And they called these scrolls "Books..."

Apparently today, December 20th, is the 10th anniversary of the death of Carl Sagan. Some dude with a blog is organizing "The Carl Sagan Memorial Blog-a-thon."

I high school, me and my buddies had a science teacher who told us all to watch Carl Sagan's TV show "Cosmos." We all became Carl Sagan fans. Ironically? Could be. But nonetheless, we formed a "Science Club," and the name of the science club was "Cosmos." The only thing I remember us actually doing was creating possibly the worst homecoming float ever and later dumping it in front yard. R.A.S. was one of our friends who we actually called "R.A.S." We also sometimes called him "B.A.S."

Another thing we used to do, in class, was draw cartoons. One of our characters was our science teacher. (There's a cartoon of him on the blackboard in the background of the yearbook picture of "Cosmos," the science club.) And of course, Carl Sagan became one of our favorite characters. We'd draw him flying through space with a jet-pack, fighting his alien enemies, the evil "X-nots."

So that's my Carl Sagan tribute. Fond memories of high-school geekiness.


The title of this post is from Dr. Sagan's description of the Library of Alexandria, from "Cosmos."

I am shaken to the core. Who would have ever imagined you were a geek in high school???

My friend Lou briefly dated Carl Sagan's ex-daughter-in-law. She was a filthy, drug-sucking, guttermouthed punk rocker who had birthed Sagan's only grandchild. According to her, Carl devoted considerable legal power to preventing her from having contact with her child. (Which, in my opinion, was probably a very good thing.) She also mentioned that Sagan did much of his theorizing while stretched out in a lawn chair in the backyard at night, smoking reefer.

This is obvious as people can start online casino without having to make as higher investment as required to get started with land-based casino.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D
