well happy 3.14 day everyone. i guess only us diehard geeks get the joke as some of my friends are oblivious. i do have one friend who is upping the geek ante and says he is waiting for "tau day" 6.28. yes, i know and i did tell him that he and 5 other people will get the joke. lol for those not in on the joke,


sadly it is not such a good day for NASA and their families. a worker fell off the endeavour launch pad platform today and died from the fall. my thoughts and prayers to the family on this sad day as once again we are reminded that space exploration and  travel is dangerous. read the article for full details... http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/122486/20110314/nasa-endeavour-space-shuttle-launch-pad-fatality-death.htm

this just in, a third explosion at the japanese nuclear reactor. here is the translated article. i seriously hope you are all thinking good thoughts for them. http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=ja&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.asahi.com%2Fnational%2Fupdate%2F0314%2FTKY201103140140.html
