I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Quite fascinating AND endlessly remarkable.

And costly beyond measure.

We Yanks have to provide opportunities for people trained in STEM (science, technology, etc).

Without a supply of such people, our war-making powers would atrophy.

Quite remarkable!

I visit NASA APOD every day; it's my only chance to see some stars. Here the light pollution is so bad that we sometimes see a planet or a some stars but too few to see the pattern.

On the far right, bottom of the photo, press the circle button for a panoramic view of the Milky Way.

I love astronomy and do get the photo of the day from NASA. I don't like it enough to learn the names of the constellations and stars. Of course, I know the usual ones ... the Dippers and Cassiopea, stuff like that. 

According to Tyson, when the Milky Way and Andromeda collide, there will not be too much collision because the stars will dance and circle around each other and mingle their dust clouds. 

Comment by tom sarbeck on January 24, 2015 at 5:55pm

Fasten your seatbelts, future earthlings.

I understand that Andromeda and our Milky Way will collide.

In about five billion years.

Does anyone else get NASA's Astronomy Pic of the Day?

Search on NASA APOD. Every day a different pic.

I've made it my Firefox browser homepage.

My computer wouldn't show "NASA's Largest Picture Ever Taken" so I had to hunt for it.  Finally found it and it was amazing how much I could zoom-in on it.

The only thing I ever did was try to work up a comedy act with a partner.  Gave it up when the bruises got to be too obvious.  I always liked being part of a team.  Especially in the obligatory "precision" numbers.

There were three of us in the bear suits, and nobody could see my face, or even tell if I was male or female (because of the padding.)  We had to be "cute and friendly" so that children wouldn't start screaming (they did anyway) when we handed them giant lollipops.....  Southern kids were the worst....the kids in Mexico City were  not only enchanted, they wanted to follow us back onto the ice..  We learned how to say "too slippery" in Spanish, but we really had to yell it inside those heads.

OK! If that is good enough for you, it is good enough for me to hear. But you must have felt like standing out when you were skating professionally! You were so pretty, and your style was so fresh. Even when you were in a costume of a bear or whatever it was didn't you feel like putting your whole self into acting like the bear?
