Just For Fun

You may or may not have noticed that this past week-end marked the 1-year anniversary of the last Space Shuttle flight. When Discovery touched down at the Kennedy Space Centre on July 21, 2011 it was the end of an era. No more NASA Space Shuttle programme. Ever since the days of the Gemini space programme NASA has been using musical selections to wake the in-flight crew for another day’s work in space.

So, what were the last songs used for the last shuttle flight? Tech Republic has the answer. Enjoy.

NOAA – the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – has announced that aquatic humanoids do not exist and never have existed. That means that every mermaid from Ariel to Zelda is nothing but the product of overactive imaginations and mythology.

This is an outrage!!! The whole thing smells like a government cover-up and I would not be surprised if the CIA and/or the NSA were behind it all! How dare they lie to us! At the end of the day, we all KNOW that mermaids – and men – exist . . .right???

For the “official” tissue of lies, have a look at the NOAA website.

Even the supposedly reputable Time Magazine is in on the cover-up.

I don’t know about you but I’m going to write my Congressperson!!!

I’ve often thought that the networks should offer more coverage of the cheerleaders during college football games; Call it “cheer-cam” if you will. Make it a kind of picture-in-picture sort of thing. That way, you can follow the game and watch the cuties in short pleated skirts bouncing up and down on the sidelines at the same time.

Believe it or not, cheer leading is not confined to the US & Canada. You will find it at football matches in Europe and – in of all places – a Chinese airport. It keeps travelers enthralled during flight delays. For all the details, have a look at this story on CNN.com.

And China is not alone. While it is a good bit different from the American style, nonetheless there is cheer-leading at matches in Thailand. This story from CNN explains it all. Obviously, it’s something for the Thai “Lady-Boys” to aspire to.

Enjoy the stories and have a good day!
