Zeta Herculis is 35.2 light years away and was just enveloped by the outer surface of my light cone – my ever-growing sphere of potential causality – which began its expansion from Earth on April 21 1971.
Following this idea of Problogger Darren Rose, I’d like to thanks the following websites for giving traffic to me:
And here are the top ten countries that visited this quiet and zen space at the web:
- Great Britain
- South Korea
My traffic comes 66.7% from direct sources, 17.8% from search engines and 14.9% from referrers.
The video below is a good companion to my last post about the nothingness of man. It’s a japanese video showing what would happen if a giant meteorite hit the Earth.
This is a Celestia movie I made to a speech I gave in a University in Sao Paulo. The speech was about the Web 2.0 trend. In the end I’d like to show the audience that regardless all the technological improvement we achieved, we are nothing against the Universe.
This is a strange face found in the mountain range near Arequipa, Peru. It was found in Wikimapia while I was wandering around.
Here is the actual wikimapia coordinates.
Below are my Wikipedia contrails (type “en.wikipedia.org/wiki/” into your browser and see what autocompletes gives you):
- Bloomsday (the celebration from the James Joyce’s Ulysses book)
- Tags (doing a research to a speech I have to do)
- FreeMind (a very nice Mind Mapping software)
- James_Joyce (the Ulysses’ author)
- Vegetarianism (I’m a vegetarian, so I was probably checking some stuff)
The idea came from this post from Mat Webb.
This light cone idea, from Matt Webb, is a very cool one. Do you know a better way to learn about the nearest stars and track it from time to to me?
Next month I’ll complete three years of vegetarianism. I’ve never been a avid meat eater in the past and it could be one of the reasons for my sucessful transition to a vegetarian diet. My wife is a veggie for more than ten years and my three years old boy never ate meat; he’s healthy and his doctor always say that he has the same levels of proteins of the meat eaters.
Having a veggie wife turned things a little easier, as she helped me in the beginning. I think that the problem is not stop to eat meat (any kind), but learn how to eat other kinds of foods that give you a balanced diet.
I’ve just noticed that Dave Slusher is in a transition period right now and I wish him success! It’s a very nice time to try different recipes and new kinds of food. When I was in my transition period I noticed that I developed a new taste for strong green vegetables and red sauces. Probably it was because of iron concentration in this kind of food.
Yes, the body talks and is very wise to learn to hear what your body is trying to tell you. Learn to hear your body and you’ll be ok.
I’m testing flickr photo features, so the best image to upload there, in these times of superheros (X-Men, Supermen, Spiderman, etc), is the Super Natan!
Look below Natan and his super hero white underwear with buddy companions little dog and the giraffe. Plus extra superpower with red claw shoes!
Today, jun 16th, is the Bloomsday! I’ll be at Fnac to follow the celebration.
