    Size Really Does Matter

    Astronomy Picture of the Day

    a interactive chart that rather puts our place in the cosmic scheme
    of things in perspective.

    Very cool.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Very interesting.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    I fricken LOVE that Universities are now placing some of their science courses on video.google
    I can watch professors talk about cosmology or quantum physics instead of lammo TV. I can get taught, casually, stuff that would've blown Einstein's mind.

    Science is a public good. The more you know, the more the net social benefit we get from this investment.
    McDonalds wants us to watch Survivor so that their executives can get more money. Morality wants us to be as informed as possible so that we can be as wise as possible.

    Great but, too bad there was no size comparison between the .45 ACP & the 9mm.

    Mindboggling, to say te least.

    Just zoom in to the small end of the scale!

    This was very cool, I spent about 20 minutes playing with it, and reading some of the facts when I clicked on the different images.
