It was a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse. So it could have been a neighboring system. Because when talking on astronomical scales, the vicinity of a star can cover a tremendous amount of space. After all, space is big, extremely big. You wouldn't believe just how big it is...

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, BEETLEJUICE
Nope, nothing happened.
How about Hastur Hastur Hastur?
Nope. Still nothi...
It's worse than this. You're denied the rights to even use WHAT YOU PAID FOR in the way you wish. Witness Kindle books as one example. Want to read them in the reader of your choice, on the device of your choice? Sorry, can't do that, and DCMA outlaws decryption tools.
And I reclaim the ability to read them on any device I choose via Calibre and any other appropriate tools.
Why? Because fuck you. That is why. (addressed at the planet's owners; not you, chipschap)
Well, a company that charges ten thousand US dollars for a network cable may easily pay very good money to have favorable "reviews" and "professional physicists" endorsing the "magical properties" of the product. As a non-American I am surprised as you Americans allow criminals freely sell products that are clearly scams like this.
Anyone purchasing one of these should be fully capable of doing their research and determining if this is how they wish to spend their money. It is not like this is a life or death matter. It is the customer's money to spend as they see fit. The buyers only have themselves to blame if they decide later that they wasted perfectly good money on these cables.
If the information is freely out there to be easily found to counter what the alleged paid reviews claim, it really isn't a scam. Buyers have all the protection they need here. It is called the ability to search and learn for themselves before deciding to buy or pass.
Now, if we described stuff by it's percentages of fire earth air and water and spirit...
shouldn't that be fire, earth, air, water, and Leeloo?
How about the clack of the dial on a TV as you change the channel, or the THUNK of an 8 track player as it switches to the next channel?
Netflix is obligated to do this to maintain its licensing agreements with the Media Mafia.
Yeah, I understand that. What I don't understand is why the big media conglomerates put such baffling restrictions into their licenses in the first place.
Do sociopaths need a reason other than the desire for control?
If the Pointy Haired Boss had known about this, his scheme to breed owls for fuel for his SUV may have worked better.
And on that note, I am now going to have stuck in my head over and over, a little tune I recall my dad singing regularly back when I was a young'un.
o/~ If the ocean was whiskey, and I was a duck. I'd dive to the bottom, and never come up... o/~
Hmmm... Time to see if I can score a good copy of Rye Whiskey now on a 78 for him for his birthday that is coming up on the 12th.
I went with Diet and Exercise for 2015.
I'm already doing fairly decent at making and saving money this past year, and really have no need to find a relationship. As I close in on the completion of my 47th trip around the Sun, I feel I am blessed to not have ever had to deal with such hassles, especially considering that would be detrimental to the bit about saving money, which is needed to live comfortably ever after.
Would it be too much to inform the curious readers as to where in the sky this galaxy is located?
It's been a while since I had any, but I don't recall them putting the full name on each piece, so no & for reference.
Sure, this can sort by colors. But, is it capable of filtering out the Ws?
This. LOTR was pretty much flawless...
It would have been flawless if they had shortened the extended good bye scene, and wrapped up the business with Saruman and Wormtongue, which resulted in the Hobbits effectively becoming heroes of The Shire.
I will complete my 48th trip around the sun on the 20th of next month, and I am still not feeling any significant aging effects.
I think my secret is being happily single and not having any kids.
My 4GB iRiver Clix is still working fine as the day I got it back in 2007. Been meeting my needs for music when I am on the road, and I am still a long long way from filling its memory up.
And when I am selling this sort of stuff on the 'bay or on Amazon, non Apple players seem to do quite well for me, especially various flavors of the SanDisk Sansa line (they need to make a player called the Arya, I think). Then again, Walkmen, Discmen, and some of their Panasonic and RCA counterparts have pretty much become bread and butter products for me on both sites as well. Go figure.
