This is a big fucking horse

Indeed, a big fucking horse. His name is Poe. He's British.

Also, without the UK's Telegraph, my life would be void of awesome animal news.

Goodnight Moon.

Like this, but with a telescope (also with guitars)

Somehow I, of all people, have, through some strange twist of fate, never looked at the Moon through a telescope. Until tonight that is. I bought a telescope (a really nice one) from a thrift store today (for really cheap), and I'm pretty sure it has changed my life. I'm still in a daze right now from the thrill of it all. Stay tuned for some homebrew astrophotography once I figure things out and buy the adaptor for my camera.

Help Me Understand

Someone explain to me why we should bother with the ISS for one second longer and why we should put one more shuttle into orbit. According to the Blue Ribbon Commission on Human Spaceflight we don't have the cash to make it back to the moon, but for $30 Billion more we can probably do it. So why not dump the ISS already and get our moon bound asses into gear and into that cheddah?
