Because blue light waves have the shortest wave length and they scatter the most when they hit the atmosphere.


Why does my black cat think the birds can't see her when she hides on the gray boards under the bird feeder?

The moon's in the news todaybecause it's supposed to look the largest in 18 years.

My random thought is that the moon looks much bigger when its near the horizon. However, if, when it's near the horizon, you bend down and view it from between your legs, it looks the normal size.

Doesn't look even a little bit Spanish to me - Poyans appears suspiciously French.

I am going to guess that Poyans is a name, in fact I would wager it's the name of the sire or grandsire (or both, we are talking thoroughbreds). Quotica I should think is a play on the word quotient or similar, rather like naming cars nonsense words like 'Integra'. How it is properly pronounced should tell you what language the owners were thinking in. "Coh-tee-cah" could be Spanish or French, "Kwo-tee-cah" could be Italian, Latin, maybe even Portugese, I wouldn't know with the last one. Pronunciation of the other words should narrow it down to just one choice. I love languages - so interesting.

I imagine they were going for "A bit of Poyans".

Could they both be parts of the names of dam and sire?  Maybe see if there's a racing website that lists the family tree?

So are you rolling in money now, Sugarlump?

If I ruled the world, Supreme Court justices who didn't like the majority ruling would not be allowed to write dissents that are longer than the original ruling.  I don't care that your butt sits on the highest bench in the US justice system, you can still follow KISS rules.

Everyone in America knows women have equal rights.  The ERA was a bit of a fizz-out, but the 1964 Civil Rights Act ensures that no one can be discriminated against on the basis of sex.  It almost wasn't part of the bill.

Want to know why?

Conservative opponents to the bill squeezed in the "because of sex" category to the list of prohibited classes at the last minute.  They figured they could divide the liberal vote, by eliminated votes from those who were willing to vote for the rights of minority (at the time, read that as black) men - but were chauvinistic enough not to want to give women of any color the same rights.

 It passed anyhow - and then they really had something to whine about!

Foodgasm!  *chuckles* (I love that!)

I love this too; it's so cute!

Why has my Mog-cat become so clingy?  Is it because he knows I'm sad about Tabatha-cat, or is it because he's worried that if he's not nice to me he'll disappear just like she seems to have done (in his eyes.)  And speaking of animals, why did my lone Guppy-fish decide to die the day after we gave him two Guppy-fish brothers in an attempt to stop him thinking he was a Molly-fish? And why do I still have fish in my unkempt broken-pumped garden pond when all the websites stipulate that fish die if you don't keep your pond clean and lovely?

Okay, enough randomness.  Off for some din-dins.
