The last Expanse novel’s title & cover was released and the book’s release date kind of announced. It is sadly still a ways off. Right now they’re just saying will release 2021. Cool cover and call back to the first novel’s title. I’m guessing the Levithan in this case will be the Laconian Empire.Continue reading Leviathan Falls Next Year
I saw the cool animated gif of lightning showing through the clouds of Hurricane Laura in the Tweet below, visible from space via weather satellites.
For this #WednesdayMorning, take a look at #HurricaneLaura with @NOAA's #GOESEast satellite as the hurricane's convection bursts with lightning. As of 8 a.m. EDT, #Laura had winds of 115 mph and was rapidly intensifying in the Gulf of Mexico.— NOAA Satellites (@NOAASatellites) August 26, 2020

That by the way is NOT what frightened me. No, that made me feel inspired by nature, its power and beauty, and how we can never entirely control it (nor should we).Continue reading What Really Frightens Me
Want signed copies of The Expanse books? Well minus the last (book 9) which has yet to be released, and the in between novellas.Continue reading Want signed copies of The Expanse books?
So I see this lottery touch screen kiosk thing in a store and its big blurb is: “Luck Out, Cash In”. Okay I know in United States & Canada colloquial speech, “Luck Out” means to be lucky. Heck, I’ve used it that way myself. But it has always annoyed me as it seems short for “out of luck” to me, which of course means UNlucky. Apparently I’m not the only one who feels that way, as the dictionary also gives the colloquial definition in England and Australia as exactly that — luck out there means to be unlucky.Continue reading Language is a Virus: “Luck Out, Cash In” Conundrum
This soon to be released game looks intense and has already won a bunch of awards.
I only heard about this upcoming flick awhile back. A new trailer just came out, and needless to say I want to see it, preferably in a movie theater now that Covid nonsense allows, and not a year later on DVD.
What would you do for a penny? No I don’t mean what would you do if someone offered you a penny. I mean how far would you go to prove a point when you have been SHORTED a PENNY by a VERY large mega-corporation with 2.2 MILLION employees world-wide? Obviously it’s not so much about the fracking cent at this point, but when your payroll statement basically says… $xxxx.x4 + $xxx.x3 = $xxxx.x6 … then there is something wrong. Last time I checked four plus three equals SEVEN, not six. Continue reading What would you do (or not do) for a penny?
Have someone hide your phone (or just misplace it like I always do). Walk around the house and say this, loudly… “OK, Google… Make a bunch of noise so I can find you.”Continue reading Useful Google Assistant Silliness… “This is a Tractor.”
Only a few hours into my day and its already a little bizarre. First driving to work early in the AM and had to stop to let a raccoon cross the road. So I’ve heard its bad if a black cat crosses the road in front of you, but what happens when a ‘coon does so? Apparently you soon stumble on a counterfeit $100 bill laying on a grocery shelf in the laundry soap aisle. 😜
