Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Path of Totality



Pretty cool.  Portland's obscuration is set at 99.2 percent.  Shit like this must have scared the hell out of the ancients, leading to all sorts of myths and rituals.

Now people are camped out near Madras in central Oregon, where the obscuration will be 100 percent for over two minutes.
