Moon Like A Big Pizza Pie

We astronomers call this sort of close full moon a perigee full moon. The word perigeedescribes the moon’s closest point to Earth for a given month. Two years ago, when the closest and largest full moon fell on March 19, 2011, many used the term supermoon, which we’d never heard before. Last year, we heard this term again to describe the year’s closest full moon on May 6, 2012. Now the term supermoon is being used a lot. Last month’s full moon – May 24-25, 2013 – was also a supermoon. But the June full moon is even more super! In other words, the time of full moon falls even closer to the time of perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth. The crest of the moon’s full phase in June 2013, and perigee, fall within an hour of each other.  http://earthsky.org/tonight/is-biggest-and-closest-full-moon-on-june-23-2013-a-supermoon

    I’m now throwing all of the nice things I wrote about Snowden under the buss.

        The last thing Snowden should have done was side in this situation with WikiLeaks and Julian Assange. If his intentions were truly pure, he would have had no communications with WikiLeaks considering how the US government feels about them. he now plans to flee to Ecuador, which indicates that he is of the same mind as Assange. I have always been critical of Assange and WikiLeaks as you have read over the last couple of years, by siding with them Snowden chose to lump himself in with them, when if it was a pure intention of his to leak that information, he would have faced the music- as he himself said he was willing to do, but we all know now that that was BS that served to gain him support, support which I can no longer show for him.

    This is a neat story I should’ve posted yesterday. Yesterday was the 200th anniversary of Laura Secord’s walk, which is like the Paul Revere’s ride of Canada. She walked 20 miles through the woods to warn the British in Ontario that she had overheard Americans in a tavern discussing an attack during the war of 1812. Thanks to her help, the British and the Mohawks won the battle and Canada remained part of the British empire. If not, all of North America might have been the United States.

      Laura Secord is a big deal in Canada. They even named a chocolate company after her. https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/1642271787/Logo_Facebook.jpg

      Canada dopes have some great historical figures, she being one. Let us not forget the Great William Shatner, an amazing actor he inspired people to reach for the stars. Also, and never to be forgotten is one of our greatest talented treasures. A young man with a voice of gold, whose broad range vocally inspires us all. where would we be without Justin Bieber? To that I’m not certain, but I do know that without him would would all be worse off.

    • What? Canada missed the opportunity to be part of the greatest nation on earth? That’s okay – I hear the Kochs are hard at work to remedy that. Canada must be assimilated… Yes, that was a warning.

    If you google image search Andreas Franke (the artist of the underwater photos) you’ll find more incredible compositions that you can search wallpaper sizes for. Great stuff.

    hey HH
    I’ve been finding the vanilla gay anime images, turns out Marshmellow like his gay porn, as boring and vanilla as his creepy 10 pages of anime girl romance trash with Nana from Jordan.
