Mr Rogers

I will freely admit that the recent events in Boston shook me up some, as it did many people.  As I was browsing through my Facebook feed after work, thinking about all the things going on and seeing the reactions of my friends and loved ones, I came across the now famous 'Look for the helpers' picture and quote that has spread across the internet.  Normally, when I see something like that my first instinct is to head to Snopes to find out if it's real or not, but for some reason the thought never occurred to me, it felt right, it felt true, and completely out of character for me I shared it, believing it would help others feel just a little better, like it did for me.

XCOM:Enemy Unknown

This one's been out for a while, so I really doubt anyone who cares about it is going to find anything new here.  I'm just in the mood to chatter about a game that's been taking up a chunk of my nighttime activities lately.

Last week, Charlie Bolden, head of NASA stated that he didn't think that it was likely that NASA would be heading back to the moon within his lifetime.  Naturally, this has lead to a good amount of space nerd rage, even as NASA works on other projects that are arguably more useful in the long term.  While I can definitely understand the frustration, I can't really support it.
