a broccoflower! yummmm!!!!!!!

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

Is that what Benoit Mandelbrot gets when he tries to grow a cabbage?

That was cool. For the third one, if I didn't know the source I would've guessed, "Windows Vista Desktop"

Thanks for the pics friend...

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

The fifth and final shuttle mission to the Hubble telescope is to launch today. The Hubble was (and is) one of the great space projects, because it made one aspect of the universe -- the visuals -- accessible to anybody. Looking into the 13-billion-year past is kinda neat too.

The Guardian shows off its top 20 images here, but better to go to the Hubble site itself and browse the gallery.
