Sour Grapes FTW

This is maybe one of the coolest programs I've ever seen! It lets you see all the recorded stars and constellations, centered at any location on any of dozens of planets and moons in our solar system! Right now I have it set to my home city, and running in real time, but I could set it in Paris instead and have it running through a virtual hour every second! And it has all this lore and technical info about the stars and constellations. You can turn off the ground and atmostphere overlays and just show a view as if from space. It's so neat! -geekout-

I remembered last night that last semester at Tech, I was waiting at the Chic Fil A for my milkshake one day. The girl in front of me just turned around and began talking to me! It was sort of strange at first but I talk to random people all the time anyway, and she seemed nice enough, so I just went with it. We were discussing really mundane things, like why the shakes were taking so long and the state of school-run fast food chains, when she asked what flavor I'd gotten. I answered cookies n' cream, and asked what flavor she had gotten. Strawberry. Eventually she got her shake, and since I was still waiting she stuck around for a minute or so. At one point before she left she told me that she particularly enjoyed mixing strawberry with cookies n' cream. Then we parted ways and I headed back to the library with my and my friend's food.

It wasn't until I was back in my seat in front of my books that I realized what had just happened.

I wonder if she was serious about the milkshake mixing or if she was just trying to get you to stick around. :P

Well, yeah, I never learned how to drive. I guess I'm sort of learning right now.
