I Will Be Upgraded—And Die Hard Is a Christmas Movie

So despite not being a little old lady, I wear hearing aids, because apparently my ears are defective. In other words, I’m a cyborg enhanced with advanced hearing technology.

Those of you who don’t think this makes me a cyborg are probably the same group who don’t think Die Hard is a Christmas movie, and you really need to rediscover your joy.

Okay, I admit that one has nothing to do with the other. But I just read this article about how 62% of people wrongly think that Die Hard isn’t a Christmas movie, even though it obviously is, and I wanted to publicly point out their wrongness.

And it’s my blog, so I do what I want.

Anyway, today is my doctor’s appointment to discuss upgrading my hearing aids. In other words, I will be upgraded with new, improved super-hearing capabilities.

Now, if I could just figure out how to use this super power for the good of humanity…

How the Geminid Meteor Shower Could Give You Super Powers

First of all, I promise that not all my blog posts will be NASA-inspired, but let’s face it: NASA is awesome. Space is awesome. We are all stuck to a giant rock circling a gianter fireball that is the center of one of billions of galaxies. So basically, there’s a lot to say.

Anyway, NASA reports that tonight is the annual Geminid meteor shower, and stargazers can watch meteors streak across the sky as they enter Earth’s atmosphere.

Geminid Meteor Shower

While you’re out there admiring the marvelous spectacle, rest assured that it is exceedingly rare for people to be struck by meteorites, and try not to think about how the dinosaurs were likely wiped out by an asteroid.

Instead, think of that obviously-true story where that guy gained super powers after being hit by a meteorite. It could happen.

Right?
