Into The Darkness

Image
The thick, iron barred, cell door crashed to a close. The echoing sound of keys, jingled down the dark, empty corridor of the district jail. The cell doors to the other inmates had been locked hours earlier, and the sudden noise and motion, was beginning to wake a few of the lighter sleepers.

    As the sloven jail guard turned to walk away, a sudden flare of light from a match roaring to life, eerily sent shadows dancing around the tiny cell. The flame of the match licked at the fresh tobacco in the thin cigar that dangled from the moth of the cell’s only occupant. He inhaled deeply, the small cubicle brightening from the glow of the bright cherry on the cigar, then quickly blew out the still light match with a exhale of noxious gas. The cell was plunged once again into darkness.

    “Do you really think you are going to keep me in here?”      

    The deep voice, although barely a whisper, crawled through every fibre of the burly guard. Shaking his head, and fighting to suppre…

Broken Hearts and Shattered Dreams

The good news? Things can't possibly get worse.

On September 15th, 2000, I met a woman that changed my life. I fell in love in a way I never had before. There was one slight problem, however, I had a vasectomy in January that year, and couldn't sire any children for her; she left me, with my blessing, to find happiness and a family.

The "plan" was for her to have some children, and eventually we would get back together.

Years went by, and we both found other lovers.The idea that someday we would get back together seemed nearly impossible. Suddenly, 11 years later, after being hurt and abused by others, we met again; decided it was time to stop living in pain, and finally be together. She had her children now, and nothing stood in the way.

At first, it was great! I felt on top of the world!

Slowly, I began to notice certain problems. She was not the confident woman I knew, and had difficulty making decisions. I knew that she was physically and emotionally abused by he…

Astroid Impact

Sentry is a highly automated collision monitoring system that continually scans the most current asteroid catalog, for possibilities of future impact with Earth over the next 100 years. Whenever a potential impact is detected it will be analyzed and the results immediately published.

The JPL Sentry System has detected a speeding mountain of rock, Named, ELE 420, this asteroid  has 2 times the energy of the Comet Shoemaker Nine, which created an Earth sized plume on Jupiter. The main difference in this comparison, is that the newly classified asteroid is considered solid, unlike the comet that formed the "string of pearls", that excited scientists in 1993. This in itself posses a major problem; any effort by Earth's scientists and contributing governments to destroy the asteroid, or even attempt to change it's projected trajectory will be difficult, at best.

Objects larger than about 1 kilometer (0.6 mile) that could destroy life on Earth strike every few hundred …

I am under attack. I normally don't respond to bullies. The very act of a response, indicates the effectiveness of their tactics.

Which is worse; an individual who admits to making a mistake, or those that continue to attack and defile the individual for a making a mistake? No one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes; it is the actions that follow, however, that determine the quality of an individual. The willingness to examine and admit the truth about your failings, is the key to learning and improving. The first step in this personal growth, is recognizing that a mistake has been made. Admitting the truth, is usually the…
