EVERY new Doctor Who puts a unique spin on the character – and Peter Capaldi is no exception.
It makes sense the latest Doctor should be influenced by Bowie. Bowie is the original Time Lord, since he too is as old as the universe itself and transfers to a different physical form when necessary. It’s totally freaky science. [insert 1970s Dr. Who theme song here - from the Bowie Golden Age]
The other day I decided to order a calzone and a 2-liter of Dr. Pepper online from a local pizza store, mostly because it sounded good and I didn’t feel like cooking. The price was about $10.
About 35-40 minutes later, the calzone and 2-liter were delivered - by one of my former students. I was pleasantly surprised. This is what followed (my dialogue is in italics)
- "Hey! I didn’t know you worked there."
- "Yeah. Hey, this one’s on the house, I shit you not."
- [surprised look]
- "I saw your name took and your order. This one’s on us."
He left before I could tip him. It was cool of him to do that, and he was one of the most improved students in my tech class.
Hundreds of young stars and protostars reside in the Orion Nebula, swathed by dust and gas. For many of these stars, the material surrounding them will go on to form planets. But others will have all of their planet-forming dust and gas blasted away by “Death Stars” taking the form of massive O-type stars, a new study shows.
And here I was thinking that Death Stars wipe out planets because of superlasers.
