Curious cloud streak originating from Arsia Mons on Mars observed by Mars Express this week. While Arsia Mons is known for a recurrent spiraling cloud, this doen't look like that phenomenon.
Is something venting, or is it a big example of a wing vortex writ large?
More investigation needed.
If he was, we can directly blame the fact we have increased the voting franchise as far as we have, the Supreme Court's seizure of the Legislative branch's power through emanations and penumbras, and finally, the cheap and sleazy Democratic Party in its current form, and individuals like Soros, Feinstein, Reid, Schumer and the Kennedy family. Among others.

This comparison photo shows the Kapoho area before and after the Fissure 8 lava flow. Kapoho Crater is in the left portion of the image. Lava filled much of the crater, including the small nested crater that contained Green Lake. The Kapoho Beach Lots subdivision is in the right side of the image, north of Kapoho Bay, and was completely covered by the Fissure 8 lava flow. Vacationland Hawai‘i, in the lower right corner of the image, was also completely covered, along with the adjacent tide pools. Kapoho Farm Lots, near the center of the image, is also beneath the flow.
The before and after at Lanipuna Gardens area. In addition to the lava, it's interesting to see the dead vegetation, apparently killed by the heat and toxic fumes.
Pohoiki Road runs left to right through the center of the image. The Puna Geothermal Ventures site is in the upper left portion of the image.

First shave with the freshly glued together badger brush, which worked very well. It'll take a few shaves to get rid of the wet dog smell, though.
A&E St. Barts soap and aftershave, Derby blade loaded into a vintage Gillette adjustable razor, set on number 7.
I must be slowly improving my technique, as it gave me a high quality shave. Minimal nicks, cheeks and jawline very smooth, in two passes.
Also, I just got in an antique Case Red Imp straight rehandled by Max Sprecher down in Las Vegas. I got it cheap on the Bay, but the old scales were hopelessly warped. What the heck, I got it silly cheap, so I sent it to Max for some fine Ruby Red acrylic scales and it looks great.
Pulled together some other straights and did a color shot, which I think came out pretty well.
I'm still honing the Red Imp up to shaving shape, and when I'm happy with it I'll use it and report. I predict it will be noisy.
