First, a PSA. If you are doing construction work in a townhouse development where people are still living, please do not turn up the bass on your car to “head pounding” at 7:30 in the morning. Grrr!
Next, I love Rebecca over at Skepchick for her latest post on the “Cracker Debacle.” I have yet to listen to that SGU, but I’m looking forward to it. The short of it: it’s hypocritical to be irreverent of other people’s beliefs then get uppity when your own irrational beliefs are under attack. It’s a perfectly human thing to feel, but being skeptical means striving to think beyond that.
On an inspirational note, today’s APOD has little to do with astronomy, but it’s really awesome. Yes, I got teary-eyed during the video. So sue me!
