Spectacular Sunday

AURORAS MIX WITH MOONLIGHT: Some photographers worry that bright moonlight will spoil their aurora photos. “Not last night,” says Chad Blakley of Abisko, Sweden. “The full Moon illuminated our snowy landscape and made a beautiful moonbow beneath the aurora borealis.” The Lights over Lapland automated webcam captured the scene:

“It was a spectacular sight as the the auroras and the moonbow mirrored each other’s shape almost perfectly,” he says. Moonbows (lunar rainbows) form when bright moonlight bounces in and out of falling raindrops.  “It had been raining earlier in the evening, and there were still some water droplets in the air when the clouds parted to reveal the auroras,” says Blakley. “It was a perfect mix!”

    Travesty upon nature occurred when a stupid redneck driving a semi loaded with a million bees failed to see traffic stopped ahead on the freeway and went off the freeway into an embankment.

    Apparently all the bees perished because of the stupid POS’s inability to drive.

    Sad for the poor bees. 😦

    John Cleese, wikipedia:

    During then-Republican nominee Donald Trump’s run for the U.S. Presidency in 2016, Cleese described Trump as “a narcissist, with no attention span, who doesn’t have clear ideas about anything and makes it all up as he goes along”.[58] He had previously described the leadership of the Republican Party as “the most cynical, most disgracefully immoral people I’ve ever come across in a Western civilisation”.

    Firearms were used to kill 13,286 people in the U.S. in 2015, excluding suicide. Approximately 1.4 million people have been killed using firearms in the U.S. between 1968 and 2011, equivalent to a top 10 largest U.S. city in 2016, falling between the populations of San Antonio and Dallas, Texas.

    Y’all keep praying…that should fix the problem, eh?
