I'm making it short today, like the lifespan of a white dwarf. It's been a good week for shiny objects floating through outer and cyber space. Here are some of the brightest shiners:
Paul Thomas Returns to Athletics Nation: Yes, Paul "PT" Thomas is back. How much of a star is this dude? His comeback post drew 22 recommendations in under 10 hours. Star power indeed.
Meteor Showers over the Bay Area: The Perseids are back and as good as ever. I enjoyed some great viewing along Skyline Boulevard last night. The shower peaked Wednesday, but there are still a few stragglers you can check out.
Vick Signs: The superstar of the 24 hour news cycle just went supernova. He's an Eagle.
Shooting Star at 300 bpm: The Happy Hardcore classic. This song is best experienced by listening to a 300 pound linebacker drunkenly singing the song at the top of his lungs. I do miss the ole college dorms sometimes. Btw, bmp is beats per minute.
Tiger Going for Gold?: It might happen. The International Olympic Committee is thinking of adding some new stars in 2016. Shed your tears for baseball, then wipe 'em away as you contemplate the possibility of Olympic golf and rugby. Sounds like the Scots were greasing some IOC palms.
Hope for society?: I googled images of white dwarves and amazingly a picture of a star came up first. It had tough competition, beating out pics of the popular marijuana strain and the roleplaying/board game magazine cover.
