Astronomically speaking, isn't a mass that doesn't orbit any star more properly called an asteroid?

Wow, there's 20-30 times more solar energy in the summer times compared to a cloudy winter day. That's an amazing fact.

Seattle winter fucking sucks. Anyone who tries to tell me otherwise would risk being punched in the face, if I wasn't paralyzed by crippling depression right now.

Winters here suck. I am sick of people complaining about it, though. Guess I'm a "social politeness nazi," whatever the fuck that is. Some people really get worked up about othe people's opinions, I guess.

Anyways, back to plannin Summer 2013.
