Our Beautiful Blue Marble

On December 7, 1972, unknown numbers* of people photographed the moon as a small man-made, man-filled vehicle traveled toward it. Only the three men aboard were able to capture the event from the reverse perspective.

This is our home. It is, at this time,** the only one we have.

Since a picture is said to be worth a thousand words, we're going to stop here and let this image speak for itself.

Today's exercise: Marvel at our beautiful blue marble.

Next: The Viking Hordes of Heavner Oklahoma and how where you live might not suck as badly as you think. (Yes, Frenso, we're talking to you here, too.)

*Though we can say definitely that no member of the Yummish Council is included in that number as one of us had a hot date that night and the other was -2.5 years old.

**Ahem... We believe we were promised colonies on the moon by now... and jet packs. Let's make with the good grades in math and science, you young folks. It's up to you.
