Pianodwarf - you have a dream job.
Had. I got laid off from NASA in February.
I got a new job about a month later, with the National Geodetic Survey. It's better for me in most ways -- better work environment, more money, much shorter commute (only a little over a mile from my house). But NASA was, well, you know... NASA
. I definitely miss being able to say I was a part of it.
Want some inside information from where I work? We're out of fluorescent light tubes.
I knew the Illuminati would get to you eventually. Oh, wait, you have no light bulbs... can't be the Illuminati, then. Must be the Fiendish Fluoridators.
Maybe because it's so far away, maybe because it's so recently discovered, I can't really put a finger on why, but Pluto's always been my second favorite place in this solar system.
It's never been a "biggie" for me, but even so, I'm definitely very anxious for that probe to arrive.
Thanks for the info.
