If the moon passed withing 6 feet of the Earth, I bet some people would try to jump on to it.
They’d soon find out about the gravity of the situation.
note: I bet someone would be looking for that flag as a souvenir! … and some people would be looking for the tip, if it was a crescent moon … because that would be easier to hang on to than a round surface.
double note: if it happened in the daytime, it wouldn’t be so exciting.
triple note: NASA would probably feel pretty sheepish too!
Today I thought “Someone in the world is thinking about me right now” … and that would have made me happy … except for the guy honking in the car behind me because I was stopped at a green light.

I guess if there were no sun,
… the moon would be the brightest thing in the sky.
note: moonar landings are for moonatics!
double note: I’d feel better landing on the moon while it was full … I’m not very good at parking.
Today was a hot sweaty day … which is better than those cold sweaty days.

It’s the moon’s fault.
note: the moon makes me crazy! … all that cheese and I can’t reach it!
double note: as for the moon, what goes around comes around.
triple note: I guess if I lived on the moon, I’d say the moon’s Earth more often than the Earth’s moon. It’s all a matter of where I am standing … or perspective … or something like that.
notes to myself #173
Be careful when using cheese graters.

What’s the deal with these signposts?
They are everywhere!
Do you really want or need to know how far you are away from N.Y., London, Tokyo, or Singapore?
Sure, they are mildly interesting stuck out in the middle of nowhere; and they are a good photo opportunity. But most of the time I don’t really care.
I guess if you can’t visit the Equator, the Prime Meridian, the Tropic of Cancer/Capricorn, or the North/South Pole; they are the next best thing.
Sometimes they list less well known places.
I saw one that included Bratsk, Russia. Like anyone is going there in a hurry. They must have had an exchange student visiting when they made the sign. Or it’s an in-joke for the locals.
Sometimes there is a place mentioned, but it has a different name than the one used in English.
Usually some multilingual person figures it out and enlightens the rest of us. It’s almost always one of the big cities in South Africa. I thought the Dutch owned the franchise on multiple names for the same place; but the South Africans are a close second.
I’m amazed there isn’t one of these on the moon.
I guess it would be pretty boring: every place on Earth would be the same distance away.
The sign could include other planets and the sun though.
I can just imagine some aliens stopping by and looking at the signpost.
“Ahh! That’s Earth. Lock n’ Load brothers; Lock n’ Load.”
note: Yes, I know the moon revolves, so a signpost isn’t feasible; but I couldn’t have used the alien stuff otherwise.
