The coolest thing I've seen online in a long, long while, and a good morning meditation:
Go get your Cosmos dvds.
Kinda related - my new hero.
"Most people go through life recoiling from its best parts. They miss the enrichment that just a basic knowledge of the physical world can bring to the most ordinary experiences. It’s like there’s a pulsating, hidden world, governed by ancient laws and principles, underlying everything around us — from the movements of electrical charges to the motions of the planets — and most people are completely unaware of it. To me, that’s a shame."
There's something so inspiring about people like Carl Sagan, Carolyn Porco, or even someone like Steve Irwin...they're looking at the world with total wonder and want you to understand what's so wonderful about it. And that feeling comes across so strongly. It seems the more you know about something, the more awe-inspiring it becomes. How awesome is that?

An awesome set of comedy links:
Andy Richter completely dominated Celebrity Jeopardy. Lesson learned...listen to comedians, not news anchors...
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful fall.
