What's real?

Mercedes-Benz Making Of from Spellwork Pictures on Vimeo.


Car lights left a wandering trail along the road to the Chilean Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory. Setting stars left the wandering trails in the sky. The serene view toward the mountainous horizon was captured in a telephoto timelapse image and video taken from nearby Cerro Pachon, home to Gemini South. Afforded by the mountaintop vantage point, the clear, long sight-line passes through layers of atmosphere. The changing atmospheric refraction shifts and distorts the otherwise steady apparent paths of the stars as they set. That effect also causes the distorted appearance of Sun and Moon as they rise or set near a distant horizon.

Running around in Portland Oregon this weekend

Lots and lots of great eateries.  Today's winner: Olympic Provisions

We had a fantastic food and a great time.  It's in an industrial district that adds that certain something in ambiance.  Don't miss it if you are in town.

Choosey Radical Progressive Vandal Moms Choose Jif

Why is it always the far lefties that get violent?  At least this time, it's just peanut butter violent, and it's blue on blue.
Christina Ferguson was arrested in Amherst Junction, Wisconsin after interrupting what turned out to be a meeting of a local environmental organisation, Tomorrow River Conservation Club.
Witnesses claimed the 32-year-old entered the meeting at 9:30pm holding a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif” peanut butter, shouting about how much she hated the Republican candidate.
When officers from Portage Co. Sheriff Department questioned Ms Ferguson, she claimed she hadn’t left her apartment that night, while allegedly licking her fingers repeatedly, according to the complaint. 
However, one of the meeting members identified her and Ms Ferguson admitted her involvement. 
When pushed as to why she had committed the offence, Ms Ferguson talked about “how much she loved Hillary Clinton and hated Donald Trump,” the complaint says.
