Ever notice those "floaters" in your eyes? The little darkened flotsam and jetsam floating in your eye? Usually they're most obvious when looking at a large expanse of a light color. This summer I was getting really paranoid that they were getting worse, and some days do seem worse than others, but I don't think it's quite the traumatic thing I felt it was earlier.

Quote of the Moment
Screw destiny! Destiny's just another word for inevitable. And nothing's inevitable if you stand up, look it in the eye and say, 'You're evitable.'

A sonic boom caught on film, via this article. It was a "one in a million shot" by Navy photographer John Gay. Well, that's the official story anyway. I suspect it might actually be a battlefield scene where our jets are being attacked by Giant Airborne Eggs from Space.
