I'm trying to decide which is the greater natural phenomena, the crossing of the sun and moon in such an amazing way as to blot out the former, or the fact that there is a statue of Clarence Darrow in Tennessee.

Planning to be in Montreal for the 2024 eclipse.

We changed plans Monday morning based on the satellite images. Got a great view southwest of St. Loser.

Well, you can tell your cousins that the moon is receding about one and a half inches away from the earth every year. In millions of years a solar eclipse will be pretty dismal.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

You tell them. I gave up in the Sixties.

Even if the sun and the moon were the same size, why would the prove god exists? #LogicFail

I have seen you've stopped bothering, but did you at least say "the sun and the moon AREN'T the same size" and through your shoe's a them in disgrace?

Proof that some people are idiots.

“One of my colleagues at moonlight here stated yesterday that they had patients presenting at their clinic that put sunscreen on their eyeball, and presented that they were having pain and they were referred to an ophthalmologist," Patterson said"

Facepalm

They're impervious to normal logic, so my responses are simply meant to fuck with their heads. In this case the response was "Or Satan did it and you're all happy about the devil's work."

I was originally going to Grand Island, Nebraska, but got scared off by the cloud predictions. I moved to Glendo, Wyoming, where I got a 100% clear sky, and great temperatures.

In 2024 I'll probably go to Mexico to get the greatest chance of clear skies. But, Buffalo is a whole lot closer.
