    I love it. And it reminds me of a time when the Simpsons were funny enough to watch. And I remember this quote pretty well:
    "Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? At this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?"

    It`s kinda hard to take a nice clear picture when you`re scooting around at 60,000km/h; especially when it`s in a near-dark environment like, oh, space.
    Chances are, one of the astronauts took this with a typical P&S camera.

    "Global warming does not exist. Global climate change does, and it is NOT man made!"
    There was a graph I saw once. On it were the average global temperature and the years. The temperature change correlated with the appearance and disappearance of sunspots. The interesting thing was that the graph stopped before the industrial revolution. Someone had gathered the relevant data and extended the graph to approximately the present day, and you know what? It spiked waaaay past its highest previous level and the most recent part of it was about 10 times higher than it was before.

    In conclusion:
    Global warming doesn`t exist? My @55 it doesn`t.

    shneeblefish: Don`t believe someone just because they can make a graph.

    Little Known Fact: Canada creates the northern lights. We export them to various countries if the weather permits the transport of these fragile goods.

    Don`t tell anyone.
