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

1409790504289_wps_25_Astronaut_Reid_Wiseman_po

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.

For delightful photos from space that involve no pain, go HERE

For a live feed from the ISS go HERE, and take your chances on passing over Hell-on-Earth or on spotting some "rustic vessels" full of  "migrants."
