The NY Post “laptop” story seems to have been the Trump campaign’s shot. No one’s taking it seriously this time… Funny how four years of obvious lying can damage your credibility!

Yes, this. I keep hearing that the Food Bank gets more food for the dollar when *they* purchase it because they have bulk deals with the suppliers. Better to donate money.

Cool - a “Sash Sinister” *and* a “Sash Dexter”… Which Queen is which?

True, but people like Trump show it’s possible to do both!

Just enjoy knowing that there is a group of robots over there just sciencing away, learning fun things, and sharing them with us, and maybe just give them a wave or a nod

The only thing that *really* got me excited about the new Apple product announcements was the guest appearance of the Andromeda galaxy. That light is two and half million years old.

9/9 That's enough. I'm going out to look at Mars again. It's only 4 minutes in the past, and very pretty. My Mom saw it for the first time tonight, and she thought so, too. 😊

8/9 If the Andromedans are looking at Earth, they won't see us - To them, Homo sapiens won't appear for another 2 million+ years. Just some vaguely recognizable hominids, banging rocks together...

7/9 If you have dark skies, away from the city, you can look at the Andromeda Galaxy, or M31, and peer 2.9 *million* years into the past. It's that smudge of light just below the "W" of Cassiopeia.

6/9 *All* astronomical observations are time travel, in a sense – When you look at the Sun, you are seeing it as it appeared 8.3 minutes ago. The Moon, about a second ago. The stars in the Big Dipper are around 80 to 125 years in the past. Orion's Belt is 1000 years in the past.
