And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Two for a Friday

Because I'm taking a short lunch today, only a few links.

Rachelle Gardner has some words about having a target on your back. She basically has two points about living life in the public eye (as writers with stories/books out in the wild, or as blogger), grow a thick skin and think before you criticize others. Pretty good advice.

And, because the spin will be ramped to insanity levels this weekend, a little onion humor. Tests are biased against students who don't give a shit. Not only a great piece of satire about education process, also a great send up of the "pundit roundtable" philosophy of "news."

edit This is just too cool, an animation about the discovery as asteroids for the past 30 years.

That animation makes me wonder why were aren't extinct yet.

Yeah, it is a little intimidating. But then, space is an awfully big place, and even a planet is infinitesimally small compared to the rest of it.
