There's been a fair bit of buzz on a petition to let Texas secede from the Union. The logic is (a) they want to, and (b) the rest of us would be better off without them. It's hilarious nonsense, of course, but let's look at why.

I've noticed that lately anything meaningful I have to say to my friends on Facebook has been drowned out by a million cute/funny things which I also post. Because how could I not? They're cute and funny!

In just a couple months, Venus is going to pass in front of the Sun - or more correctly, Venus will transit between the Earth and the Sun. This is the last time it will happen during your life. It won't be visible from everywhere on the planet, but will be visible in California, in the afternoon and early evening on May 6, 2012. It gets better: May 6 is a Sunday (coincidence???), so I won't have to explain to my boss that I'm leaving work early in order to go stare at the Sun.

Yesterday was Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. (Today might be also; depends on how you keep track.) Yelena & I decided not to go to services this year. I know, surprising, right? This from the guy who wears a kippah, keeps kosher, and blesses God three times a day? Allow me to explain.

You may have heard about this awesome computer game called Minecraft. It's actually been out for a while now, but I've held off on blogging about it, for one very good reason. I can explain why this game is awesome, I can link to a review that explains why this game is awesome, but the best writers say "show, don't tell," so I had to wait until I could really show you what makes this game so awesome.
