The Oxford Comma Game!

Name a group of three things, that have to be related somehow, now just three random things.

Then, DO NOT use the Oxford Comma! Hilarity ensues

Ex.

-a vibrator, a gun, and a penis- becomes -a vibrator, a gun and a penis-

-The owners, an acrobat, and a monkey- becomes -the owners, an acrobat and a monkey-

It helps if the first item is a group that can be identified by itself, or as an umbrella to cover the second two terms, as with the second example. This is not necessary, however, as with the first example.

Have fun!

Is that Togo? Ahh, Togo! Togo was a great dog. His breed is becoming increasingly rare, however! :( This is mainly due to more efficient breeds being used, but it is still a sad thing

"If we can’t write diversity into sci-fi, then what’s the point? You don’t create new worlds to give them all the same limits of the old ones."

Jane Espenson (from interview with Advocate.com)\

I dunno how many which ways this needs to be said

Two Alien Planets With Endless Oceans - Unlike Anything in our Solar System

“These planets are unlike anything in our solar system. They have endless oceans,” said lead author Lisa Kaltenegger of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and the CfA.

“There may be life there, but could it be technology-based like ours? Life on these worlds would be under water with no easy access to metals, to electricity, or fire for metallurgy. Nonetheless, these worlds will still be beautiful, blue planets circling an orange star — and maybe life’s inventiveness to get to a technology stage will surprise us.”

These two “Water World” planets orbit the star Kepler-62. This five-planet system has two worlds in the habitable zone — the distance from their star at which they receive enough light and warmth that liquid water could theoretically exist on their surfaces. Modeling by researchers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) suggests that both planets are water worlds, their surfaces completely covered by a global ocean with no land in sight.

Kepler-62 is a type K star slightly smaller and cooler than our sun. The two water worlds, designated Kepler-62e and -62f, orbit the star every 122 and 267 days, respectively. They were found by NASA’s Kepler spacecraft, which detects planets that transit, or cross the face of, their host star. Measuring a transit tells astronomers the size of the planet relative to its star.

Kepler-62e is 60 percent larger than Earth, while Kepler-62f is about 40 percent larger, making both of them “super-Earths.” They are too small for their masses to be measured, but astronomers expect them to be composed of rock and water, without a significant gaseous envelope.

As the warmer of the two worlds, Kepler-62e would have a bit more clouds than Earth, according to computer models. More distant Kepler-62f would need the greenhouse effect from plenty of carbon dioxide to warm it enough to host an ocean. Otherwise, it might become an ice-covered snowball.

“Kepler-62e probably has a very cloudy sky and is warm and humid all the way to the polar regions. Kepler-62f would be cooler, but still potentially life-friendly,” said Harvard astronomer and co-author Dimitar Sasselov.

“The good news is — the two would exhibit distinctly different colors and make our search for signatures of life easier on such planets in the near future,” he added.

“Imagine looking through a telescope to see another world with life just a few million miles from your own. Or, having the capability to travel between them on a regular basis. I can’t think of a more powerful motivation to become a space-faring society,” said Sasselov.

Kaltenegger and Sasselov’s research has been accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal.

whoa whos that guy

Once upon a time a falcon and a woman fell in love
He dealt with a devil to be human and be with her. But the devil tricked the falcon, who could never fly again.
And after the devil was gone, the woman snickered, took the falcon by the hand, and led him to a small airfield nearby where she signed him up for lessons, and a job probably
Five years later and they’re both about as happy as clams, expecting a kid I hear
