Picture Of The Day

The Earth as seen from Mars:

This is the first image ever taken of Earth from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon. It was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the 63rd Martian day, or sol, of its mission. (March 8, 2004)
Dammit, I had my eyes closed. How about a heads up next time, Spirit?

Was my part of that dot facing Mars at the time, or was yours?

Where's Marvin?

Sorry. Everything I know, I learned from Saturday morning cartoons and from comic books. Thank God for Classics Illustrated.

Mine, magpie. That's me on the left there.

And I gained most of my knowledge of opera in the same manner, ex DLB.
