looking together

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.

Rescue Ink

Image from's cafepress shop

A friend of mine sent me a link to this organization that I think is awesome. Rescue Ink is a group of guys who look like they'll beat the crap out of you. They're actually a group of guys who love animals and try to help and find homes for abused animals. I love it because they could probably step into any situation to help an animal, where I might be a little more hesitant. ;P I also love that they speak out against puppy mills. Be sure you check out their About Us page to see the profiles of everyone from Johnny "O" to Des "the Cat Man". :)

Ninja Cat

We saw this video on Leno the other night. Cats can be so awesome, funny, and a bit creepy, all at the same time.

ISS Tosses Out the Garbage

Image from has an interesting news item. Over a year ago, an obsolete ammonia reservoir the size of a refrigerator was tossed out from the ISS. It has been circling the Earth ever since and is due to reenter the Earth's atmosphere soon.

From their email newsletter:
If predictions are correct, the "Early Ammonia Servicer" (EAS for short) will turn into a brilliant fireball as it disintegrates in Earth's atmosphere during the early hours of Monday, Nov. 3rd. Uncertainties in the exact reentry time are so great (plus or minus 15 hours at the time of this alert) that it is impossible to pinpoint where the fireball will appear. At the moment, every continent except Antarctica has some favorable ground tracks.

Go to for updates and check out their Satellite Tracker to see when a flyby might occur in your area (worldwide). Pretty cool!
