The world in general is pretty amazing and I think as adults we sometimes loose sight of this. Life just kicks us in the ass at some point and, for some of us, that curiosity and amazement flickers out. In a past show I alluded to this in a rant about how people might be a little happier in day to day life if they would stop worrying about the sudden stop at the end and just appreciate how amazing our little blue/green ball is.

In the spirit of that rant I’ve decided to start a new weekly post called, quite simply, “Amazing”. I’ll be detailing things I look at with that forgotten childlike wonder and question incessantly while my brain simply says “cool!”. Man-made, natural, earthbound and stellar…there’s plenty of amazing stuff out there to talk about. Hopefully some of these things will appeal to you in the same fashion.

For my first “Amazing” post I’ve dragged out one of my favorite animals: Tardigrades!
