Comprehensive diagram of spaceships. The ISS is included on the top right, in yellow, for scale.
It’s actually near the top left, in a yellow box - you have to go to the DA page to actually see it.
I was wondering about the Doomsday Machine from ST:TOS - it’s actually one of the small to medium ones.
The Tardis is not included as it is both too small and too large.
Angry comic from an angry Californian D:
btw everyone, California is in a drought. Not cool. Literally not cool. :C
i hope that, wherever my hair ties go, they’re happy. that’s all that matters
Aww. My dear departed Bob, best cat ever, loved to fetch hair bands. Also the little plastic rings from milk jugs. He also loved to go on walks with us, and jump on the heads of golden retrievers.
Jumbo Rocks Campground, Joshua Tree National Park
Camped there quite a few times as a kid. So fun climbing all over those rocks. It was a national monument, then.
I’ve said before I have Murderface’s hair - I guess we wear the same undies, too. She’s got more of a waist than me tho’…. ;p
people not in CA: ‘september is the start of autumn! it’s so nice, it’s chilly and i can wear sweaters/drink hot beverages while watching the leaves turn red/orange/whatever!’

There are two seasons down here
EVERYTHING IS ON FIRE
Hemet is out in the desert. Los Al is a couple of miles from the ocean.
And it’s not even blowing Santa Anas. :p
Don’t worry, we’re pretty used to our leaves not changing til New Years…
Sea cucumber, it’s a rare delicacy in Japan and subject to poaching. Dried sea cucumbers cost upwards of $300 per 100 grams.
Again, not a sea cucumber; a gastropod. That’s a nudibranch - very pretty shell-less snails who keep their gills (branchae - those white-tipped projections on the back) uncovered (nudi). That one looks a bit pink, but there’s a similar translucent white one off the coast here that’s called a wedding-veil nudibranch (Hermissenda crassicornis). Many are very brightly colored.
Here’s a sea cucumber.
(there’s actually a fairly decent-sized fishery for sea cucumbers here in California - if the above is true, the fishermen here don’t get anywhere near that price for them.)
(via Blog Post | Today: Why Does Nobody Make Little Trucks? | Car Talk)
Remember those Datsun mini-trucks that used to be around? Where did that class of trucks go? It seems like all you can get now is a full-size F-150 or similar. Is there anything like those old Japanese mini-trucks still on the market, or should I start shopping for a classic El Camino? What happened to the small trucks?
Makes me even sadder we had to give up my first vehicle - a ‘69 Datsun Pickup that I’d always hoped we’d have the money to restore. My family had owned it since the beginning, and after college, my dad and I rebuilt the engine together so I could have something to drive to work. When we moved recently, our apartment didn’t have a garage so we had no place to store it; my husband junked while I was at work.
My first new vehicle I ever bought was an Isuzu P’up. I was working as an fisheries observer in New Hampshire and needed a vehicle I could throw biological samples in the back of. I fell in love with it because it was lavender - the first time I’d ever seen purple as a stock color (when I went to the New Hampshire DMV to register it, they didn’t even have purple in their database, and said I had to call it blue or gray). I don’t think they even sell Izuzus here anymore (also sad - we brought youngest fry home from the hospital in an Isuzu Trooper).
netflix only has star trek movies 2, 3, 4, and 7 DD: and the animated series…
watch animated series first or do i need to hunt down movie 1??
I wouldn’t think it really matters - they’re not really related. I’ve been meaning to rewatch the animated series myself, although my kids complain about how horribly animated it is (think wooden 70’s Hanna-Barbera, with the repeating backgrounds and same soundtrack every episode). Although I always liked the stories. And Lt. Mress. And Spock’s sehlat.
