Pretty much the coolest thing humankind has ever built (sorry, pyramids), the recently refurbished Hubble Telescope, has sent back more awe-inspiring pictures from space this week. This one here is what it looks like when galaxies collide.
Because I like a nice "this thing looks like this thing" post (because I'm simple-minded and easily amused), I've been searching the internet for a suitable story to connect to the idea of "world's collide." Easy-peasy, right? You'd think there'd be something of at least a little interest. But Jay-Z's appearance on Letterman last night was lame and filled with forced laughter. I don't like the Grizzly Bear song featuring Michael McDonald as much some other people. (Maybe it'll grow on me?) And Ellen Degeneres replacing Paula Abdul as a judge on American Idol doesn't feel so much like "colliding" as it does a backward career step.
But what do I know? Look at those galaxies. (Galaxies! Entire galaxies, there on my computer screen!) Isn't it crazy how much they look like jellyfish? Wait. Ah ha! "A 41-year-old man was arrested on Monday at at Madeira Beach after witnesses said he repeatedly pretended to drown, then allegedly began tossing jellyfish at nearby teenagers." There we go.
