Five pounds of Halloween show in a three pound bag!

2014/11/01

    “Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.”

Here is the recording of last night’s (2014-10-31) KNYO Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to download and keep or just play with one click.

Further, here are some links to interesting not necessarily radio-useful items that I found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

How have parents ruined Halloween? Let me count three ways.

This is an example of video I search out as soon as I hear about the disaster, to watch it over and over even though I hate what happened. It might be that I’m trying to memorize it so it won’t happen again, or won’t happen to me, the way people rubberneck at car wrecks, but I have no input into the process and will never get near a rocket to space and so it doesn’t matter what I know, and maybe that’s part of why it makes me so sad. (On the other hand, Lori Price of CLG NEWS implies that NSA (not NASA) had hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of secret spy machinery in it so, if that’s true, the sadness is somewhat queered.)

Further disaster. (The word disaster literally means bad star.)

And then something goes or rather will go right. On my birthday (Nov.12, 2014). I just want to say, see the way the European Space Agency gets you excited about real space science. NASA could take a lesson from them.

All the planets in the Solar system set edge-to-edge in a line, and Pluto also, would exactly fit between Earth and the Moon. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

How he made it. (In fact, from the after-talk: “What I learned is, beyond a certain level of effort there’s basically no correlation between the amount of work you put into something and how successful it is.”)

You think you can just grab it by the nose and keep it away. But you can’t, because of the strength of its great long arms and the sharpness of its six-inch claws, which can cut your spine in half by reaching in through the front of you. Think how stupid you would feel. You’d be like, “I’m killed! By an anteater!”
