Have not watched this myself. Came across it in one of the many other blogs I follow. Apparently it sounds like a wonderfully interesting autobiography of James Randi’s life.]]>
The image went viral and was featured on many Dutch news sites and twitter feeds.
One problem: the part of the Milky Way visible on the image….cannot be seen from the Netherlands, but only from the southern hemisphere, as was quickly pointed out by several amateur astronomers. Oopsy…
The image shows amongst others the dark ‘coalsack’, the Southern Cross constellation, and the eta Carina nebula, all of which are only visible from the southern hemisphere and equatorial regions, and never come above the horizon at 51 N, the latitude where the image was purportedly taken.
The irony? His blog post featuring the image says (in Dutch) he “doesn’t like photoshopping”.]]>
Whiskey & ice will ruin your heart.
Gin & ice will ruin your brain.
Cola & ice will ruin your teeth.
Apparently ice is extremely dangerous stuff!!!
And don’t forget, it also sank the Titanic.
Warn all your friends to LAY OFF THE ICE! - Just drink it straight!
