I really like this photo. Shame about the poor quality, though.

I must admit that when NASA posted the pic on Facebook they did say it was a guy getting a haircut. Still... my description seems more interesting  angel I guess haircuts in space have a coolness factor as well though.

It would be nice to have a redhead of the day thread in order to get to what is really important and worthwhile quickly.

Here, have at the redhead of the century, Simone Simons.



Nice.

I prefer redheads with naturally curly hair. If only they weren't so stuck up.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.

If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;

Though Arabic in Michigan is spot on.

Those two maps are quite interesting. German, Somali, Arabic etc. are not the first things that pop my mind when I think of America. Are there any statistics how many percents of whole population non-English/non-Spanish speakers comprise in various states?
