Did You Know That ‘AOC’, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Has An Asteroid Named After Her?

by Anura Guruge

Donald Trump will be SO, SO livid IF he ever finds out.

So don’t tell him. OK? Our secret.

This wasn’t recent either! It was named after her c. 2007 — eleven years ahead of her being elected to the United States House of Representatives.

This is pretty impressive stuff. She got this honor, because as a high school senior (aged 18), from Yorktown High School [Yorktown Heights, New York], in 2007, she won second place in the 2007 ‘Intel International Science and Engineering Fair’ for her microbiology project. Wow.

I really don’t know much about her. Did not even suspect this.

Trump will now want Jupiter renamed after him. But, maybe NOT Jupiter. Mars would be more appropriate and it is a GOOD COLOR match.

The asteroid itself had been discovered in 2000 at the Lincoln Laboratory.

A pretty common or garden asteroid in the asteroid belt. Nothing special. Decent size. Just over a mile across. So, not huge, but not tiny either.

This is pretty special. I wanted to make sure that YOU hadn’t missed it.

Quite a few videos, of varying length, on YouTube. Take your pick.

Bravo. I am impressed. I am cool for my tax dollars to be used for this.

What A Cruel Fate For A Good Christian … How Could This Happen … Sacré Bleu.

Saw this today at our local free ‘Swap Shop‘ at the ‘Alton Dump‘ (our vernacular for the ‘Recycling Center’).

Wasn’t sure how to react.

How could this have happened? Wait 5-years — yes 5-years — to create your OWN Bible and then you discover you have a book missing? God in heaven!

Plus … Plus … Plus.

Then you give it away?

What kind of person would do this? Lose a book, miss a life’s opportunity and then abandon it.

I am at a lost.

One book missing!

Luckily “God’ Final Word” is at that very same facility on a regular basis. Maybe he can find the missing words and complete the works.

So, finally sold this Canon lens yesterday. Reasonably happy with price.

THEN got this e-mail this morning!

Just looked dodgy. Reminded me of some of the old Craigslist scams.

So, I Googled. BINGO.

Luckily I did NOT fall for it. There was no way I was going to bypass the eBay automated process for printing shipping labels.

Just wanted to give YOU a Heads Up.
