In other news, have you been watching SHEER GENIUS on Bravo? Only the best tee-vee show about hairdressing ever. Sally Hershberger, I say yes. One might think she'd be a bitch but she's a pussycat. We love that shes a big old dyke who rolled into town demanding 600.00$ a cut, declairing herself top dog in a industry ruled by fags, where lesbians are the bottom of the food chain, that took balls. The highlight of every episode is when the guest celebrity hair stylist is introduced and all the contestants freak out and you're like hu, thats a celebrity?

This is called Made in Taiwan because it's covered with dozens of little stickers that say that.

Gliese 581, a planet 20 light years away seems to have all the right components to have water and possibley a life sustaining atmosphere. Dimitar Sasselov of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who studies the structure and formation of planets, said he suspected that this planet could be even more congenial for life than Earth. We're thinking the people who live there are twice as big and healthy?
The planet was discovered by the European Southern Observatory’s telescope in La Silla, Chile, which has a special instrument that splits light to find wobbles in different wave lengths. Those wobbles reveal the existence of other worlds.Until now, all 220 planets astronomers have found outside our solar system have had the “Goldilocks problem.” They’ve been too hot, too cold or just plain too big and gaseous, like uninhabitable Jupiter.
The planet is 14 times closer to the star it orbits. Dr. Udry (the lead author of a paper describing the discovery that has been submitted to the Journal of Astrophysics & Astronomy) figures the red dwarf star would hang in the sky at a size 20 times larger than our moon. NICE! And it’s likely, but still not known, that the planet doesn’t rotate, so one side would always be sunlit and the other dark ("night people" can live on one side and morning people on the other). Anyone sitting on the planet would get heavier quickly, and birthdays would add up fast since it orbits its star every 13 days. Gravity is 1.6 times as strong as Earth’s so a 150-pound person would feel like 240 pounds. That would be a problem, but if we wore giant balloon shoes it might make up for the extra gravity.
