That's my granddog, in his Doggles, on a ride in Colorado where my daughter moved after graduation.The eye piece was a great way to shield his eyes from bugs or any other flying debris.
I'm sure I have a number of folks here who watch who are fans of gadgets, inventions and science fiction.
One of my favorite shows that combines all 3 is Dr. Who from the BBC. If you've never seen the series, or the episode "Blink" go watch it!
There's not much that actually scares me, real life has many more fatal little surprises than TV, but this episode totally drew me in, and gave me some serious goosebumps. It's the episode (1 of 3 total) with the "weeping angels".
The weeping angels look, to the unaware, like any of the statue angels you see in cemeteries, English gardens, parks. But they are actually quantum locked humanoids, who, when observed by any other creature (including other weeping angels) turn to stone, rendering them resistant to harm. Even looking at one another can do it, so they often hide their faces in their hands, hence the weeping appearance. But if you look away, even blink they are on you faster than you can imagine. They if you see them again, they stop, only mere feet away from you, then. . oh, please. . . try not and blink again.
A peaceful angel.
Close your eyes for a second?
So for my Dr. Who fans and my Barkley fans. I'll end this post with Barkley's imitation of a weeping angel (scroll down slowly).
Don't blink. Don't even blink.
Blink and you're dead.
Don't look away,
don't turn your head,
and don't blink. . . . Good luck"
