I think if I was with that insurance company, I'd prefer lower premiums to a giant flagpole in its parking lot.

That looks very much like a previous APOD.

I don't really know. I got it from a cousin in an e-mail, who got it from... who got it from... who got it from... ECT. But it is unusual to see them, so i posted it here.

Never seen a bird like this before.

OOPS! Wrong video. Supposed to be a black bird doing a mating dance. When he spreads his feathers, from the front he looks like a blue smiley face. IF i come across it again, I'll replace the Osprey.

Then you need to bird watch lakes, rivers & the seashore this summer. Ospreys are a world-wide species (except for Antarctica) common near bodies of water with fish.

Mr Spock is dead. Probably. I read on the internet that he is not dead, but there are more sources claiming that he is. This one, for example.

I'm a bit sad. :(

A video about those floaty weird things you see in your field of vision, sometimes. I am particularly happy to learn what "blue sky sprites" are. I noticed they flowed something like blood and wondered if they had anything to do with the blood in my retina. Well, now I know!
