  • Re: Optimistic Nihilism

    Generosity might be strategically effective or virtuous, but that’s not important. The point is that there is no good reason to love life or each other, yet we do.

    Stamps are part of my love for stationary. I try to match the stamp to the occasion or the card/envelope. <3 :glasses:

    One more geek out about it....

    Any stamp collectors here? The eclipse stamp is awesome!! All the post offices sold out here quickly, and it became a hunt finding them. I Finally just went to USPS and ordered online.

    What makes the stamp itself special is that it’s the first in U.S. history to be printed using thermochromic ink, which means it responds to changes in temperature. As you press your finger on the stamp, the image of a solar eclipse—based on a photograph from March 29, 2006, shot in Libya—becomes an image of the moon. It reverts to the original image as it cools back down.

    My house is full of science and astronomy heads...and we are READY! Watch/viewing parties are planned all over here in Memphis.
    We're going to Shelby Farms. Picnic lunch at noon...then the sky show...

    Anyone here got plans? Are you in the path? Watching the NASA live stream? Or the Science Channel coverage?

    Here's the link to NASA stream/tv when the time comes...
