be warned...the geek is coming out

no one else who sees this may care, but i think this whole mars rover thing is amazingly cool. just looking up and seeing that orange dot and knowing that there is something getting ready to crawl around up there that humans made and control and are receiving information from is pretty heady stuff.

if nothing else, check out the pictures that spirit is sending back. mars was incredible to look at back in august when it was close, but to see it like this is just beautiful.

it's also hilarious to read about the words and actions of giddy rocket scientists. they have no idea (probably) how much they promote the strereotype. good stuff.

i can hear ogre yelling NERDS!!!!!
