Photo of the day: the unbearable nearness of Hell as viewed from the heavens


Here you go…. Good morning, boys and girls!

Buenos dias!  (Pronounced “Boo-anus dee-ass”…. in case you don’t know because you are a non-Lateeeen-oh who never took Spanish in high school).

This is what Florida and Cuba look like at night from up above, at an altitude of  200 miles or so.

The photo was taken on August 16 by astronaut Reid Wiseman, who is currently orbiting earth aboard the International Space Station.

Assignment for the day:  stare at this image while you light your pants on fire, then douse the flames when the external pain matches the pain in your heart and soul.

Rinse and repeat.

For extra credit:  search the photo for “rustic vessels” ferrying “migrants” from Hell to Florida.

Then set your hair on fire.  If you are bald,  set your shirt on fire instead.  Do not douse the flames until you spot one such vessel.
