Two New Earth's ? (CNN) ... & a 1902 "Trip To The Moon" ... from "Sci- Fi" to Sci that's "Fly" in 1.1 Century (Above & Below PT.5)

This Part 5 of the "Above & Below" series will look at a recent CNN piece on the possibilities of other Earth like planet's that may be able to produce and/ or sustain some life similar to Earth, and their not just talking about two here, they already suspect there may be hundred's, which shouldnt suprise us either. I mean ... just a child in 7th or 8th grade when they talked about planet's, orbit's, solar system's, etc ... I alwayz wondered if there could be planet's in other system's that are just the same distance from a similar sun energy in orbit, that may be somewhat like here?, perhap's plant's, animal's, or similar? Actually, it was one of only a few subject's in school as a kid that grabbed my atencion and could make me listen without boredom ... even though I scored highest in "math" as a child, I actually loathed and disliked math (which alwayz confused me, wondering why I would score so well in something I disliked? : ) But nonetheless ... this stuff is fun to me, and I love all the documentaries on the cable/ tele of this kind of stuff (not sci- fi though much).

They mentioned also the sci- fi French film classic here "A Trip To The Moon", so I went to YouTube to dig that up ... and what a treat this piece of film was (I never seen it before, so it was a suprise to me ... I mean, like this is some really old school flick : ) But just a look at what our idea's were like 110 year's ago as far as sci- fi ... to science, astronomy, and space exploration today that is not only real, but "fly" (cool) too.

It's still fucking raining, fucking rain. Fuck snow also, it make's my heat bill go up and I have to clear the driveway.

But the plow and chains are on the mower in case I have to do that.

I reckon Billy, that the weather though up there is what keep's ya'll's forest so beautiful too, which you get to enjoy. Yeah, I too bitch about rain and snow, but only because I'm spoiled living here in North Central Texas so long. The harshest winter's I was in was I would have to say Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo, & Toronto ... I remember waiting on the "L" (elevated rail/ subway connect) parallel Lake Michigan in January (I took the train to work up there), with wind chill's of 20/ 30 below zero and snow in the city nearly waste deep in area's. Town's on the Atlantic coast were not as harsh, such as New York City, Montreal, London, Glasgow, etc ... ya'll are pretty moderate there though actually, and moderate summer's. At the same time, I remember getting sunburned in January in Central Los Angeles ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh ... were stuck Billy! : )
