That thing got yer name on it?

So, via CNet news (follow the link in the title) you can go here and add your name to a microchip that will fly on NASA'a next moon mission, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO).

Notice the word Orbiter as in orbiting the moon, not landing on it.

Don't tell her, but I finally can tell my wife, "One of these days, Alex, POW! Straight to the moon!" I even saved the certificate with her name on it.

The deadline is June 27th, so go do it if you're a-gonna.

Santa Fe Brewin'

If you find yourself in the Santa Fe region--or if you're lucky enough to live there--head on over to my brother's place. They don't serve alcohol there, but you can get everything you need to make beer or wine at home.

And that's the important thing--make it at home. That way we won't have to look at you stumblin' all over the place when you're in your cups!

You can tell him I sent you, but he'll just laugh.

Gay bashing for Allah

Gay Patriot has the story on 10 muslim, ahem, immigrant youths who pulled a gay runway model off the runway and groped and beat him at an event on Queen Day promoting--wait for it--tolerance.

Comment #12 is mine.

Go read Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali. It's an unvarnished, autobiographical look at the journey of a muslim girl born in Somali who eventually becomes a MP in Holland and lives each day under the threat of being murdered by islamic decree.

Then read America Alone by Mark Steyn. His tongue-in-cheek style is well-suited to providing an entertaining romp through statistics and quotes that portray Islam--and the West's inevitable demise at the hands thereof--in an honest light.

Pass them around to your friends, family, and elected officials. Oh, and have a nice day.
