Is it God? Neil and Michio

Nobody Flashes that Nobody Knows

I like to listen to these two try to explain GOD. Tyson is not the intellect of Michio, but he loves to hear himself think out loud, and yes, he really messed up the Pluto question, and is an Obama follower, so right there, you HAVE to question his logic on most anything.

Yes, yes, discuss God, but I think the big mistake they all make is thinking God is “Human.”

Ha ha ha ha…Okay. If he is, that would explain a lot of those hurricanes, or even Nadler.

God…just is. We all feel it. Like you feel the end of your toe.

To me, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that science can fit perfectly with God.

And why the great intellects can’t get it, is because it’s just too simple. (Not to mention they love to pontificate.)

Anyway, it’s Sunday. Enjoy!

(P.S. I love the way Michio makes everybody know he thought up String Theory. It’s smart to make sure everybody know your successes, right Mr. President?)

Nobody’s Fool: Taylor Wilson

Nobody’s Fool or….Nobody Gets Email:

He was just a kid when he started, but not since Edison and Tesla has a young man come about with such great potential.

Taylor Wilson: Remember that name. I’d never heard of him before I got this email:

Taylor Wilson garnered international attention from the science world in 2008 when he became the youngest person in history to produce nuclear fusion at just 14 years old, building a reactor capable of smashing atoms in a plasma core at over 500 million degrees Fahrenheit – 40 times hotter than the core of the sun – in his parents’ garage. And this all happened after he built a bomb at the age of 10. As a child in Texarkana, Arkansas, Taylor became infatuated with nuclear science after trysts with biology, genetics and chemistry. At age 11, while his classmates were playing with Easy-Bake Ovens, Wilson was taking his crack at building a particle accelerator in an effort to makes homemade radioisotopes.

And he did it all by himself. He skipped college, thank GOD that he did, because they would have only damaged him and wasted his time.

He’s 23 now, and let’s hope they let him soar….so…read the rest of his fascinating story here.

And Yes! Congratulations Taylor Wilson! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for giving this nobody hopes for the next generation after us.

Move over all you tech guru’s: Taylor will be schooling YOU soon enough.

(Thanks to ‘g’ man.)

You Want REAL Progress? Ask the Dutch

Nobody Reports

I read today that Holland, (In the September issue of National Geographic) has done something that is pretty fantastic. While our politicians are basically busy damaging our country beyond all recognition, and robbing her people of a decent living, little Holland has been working.

Little Holland has revolutionized how to grow food. Cheaply, and without bird killing worthless winds mills, solar panels, Monsanto, or even gas. They use the natural thermos energy underneath the earth to heat their greenhouses.

Here’s some facts:

Since 2000, family greenhouse farmers in Holland have reduced dependence on water for key crops by as much as 90 percent. They’ve almost completely eliminated the use of chemical pesticides on plants in greenhouses, and since 2009 Dutch poultry and livestock producers have cut their use of antibiotics by as much as 60 percent.

Holland is the world’s number two exporter of food as measured by value, second only to the United States which has 270 times it’s landmass. More than half the nation’s land area is used for agriculture and horticulture. Some of these greenhouses cover 175 acres.

While our politicians were spending millions funding electric cars and windmills, and wasting our money on Solyndras, Holland has invented, how to grow food indoors, without depleted soil, and they produce all their own energy, and fertilizer and they even manufacture some of the packaging.

The people from all over Holland get together once a year and they have come up with this. They use natural bugs instead of pesticides to keep the plants healthy. And they have their own bee supply. This tripled the crop as opposed to plants that are subject to pests outside.

In other words: This is the REAL deal. This is real progress. This shows that even if climate change was REAL (which it’s not) no problem.

Think of how America could do this: Our crops would not be subject to floods, hurricanes, droughts, tornadoes…and we’d all be eating healthier food, not to mention the food prices would come down.

We could make so much food we could feed the entire county of starving Venezuela.

Of course, there IS one little reason why it won’t happen: MONSANTO.

Do you think Monsanto is going to give up its trillion dollar, GMO, fertilizer, seed monopoly?

That’s not going to happen. (Oh, Holland makes it’s own seeds too…the ones NOT done in a lab)

It’s really an amazing article. If you get a chance, read it at your nearest newsstand.

Little Holland will someday feed the whole world.

Now, if they could only invent a big giant bug to take out Monsanto.

Nobody Will Get To See TWO Solar Eclipses!

Nobody Flashes

I’m pretty excited about this…this year’s solar eclipse is going RIGHT by my house. And THEN, in just 7 more years, ANOTHER one will be going right by my house.

How lucky can you get?

So, IF you read that I have committed suicide within the next 7 years, –be rest assured and say to yourself, “She was MURDERED, by the deep state, because Joyanna would never have missed that second eclipse.

You witness to that true statement.

I’m a big kid when it comes to these things. How about you?

Global Warming is Real, Men and Women’s Brains are Equal, and Elvis is Alive

Nobody’s Wins

Who would have thought, that in our lifetime—- that a whole race of intellectual idiots, would try desperately to change, what historically has been know since Lucy walked on the African plains, the fact that that men and women are really VERY different. Not so much say the intellectuals. brains one

It’s almost as if we all woke up one morning and the Washington Post declared that the earth did not rotate around the sun, sleep is not good for you, Marilyn Monroe was not sexy, and if you plant a tomato in winter, it will grow by spring.

It’s bad enough that they want to brainwash our babies from birth to be little state moronic progressive slaves—- now in their quest for humanity to all be “equal”— they want us all to forget our genders. (Don’t look down.)

Not only are the elites of the world trying to socially engineer us all to believe that Angelina Jolie really can take out over 100 men with leg kicks, kissing the same sex is fun, and every religion has the same equal value, they are now trying to convince us that men and women’s brains are actually, not much different! Some dweebs that no doubt are also working for Al Gore, have published the news that they did some brain scans and found out the amazing news.

From Drudge:

This means that, averaged across many people, sex differences in brain structure do exist, but an individual brain is likely to be just that: individual, with a mix of features. “There are not two types of brain,” says Joel.

If a neuroscientist was given someone’s brain without their body or any additional information, they would still probably be able to guess if it had belonged to a man or a woman. Men’s brains are larger, for example, and are likely to have a larger number of “male” features overall. But the new findings suggest that it is impossible to predict what mix of brain features a person is likely to have based on their sex alone.

Joel envisions a future in which individuals are not so routinely classified based on gender alone. “We separate girls and boys, men and women all the time,” she says. “It’s wrong, not just politically, but scientifically – everyone is different.”brains three

What a bunch of crock. Scientifically? Really? I want to see Hillary beat up Obama, don’t you? Okay. Bad example. How about Chris Christie?

Calling doctor Carson…Calling doctor Carson….Calling Dr. Carson…

He’s not here: So, let’s go look at the differences of the male/female brain from another source: From the book: What Could He Be Thinking? How a Man’s Mind Really Works by Michael Gurian (p.11)

Differences in spatial: The male brain has developed over millions of years toward a bioenvironmental trend of hunting and building. His brain, due to the surge of testosterone in the womb and again at puberty, are partly responsible for the male’s increased reliance on spatial and mechanical strategies in the brain. These surges had a special effect on spatial functions in the right hemisphere of the male brain.

Differences in verbal’s: Because the male brain is devoting more cortical areas to spatial, it tends to devout  less cortical areas to word use and word production than the female. This is why a man will tend to spend his free time tossing a football or playing a video game, whereas a woman might chat on the phone or curl up with a book.

Connecting the right and left hemispheres of our brains is a small bundle of nerves called the corpus callosum. This set of nerves allows cross talk between the two hemispheres. In men, the corps callosum is, on average, about 25 percent smaller than in women.  The male brain does its language in the left hemisphere, while women use six or seven cortical areas of language in both hemispheres.

Differences in brain chemicals: Men has less serotonin than woman. As a result, men tend to act impulsively to a greater degree than women. Men have less oxytocin than women., the ‘tend and befriend’ instinct.

Different bonding strategies: Men bond without talking, doing action, like playing basketball. Women bond by talking.brains two

Action first, talk second: Lower levels of serotonin and oxytocin contribute to the male brain’s biological tendency to choose action first and talk second. The male brain also does not hear as well. The male brain respond more quickly to more obvious visual signals in action. (JAMES BOND)

Hormones; Men have up to twenty times more testosterone than women. Testosterone affects the formation of the male brain, the size of the corpus callosum, the spatial activity in the right hemisphere and hundreds of other qualities.

The amygdala is larger in men than women, leading to increased aggression.

The hippocampus, the memory center,  is larger in woman than in men, there are more neural pathways from it to emotive centers in woman than in men.

And my personal favorite: Women’s brains don’t rest. (zone out, take a break) the way men’s brains do. There is 15 percent more blood flow into he female brain than in the male, with more brain centers lit up in the female brain at a given moment than in the male.

In other word…when you ask a man what he is thinking about, and he says…”Nothing”…It’s true. And that’s why I think whoever did this stupid study, was probably a bunch of men, who were really zoned out in front of their XRAY scanning machines and the football game came on.

Sure, there are cross brains: Women who are great at math, men who LOVE to talk and are really good at it, but the majority of us are just born what we are…female and male.

And to try to act like there ARE no differences in the species is about as ignorant as saying there really is no moon in the sky.Eagle eyes

The only way you are going to get the ‘gender’ equality that they want, is if you pump male hormones into a female fetus, and vice versus….but you still won’t have a true male or female.

Only years of evolution will change that…and so far…if the elites think that they can change millions of years of evolution, then next time they say men and women are really equal, you might ask them HOW that evolved again? At what moment did the man stay in the cave and sleep while the woman went out and hunted the saber tooth tiger?

And they claim WE are not scientific.

The people that are running the world are REALLY screwed up.

Now, excuse me while I got back to reading my book.

SOMEBODY Owes Pluto an Apology.

Nobody Flashes

Well, now that we can all rejoice that the United States pulled SOME kind of space success off, (Actually, America has done really fantastic stuff)

I would like to know when the dweeb who INSISTED a few years ago that Pluto was NOT a planet, it was just a worthless piece of rock, and therefore should be taken off all school maps for little kids…. Obama vote

When are THOSE guys, going to apologize?

Pluto, it seems, is and always has been…a planet.

Notice, how nobody is mentioning the “Opps, sorry we said it wasn’t a planet, we were wrong.”

In fact, if I remember right. there were quite a few people who wondered why they had to take Pluto off the planet list at all?

So, when we go into an ice age, will all the scientists who keep insisting that the Earth is warming, all of a sudden…stay silent and come out and say,

“OH! The Earth is cold! That’s because humans have eaten too many cows!”

Okay…it’s a good day. It’s an exciting day considering how long it took to get to Pluto. At least SOMEBODY is still exploring.

I’m certainly glad we now have proof. Pluto..IS a planet. Think we can send some dweeby scientists there?

And HOW Did Al Gore Miss This?

Nobody Gets Email

How about this? Is this not incredible or what? Make your trash into oil to run your MAD MAX machine. Never have to worry about the coming apocalypse! I want one.

And WHY is it not being done by our trash collectors? How come I haven’t seen Brad Pitt promoting this? What a great place to put all those plastic bags.

Imagine how much money the oil companies would lose if people starting buying these….which is why this great invention will probably never reach the masses.

But..great idea.

The Biggest Fear for Humanity is NOW A.I. Who Knew?

A. I.Nobody Wonders…

Prince Charles has another problem on his hand: A vast number of elite and VERY rich people are claiming that the real danger of the world will not be global warming…it will be…


Artificial intelligence has the potential to make lives easier by understanding human desires or driving people’s cars, but if it were uncontrolled, the technology could pose a serious threat to society. Now, Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and dozens of other top scientists and technology leaders have signed a letter warning of the potential dangers of developing artificial intelligence (AI).

Nobody…let’s get this straight: Robots could pose a worse threat to humanity than the usual earth destroyers….politicians? Or…are they afraid that the governments will make Bill Gates develop an A.I that could literally wipe out whole cities and populations?

Hasn’t that been the subjects of movies made in the last twenty years?A. Il three

Last October, told an audience at MIT that AI is humanity’s “biggest existential threat.” Earlier in 2014, Musk, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and actor Ashton Kutcher jointly invested $40 million in Vicarious PFC, an AI company that is working to create an artificial brain. The co-founders of Vicarious, Dileep George and Scott Phoenix, were also among those who signed the open letter.

Okay. So they all signed this letter saying that it’s the biggest threat to humanity, and then grabbed their checkbooks and put millions into developing the very thing they fear the most?

What’s going on?

Others who signed the letter include Peter Norvig, director of research at Google; Martin Rees, professor emeritus of cosmology and astrophysics at the University of Cambridge; Vernor Vinge, professor emeritus of computer science at San Diego State University; Frank Wilczek, Nobel laureate and physics professor at MIT; and many others

Nobody Wonders: What have all these guys been hiding, that they are not telling us about? The nobodies out in nobody land, living paycheck to paycheck, would just unplug the machine. In the real world, we don’t see any danger at all….except the teenager who feels having to drive his car is interfering with the more important job of texting.

If anything, all this technology is just dumbing us all down. Chinese students are not even learning how to read Chinese anymore they text so much.A. Il Two

And I quote from a most famous source that I’m sure ALL of them have read:

But with the development of industry the proletariat not only increases in number: it becomes concentrated in greater masses it strength grows, and it feels that strength more. The various interests and conditions of life within the ranks of the proletariat are more and more equalized, in proportion as machinery obliterates all distinctions of labor, and nearly everywhere reduces wages to the same low level The growing competition among the bourgeois, and the resulting commercial crises, make the wages of the workers ever more fluctuating. Te unceasing improvement of machinery, ever more rapidly developing, makes their livelihood more and more precarious.—Communist Manifesto

To the lower proletariat, machines pose no more a threat than Al Gore’s prediction that earth was going to die in a few years. We are more worried about how to survive the tyranny of men.

To a nobody, the biggest threat to humanity, is, and always has been…men in power.

If you really believe A.I. is the most dangerous threat to humanity, then don’t build it.

Pretty simple. But, Nobody Wonders what the real reason is behind all this fear..

I bet…it’s all about money and power.

It always is.

Why We Should Worry About Obama’s State In the Womb

Nobody Reports

My husband and I have a battle going on in the car: Tell me if this sounds familiar: He has a tendency to drive too close to the car in front of him. He KNOWS that’s a death waiting to happen, so why does he do it? For years I have wondered about this.Men in car

I am always shouting “HEY! SLOW DOWN! I WANT TO LIVE!”

If traffic ahead suddenly stops, I, in the passenger seat see it, but he doesn’t. WHY? Because he is, a man. His concentration is on everything around him. His peripheral vision is excitedly tuned in to just about everything. (Including all good looking women.) IF a helicopter should fly out of the sky in the blind spot of his car, he will take quick action and miss it.

He also does another thing…..he dares. Other drivers. Ladies? You know what I mean?

Needless to say, it’s a matter of extreme frustration to him when I hold my head down and cover my eyes. He thinks, he’s driving fine.

On the other hand, when I drive, I tend to focus on the car in front of me. And so, if someone is coming up behind or besides me, he sees them, and I don’t.

This causes the usual blaming and typical ‘WHAT ARE YOU DOING!” comments until one day, I figured it out. His brain was taking in all aspects of the scene except the front, my brain was taking in a more narrow view. And it was because of our brains.

Either way of driving could get us both killed. Now, we work together. I watch the front, he watches everything else.

So, let’s discuss something nobody is talking about these days:—Something that not too many people are reporting: The scientific FACT that men and women’s brains are VERY different. There are shades of gray of course, but on the whole..guess what? FACT: Your mother’s hormones flood your brain with testosterone in the womb if you are a boy and this shapes your man brain. Of course, mother nature does this all by herself, unless s of course, your mother is under great stress during the pregnancy, which if you are a boy, you might get blasted with a bit of estrogen, which will add a bit of the female to that brain. You might end up loving to shop for some unknown reason.Female brain

Here’s what the scientists have found:

Female brains are more lit up and colorful than male brains. On the whole female brains have 15 percent more blood flow than the males. Thus, far more cortical areas, are processing emotions in the female. The female also has a lot more connection between the two hemispheres of the brain This little nerve bridge that connects the two hemispheres is called the corpus callosum and these nerves in women are about 25 percent bigger.

Male brains tend toward more development of such complex spatial skills as mechanical design, measurement, direction, abstraction, and manipulation of physical objects. Testosterone surges have a special effect on spatial functions in the right hemisphere of the male brain. Because the man does not have the corpus collosum nerve connection between the two hemispheres, he doesn’t connects as many feelings to words, or even thoughts to words. If the feeling or thoughts needs to move from the right to the left hemisphere, it takes a while for men. While women use six or seven cortical areas for languages in both hemispheres. Men on average use about half the amount of words that women do.

And then you have the brain chemicals.The Male Brain

Men have less serotonin than women, the chemical that calms us down. They also have less oxytocin, the empathy chemical. So men choose action first, talk later.

The male brain also does not hear as well.

That’s right ladies…you think he is ignoring you, but maybe he really didn’t hear you.

The amygdala and the hippocampus is also different. The hippocampus is why the female remembers how the husband was trying to hide his attraction to the female sitting next to him on the plane, and she remembers every single denial that he uttered as he practically went into a coma.

And this one is the one advantage that as a woman, I really don’t like: The female brain never rests. This is probably due to the fact that she was responsible to making sure the baby wasn’t eaten by the hidden panther in the cave while daddy slept.

Men on the other hand, can ZONE OUT. Men can take mental naps. That’s right. They can be watching football and ZONE OUT. NOTHING is going on there ladies.

Yes, it’s true. At times the men are just…not thinking anything.

For a good example of female and men brains at work, someday watch the morning FOX show called “Outnumbered.” The show has one man on, and he sits in the middle of four females who basically, never shut up.Outnumbered

They can’t help themselves.

The poor guys, just sit there quietly, and once in a while, when they think he can back up some point they have made, they let him talk.

Any man that goes on this show, should get a medal. Or more than likely, he doesn’t care if he talks, he’s just enjoying the view.

So, right now, my husband is killing someone in his video game, and if I went in and said something to him, he wouldn’t’ even hear it.

I could say, “I have been seeing Chris Pine while you are at work honey,” and he wouldn’t even blink. In fact, even if he did hear it, he would know I was kidding. No emotion whatsoever would surface on his face. A woman on the other hand, might emote over it for days even to the point of having a mental breakdown.

And that brings me to “bridge brains.”

A male brain that has some female aspects, or a female that has some male aspects.

That’s another blog.Male and female brain

Some conspiracy theories think they are putting female hormones in our water to make the world full of Obama’s pajamas boys. I’m not so sure they are wrong. As for Obama’s lame action against all threats to the United States? Who knows what tremendous stress his mother was going through while flying all over the world pregnant? Maybe pajama boy really IS Obama.

Having said that…it’s all the more reason that whatever brain you have, hang on to it! Especially if you are a man, playing video’s or watching football…tell your wife to go read a book, or go shopping…it’s your man brain controlling you and unless she wants to find herself a woman to live with— it is, what it is. We need all the male brains we can muster at this point.

And if you are a man…just let your wife talk away. Zone out.

Men, women

After all, her poor brain just won’t let itself rest.

Have a little pity.

After Spending Billions, Scientists State the Obvious…


Nobody Cares

Tell me that they didn’t already know this:DNA two

Plain old bad luck plays a major role in determining who gets cancer and who does not, according to researchers who found that two-thirds of cancer incidence of various types can be blamed on random mutations and not heredity or risky habits like smoking.

The researchers said on Thursday random DNA mutations accumulating in various parts of the body during ordinary cell division are the prime culprits behind many cancer types.

It’s amazing isn’t it? The truth appears before our eyes day after day, and yet, someone somewhere spends billions on research to verify what they already know to be true…in other words, DNA is fact. If your mother had breast cancer, odds are, you might get it too.

Every time you go to the doctor’s office you have to give your family’s medical history…and why is that? Because they ALREADY know this.

So here’s the question: If genetics is two-thirds of the reason you might get your parents disease, can we also conclude that you will also get other things from your parents like the proclivity to love to climb trees or play basketball, or have a higher IQ?wonder

The Bell Curve authors were blasted out of the scientific community for saying that the Jews had the highest IQ’s of the human race, god forbid the facts should also support that. It’s not to say that some races are smarter than others, because, as Thomas Sowell has pointed out, in evolutionary sense of the world, geography has played a major part in the development of the different races, but if the proclivity to be 7’6″ tall, gives you an advantage to be on the winning NBA teams, then doesn’t the proclivity to be able to figure out schematics in your brain without a computer also come from some genetic DNA?

Of course it does.

Strokes run in my family, so when my doctor tells me I should be concerned about my heart, I always tell them right up front: “Doc, I will either die of a stroke or pneumonia, and if you want my heart, go ahead and take it….just be sure you don’t give it to a politician, genetically speaking. because–trust me–if given to a politician like Hillary Clinton. it would immediately stop beating.

And someday some scientist will tell you why.

Nobody’s Email: The International Space Station and John Lear

Nobody Reads Email and BOOK:

If I was going to be in outer space for a while, I think I’d want Reid Wiseman up there with me. What a GREAT attitude!


Here’s a little something I thought fascinating from this morning’s read. It’s from an interview with John Lear, who was the son of the inventor of the Lear Jet, a pilot and X-CIA agent himself, who was taken to Area 51 with a man called Bob Lazar some time ago, and shown proof of UFO’s. Bob was hired to reverse engineer a downed UFO years ago, and Lear explains the technology of the energy fuel used by “aliens” below in this passage:

Lear also said that Bob Lazar gave him detailed accounts and descriptions of the work he was doing at S-4. “He was trying to reverse engineer the same system that propelled these craft hundreds of thousands of light years away.” To illustrate how Lazar explained it to him, Lear displayed a model of the propulsion generating system the create used the Lazar worked on. He took the domed cap off the model to show what looked like an upside down water spigot. Inside the cap covering the spigot was a piece of fuel called element 115. “Bob said that we have five hundred pound of this stuff at Los Alamos, ” Lear revealed.

John explained that the generator shoots protons in the tip of the element 115 fuel source, bumping the 115 up to element 116, at which point, because it is highly unstable, it instantly decays, releasing enormous amounts of energy. This incredible release of energy, according to what Lazar told Lear, allows the craft to violate the conventional laws of physics and travel at unheard-of speeds. In harnessing the energy, the speed of the craft is actually an illusion, because the craft doesn’t move through space in conventional ways, as an aircraft does, but moves space through and around it.

“What they do, “Lear said, “Is to pull space around them and wrap it around them and that’s what allows them to travel so quickly across the vast distances of space. They are not traveling through space, but pulling it towards them. ” He also explained that in pulling space, slipping it around the craft like a stream, the propulsion system also warped time inside the slipstream itself. It would give the perception that time was standing still.

Many people think UFO’s are just silly topics, and others think they are real.

As for me, I’m open-minded about it all. EVIDENTLY, they have no clue how to make this 115, or they do know, and have no plans to disrupt Google’s Windmills.

Just thought I’d share the passage, because I thought it would go along with this very fun video.

(From the book: UFO: Hunters, William J. Birnes)

Moon Eclipse Coming Tonight: Don’t Even Bother to Tell Your Teenager

Nobody Flashes

I know I am suppose to get excited by moon eclipse, but I also know, that most people in the world, find it…just so boring.

Yes, I think it’s safe to say that only one percent of the population is getting excited by the fact that tomorrow morning, there will be a selenelion:moon eclipse

Tomorrow morning almost everyone on the east coast in the Americas, eastern Asia, the Pacific Islands, and Australia will get the rare opportunity to see a special type of lunar eclipse called a selenelion, or horizontal, lunar eclipse.

A selenelion only occurs when a lunar eclipse happens around the same time as sunrise. Because of its timing, observers have the chance to see both an eclipsed moon-set and sunrise simultaneously.

How do I know this? Because I remember years ago, I tried to get a handful of teenagers really excited about a full moon eclipse. It was a Saturday night, and many of them were hanging out in my house, as they tended to do on summer nights as my teenage son, loved to have them all gather at my house, and I keep telling them all that the event that was about to happen was pretty exciting.

You can imagine my surprise, as I watched the earth darken, the eerie shadow cast upon the earth, the almost surreal feel of the earth being engulfed upon a once in a lifetime event, as if the very cells in my body had oozed darkness inside my own warbled brain…and the teenagers around me said “Oh cool.” and went back to partying and telling jokes, and flirting with their girlfriends, the girlfriends laughing at their silly banter, not even looking up…and I remember shouting at them all…

“HEY! Don’t you realized how RARE it is to see a full moon eclipse?”

And one of the girls said “really?” as if I had made the whole thing up, and went back to looking at her nails. They were actually bothered by the fact that it got too dark and they had to WAIT till it was over.

Good god.

So, if you are one of the few who even try to witness (or can) this rare event coming up in just a few hours…

Consider yourself one of the few remaining people on the planet who do.

I —-will probably be asleep.
