A Few Random Links

It's been way too long since I've done this. You would think I'd have more links. Well, whatever. Have these!

“Without the imaginary, we can’t function” – In conversation with Neil Gaiman: A lovely little interview with Gaiman, whose The Ocean at the End of the Lane is definitely one of the best books I've read this year.

'Gravity' Spinoff: If you've seen the movie Gravity, you'll remember a scene where Sandra Bullock's character talks to someone back on Earth whose language she doesn't speak. This is the other half of that conversation.

How Many People Are There In Space Right Now": A wonderfully simple website that tells you how many people there are in space right now. If you scroll down, it will also tell you their names and how long they've been there.

  1. speaking of gravity. it got the best of me on Sunday I was playing basketball with a batch of 9 year olds at Seths birthday party and gravity pulled me to the ground. Well, I ended up with my left wrist broken in 3 places. The good news is I don`t have to have surgery. The bad news is, I have to wear cast for about 6 weeks. Thats my story and Im sticken` to it and as it turns out, I don`t feel like that little train that could. Next time write about soaring in the clouds

    1. Oh, ouch! My sympathies. But, dude, you should not be trying to act like you're nine years old! :)

      I hope it heals quickly and doesn't hurt too much, and I'm glad that at least you don't have to have surgery on it.
