The Busy Center of the Lagoon Nebula
(Credit & Copyright: Michael Sherick )
Explanation: Stars are battling gas and dust in the Lagoon Nebula but the photographers are winning. Also known as M8, this photogenic nebula is visible even without binoculars towards the constellation of Sagittarius. The energetic processes of star formation create not only the colors but the chaos. The red-glowing gas results from high-energy starlight striking interstellar hydrogen gas. The dark dust filaments that lace M8 were created in the atmospheres of cool giant stars and in the debris from supernovae explosions. This spectacular portion of the Lagoon Nebula was created in scientifically-assigned colors from light emitted in very specific colors by hydrogen, silicon, and oxygen. The light from M8 we see today left about 5000 years ago. Light takes about 50 years to cross this section of M8.

I can’t believe this, it felt like Sunday yesterday and then suddenly its Friday. Time seems to be moving fast, especially when you’re doing nothing! (Or does it move fast when you’re doing something?!) Felt like trying something new in this post. So here goes, the time of the post, and the song playing on my Winamp, and the show on TV precedes my writings.
1:16 am, Sowkiyamma Kanne (AR Rahman-ARR, mp3), Willy Wonka Featurette (AXN).
1:22 am, Mannil Indha (IR mp3), Tamil Movie (SunTV).
While researching information in the Britannica Encyclopedia 2004 DVD-Rom I discovered that Mango (Mangifera Indica) is in the same family (Cashew family-Anacardiaceae) as the Cashew fruit and nut, Pistachios and Poison Ivy. What’s more interesting is that mango plants are polygamous—i.e., some have both stamens and pistils, others stamens only.
Mango is also the name of a town in Togo, Africa.
1.27 am, Poove Sempoove (Tamil mp3), Some stupid Tamil Movie (SunTV).
I self diagnosed me with early stage Parkinson’s, ADD (attention deficit disorder), Autism, Diabetes, Serious Depression and Schizophrenia (i hear voices, sounds), Short Sightedness, High BP, Hypertension, Serious Cluster Migraines and many more. Is it possible for a 26 year old male to have all this at one time? Or am I a victim of the Sunday Newspaper Medical Reviews?
1.35 am, Anbe Anbe (ARR mp3), SportsCenter (ESPN).
I need to loose about 15 to 20 kg within 2 months. I'm wearing a size 36 pants now, and last week when I went to get a pair of pants, the sales-lady asked me to slim down. It’s depressing.
1.42 am, Ooru Kanam (IR mp3), SportsCenter (ESPN).
Its just magical listening to IR singing in this song. Its from a Karthik movie. Have anyone watched the Toyota F1 ad in ESPN, its cool!
1.50 am, Yetho Moham (IR mp3), Some Stupid Tamil Movie (SunTv)
Experiment failed. I dont know what to write. Grrr...I wonder how some bloggers have loads to write and I can’t! Every time I think of something great to write, it’s either when I’m on bed trying to sleep, or on my bike on the road! And every time I sit down to type it out, I keep hearing echoes of my mom's voice at the back of my head, all the way from SP, saying "Nalla Padi, Nalla Padi" (Tamil for study hard) and my grandma's saying "you spent a lot of money doing masters, please study hard and take care of the family".
I think I’m just busy being a pretender, and that’s making me lazy in doing real stuff! I can’t get myself to sit and finish my thesis. Nothing is helping me to achieve that, and time is definitely running out. I have 3 more months, tops.
And I'm starting to hate people around me, my housemate is driving me crazy, he's a sadist and he’s pissing me off everyday (for the past 3 years!). The worst part is, I can’t get rid of him, been trying all the while. He just loves to mentally torture me. He’ll sit there staring at me when I’m doing something, or raise the TV volume when I’m listening to songs on my pc...
And how much more miserable can I get...? I have to beg to get my friends to come visit me, and the idiots who stayed with me last month haven’t paid their rent! --and ill post this post without editing! Dont care if any of them reads this!--
****** a poetic interlude ******
Days of Fog and Tears
Deep within endless jungles,
Voices echoed to the four corners,
Surrounded by fog and trees,
Those are sad callings of mourners.
******* back! ******
I have a question:
'If a man writing sex stories only writes from the viewpoint of females, does that makes him gay/ transsexual?
