This just in…
Sources tell Newscenterplexdoppler Live 5 that PW (AKA: Mom, Patti Watti, and from time to time, Damnit Patti), spouse of world famous Communications and Public Relations Guru, BuckeyeTimmy, is two centimeters dilated.

For further information, we go to Roger in the Live Super Newsplex Doppler Live Newsroom Center Room Plex…

Thanks Will…
According to sources wishing to remain anonymous, one centimeter equals 10 millimeters.
Back to you Will…

Thanks Roger…
For further information, we now go Live to Janet at the Greenville Hospital System.

Will, after days of research with local authorities, local physicians, and local locals, Newscenterplexdoppler Live 5 has learned that cervix dilation is an indicator of impending birth of a new baby. We have also learned that when dilation begins, birth of a new baby will be coming soon.

Of Nothing In Particular

I wanted to get a blog in before I break for Christmas. I’m a state employee. We break for Christmas, ya know. It’s true what they say, state pay is average to slightly below average. However the benefits are pretty darn cool.

Coming Soon: Death of the Arcade; A Photo Essay If you were a teen or pre-teen in the 80s and shoveled what seemed like millions of dollars, one quarter at a time, into the likes of Tempest, Defender, Asteroids, and other such earth-shattering advances in modern technology, you’re going to like this photo essay.

One last thing: Have you ever seen one galaxy punch another? It’s a bit hard to comprehend (and explain), but you can see the photo to the right.

This composite image shows the jet from a black hole at the center of a galaxy striking the edge of another galaxy. The main galaxy is the purple-ish blob in the lower left. The companion galaxy is the smaller purple-ish blog diagonal.

A jet of particles generated by a supermassive black hole at the center of the main galaxy (blue) is striking the companion galaxy. The jet is disrupted and deflected by this impact.

I think often about the nearly unimaginable size and nature of the objects within the universe. I also think often of my little girl and the nearly unimaginable complexity of the human body. If that’s too much for you, maybe just start with the complexity of, say, just one eye…or your big toe…or your response to a cold…or the processes in the body that happen after you get a paper cut.

From what I was taught in school, it all started with a really big explosion. Bing, bang, boom, eight gazillion years later I’ve turned from a piece of carbon to having the intelligence to write/post a blog.

Yeah, I don’t think so.
