Comet 12P Pons-Brooks is now a naked eye object, if you can see it through all of the Starlink satellites. Photo by Richard Schrantz in Nicholasville, KY USA. Schrantz writes: "I tried to image comet 12P Pons-Brooks on 3/28/24. Even though the field of view is just 1.75 degrees wide, I was carpet-bombed by satellites! This represents only 25 minutes of exposure. Thanks Starlink (and/or other satellites). Sheesh. Epsilon 180 ED, ST10XME camera."

@SomeGadgetGuy You won't be disappointed.

I want to do the same with the scenery I saw 8 years ago near Interstate 40, driving though Texas and Oklahoma. Flat, scrubby, empty land with occasional islands of service stations or oil rigs or old-school wind turbines. Sometimes a ranch sign straddling a road leading to nowhere.

    @DemocracySpot It's beautifully photographed.
    And I wish we had Ingles out here. The Safeways, in the city at least, are all shitty.

    @DemocracySpot I'm ok. Slept hard. Walked maybe 4000 steps today... but I'm a little wobbly, like the muscles used for balance weren't working. But I defied gravity :)

    BobHorowitz,
    @BobHorowitz@sfba.social avatar

    @DemocracySpot You not walking? Or are you saying there are no safe sidewalks?

    So last night, around dinnertime, Chris and I got the pathology report back, followed almost immediately by a note from my butt surgeon.

    NO ABNORMAL CELLS, NO HYPERPLASIA, NO RECURRING SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA... just infected tissue and granulation from a large fissure and f***ing fistula that have refused to heal (we'll see about that, asshole).

    I feel... just wow. Wow. The two-year roller coaster ride looks like it might finally be over.

    So now the antibiotics need to do their thing. Next checkup will be in 3 weeks to see how the healing is going... and then it's back to the gym and back to, well, just about everything.

    Here's an actual portrait of me rn.

    Actual shot from the operating room: the doc and anesthesiologist working on my butt.

    So far okay... fissure, fistula, infection. Biopsy will be back next week. I am currently doped up and happy.

    BobHorowitz,
    @BobHorowitz@sfba.social avatar

    @DemocracySpot Yeah. That was nerve-wracking. But wonderful staff, very reassuring, and the doc was upbeat. I'm relaxing on the couch now while Chris makes a pharmacy run for me.

    I have insomnia - worried about Thursday's operation - so I don't know what to do except post here instead of tossing and turning. Good morning, everyone.
