Apparently, Twitter believes this picture of Saturn or my description of it contains “nudity, sensitive content, violence, gore, or hateful symbols.”
The best costume I’ve seen so far was Jar Jar Binks as a Disney Princess.
This galaxy is the beautiful multi-armed NGC 7424, seen almost directly face-on. It’s around 40 million light-years in the southern sky constellation Grus (the Crane). It’s an example of a “grand design” galaxy, intermediate in form between normal spirals and strongly barred galaxies; it has rather open arms with a small central region. Ten young massive star clusters whose size span the range from 1 to 200 light-years have been identified. NGC 7424 is approximately 100,000 light-years across, about the size of our own Milky Way galaxy.
Because of its low surface brightness, this galaxy demands dark skies and a clear night to be observed in detail. When viewed in a small telescope, it appears as a large elliptical haze with no trace of the many beautiful filamentary arms with a multitude of branches revealed in this image taken by the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope.

This composite image of starburst galaxy M82 shows the distribution of dense molecular gas as seen by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory’s 85-ft Green Bank Telescope (yellow and red) and the background stars and dust as seen by Hubble (blue). The yellow areas correspond to regions of intense star formation. The red areas trace outflows of gas from the disk of the galaxy.

I think so, Brain … but weren’t the frozen CO2 ice caps on Mars caused by Marvin’s carbon footprint?
I think so, Brain … but what are the odds that we should clean Schrödinger’s cat box?
A man is known by his works. That I have heard at many a funeral.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is running for reelection and has won the state’s GOP primary—defeating George P. Bush.
Effective immediately, all agents, employees, and contractors of the Disinformation Governance Board (ДГБ) shall be referred to as checkists.

OK, I suppose being misinformed could cause someone to make a poor choice about one’s health.

I think so, Brain … but why would a kudu, a wombat, and a chinchilla all walk into a bar at the same time?

The Cabin Boy™ wants to keep flogging his dead horse story of non-existent plagiarism.
Fine. I hope he keeps it up. It has several benefits.
First, his foolishness provides an opportunity for pointage, laughery, and mockification by those who enjoy it.
Second, his time and energy spent ranting about me is time and energy that won’t be spent cyberstalking toddlers or cyberharassing the employers of his perceived enemies.
Third, over the past year or so, Bill Schmalfeldt and
Breitbart Unmasked Bunny Billy Boy Unread have lost what little credibility and what few readers they once had. At this point, nothing they write or say has any clout. While I intend to hold them to account for their earlier troublemaking, what they do online now (with the exception of continuing breaches of the 2014 Settlement Agreement) is not likely to be worth the trouble of addressing with anything other than derision.
Fourth, … oh, you get the picture, Gentle Reader.

Losing losers gotta lose.
I think so, Brain … but at least there are plenty of treadmills in stock.
Papers say: “Congress is deadlocked and can’t act.” I think that is the greatest blessing that could befall this country.
I started off hoping that the Xiden Administration would only be like a third Obama term. Then, I hoped it would only be Carter Redux. Now, a second Buchanan administration is looking like a best case scenario.The Gentle Reader may remember that the Democrats were also engaged in the protection of slavery during the Buchanan Administration.
I think so, Brain … but they’re only a squad, a whole platoon would be more trouble.
I think so, Brain … but he seems to be running out of other people to blame.
I think so, Brain … but most literature courses teach everything about books except how to enjoy them.
I’m the worst shot in the family.
His lips were moving.
Kinda makes me glad I took the Moderna vaccine.
