They have reportedly found evidence of bacteria that does not have terrestrial origins. This advance report in the UK’s Telegraph is astounding. Dr Emily Baldwin sums it up best herself, “If the […]

Another Day At NIFS

Today was the big day. The first meeting was at 730am at the buffet. Yay buffet and that in turn was followed by the show from 9am to 4pm. I did a quick lap (about 5 hours) and near the end though it odd nobody called me. I opened my phone and I had 5 […]

I can’t remember which friend provided this, but I like it. Yeah, the Beatles are cool generation after generation. Second, this video is from Jose’s Facebook page: (Link gone […]

Weekend Nears End

To start off, I am so glad Jace and Grant came to visit. It’s just been too long since I’ve seen them. It was when the last Harry Potter movie came out. Really unacceptable. We all accepted the blame for this, and we have mutually resolved to not let it happen again. I felt bad […]
