You find all the good stuff, Di!

The kids and I thank you. Superb stuff.
One of those pics looks like NZ between the clouds, thought you'd appreciate that.
[color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]"On March 13, 2006 Cassini’s narrow-angle camera captured this look at Saturn and its rings, seen here nearly edge on. The frame also features Mimas and tiny Janus (above the rings), and Tethys (below the rings). “Above” and “below” the rings is mostly a matter of perspective here. All three moons and the rings orbit Saturn in roughly the same plane.[/color]

[color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.84)]The night side of Mimas is gently illuminated by “Saturnshine,” sunlight reflected from the planet’s cloud tops."[/color]

great stuff!

Earth could use another moon or two, in my opinion.

(not sure how surfers would feel about that.)

I'll ask a few.
Nice find on the photos Di. Thanks. Stuff like this never fails to inspire.
You guys know this thread is nearly two years old...right?
One of the blessings of an ageing memory: All the old stuff is new again.
I heard it was 4 years old.

But i'm typically out of synch...
2 years in either direction.
It's a dyslexia issue with me.
Right-left, yesterday-tomorrow...

If i was a time traveler, I'm pretty sure I couldn't remember if I was from the future or the past.
I'm pretty sure this is a common complaint among time travelers, should they exist in the future.

One thing I can tell you is that tomorrow's big lottery ticket will have the digits of the square root of two, in reverse sequence.

But i can also tell you that winning that prize will be the worst thing that ever happened to you.

(time travel sucks, big time.)

chicks dig it at first, but then it freaks them out and they tend to dump you for a Neanderthal.

(But that doesn't work out much better for them, which is vaguely uplifting.)

In a low-key revenge sort of way.

Once you do time travel, you reek all havoc on the sequence of Karma.

Like, you could be suffering because of the sins of your past life...or you could be suffering pre-emptively, so that you can have a super indulgent life later on.
And later on, of course, for a dyslexic time traveler, can get confusing as hell.

for instance, there's a brief spell of metric time in the future....which tends to throw the precision of memory even further astray.

(As you might imagine.)
