Re: Podcast 236:
George Takei’s last name is pronounced, “tah-kay”. He had a campaign not too long ago where he suggested using his name instead of the then-forbidden term, “gay” to describe homosexuals at a school. Yes, it does rhyme with his name.
Yay me. I actually researched that and got it right. That said, I second guessed myself each time one of my co-hosts said tah-kiy.
I blame whoever said it first and hope it wasn’t me.
It was me. 🙁
Cause for streaking orbs, flying insects. Depending on time of year insects flying close to a light source and lens will also appear as a blob (orb) of light and since they can move quite fast they will leave streaks. Two examples of this are the field in Colorado (Denver?) that was supposed too have some kind of super natural activity and the servalence camera that supposably caught an angel or ghost. Both of these are examples of insects too close to the lens.
Good point. I wonder if Pete’s sister’s pictures could have been fruit flies or something. Did I mention insects? I meant to but not in any detail.
