Being blind as a bat, I look up at the night sky and try to imagin what folks with better eyes can see.
Then I realise, it's not me at all, its because I live in light polluted England.
Now this picture was taken at 8000 ft above sea level in Colorado, 20 miles from the nearest city (you can see the Orange light pollution on the bottom left).
I'd like this image blown up to 16x7 foot and have it cover my office wall.
Love it, bloody love it.

When I get so big I can't see it, I'll rely on memory as it what it looks like, god help me. Mmm, maybe I should take some pictures of it, for the future, just in case.. If only the iPhone 3GS had a decent camera... And a Macro Lens.

Nestlé don't want you to see the video above, because they complained to Youtube that we were infringing their copyright. Youtube removed the video but now we'd like to offer it to you, as a gift. Download the video and put it on your favourite video sharing site. The more people who join in, the more interesting we'll make it for Nestlé.
And we all like a break, so it's time to give orang-utans one. Nestlé uses palm oil in Kit Kat and many other products which is bought from suppliers that destroy rainforests in Indonesia to grow their plantations.
As a result, threatened species like orangutans are being pushed into extinction and huge quantities of greenhouse gases are being released, accelerating climate change.
Nestlé have so far refused to stop buying palm oil from the worst suppliers, so it's time to make them change their minds.
Write to CEO Paul Bulcke to demand they act responsibly and cease trading with companies that are destroying Indonesia's rainforests.

Led Lenser L7 High Power LED Lightweight TorchWhat can I say, the Led Lenser L7 is a cheap, plastic version of the Amazing P7. It's probably been made with the cheapskate in mind as it does very much a similar job as the P7 on output, with only High Power.
There is no low power and the focus is changed by twisting (al la Police Tech Focus).
The output is really very good and as the torch is lightweight I keep one in my Response pack for emergencies.
It's a nice torch, just, well, plastic.
* 650ft beam range
* High Intensity CREE LED Light Chip
* Maximum intensity - 100 Lumens
* Polycarbonate casing
* Rear Tail Cap Switch
* Spot to flood focus simply by twisting the head of the torch
Burn Time Up to 85 hours Dimensions 145x34mm Weight XXX Power Supply 2 x AAA Batteries ED C-LED Length 130mm Weight 140g Lumens 110 Batteries 3x AA Beam distance 200m Burning time 40h Switch On/Off Item no. ZL7008

I set off from Bristol at 13.20 and finally arrived in Blackpool at 21.17. Manic roads, mad drivers, bad weather, accidents, road works, you name it. Still, now I know my car uses a lot less fuel driving 182 miles at 22mph. I'm having an early night, long weekend ahead and as much as I would love to be out and about tonite, it wouldn't do anyone any favors. Bright and early in the morning. I shall broadcast as soon as I've had breakfast. Http://feelfamous.com

This video came out 2 years ago, I've only just seen it and sadly, it's more true than ever.
The probelm is similar to that of the CB radio of years gone by.
As new people came on the CB, they listened and learned from the people using it at the time. In the beginning it was people who respected the technology and the abbility to speak to new people across town, county, country or World, depending on "How big your Twig was" (the size of your Antenna), "How many Wellies you were Chucking" (The amount of power being produced by your Transmitter) and if you were using a Sidebander or Foot and Mouth (Single Side Band, SSB or Frequency Modulation, FM as your choosen method of Transmission)
Then, as people died off or got board with the Muppets, Planks, Phantom Keyers, Bucket Mouths and CBDJS more people came with the idea that this was the norm.
And so, Muppet begat Muppet.
Thus, CB radio became a sad place to be and as such, died out.
I wonder if this is the same thing, people using slang and phrases that really should have died out post dial up and yet, here we are in the same boat.
This video and a few others by the same folks at Videojug seem to be a Portent that we should listen to, on the Internets will become an even bigger cess pit that it is now.
