I will have to say that the results from the camera launched from Cassini to Titan's surface was a tad disappointing. It seems that Titan is a moon teeming with methane gas. :P

The blue ring around uranus is caused by producing green waste.

C'mon guys, 20 minutes and no bathroom jokes?* Am I the only one with a 12-year-old's sense of humor?

Re: New ring around Uranus is blue, scientists find

OK. so serious question....I have an oak tree in my yard that is about 14 inches in diameter and 50 feet high. Tall and narrow because of another bigger oak close to it . Has a natural bend toward the house and it needs to come down now. So in addition to hooking a small truck and a rope to provide a directional bias for the fall, how do I cut the base of the tree? Notch it where? Cut it through where?

I'm disappointed, too. If I had more caffiene I might come up with...um....

Edit: See, I haven't had enough caffiene...the pic I attached only turns the water blue while you're cleaning.

Edit 2: And now I double-attached the image! Oops. I'll try not to post until I'm more awake.

It's blue because I was eating blueberry ice cream and I'm lactose intolerant!

Gpax7, just before you get ready to cut that tree down make sure you supply your neighbor with a video camera. If you don't want to end up on AFV I would say call a professional or if the tree is near telephone or electrical wires call them and see if they will do the job.


okay back to the topic at hand..... Thanks thefed for making me spew my mouthfull of water on the keyboard.

Gassy, methane laden moons and lactose intolerance. There's a nice correlation

I stayed out of this one because uranus is just too big and deep a subject for a Friday morning. But, when you throw methane gas in, I am interestred because I've always been into self flatulation.

We got a sunny day yesterday and I spent most of the day doing long overdue yard work and then I slept until 9:30 this morning.

There's a lot of guys on this thread that are sooo anal, but on a bright note, not apparently retentive...
