I’m sick of just about everything this weekend so here is an open thread just because...need to de-stress. From about the only comment threads on Twitter I can even look at:
I don’t know why it’s the reaction of the dog that actually fascinates me the most.
I can only look at this picture from the Hubble Telescope Twitter thread and...talk about shock and awe.
To think that I wanted to be an astronomer once uon a time.
Comments below the fold.
Brillig's ObDisclaimer: The decision to publish each nomination lies with the evening's Diarist and/or Comment Formatter. My evenings at the helm, I try reeeeallllyy hard to publish everything without regard to content. I really do, even when I disagree personally with any given nomination. "TopCommentness" lies in the eyes of the nominator and of you, the reader - I leave the decision to you. I do not publish self-nominations (ie your own comments) and if I ruled the world, we'd all build community, supporting and uplifting instead of tearing our fellow Kossacks down. Please remember that comment inclusion in Top Comments does not constitute support or endorsement by diarist, formatter, Top Comments writers or DailyKos. Questions, complaints or comments? Contact brillig.
