Tube View











Bizarro is brought to you today by the Death Star.

I've always wanted to visit on of those huge mountaintop observatories like the one badly depicted in this cartoon. I think it would be cool. I have a small telescope that I used to like to use but here in NYC, there is too much ambient light to see much so I don't bother. You can barely even see the credits, much less read them.

I'm off in a few hours for a vacation, but I'll be posting here almost as regularly as I usually do. I likely won't post again until Tuesday or Wednesday of this next week, but after that, it will be fairly consistent. I've been working 12 and 14 hour days for a few weeks now trying to get ahead on Bizarro so I won't have to work while I'm gone. Hope it doesn't take me too long to relax and enjoy myself. For the first few days I'll likely be haunted by the feeling that I should be working on something other than a tan.

For those of you in Hawaii, I'll be speaking in Honolulu on Tuesday, April 20 and on Maui on Thursday, April 22. Both talks are sponsored by the Hawaiian Vegetarian Society, so look up the details on their website and come see me. I'm friendly and it's FREE!

New York City telescopes are for looking at neighbors, not the heavens.

Um, maybe you can't make your speaking gigs in Maui and need to swap out with someone? Cough cough.

Atacama desert is your destination if you want clear skies, but do not forget water! :-)

Last time I went to Hawaii, in the 80's, I found myself all the way into the vacation by snorkeling around and following a fish. Far more important, to follow a colorful fish, than to think about papers and cars and buildings and tasks.

Hey Mr.Piraro.

It's been a while and you haven't posted any comics. Hope all is fine. I read yours everyday and am eagerly waiting for more comics. I would also love it if you could drop me an email. I love you Mr.Piraro!

Well if you ever find yourself in the Bay Area you should visit the Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton (http://mthamilton.ucolick.org/). The view is awesome and you get the added bonus of the windy horse cart road to set the mood as you drive up there.
