60-million years older than previously thought. Wow, that...is a lot of missed birthdays. Fingers crossed it doesn't demand make-up presents. ... / Continue →

    This is a rendering depicting what it would look like if all 7.159-billion humans alive on earth today were piled into the Grand Canyon. It would suck to be on the bottom of that pile. Or anywhere in it, actually. Because I am NOT showing up for everybody piled in the Grand ... / Continue →

    First there was the real video of Jean-Claude Van Damme doing his famous leg splits between two Volvo trucks driving in reverse, then there was the CG video of Chuck Norris doing the splits between two jets. And here is another CG video of Van Damme answering back with a leg s... / Continue →

    In rare good news, astrobiologists have determined the earth should be habitable for at least another 1.75-billion years. For reference, that's 1.75-billion years minus 50 years more than I care about. The research was led by Andrew Rushby, from UEA's school of Environmenta... / Continue →

    This is the 4.4-billion year old zircon crystal found in Western Australia. Researchers believe it to be the oldest known piece of earth. How do you explain that, young earth creationists? "Radioactive dating doesn't work." Tell me about it, my last date had laser vision an... / Continue →

    These are several shots of Middle Earth as viewed from space taken from The Middle Earth Digital Elevation Project. What the hell is a Middle Earth Digital Elevation Project? It's, um, a project about Middle Earth's Digital Elevation. Maybe I should just copy/paste a quote. ... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE, but you'll probably still try to wipe earth off your monitor like a speck of dust. This is a picture of earth as seen by the Mars Rover Curiosity. In case you've been living in a cave with bears for the past year or the name didn't give it away, the... / Continue →

    This is a 2-hour 45-minute Youtube video (watch the whole thing and it'll almost be time to leave for the day!) of the Bill Nye/Ken Ham debate on evolution vs young earth creation. Who won? Nobody -- nobody won. Zero opinions were changed, just as I expected. You have to in... / Continue →

    This is an informative video about the largest creatures to ever live on earth, by type (ie. largest arthropod, largest land mammal -- both seen above, largest flying creature, etc.). Did you know the largest arthropod was an 2.5 meter (8.5-foot) millipede-looking beast that w... / Continue →

    Watch your step, Florida. In case you were wondering, my Spirit Quest was a huge success and I am returning to reality refreshed AND with the knowledge of my spirit animal. I think it was a coyote, but it was pretty flat and there were a lot of tire tracks. In news that requ... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res version HERE. This is an animated GIF featuring a year of earth's changing seasons in a single second. Just think, if time really went this fast you'd be dead in less than 80-seconds. Thankfully it doesn't though, so you'll survive until next next month when y... / Continue →

    Truthfully, I only posted this because of all the pretty twinkling colors, but I guess there is something to learn from watching it. Mostly, that people use the internet more during the day and not in the middle of the f***ing night. Shocking, I know. Also, the one little do... / Continue →

    This is an olinguito (oh-lin-GHEE-toe), a species of carnivorous mammal that has been known to exist for over 100 years, but was only recently scientifically documented and classified. That's weird. Maybe not as weird as where all the dried blood under my fingernails came fro... / Continue →

    This is a shot of earth as seen from the Cassini spacecraft orbiting Saturn some 900-million miles away. OH SHIT IS THAT AN ALIEN SPACESHIP POINTED AT US? Earth rarely shows up in Cassini's images because from the spacecraft's perspective, our planet is usually too close to... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to know where the Galapagos Islands used to be. SPOILER: No clue. This is the Pangea supercontinent imagined with current national borders. Was anybody else surprised to see that the US used to be neighbors with Canada and Mexico? ... / Continue →
