Random Internet sightings....

There have been quite a few videos done in recent years showing the Earth relative to other stars in the Milky Way. This one has the best music so far....

What are the odds that this is photo was taken locally? Man + Deer + Bike = Internet Gold

Speaking of the power of the Internet, it seems the people of the UK have finally had enough of Simon Cowell. They've launched a campaign on the web to try to make Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name of..." from 1992 (a song that still resides on my workout playlist) beat out Cowell's latest X Factor winner in Christmas record sales.

The key chorus of the Rage Against the Machine song "**** ***, I won't do what you tell me" is seen as a small act of defiance to the pop star machine that is Simon Cowell.

"Rock band Rage Against The Machine is ahead of X Factor winner Joe McElderry in the race for the Christmas number one, early sales figures suggest.

A Facebook group aiming to get the band's 1992 hit Killing In The Name to the top of the festive chart has attracted more than 750,000 members.

But McElderry's debut The Climb, out on CD on Wednesday, is expected to catch up by the weekend.

McElderry's song was only released digitally after his victory in the X Factor final at midnight on Sunday, giving it less time to rack up sales for this week's chart than Rage Against The Machine.

X Factor judge Simon Cowell has criticised the internet campaign, calling it "stupid".
