Happy Carl Sagan Day (He Would Have Been 78 Today)

Happy Carl Sagan Day. It's his birthday -- he would have been 78 today. So go read 'Cosmos'. Then watch the TV series. Then go read and watch 'Contact' (the movie with Jodie Foster). Or just read the quote above, 'The Pale Blue Dot', in reference to the photo Voyager 1 took of earth from 3.7-billion miles away, at Sagan's request. Dammit, can we please just hold hands and sing Kumbaya and forget all our differences? For Carl?

Thanks to everyone who sent this, cosmos at the bar for everybody! Except me, I don't drink pink drinks (yes I do too I love them!).

There are Comments.

    Did you ever feel like you were put on the wrong 'pale blue dot'? Like maybe you belong on a planet billions and billions of miles away.

    'cause sometimes I look up at the stars and I wonder which one has the planet I'm supposed to be on, because I'm pretty darn sure it ain't this planet.

    Why would you make an account used solely to say first, and more importantly why can't I punch you for it?
