Shed or workshop, same principles. Too true.
I used to work for that company! It's *true*!
Sure is. Pluto stopped being a planet in 2006.
Grandpa$, Pluto did not stop being existing.... That didn't say it was a list of "official" planets.
Anyway, an image someone made of Mercury's transit past the Sun on Monday.
And based on a past post, somebody ain't gonna get this.......
Painted on the wall? I don't know... it looks hung to me...
Yes, yes, I get it. Give his name and I know who you're talking about, it's just his face I didn't get. Tell me "George Gassaway" and I'll know whom you're talking about, but I surely wouldn't know your face either.
Galileo, galileo ...
I've been laughing at most of the Woman/Cat memes that have been floating around of late.
OUCH!!! I use an old school 8" Celestron, I'm paranoid as anything about where it's pointed when I take the lens cap off. I try to make sure it's pointed about 180 degrees away while I put the solar filter on. Things could get real hot, real quick. I'm really sorry to hear about your mishap. I've been real close to making that mistake a few times myself. As it was, I missed the transit of Mercury due to overcast and snowy conditions.
That image was XKCD from yesterday. He was making a "no filters" joke. https://xkcd.com/2227/
I guess the joke's on me. The picture was bad enough that I was willing to believe fried equipment.
I wouldn't have known either if I hadn't seen it on XKCD first. Poe's Law strikes again.
I didn't know rubbing alcohol could treat nausea .
