Holding the right shift button down 8 seconds activates something called Filter Key.

Last year at Te Papa (the National Museum of New Zealand) hosted an exhibition of "modern" art, a group of wine sipping aficionados were waxing lyrical about a rather bleakley lit installation in the far corner of the gallery consisting of brooms, buckets, mop's and a large cardboard carton of multi coloured rags and chemicals. "A contempory view, a commentary if you will on the downfall of modern society today etc etc" all said in front of a local art journo covering the exhibition. Red faces all round when the cleaning crew arrived and quietly packed up their gear, in preparation for the next job.......lucky for the snobs it wasn't an art auction.

Anything can be art, and art can be anything.

My heart is broken :cry: , just learned that I won't be able to watch the Transit of Venus, one of the rarest predictable astronomical events (a couple of times around every 243 years). If you do see it, please take a picture...:

Bummer Mr.GG,do you know when the next one will be in your part of Brazil? I think we'll get another one by 2127 or later,but don't quote me on that.It might be way longer. :cry: I feel your pain.I love the wow factor with anything in space that makes us all feel very small,in the scheme of things,together.Humbling! Was it Newton or Galiliao before him that 1st predicted The Transit of Venus,or someone else? Was it observed before in Greece,or by the Pharoahs?
Sorry,it's been awhile since college astronomy...you know,back when we used chizzles and tablets! (I broke one of two) D'oh! :oops:
I'm excited! {-

I'm hoping the weather will clear tomorrow (6th), but the forecast is overcast.....

If we miss this transit we'll have a mere 105 years to wait for the next one......

It appears on Mr.GG's map that your on the cusp.Some of the northern island in the X region some in the Y.Visable on the rise or on the set or both? You can always watch it here. :lol: See! There it goes again,and again,and again,and again,again,again,again,gzzzzt,The lunitic is the knockin' the jockey's off of rich people's lawn's. :lol: I love this shit.Man they got a whole shebang @ Exploreit!TM across the street at the old Mace Ranch place,thats now near a school too.So they have several ways of viewing this celestial event safely.It should be real cool.

:oops: Quilt thinks I sound Trendyish when telling tales of wickedness and cruelty.I hope this is OK.
I'm trying to be more ..........I fucking don't know now!.... Quiltmonger! "Please don't take offence,but I thought you where Trendy"....gee,I'm honored. :roll: :wink: :lol: :twisted:

I dont think anything except a full lunar eclipce is gonna beat the solar eclipse at Pescadero beach though.

(and before they get up ill be gone)

I'm located at the south end of the north island, weather permitting I'll be watching through approved eyewear.

I gotta crash now,but how long is it visable down there? We should see it for 6hrs,with the best viewing from 6pm to the exit of Venus,just before sunset around 8pm PST.How about you Grey Roast? (that will make you a grey ghost ) :wink: Ah,too tired! 8)
