Student Hostage from Yesterday is Interview

Details are emerging about the terrifying incident yesterday at a high school in Marinette, WI, where a 15-year-old student armed with at least two handguns held 23 classmates and a teacher hostage for nearly five hours before shooting himself as police came in.

None of the hostages were injured. The young gunman is hospitalized with potentially life-threatening injuries, the Associated Press reports.

Angeles Duran. Owner of our Sun.

After billions of years the Sun finally has an owner -- a woman from Spain's soggy region of Galicia said Friday she had registered the star at a local notary public as being her property.
Angeles Duran, 49, told the online edition of daily El Mundo she took the step in September after reading about an American man who had registered himself as the owner of the moon and most planets in our solar system.
There is an international agreement which states that no country may claim ownership of a planet or star, but it says nothing about individuals, she added.
"There was no snag, I backed my claim legally, I am not stupid, I know the law. I did it but anyone else could have done it, it simply occurred to me first."
The document issued by the notary public declares Duran to be the "owner of the Sun, a star of spectral type G2, located in the centre of the solar system, located at an average distance from Earth of about 149,600,000 kilometers."
Duran, who lives in the town of Salvaterra do Mino, said she now wants to slap a fee on everyone who uses the sun and give half of the proceeds to the Spanish government and 20 percent to the nation's pension fund.
She would dedicate another 10 percent to research, another 10 percent to ending world hunger -- and would keep the remaining 10 percent herself.
"It is time to start doing things the right way, if there is an idea for how to generate income and improve the economy and people's wellbeing, why not do it?" she asked.

okay - ya'll can spend as much or little time as u want on my present (and by "ya'll" i mean my gifter), but i must ask that i receive no physical objects that don't have a specific purpose. anything astronomy-related is fine, books about astronomy is fine, clothes that fit are great, t-shirts are good, nice socks. No kitchen-ware. a bonzai would be a great gift. i have one or 2 that's doing good. wouldn't mind a couple more. hmm...no nick-knacks...i haven't had a really nice winter coat in maybe decades. camping gear is good actually...gift-certificates are pretty sweet: for Amazon or a bookstore. thanks for listening and god bless!

For Hans: Sahara Hotnights - "Hot Night Crash"

Wednesday, November 3, 2010


Ok, have not been able to nail down any plans from the parentals for grabbing a beach house somewhere after Christmas this year. This is likely related to several factors (financial, availability, other commitments, etc). So, as they say, if you want something done, do it yourself; take the bull by the horns.

Here are some of my preliminary plans for Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidayz:

1) Thinking of hitting OBX over Thanksgiving for a few days to hopefully catch some wind. Will likely drive down from Grandma's house on Saturday before the Holiday. Pretty sure that I will then hit the D.C. area for Thanksgiving for a couple of days. Where??? Not sure, haven't been able to get any solid information from anybody on who's house people are planning on hanging at. As always, everybody is invited to join me at the beach, though I realize that it is unlikely that anybody will be able to do so. The OBX is ~6 hours from D.C. greater area.

2) Hans is going to the beach after Christmas...He doesn't know exactly where, but life is short, and the beach is a constant calling. Camping is cheap, and he will pay for a site or two for whoever wants to come with. Might also be able to talk him into helping out with other expenses, including, but not limited to, vehicle fuel, food, tolls, and bail money for getting arrested for streaking on the beach during daylight hours.

3) As a second thought for the long Holiday break, I would like to hit a cool windsurfing spot: the two that come to mind are Corpus Christie, Texas and the Baja, Mexico. This is a bit more tenuous than the beach following Christmas (i.e., not definite at this point), but again, all are invited, though I realize that most will be busy with work and life.

Now, time to work.
