    Yeah - my bad. I thought the thread I shut down was the same one running before I went away. Brainfucked by travel and catchup. Go ahead and re-post anything good from the abortive thread if you want.

    FFR, these recurring threads will run for 4 weeks apiece rather than along calendar-month lines. Thus the datings in the titles.

    Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
    I know exactly what you are

    Opaque ball of hot dense gas
    Million times our planet's mass
    Looking small because you're far
    I know exactly what you are

    Fusing atoms in your core
    Hydrogen, helium, carbon and more
    With such power you shine far
    Twinkle twinkle little star

    Classed by their spectroscopy
    Oh, Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me
    Bright when close and faint when far
    I know exactly what you are

    Smallest ones burn cool and slow
    Still too hot to visit, though
    Red stars dominate by far
    Twinkle twinkle little star

    Largest ones are hot and blue
    Supernova when they're through
    Then black hole or neutron star
    I know exactly what you are

    Our Sun's average as stars go
    Formed 5 billion years ago
    Halfway through its life so far
    Twinkle twinkle little star

    Forming from collapsing clouds
    Cold and dusty gas enshrouds
    Spinning, heating protostar
    I know exactly what you are

    Often forming multiply
    Clusters bound by gravity
    Open type or globular
    Twinkle twinkle little star

    After the Louis CK bit I just have this.

    It's not new, it's not big, and now it is less funny.

    Re: Sean Bean

    Wrong. I'm pretty sure he hasn't yet died in a Sharp's production.

    Of course, one role out of how many doesn't mean Hollywood isn't out to get him.

    @RenThing: My favorite part of that is the "dead baby countdown" in the corner. I love that they decided to count it in decimal places.

    @Alan

    They must not have heard the words of wisdom: one half baby plus one half baby a whole baby does not make.
