Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Mystery And The Solar System

Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Mystery And The Solar System

Postby koimaster » September 9th 2014, 8:56am

I have written about the glowing moon and mused about the curtain of stars. I have covered the expanse of the galaxy and the majesty of the universe. It really helps a person to remember how small we are in this great big thing called existence.

But in all that talk I forgot to mention one of the most important and most relevant topics you could study in astronomy: our neighborhood.

I’m not talking about the neighborhood with that nice older lady down the road who has all the cats, or the one with the grumpy middle-aged man who is obsessed with his lawn.

No, I’m not talking about the neighborhood you grew up in before moving to a new town or even the one you are living in now.

What I am talking about is the other neighborhood that we are all residents of: our planetary neighborhood, otherwise known as the solar system.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Not my normal style, not my favourite brand, but that is trick.

Interesting concept and amazing technology.
But at the end of the day-MEH!!!


Just a silly gadget for the wealthy who have no idea that it's anything but an expensive watch.


It reeks of MB&F


Instead of wasting their talents on these expensive and over done watches you'd think at least one of these guys would show the Russians how to make a quick set date.

Finding out the time is about as difficult as finding a cheesburger.

I always had a soft spot for moon phases and such, back when I could see.
Now I just measure the phases of the moon by the amount of hair growing on my hands
