I remember my sister and me laughing our asses off as we were driving around and my mom didn't notice that there was anything unusual about that song as it played on the radio.

Go all the way.

I listen to Britney Spears music when doing strenuous things. It's good exercise music.

No, it's still unlistenable synth-pop drum machine heavy muzak garbage, but the lyrics in the F.-.-.-.Me song are funny.

I was doing my usual scans of sites.

On SpaceWeather.com they featured this picture on Saturday, 4/28:

Image

which is possible to be seen on the Moon for a few hours about 4 days before any Full Moon.

Do note: SpaceWeather.com changes nearly everyday, so eventually that picture will disappear from the front page.

The writer there mentioned that this mountain range can also be seen in "2001" during the sequence where the trans-lunar shuttle Aries (huh, I had forgotten that that ship had a name) is going to the Moon. So I had to find that online. As it happened you can see that mountain ridge in the very first shot in that video, although in "2001" the lunar phase a BIT more advanced that in the picture above.

Of course having the Blue Danube playing is always pleasant so I let that video play on.

But then I noticed something starting at the 1 minute mark: why does the Aries have to deploy her retracted landing gear?

I suppose that in terms of clean lines, having the smooth surface of the nearly spherical Aries--aside from her rear engine cluster--is a bonus, BUT for a trans-lunar shuttle that presumably never enters the Earth's atmosphere this does seem like a rather unnecessary feature.

I guess an argument could be made that the landing gear is retracted to help protect it from possible strikes from meteors or man-made space debris, but if that were a common problem in "2001" then that would also call for other changes like removing those big windows from the cockpit of the Aries.

but most people were surprised when he came out, I guess "gaydars" weren't so good/prevalent in the 80s.

Having lived through the 80's, I can attest that it was exceptionally difficult to know who was gay and who was just a hair band rocker. Men used more hair spray, got more perms, and wore more tights than women. At the same time, women were wearing suits, wearing mohawks or other male hairstyles, and generally looking more like men than women. Well, when they didn't look like Cocker Spaniels. It's actually kind of sad that the transgender movement didn't happen then, because transitioning would have been as simple as joining a band.
