But something changes everyday
And every question way too long, long, long"

you just might get it!"

hate, and bigotry be gone?"
Welcome to my new site, "H2Obsession," neccessitated by the closure of "Hydradix" on Yahoo's Geocities. Not that I did anything wrong: Yahoo decided to terminate their free websites. If I wasn't so cheap, I'd just buy a domain and webhosting service!
I have intentionaly avoided the use of most obscenities. You will not find anything here that you would not find on broadcast television in America. However, since YOU CAN'T PLEASE ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, it is possible you may find some things offensive. So, if you are easily offended, leave now. Otherwise, enjoy your visit and if you find yourself offended, don't say I didn't warn you!
Well, December 21st 2012 has come and gone, and the new Mayan Long Count has began... all without the end of the world. Will the doom-sayers ever get it right? Funny thing is, when they do get it right, they won't be around to say "I told you so" afterwards.
Speaking of The End, a number of supposedly educational television shows continue to talk about how our solar system should survive for another 4 billion years or so, based on the estimated "lifetime" of our sun. The word "lifetime" is not quite accurate as our star should continue to burn long after that, but around that time it is predicted to undergo a metamorphasis and grow into huge "red giant" which will burn up the inner planets, in particular this rock we call Earth. However, these educational shows seems to neglect the fact of a much more immenent threat: the Andromeda Galaxy!
The evil menace, much larger than our Milky Way, is on a collision course with us! Our best astronomical calculations predict that it will rip our galaxy apart, scattering stars and solar systems across interstellar space. Only a small disruption of Earth's orbit would result in drastic, probably life-terminating, climatic changes. A large orbital disruption from an inter-galactic "collision" would surely mean death to life as we know it on our planet.
This threat is much sooner than the "death" of our star. Not 4 billion years from now, but less than a 1 billion years. Perhaps within 100 million years. So The End is at hand... if you consider 100 million years into the future "at hand!" Everybody start preparing. Build shelters to protect the citizens and amass a space fleet to battle the menace of Andromeda. We'll teach that galaxy it can't bully us!
Feel free to look around at what little I have posted. If you have suggestions / comments / criticisms, just contact me!
Currently the look and feel of my new site is quite different from my old one. So far, I haven't been able to edit the pages to make them look like my original site. The problem seems to be that the Google editor strips out HTML tags that it does not like... even if they are valid tags! I can understand stripping out browser-specific / incompatible (bad) tags... but it also strips out the "good" tags that it doesn't like. So if there are layout problems, it could be because I can't design a web page, or more likely because Google fouled it up.
