Why is it to be evil they seem to think you must be crazy?

Scorpius
You scored 20 % maniacal, 85 %intelligent, and 44% power!
If you've never heard of him, you'd probably better watch Farscape, but it's cancelled, so oh well. Scorpius has a split personality, one seems very pleasant and intelligent, the other is strong and forceful. He has his share of problems, but he doesn't let anything stand in his way. He is very determined and scary too.

NASA has posted their top 10 pictures, and it brings up a question I have concerng the gas giants... Gases are tranluscent. And as atmoshere get further from the planet, they get thinner. Yet instead of hazy outlines of the planets, like I would expect, the limbic edges are always very well defined. Also, the atmosapheres are often described as turbulent, but the edge is a perfectly smooth arc. Even the closest pictures of Saturn and Jupiter fail to show softness on the edges, not irregularity of shape you would expect storms to produce. Are the cameras just not close enough?

Wooo Hoo!!! By the time get home today, the dish wash should be fixed. Two weeks of washing by hand will come to an end.

And Thursday, the aborted attempt to get fiber to the house should be back on track, as they will dig the trench and run the fiber. Mmmmm... Fiber.... I'm not sure what day they will be installing the drop inside the house, though.

In other news, I have a couple 35Gb hard drives that will be put into service soon. I will be running Raid-1 for the image archive. This should speed up the archive access over the IDE drive it is on now and provide some redundency in case of hardware failure.

Actually, what I need to get is osme USB drive enclosures, so I can hot swap drives, and use them for back-ups. Some day....

Know any Church goers? Can those of you who are of a Christian faith talk to your fellow worshippers and stop them from being FUCKING IDIOTS?!?!?!?!?!

Seriously. The Religious right is trying to stop the cervical cancer vaccine from being administerred to girls for fear it will make them promiscuous.

Please, pretty please, inject some inteligence into these fundamentalists. Have they had cancer? Have they had a relative or friend who has had it? Very likely. And they want to stop the first ever cancer vaccine? This level of stupidity is beyond my grasp.
