London, Ontario - mid-winter in the snow belt.


Hamilton, at the tip of Lake Ontario. Steel town, with the Niagara Escarpment just visible from space.

Actually, that's a huge matter-antimatter explosion in deep space space heading our way, which they can't tell us about….

This photo was taken in space right after World War II (1946). A team of soldiers and scientists used a German-made V-2 missile equipped with a camera to capture this shot —making it the first photo in space.

That’s exactly what it is- it’s the Manicouagan Crater in Québec.

"I also think of Dryden's acid-drenched free-association riff called "A Small Package of Value Will Come to You Shortly," on "After Bathing at Baxter's": especially him barking out the phrase: "No man is an island/No man is an island/He's a peninsula"

(one of my absolute favorite double-entendres of all time--think of Florida--also look into the word "peninsula" for five letters in the correct sequence, and strip away the four unessential letters to reveal the hidden word). "

How big (diameter) is that thing? It makes Meteor Crater in AZ look like a zit!

Meteor crater is about 3/4 mile across! I wouldn't want to have been around when that thing rang our bell...

Don’t think a nose about to drip into an open mouth is ‘erotic. . .’
