Walking on Water?

more on this phenom later, but...

A little correction is in order, I feel.
That close encounter with Mars I urged you to be on the lookout for this week?
A total hoax. And curse the swine that perpetrated it!

The approaching "two moons" in the night sky phenomenon I alerted you to recently, supposed to occur on August 27? Mars reportedly passing so close to the earth it will appear in the night sky as a second moon from where we stand, our feet glued to the rolling ball of earth?

N O T !

It's an internet hoax that seems to have made the rounds every year since 2003 when Mars did in fact pass rather close to the earth, but nothing occurred or will occur anything like what's predicted by the proponents of this hoax..

Sorry about that...

But, here's something that is real. Walking on water, no lie. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. It's quite amazing, really. And (IMHO) no sillier than anything else anyone spends their time doing, It's a physics experiment, really. And a pretty cool one.

That's enough fuzzy science for today, kiddies.

If you're a fan of The Bad Plus (I am) or of modern music generally, check out Iverson's blog. Lots of cool interviews with great musicians and composers and he has interesting things to say.

hasta la pasta..

  1. Ya dingbat- it wasn't a hoax, they just had the date wrong. It was at 12:30 a.m. on the 28th. It came and went in less than an hour. Try telling us eyewitnesses we didn't see it!
