High Definition Video Captured of Venus as it Passes Across the Face of the Sun Caught by the Solar Dynamics Observatory
Launched on Feb. 11, 2010, the Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is the most advanced spacecraft ever designed to study the sun.
During its five-year mission, it will examine the sun's atmosphere, magnetic field and also provide a better understanding of the role the sun plays in Earth's atmospheric chemistry and climate. SDO provides images with resolution 8 times better than high-definition television and returns more than a terabyte of data each day.
On June 5 2012, SDO collected images of the rarest predictable solar event--the transit of Venus across the face of the sun.
This event happens in pairs eight years apart that are separated from each other by 105 or 121 years. The last transit was in 2004 and the next will not happen until 2117.Comments (
AT&T Wants to Throttle My Unlimited Data Plan!
This morning I received a very disturbing text message from my friends at good 'ol AT&T. Their message was simple read this way:
ATT Free Msg: Your data usage has reached 3GB this month. Using more than 3GB in future billing cycles will result in reduced speeds. You can yadda yadda yadda...
This is the AT&T FU Data Message, as I read it:
Dear valueless AT&T customer, we realize that you signed a contract with us that started several years ago, and although you have 5 active devices with us and pay us in excess of $2500 a year in service plan fees that include an "UNLIMITED DATA PLAN" we are going to tighten the bandwidth thumbscrews on you and limit the speed in which we serve you. FU, have a nice day.
The Unlimited Data Plan contract I signed said just that, Unlimited Data In no place on that contract did it say "If we want to change the contract later on we can" because that is just, well, plain UNAMERICAN, and scummy. So at some later date, they, behind my back, renegotiated my contract to read, we can change the contract as we see fit.
In response to AT&T, I found it fitting that if their contract had an imaginary clause that said they can chage terms, well, then isn't it fair that my contract has some imaginary clauses, too?
- AT&T, if you throttle down my data rate , how's about I throttle down the rate in which I pay you?
- I deduct $1.00 off of my bill for every dropped call? Chances are, you'd owe me money at the end of the month.
- Every day the "No Service" message comes up, I prorate off that days charge.
- When my phone says E(dge) vs 3G in a confirmed 3G metro area, I pay you the proportional rate of bandwidth delivery, or about 20% of my plan rate.
- I charge you $75-100 per hour, my approximate book rate, whenever you make me wait to speak to one of those outsourced Indian service people that you can't understand, divided into 6 minute billing, of course. And 2 days of free service when ever that freaking call gets dropped.
AT&T if you want to continue collecting my money, I think it is wise choice for you to continue delivering the Unlimited Data Plan WE agreed to. Additionally, you should take some of that money and set up some cell towers that actually deliver uninterrupted cell service. Otherwise, you may find me changing my contract to CANCELLED.Comments (
Everyone loves a great football play.
I hate sports, I hate watching them. Why the hell would I waste 2 hours of my life when it only takes 20 seconds to pull up the final score on my iPhone? If something good were to happen in a game, they'll show me it on the news in the morning while I'm getting dressed.It's like Cliff's Notes for Sports.
But when cool or funny crap happens in a sporting event, I'm all for watching it. So here are the 2 best football plays to ever happen!
Quarterback Trick Play, QB Walks right plast the defense.
In this play the QB Snaps the ball & casually stands up and starts walking past them. The other team is so befuddled by this they just stare at him. When the Quarterback gets bast the first line of defensemen he makes a run for it.Comments (

KILLER BISCUITS WANTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER
(The actual AP Headline)
Lisa Burnett, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws. and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Several people noticed her sitting in her ear with the windows rolled up and and with eyes closed. with both hands behind the back of her head.
One customer who had been at the store for a while came concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Lisa's eyes were now open, and that hse looked very strange. He asked her of she was okay and Lisa replied that she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been jioldinger her baind in for over an hour.
The man called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Lisa refused to remove her hands fom her head. When they finally got in, they found that Lisa had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head... A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought that is was her brains.
She initially passed out, but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for over an house until someone noticed and came to her aid.
Lisa is blonde.Comments (
