  6. The "Ah-hah!" was the Admiral's moment. The "Du-uh!" moment was mine. And...
  7. Forgot to post the URL for the article about Admiral Byrd: That's a "Du-uh!" moment.
  8. While reading about Antarctica, I found some interesting info on Admiral Richard E. Byrd. While reading about Admiral Byrd, I came upon this, beautifully expressed, "Ah-hah!" moment: Star trails seen during the Antarctic winter over the Harker Glacier on the island of South Georgia. PHOTOGRAPH BY SAM CRIMMIN, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC I thought it would be neat if others had ever been reading and had suddenly come across similar "Ah-hah!" moments, that they could share them here.
  9. Antarctica is calving!!! Read More About Big Iceberg Birth A view of the rift from the vantage point of NASA’s DC-8 research aircraft. NASA scientist John Sonntag snapped the photos on November 10, 2016, during an Operation IceBridge flight. Image via NASA
  11. A teacher gave her fifth grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day the kids came back and one by one began to tell their stories. Kathy said, "My father's a farmer and we have a lot of egg-laying hens. One time we were taking our eggs to market in a basket on the front seat of the pickup when we hit a bump in the road and all the eggs went flying and broke and made a mess." "And what's the moral of the story?" asked the teacher. "Don't put all your eggs in one basket!" "Very good," said the teacher. Next little Lucy raised a hand and said, "Our family are farmers, too. But we raise chickens for the meat market. We had a dozen eggs one time, but when they hatched we only got ten live chicks and the moral to this story is, don't count your chickens until they're hatched." "That was a fine story Lucy. Johnny, do you have a story to share?" "Yes, ma'am! My daddy told me this story about my Aunt Marge. She was a flight engineer during Desert Storm and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory, and all she had was a bottle of whiskey and a machine gun. So...she drank the whiskey on the way down so the bottle wouldn't break. Then she landed right in the middle of 50 enemy troops. She used the machine gun until it ran out of bullets! Then she finished the last of 'em with her bare hands." "Good grief!" exclaimed the horrified teacher. "What kind of moral could possibly come from that horrible story?" "Stay away from Aunt Marge when she's been drinking."
