20101216 213121 Z Holiday Hoopla Emotional Bomb Family, Inspiring, Life, Mind, Ramblings, Sad I'm such a sucker. Every year I forget that the holiday show at the grade school is such an emotional bomb. There are babies there and then the show has the full range from pre-schoolers to 8th graders, so it's like watching the lives of your kids flash before your eyes. By the time I get to the 8th grade show, I'm realizing (again) that that's their last grade school show, that they're practically adults. Where have my children gone?! I'm so sad and happy. Jeez. I ended up literally bawling in the car. Things and events don't mean anything unless you buy into the story. People die all over the world, all the time, but you don't know them, you aren't vested in them, so their deaths are meaningless to you. But once you get involved ... Bam!

NASA Finds New Life
NASA Finds New Life []

So the "alien" is from California! The most frequent Sci Fi elemental substitution is Si instead of C, so who would have guessed that As instead of P?!

At their conference today, NASA scientist Felisa Wolfe Simon will announce that they have found a bacteria whose DNA is completely alien to what we know today. Instead of using phosphorus, the bacteria uses arsenic. All life on Earth is made of six components: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur. Every being, from the smallest amoeba to the largest whale, share the same life stream. Our DNA blocks are all the same. But not this one.
