Easy Like Sunday Morning

Enceladus, backlit by the Sun. The base images were taken by Cassini, but the composite was made by a non-professional astronomer.

Since I was at the Virginia State Fair yesterday and busy with sundry other things today, I don’t have many links to share today. I did note a preponderance of pseudoscience at the fair, though: “power bands”, vibration-based “weight-loss” systems, and the usual pseudopharmacopia of dietary supplements. I was even accosted by an astroturf organization lobbying in favor of mountaintop-removal mining while pretending to be an environmentalist/sustainable-energy group. I did have a lot of fun (when I wasn’t sighing over the stupidity of our culture) and ate half a basket of fried cheese — which makes up for a great deal, I must say.
