The resolution during the closest approach in july will be 5000x better than it is right now. As it is, these are already the most detailed images of the dwarf planet.

That was a John Belushi quote from an SNL skit.

John was complaining, among other things, that the grand Canyon was unimpressive because it was "fuzzy and indistinct". The fact that he refuses to wear glasses is lost on him.

They aren't the only ones and this isn't the first time companies have done this for disaster relief.
I know they are set up for it, they get the charity tax right off and pr advertising but it's still a decent thing to do.
I certainly don't have the ability to provide safe potable water for thousands of people.

Yup. Coke does it too.

I seem to recall reading that Coke was also piggy-backing medical supplies and other small-but-important stuff into its distribution network. (There are plenty of places where you can get Coke but not drinkable water.) Maybe they were just looking into it, I forget.

Yup, the first stage of any modern bottling plant is water treatment that exceeds US municipalities standards.

Typical stupid videogame physics. Dude goes through a second floor concrete wall, but is stopped by a park bench? Get real Rockstar games.

I don't think he'd be moving very fast if he made it through the concrete wall . . . . .

I knew there was a banjo mania in the early 20th century, but I have never seen one of those.


When my daughter was 4 she kept talking about wanting a banjo. I searched all over thinking there had GOT to be a child's banjo from that era on E-Bay or in antique stores, but no such luck.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

They've even got Hitler dressed up like Uncle Sam. Now that's a Spy vs. Spy I must have missed.

I live within ~50 miles of Brooklyn. Anything that is both a banjo and a uke has been snatched up by a hipster for sure.

I ended up getting her a new inexpensive travel-sized one.
Like most of her instruments, she just plunks it now and then--whenever I offer to to help her to learn to play it, she finds something else to do.
