To boldly go...

Or to go boldly if you aren't into splitting your infinitives.

I blogged on this a while back that there are actually fewer humans and it has been longer since we went to the bottom of the deepest ocean on earth than man going to the moon!   Here is a great summary by the BBC on the current challengers in the race to the bottom of the ocean.  Doesn't that sound like a Jules Verne type novel/film with Victorian adventurers and lots of steam pipes hissing and scary previously unseen monsters of the deep attacking you...   oh only me then

  2. Personally, being a "moon child" myself, I'm sad that the States is no longer funding NASA. I was hoping that we'd make it to Mars one day...but I'm a dreamer...

  4. EVERYTHING has gone downhill since 1960.

    Music, Morals, Dress Sense and bloody basic politeness.

    Oh for the days of polite criminals, newspapers that didn't print sh*t abd mandatory blue or brown suits. *sigh*
