I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life *were* fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe. – M. Cole
What the Boss Likes – vacation in Indianapolis for Gen Con 2016, part 1
A couple of years ago, we went to Gen Con 2014 (posts here and here). We went back again this year and just got home. Here are some photos I took at the zoo, and one weird photo that I got coming home.
And the weird photos of what we saw in the sky just east of Indy at around dawn on 08/08/2016

Odd. Pollution sliced up by wind currents… or the weird exhaust of that tiny little black UFO you’ve captured just down on the last (furthest) trail.
it was a very odd day for clouds on the whole trip back. one side of the sky was cirrus then there was a strip of nimbus with patches of mammatus, then another strip of cirrus with some very linear features, and puffy cumulus clouds *under* those.
ah, I do see the tiny UFO. it reminds me of another UFO I saw, a black rectangle, no other features and I saw that early in the morning one day a year or two ago just before work.

It’s terrible here. In June (especially June, but throughout winter in general) people let off giant balloons. Many of these are grey cigar-shaped things, thirty-odd meters long, and the material is reflective. It makes for an amazing sight seeing one of these things just sitting up there in 3-dimensions.
is there any point to the balloons or is it just because they look cool?
Like most things in Brazil, I think it has some Catholic root, but I have no idea what. Now, I think it’s mostly because they look cool, although they cause havoc with aircraft, and often come down on houses, sparking fires.
This is one, but I’ll try and find a vid of the cigar shaped ones. They let them loose outside the city.
very pretty but yep, I can see that they would be destructive. A weather blimp got loose here in PA and did a number on powerlines and some houses.

This is a small one, small enough to be let off inside the city, but you get the idea
