Favorite TweetStuff (11/16/12) ~ Enjoy! ~

Every Friday I highlight favorite items in my Twitter stream that are inspiring, beautiful, funny, and sometimes strange. Today, there’s a lot about space. Enjoy!


@Tamavista “To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life.” ~ W. Somerset Maugham

@mjdub Charles Darwin gets 4,000 write-in votes in Georgia
[SEO: This was in response to the incumbent: “Paul Broun, a physician and member of the U.S. House of Representatives Science, Space and Technology Committee, called evolution and the Big Bang Theory, ‘lies straight from the pit of hell.'” Unfortunately, he ran unopposed.]

@zaibatsu “The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.” ~ Albert Einstein

@pourmecoffee Here is a place that actually exists: The Milky Way over the coast of Dorset, England



@Alyssa_Milano 11 Pop Culture Monet Tributes for His 172nd Birthday (via @mental_floss)
[SEO: Monet purists may not be thrilled, but it’s fascinating how adaptable his style is to other mediums.]

@BeyondMeds “Please do not understand me too quickly.” ~ André Gide

@lizstrauss Spectacular October sunrise (Chicago harbor)

@karenkmmonroy “If your heart isn’t in it, then you aren’t in it. There is no hard skill or fact that can surmount your heart.”

@mjdub VIDEO: In Australia, A Total Solar Eclipse

@HealthyPlace “I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

@zaibatsu Google Launches Stunning ‘100,000 Stars’ Chrome Experiment
[SEO: “‘Using your mouse or trackpad, you can zoom in and out to explore our galaxy,’ Google said. ‘Zooming in reveals the names of the most prominent stars close to our sun –- click each name to learn more about it and see a digital rendition.’ Scroll all the way out for a dizzying look at the galactic plane and the Milky Way, which houses up to 400 billion stars. Zoom all the way in to our sun and take a peek at some of the 100,000 stars in our vicinity, many of which have been named by astronomers.” I love this stuff!]

@LillyAnn “Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” ~ Maya Angelou
