Most jelly these days is made of carageenan, which comes from seaweed. So you have the choice of pig bone or seaweed jelly. MMMhhh good.

The Kuiper belt should just be all mashed together into one big planet, and then tow it back to Earth so we can mine all the minerals out of it.

Us humans exist to plunder regions of resources! Whys stop with the Amazon?

Depends which kind you buy. The powdered sachet stuff is usually carageenan, but the old-school stuff that comes in sticky, gooey blocks is still generally non-veggie.

Besides, seaweed's nice! Haven't you ever had Japanese rice-crackers? :-)

I actually "rediscovered" the stars the other night. I was staring at them and I couldn't believe what I was seeing.


I know how you feel.
My sister bought a cheap 6" reflector telescope, and was brave enough to let me loose with it.
 After getting bored of looking at the moon, I tried to focus on a really bright star in the sky..but could never get it sharp.
 My sister asked what was wrong, and I pointed to the star and said I was getting a diagonal refraction across it.
 I felt such a prat when she told me that "star" was Venus, and the smeary line was it`s rings !! :oops:
  The best bit though, was looking into an a bit of the sky that looked completely empty to the naked eye. After a few secs of twiddling the eyepiece I was stunned..
 The view was just full of galaxies, totally surreal, just like the covers of some astronomy books that looks like a bad fake from Star Trek..
 I just stared for ages, it was just one of those moments where you realise just how insignificant all the crap in your life is.
On schedule, and suing

Wow :-)

I've always wanted a telescope, but my mum put me off, by telling me I'd end up like Patrick Moore, with one eye bigger than the other. :lol:

Well, at least you can say that you're not the prat - Venus doesn't have rings. :-D

Yea,
That`s the good thing about astronomy...you don`t really need anything to appreciate the nite sky...(er, except eyes)...
But a nice pair of 7x50 binoculars do help...better than a fiddly scope, in your case...

And for a beginner they are very useful to learn your way around...

A nice deck chair really helps...
Or, a mirror placed on the ground...(just look at the mirror, through the binoculars).

For those more technically minded, a `first surface`  silvered mirror is best, but i`ve had good results with a normal bathroom mirror, and binoculars fixed on to a tripod.

Take a look at the brightest `star` in the sky right now...
it`s jupiter, you should manage to see it`s four satellites easily...(they should be in a straight line).

" Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning, so they say
I myself don't talk about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning that's today.

And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on
And I don't know why I have to make a song
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning takes so long.

I met a man who had a dream he had since he was twenty
I met that man when he was eighty one
He said too many folks just stand and wait until the morning.
Don't they know tomorrow never comes.

And he would feel a new tomorrow coming on
And when he smiled his eyes would twinkle up in fun
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning never comes.

And I can feel a new tomorrow coming on.
And I don't know why I have to make a song
Everybody talks about a new world in the morning
New world in the morning takes so long."
