perclexed posted a comment about the bingo card I jokingly shared with her early on in the postings, but this has some changes so people can actually win. (Card should also contain lobsters...)

ETA on 12/31/15 - BINGO! Three people called BINGO within an hour (well, two) of each other: LyricaXXX, Wendymr, and BlueIris4. Congratulations!

owlbsurfinbird

Author: owlbsurfinbird

Summary:
Robbie's stomach churned. "But what's wrong with him, d'y'think?"
Laura glanced first at the table, and then at him, her eyes sad and kind. She reached for his hand. "He's been prescribed morphine, Robbie. Does the reason why really matter?"

Notes: I didn't make it by the deadline to post for the Lewis Summer Challenge (despite the kindness of the mods moving my posting date out for me by a couple of days, I just couldn't finish on time), alas!

Perseid Meteor Shower-Things You Don't Want to Hear in the Desert
owlbsurfinbird
"The ranger says to watch out for rattlers."
"I left the camera bag at home."
"Hey! I have cell service!" (Opens phone, ruins everyone's night vision)
"I bumped the department telescope. Where's Cassiopeia?"
"We're out of wine."
"Shh. Did you hear that?" (sound of slithering)
"Oooooh." (long meteor trail)
"Aaahhhh." (many meteor trails)
'HOLY FUCK! IT'S A SNAKE! OH MY GOD!" (very small rattler peeks out from under rocks)

And this is why, at 2am, several vans of students and faculty and families left the perfect viewing sight to trundle down the road to join the masses. Best viewing in years, though. Still going on tonight--1am-3am PST good time for viewing, though some bigger meteors later on.

Look up at the night sky. Perspective. It's awesome. And watch for snakes.

We Killed HitchBot, The Moon Photobombed Earth, and Jon Stewart is Leaving Tomorrow

Watch the moon photobomb the earth--GIF. I just needed to remind myself that even though we are losing Jon Stewart tomorrow, and even though HitchBot survived thumbing across three countries before being beaten up and left for dead just 300 miles into the US, at least we in the US have NASA...

...Which will see its funding cut next year by $250 million. USA! USA! USA!

(Poor HitchBot.)
