    Default Meteor shower at it's peak tonight

    Turn off the computer or tv and take the kids (or the wife) outside and see if you can spot any. Unfortunately the full moon will make it harder to see. It continues on for the next couple of weeks. We spotted a 5 or 6 one night last week.

    In the past year I've sat out on the tailgate of my truck and watched Air Force 1 and the International Space State fly over my house. It takes a lot to impress me nowadays.

    I'll take God's creation over man's creation just about any day.

    Cloud cover might make it hard to see tonight.

    “I’ll take God’s creation over man’s...”

    You should get that tatoo'd across your chest.

    I've never seen the space station fly over my house.

    I was just being a smart ass because it's not really flying. It is damn cool to see knowing it's moving that fast across the horizon but it's 250 miles away.

    I feel like we have already made fun of this. I also feel like we cannot make enough fun of this...
