My first thought was that this would be a cool parody of those BP-saves-the-planet ads. Nope. There was an actual BP-saves-the-planet ad preceding the real video.That's really cool that they could travel ahead in time to shoot this. I think I can see the Great Wall of Disenfranchised Voters in Cleveland.I'd call it a draw, up against a random kitten doing random kitten-stuff.

And on that planet? Millions and millions of kittens.BTW, did you see "In the Shadow of the Moon"? There was a memorable quote from one of the astronauts about realizing that they were the first humans to ever see the whole of planet earth.Sure, the goal might have been to have the first humans walking on the moon. But that's some awesome bonus benefit.

This one from 40 years ago is far better because it was taken by a living person.Earthrise 1968The late adventure photographer Galen Rowell called it “the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.” Captured on Christmas Eve, 1968, near the end of one of the most tumultuous years the U.S. had ever known, the Earthrise photograph inspired contemplation of our fragile existence and our place in the cosmos. For years, Frank Borman and Bill Anders of the Apollo 8 mission each thought that he was the one who took the picture. An investigation of two rolls of film seemed to prove Borman had taken an earlier, black-and-white frame, and the iconic color photograph, which later graced a U.S. postage stamp and several book covers, was by Anders.

Since 1949, Durhamites have slept soundly, secure in the knowledge that, in our town, erection can be depended upon. Now, thanks to the power of the internets, we can spread that security all over the world.
For such an enlightened, tolerant guy, I sure get pissed off easy.
