As any space-probe-savvy reader knows, Cassini-Huygens entered Saturn orbit on June 30. Well, it’s been getting no rest since, sending back some very impressive and picturesque photos of Saturn’s surface, rings and satellites.
From the Saturn mission’s web site, there are some recent images — quite interesting and pretty ones — of Saturn and environs. Did you know Mimas looks suspiciously like a certain orbital space station everyone but Julien is familiar with?
Probably the best way to keep up with the goings-on of Cassini and his little buddy is to visit the JPL site from time to time, but an easier (and fun) way is to frequent Cassini’s LJ blog. Friend him (assuming you’ve got a Livejournal account – bleccch) and you’ll be kept up-to date. More or less.

- Ask for a gun
- Fill out the forms for your background check
- Wait three days
- Go back to the sporting goods store.

- If your application hasn’t come back yet, you get your gun!

Well, I never do that. No siree bob. Never. Nuh uh.
In unrelated news, I’m an idiot.
The ACLU are my kind of organization: just enough paranoia to be helpful. They recently put together a Flash video of what ordering a pizza may be like in post-TIA America. Check it out.
Come on, there’s gotta be something about “beasts walking like men” in there. Something about Dogs and Monkeys taking over the world, no?
It’s funny that these two news items appeared so close together… Are we going to see more anthropomorphic animals in the near future? Gosh, I hope so.
Ooh, I sense a Fark Photoshop contest coming on! :o)
Someone noticed something about Dodge’s logo… I’ve mirrored his page so you can bask in his brilliance long after he is bombarded by derisive email and takes the site down.
Or Dodge sends him a cease-and-desist letter. I wouldn’t be surprised.
I’m going to go puke now.
Not to mention the whole “erotic asphyxiation ceases to be fun once she’s unconscious” aspect of things.

“Well, Mr. Comita, the bad news is that your “new” minivan is actually pre-owned. The good news is that it’s roomier than you thought, able to fit eight full-size corpses. Which brings me back to the bad news…”
