Uh Oh…

today at work, a noticeably beautiful woman walks in and of course two guys i work with do this…

it’s like they can’t help it! like it’s an involuntary spasm. as said woman leaves our establishment, they do this…

as i look up at them, one of them is looking directly at me with a smirk.


me: “what are you looking at me for?”

#1: “i just wanted to see if uh…”

#2: “to see if you’re normal!”


how did this become the norm?! don’t get me wrong, i like the ladies and some of you need to put some more clothes on so i’m not tempted, but i can still restrain myself. and if you notice, these are the guys that don’t look at their wives in the same way they look at some under-age girl in a tube-top.

hence, the title of the blog. we lost respect for the beauty of innocence… and the innocence of beauty.

A Mote of Dust Suspended in a Sunbeam…

23 04 2009

  this picture stunned astronomy. NASA sent out Voyager 1 into space in 1990. when it was nearly 4 billion miles away from the earth just outside our solar system, they told it to turn around and take some pictures. it just so happened to take a picture of Earth…


“We succeeded in taking that picture [from deep space], and, if you look at it, you see a dot… That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam. The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena… Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.”  – Carl Sagan (atheist astronomer)

Happy Earth Day

No Shoes Day!…

16 04 2009

if you read the last post then you should no that today is “no shoes day”. because of my job i cannot fully participate in the not wearing of shoes, but i can wear my TOMS all day long! today is  a day to bring awareness to the impact a pair of shoes can have in a child’s life. when you buy a pair of TOMS shoes they give away a pair of shoes to a child who has no shoes. so today, if you can, be a part of this! if you can’t not wear shoes and you have a pair of TOMS, throw ’em on! if you don’t own a pair of TOMS, buy some!


One Day Without Shoes…

odws_savethedate1i cannot guarantee that i can take part in this, given that i work in an auto shop, but i won’t keep this to myself. it may sound hypocritical on my part for not doing it, but just because i can’t, doesn’t mean you can’t.

Cosmic Hand Reaches for the Light…

7 04 2009


Tiny and dying but still-powerful stars called pulsars spin like crazy and light up their surroundings, often with ghostly glows. So it is with PSR B1509-58, which long ago collapsed into a sphere just 12 miles in diameter after running out of fuel.

And what a strange scene this one has created.


In a new image from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, high-energy X-rays emanating from the nebula around PSR B1509-58 have been colored blue to reveal a structure resembling a hand reaching for some eternal red cosmic light.


The star now spins around at the dizzying pace of seven times every second — as pulsars do — spewing energy into space that creates the scene.


Strong magnetic fields, 15 trillion times stronger than the Earth’s magnetic field, are thought to be involved, too. The combination drives an energetic wind of electrons and ions away from the dying star. As the electrons move through the magnetized nebula, they radiate away their energy as X-rays.


The red light actually a neighboring gas cloud, RCW 89, energized into glowing by the fingers of the PSR B1509-58 nebula, astronomers believe.


The scene, which spans 150 light-years, is about 17,000 light years away, so what we see now is how it actually looked 17,000 years ago, and that light is just arriving here.


A light-year is the distance light travels in a year, about 6 trillion miles (10 trillion kilometers).

wow. i love this stuff! i found this on Yahoo!
