Has NASA Discovered Extraterrestrial Life?

According to Kottke.org –

NASA will hold a news conference at 2 p.m. EST on Thursday, Dec. 2, to discuss an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life. Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution and future of life in the universe.

So, if I had to guess at what NASA is going to reveal on Thursday, I’d say that they’ve discovered arsenic on Titan and maybe even detected chemical evidence of bacteria utilizing it for photosynthesis (by following the elements). Or something like that.

The Most Boring Day Of The 20th. Century Was … (drumroll, please) … April 11, 1954

According to Cambridge-news.co.uk –

Every day something of significance happens, a person is born who is destined for fame, there is an event in the arts or sports, history is created. With 300 million of these facts fed into the “brain” of True Knowledge, Tunstall-Pedoe’s Cambridge company, the computer was asked: “What was the most boring day in the 20th century?”

… April 11, 1954 – a Sunday in the 1950s. Nobody significant died that day, no major events apparently occurred and although a typical day in the 20th century has many notable people being born, for some reason that day had only one who might make that claim: Abdullah Atalar – a Turkish academic.

100 Worst NFL Players Ever

This list is very interesting and rather long, but it can start many debates. No matter which team is your favorite, you’re sure to find at least one player from that team in this Hall of Shame. I’m especially proud that an old St.Louis Cardinal (Rusty Lisch) is number 1 on the list.

Stan Musial’s Greatest Accomplishment Occurred Off The Field

The greatest St.Louis Cardinal, Stan Musial, turns 90 Sunday, November 21, 2010. The St.Louis Post-Dispatch printed a special section for the occasion, which reminded me of Stan’s most outstanding accomplishment. It occurred but 50 years ago, and now seems to be impossible. After a disappointing season in 1959, Stan asked for and received a 25% pay cut. Can anyone imagine any of today’s athletes doing that? Stan “The Man” truly represents baseball and America at their best.

Happy Birthday Stan!
