You have got to see this!

In case you missed it, like I did (cause my broke ass cant afford a Tv), here is Tina Fay's inevitable return to Saturday Night Live. Why inevitable? Bitch looks just like Palin! Lorne Michaels is probably stuffing everything she owns with money right now to get this bitch back so SNL can capitalize on it. This is seriously the funniest shit Ive seen on SNL in years! I could watch these two go on all day...

Dear god she has yellow eyes! Yellow eyes!

Thank you NASA!!!

I got caught in a YouTube vortex today and totally geeked out on this 47 minute video... I know I know, its a looong video but the experiments they get to do in space are soo cool. Hooray for surface tension. Show this to your friends/children and make sure they see how exited you are about it...OBEY!

Time-lapse lava flowing over the pali

"Between the morning of September 20 and the evening of September 22, there were 10 separate breakouts from the East Lae`apuki tube about 50 meters inland from the sea cliff at the East Lae`apuki ocean entry. The breakout featured here was the most spectacular of the series with perhaps as many as twelve separate lava cascades over the sea cliff--depending on how you count them. The breakout started just after 4:00 PM when glare from the sun was at its worst. Thus, this movie sequence starts just before sunset when the view improves dramatical" ~HVO

September 6, 2008 - Vintage papa

Check out the fashion icon my papa was back in the late seventies, note that he's still sportin the Burt Reynolds look. But the really creepy thing about this picture is it totally looks like Nik is in the background...WTF?!! (may need to click on the picture and see full res) Maybe Nik's been using that weird medicine that makes you teleport... if thats the case we need to talk... and also, who BBQ's in a white tie?! Thats too funny.

Poor Ed is rolling in his grave...

Im pretty sure this wasnt an intended consequence of the earth first! movement... Oh Ed, Mr. Abbey, where are you now?!

Cool eruption video

Halema'uma'u (Kilauea, HI) has been erupting for a little while now, but this little blast today was captured on film. This is a night-shot video and the resolution didn't quite come through for some reason but its a great video none-the-less

Hillsborough Community College Geology(ish) field trip with the Amazing! Jim Wysong and ER Gammill... This was a formative trip for me deciding to be a geologist plus it carries the extra special tinge of ewy-gooey goodness of being the way Greg and I met... I'll spare the details but it was good ;)


'Ahh!! Sunshine! Shit I cant traverse basaltic rocks, Mandie! Help me!" Anyways, thats how I remember it going down...

Two of these people are still incredibly cool with each other


Greg you look soo dreamy as I drool down your neck! Click for full eyebrow ring goodness...
