Fe. Iron. Inter. Steller. Iron. It has a ring to it…right? Like a bell!! Hit it, Josh!
(We shall just let THIS first story speak for itself…YOU decide if it RINGS true):

Scientists in Germany have found traces of a very rare isotope of iron within freshly fallen Antarctic snow and say that the radioactive material must have (DING!) arrived on Earth in the form of interstellar dust. The finding backs up previous research revealing that iron-60 was generated by supernovae within the last few million years. But unlike those earlier observations, the iron-60, in this case, has only just arrived – having reached our planet no more than 20 years ago. (DING!) In the mid-1990s, John Ellis, Brian Fields, and David Schramm proposed that small quantities of iron-60 and other radioisotopes ought to be (DING!) present in geological formations on Earth after being forged by exploding stars.
They reasoned that some of the radioactive isotope should be (DING!) contained in dust particles within the Local Interstellar Cloud, a region of relatively dense interstellar space through which the Solar System is currently traveling at some 26 km/s. Any of those particles lying along Earth’s path should (DING!) rain down on our planet’s surface as it speeds forward. Korschinek says the find is important because it provides strong evidence that at least some of the Local Interstellar Cloud must have (DING!) been generated by supernovae.
According to Jeffrey Linsky at JILA in Boulder, Colorado, the local cloud may have (DIING!) formed after a supernova shock wave compressed and ionized the gas in the interstellar medium. As such, he says, iron-60 atoms could be (DING!) concentrated at the edge of the cloud. He adds that any future change in the rate of deposition of iron-60 in the Antarctic might (DING!) indicate that the Earth is crossing this boundary. “The timescale for the Sun leaving the local cloud is less than about 3000 years,” he says, “but it could be (DING!) only a few years” (DING! DING! DING! DING! DING!)

–NASA discovers 3 new planets, wants your help to find more…Josh thinks a bit differently on this idea. #JoshRant
–Explore Space…well sorta…kinda…in a way…

Today we realized there were fewer fireworks and also fewer demonic attacks than expected over the weekend and the holy daze, especially after our epic show last Friday night on Have No Sphere with guests Jerry Marzinsky and Anon. We share some defense, add some encouragement, and shine forth with LOVE. How do they even...

Josh disappears!! Down a literal rabbit hole!! He is Binktangled! Is it CERN’s fault? Is CERN doing ANYTHING? We know it is not good, whatever it might be up to, we have seen the rituals performed there, not happy dance time, for sure. But can they affect our reality? The Bears, Mandella’s death, and chartreuse...

Win YOUR tickets to the edge of space, well close to space, sorta near-space, if you will, not like all the way past the Earth’s atmosphere type space, that would need a capital “S”, you know, Space, or even ALL caps: EDGE OF SPACE, like a movie, oooooooh yeah, that’s the ticket. But seriously. let’s...

It’s a Luminary alignment kinda morning, ladies and gentlemen! Come join us as we make a LIVE sojourn to see a literal miracle in the sky, led by the one and only Awesome Austin…or is it his evil doppelganger?? Love ya, Dave! –Josh and Dixie have a Binky!! –Bye-bye, V-ger!! –Pat Sajak will yell a...

It was Father’s Day recently. Or so they say. Some of us have hated greeting card industry-designed holidays since way BEFORE our awakening, so now these fake holy days are not even on our radar, akin to politics or Scientism or consumerism or any other societal contracts. Josh had a rough time of it, with...
