Neil Gaiman has decided it’s time for us to create a new Halloween tradition called,All Hallow’s Read. The premise, as you will hear in the video, is to give someone a scary book to read for Halloween. It’s that simple and I love it!
It was about time someone came up with a new and wonderful tradition for Halloween.
I’ve already begun thinking of which books I am going to gift this year.
What’s your favorite scary book? Which one would you choose to gift?
2013. it’s coming again…
Give someone a scary book for Hallowe’en. Watch the video. It explains everything.
In the early years of space flight, both Russians and Americans used pencils in space. Unfortunately, pencil lead is made of graphite, a highly conductive material. Snapped graphite leads and particles in zero gravity are hugely problematic, as they will get sucked into the air ventilation or electronic equipment, easily causing shorts or fires in the pure oxygen environment of a capsule.
After the fire in Apollo 1 which killed all the astronauts on board, NASA required a writing instrument that wasn’t a fire hazard. Fisher spent over a million dollars (of his own money) creating a pressurized ball point pen, which NASA bought at $2.95 each. The Russian space program also switched over from pencils shortly after.
40 years later snide morons on the internet still snigger about it, because snide morons on the internet never know what they are talking about.
