Curiosity Rover on Mars ... Meanwhile Back On Earth

Do you enjoy reading the news?  Many subjects attract my attention, some weighty and serious and others quite superficial and frivolous.  If you are either highbrow or lowbrow and have news, or an entertaining story to tell ... pleazzze come and sit by me.

Today I saw two very compelling images in the media.  The first one -- of the Curiosity Rover, which successfully landed on Mars this morning at 1:31 AM.  NASA launched it 8 months ago; it travelled 354.182 million miles (570 million km) and now its 2-year mission is to study the Red Planet for signs of microbial life.  Isn't landing a car/science lab on another planet exciting?  Watch here.

Then I spotted these shorts and learned that studs are once again fashionable.  (They went out?)  Adorable, right?  I WANT these shorts and will be out looking -- if not for this exact pair -- than for something similar!

So keeping up with current events pays dividends (you are a little smarter) ... and can cost you a few dollars.

  1. It really is amazing to think about what we could learn from Mars.
    Studs are always great and I bet you could DIY them if you couldn't find that pair!
