Comet Elenin--this decade's Hale-Bopp (for all the weird-ass speculation), with a bit of Shoemaker-Levy 9 (for the breaking apart part, except that Elenin won't be sucked into a close encounter with Earth, as was the case with Shoemaker-Levy 9 and Jupiter). Except that Hale-Bopp was a fabulous naked-eye comet, and Elenin is not going to be much of anything in a few weeks or sooner.

Here's the latest dirt on Comet Elenin from Sky and Telescope:

(By the way, God, if you're listening...I'm still waiting for that naked-eye supernova I've wanted to see since I was eight years old.)

She makes a point of saying those who claim it is breaking it apart are amateurs.

This, from the expert, right?

I'm going to trust the guys who spend their lives studying comets as opposed to Candy. If they say Comet Elenin is breaking up, it is breaking up.

I'm SO SICK of these people insisting on end-times explanations. This crap ruins or deeply affects the lives of innocent kids, including mine.

I think some people think this comet will collide with the earth somewhere on or around Dec 21, 2012. That's the next end-of-the-world date - the Mayan calendar ends on that day, apparently. Also, I think some are saying Nostradamus said something about that date also.

That 2012 date was mentioned by several people on that TLC special about those who take emergency preparedness to the extreme.

The Mayan calendar kills me. The Mayan civilization ended...there was no one to make the calendar go on when the civilization ended. It wasn't your average person who created and/or maintained such things. It was people who were rewarded for that job and upper class. As the civilization crumbled, so did the perks. As they struggled to live they kind of gave up on the cosmos.

Mayan's were also total heathens. They sacrificed humans and didn't believe in any one god. Funny how they sucked and were in the dark in that aspect, but their documented calendar is all good and fact and special enough to be reliable predictions for the future.

Would god tell the evil heathens the date of the end of the world yet not give them the rules for the right way to live?

I knew about SN 2011fe and was hoping it would brighten up enough so that I could borrow the boyfriend's binoculars and see it, but I'd heard that it had hit 12th magnitude and was now dropping, but I see that was wrong and the latest is mag 10.43 and still rising. It has a way to go before it hits 5 (naked eye magnitude).

(For the truly geeky among us: ooruri.kusastro.kyoto-u.ac.jp/mailarchive/vsnet-recent-sn/2456 << a listing of the observations of SN 2011fe's magnitude.)

But you guys-the above is ALL WRONG, because she now has a video up PROVING IT'S INTACT.

Crap, guess we're all doomed. I mean, those of us who arent' gonna get raptured, at least.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
