Dog Thoughts...

Its surface is covered in a sticky black substance similar to the gunk at the bottom of a barbecue.

It's 1.7 miles long. Its surface is covered in a sticky black substance similar to the gunk at the bottom of a barbecue. If it impacted Earth it would probably result in global extinction. Good thing it is just making a flyby.
Asteroid 1998 QE2 will make its closest pass to Earth on May 31 at 1:59 p.m. PDT.
Scientists are not sure where this unusually large space rock, which was discovered 15 years ago, originated from. But the mysterious sooty substance on its surface could indicate it may be the result of a comet that flew too close to the sun, said Amy Mainzer, who tracks near-Earth objects at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge. It might also have leaked out of the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, she said.

Ya Gotta Love Grandpas.... (From the email inbox)

John G. is 63 years old and owns a small business.  He's a life-long republican and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated.  With the stock market crashing and new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

John has a granddaughter.  Ashley is a recent college grad.  She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants.  Ashley campaigned hard for Barack Obama.  After the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other republican family members) received a big I told-you-so earful on how the world is going to be a much better place now that her party is taking over.

Having recently lost both roommates, Ashley ran short of cash, and cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3-bedroom townhouse.  Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her grandfather asking for some financial help.

Here is his reply:
Sweetheart, I received your request for assistance.  Ashley, you know I love you dearly and I'm sympathetic to your financial plight.  Unfortunately, times have changed.  With the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth
a bold new economic plan of our own..."The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan."  Let me explain.
Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning tax payers.  We have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had the fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc.  We have worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon.
But the plan has changed.  Your president is raising our personal and business taxes significantly.  He says it is so he can give our hard-earned money to other people.  Do you know what this means, Ashley?  It means less for us, so we must cut back on many
business and personal expenses.
You know the wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for more than 23 years?  The one who always gave you candy when you came over to visit?  I had to let her go last week.  I can't afford to pay her salary and all of the government mandated taxes that go with having employees.  Your grandmother will now work 4 days a week to answer phones, take orders and handle
the books.  We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even more income.
I'm also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer be working summers in the warehouse.  I called him at school this morning.  He already knows about it and he's upset because he will have to give up skydiving and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey the polar bears.
That's just the business side of things.  Some personal economic effects of Obama's new taxation policies include none other than you.  You know very well that over the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts, etc., etc.  With your vote, you have chosen to help others -- but not at your expense --
it is unfortunately at our expense.  If you need money now sweetheart, I recommend you call 202-456-1111.  That is the direct phone number for the White House.  You can also contact the White House here:
You yourself told me how foolish it is to vote republican.  You said Mr. Obama is going to be the people's president, and is going to help every American live a better life.  Based on everything you've told me, along with all the promises we heard during the campaign, I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account.  Have him call me for
the account number which I memorized years ago.
Perhaps you can now understand what I've been saying all my life...those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves.  What Obama supporters don't seem to realize is all of the money he is redistributing to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans (the so-called "less fortunate")
comes from tax-paying families.
Remember how you told me, "only the richest of the rich will be affected"?  Well guess what, honey?  Because we own a business, your grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich.  On paper, it might look that way, but in the real world,
we are far from it.  As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will have to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper.  You understand what that means, right?  It means that raising taxes on productive people results in them having less
money, less money for everything, and sadly that includes granddaughters.
I'm sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry.  The free lunches are over.  We have no money to give you now.  So, congratulations on your choice for "change."  For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash you have
received from us, just since you went off to college, and compare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next 4 (or 8) years.  I have not kept track of it, Ashley, because it has all truly been the gift of our hearts, but the comparison might be interesting.
Remember, we love you dearly...but from now on you'll need to call the number mentioned above.  Your "savior" has the money we would have given to you.  Just try to get it from him.
Good luck, sweetheart. 

Love, Grandpa

Hmmmm....Preliminary investigation suggests the individuals are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore, according to state police.

Yup... just walking around the resevoir.

BELCHERTOWN, Mass (WHDH) -- State police have questioned seven people they say were trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir near Belchertown early Tuesday morning.
State police said a trooper saw two vehicles parked on the grass at the reservoir’s entrance. The trooper saw seven people walking from the Quabbin Reservoir toward the vehicles.
The male individuals claimed to be chemical engineers. The individuals further claimed that they were recent college graduates, according to state police.

Hey Wirecutter, What do you get from this talk?

Flip Flops....

Flip-flops (also called zōri, thongs, jandals, or a variety of other names throughout the world) are a type of open-toed sandal typically worn in casual situations, such as outside or at the beach. They consist of a flat sole held loosely on the foot by a Y-shaped strap that passes between the first and second toes and around either side of the foot. They may also be held to the foot with a single strap over the front of the foot rather than a thong. The name "flip-flop" originated because of the sound that is made by slapping between the sole of the foot and the floor when walking.
This style of footwear has been worn by the people of many cultures throughout the world, originating as early as the ancient Egyptians in 4,000 B.C. The modern flip-flop descends from the Japanese zōri, which became popular after World War II when soldiers returning to the United States brought them back. They became popular in casual settings during the 1960s, 1990s, and 2000s, and some varieties have even found their way into more formal attire, despite criticism.
The use of flip-flops can result in many pains and injuries, including ankle sprains and broken bones. Some individuals who walk for long periods report pain in the feet, ankles, and lower legs. The lack of support provided by flip-flops often results in over-pronation injuries, caused by the foot slipping inwards further than normal. This can lead to flat feet and tendonitis. Other injuries that may result are due to the footwear's open-toed nature, such as stubbed toes, cuts, and bruises. Doctors recommend purchasing pricier sandals with thick-cushioned soles, as well as those that have a strap that is not canvas and that comes back almost to the ankle.

Here we see a nice pair:
