Hello my name is Mac Mintaka [Feb. 2nd, 2010|03:38 pm]
I legally changed my name from Paul Lerch to Mac Mintaka this afternoon. I'm very excited and satisfied.

Mintaka is the right-most star on the Belt of Orion. If you and I have walked at night and I've seen it, I'm sure I showed it to you at some point.

It's the point of what to me looks like an arrow. I used to lie in my bed and look out my winter window and I always looked for that constellation in a clear sky. It wasn't until the last few years that I found out it was Orion's belt.

The word Mintaka is Arabic. In common usage it means place/area/neighborhood and in scientific usage it can also mean belt. I confused several Arabic speakers by asking why it also means belt but finally one looked it up in an astronomy book. (I also just found out that in Star Trek Next Generation there is a race called the "Mintakans.")

So, it's my beacon star. Every time I look into a clear sky I look for Mintaka. It only makes sense to take the name for myself. Besides Mac Mintaka is great alliteration, isn't it? :-)

This is how I want *my* funeral to look!
"SMILING THROUGH SADNESS: Clowns held a picture of clown Aristides Alfaro Samper, known as Chirajito, at his funeral in San Salvador, El Salvador, Sunday. Chirajito, one of the country’s most popular circus clowns, died of a heart attack Jan. 22 at age 74. (Edgar Romero/Associated Press)"

Volcanoes = Awesome [Jan. 21st, 2010|05:28 pm]
From Discovery News.
"We can all agree that volcanic explosions are filled with awesome. But get too close, and you're toast. The camera monitoring Sakurajima Volcano in southern Japan was definitely well within the danger zone when it snapped this stunning sequence last month of a visible shock wave propagating out from an explosion in the Showa crater:

Notice the rocks and boulders being flung out from the ash cloud at high speed; had a human been present, s/he would've probably got a nasty bonk on the head, at best. But this is a tiny outburst by Sakurajima's standards -- it used to be an island until a 1915 eruption sent lava pouring into Kagoshima Bay and connected the volcano to mainland Kyushu."

Is that my public voice? [Dec. 27th, 2009|07:02 pm]
Tonight I will experiment with posting all the pictures under a cut and in one post.

Your public self is different from my public self.
