There IS a God

Okay, readers of this blog will know that I already believe in a divine being. However, the fact that the SciFi channel is creating a BSG spinoff is actual proof. Okay, that and beer. Whatever works for you.

I can dream, can't I?

I will be too old to visit when it's completed, but I'm looking forward to at least seeing construction being on a permanent moon base. Excerpt:


Nasa, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, is developing a plan to send people back to the Moon half a century after it was first visited by Apollo astronauts.

Only this time Nasa intends to stay on the Moon by building a lunar base permanently manned by astronauts who will help prepare the groundwork for an even more ambitious manned mission to Mars.
...
The 2008 mission to the Moon will be the first of many robot missions that will culminate in a manned lunar landing between 2018 and 2020, the first since Apollo 17 in 1972.[ed. note: If you'd have told me back in 1972 that we wouldn't have visited the moon again before my 40th birthday, I'd have assumed that you were insane]

As a lifelong scifi buff, the thought of visiting the moon and staying there for a while is pretty exciting.

Yeah, I passed

Then again, I better have passed the damned thing. Otherwise, someone might have asked me to return my master's degree. Heck, they might have made me return my undergraduate degree, too.

Can I get a defibrillator with that?

Not getting enough caffeine in your diet? Do you find that drinking lots of coffee/soda to get your caffeine is too burdensome? Have I got an invention for you. Excerpt:


And now ThinkGeek Labs is proud to present the most revolutionary caffeine delivery system available: Buzzaire.

Buzzaire is, quite simply, a caffeine inhaler. One squeeze, one inhale, and you've just rushed 150mg of caffeine into your blood stream. Mints or drinks have to go through your digestive tract first before partying in your blood (or through your skin, in the case of caffeinated soap). But the lung/blood barrier is the fastest way (other than injection or IV) to get caffeine into your system. Not only will you get one heck of a rush, but you'll also freshen your breath! A hint of peppermint oil in each puff will give you a little extra perk with its peppy zing. Buzzaire can beat up your air!
...

Caffeine Comparison Chart
Drink/Food Caffeine Content
12oz Can of Coke 34mg
12oz Can of Mt. Dew 37mg
12oz of Jolt Cola 78mg
10oz Bottle of Bawls 80mg
8oz of Brewed Coffee 70-120mg
One breath of Buzzaire 150mg


I forsee really big sales.

Update: When you want a shower that induces a coronary in the morning.
