Let’s Get More Excited About Space Travel

Here’s an idea. Instead of endless reports about Justin Bieber and other mindless crap, let’s get more excited about space travel.

Captain Video And His Video Rangers

(This isn’t a picture of real space travel. It’s Captain Video and His Video Rangers. Old TV show.)

(By the way, the latest Bieber news, as of this writing, is that Usher flew to be by Justin’s side and offer emotional support or something. In case you’re curious. Who says this isn’t the DaddyTips age of having your cake and eating it too?)

On January 23, 2014, three days ago, NASA launched a Next-Generation Relay Satellite. No, not Star Trek: The Next Generation. Something real. The TDRS-L Satellite. Launched by NASA. Frickin’ NASA! And they broadcast the launch live on Ustream! And I didn’t even know! (The video is archived and embedded above. I was wrong. The video embedded above appears to be NASA’s live Ustream channel. Sorry. Here is a link to the video of the launch.)

Nobody cares. Why doesn’t anyone care? We should really care about this a lot more than we do.

The Play Doh Royal Baby And Family

You may have heard something about the royal baby. But have you seen the royal baby and family rendered in Play-Doh? You’re about to.

Play-Doh Royal Baby and Family

What’s that you say? You haven’t heard anything about this? Are you sure? It kind of took over all forms of media, social and traditional. Son of Catherine (aka Kate Middleton), Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William? Grandson of Queen Elizabeth II? Future King of England? Not ringing any bells?

OK, I had to look up everybody’s names on CNN because I’m not a big royal watcher. But I’m not a royal hater either. The truth is that people seem to be genuinely interested in the royal bambino, just as they were with the royal wedding. (Sorry, I should probably say Royal Wedding.) I don’t begrudge people their distractions. (Avengers movie, cough cough.)

Whatever your opinion on all things royalty, I think we can all agree that the Play-Doh Royal Family is an impressive piece of work. According to information we received, it was made entirely from Play-Doh, using over 30 cans of the stuff, and took over five hours. (That sounds pretty fast to me, actually.)

Ben Affleck Looks Like a Regular Dad

We stumbled across a photo of Ben Affleck and his daughters Violet and Seraphina and decided to share it with you. Why? Because the man who played Daredevil looks like a regular dad in this shot.

You have to click through to X17 to see it, cuz we don’t want to pay for the rights to the photo, nor do we want to violate said rights. Who says this isn’t the DaddyTips Age of Respect For Intellectual Property?

Justin Combs, Son of Diddy, Gets Football Scholarship

P. Diddy’s son Justin Combs has received a football scholarship to UCLA, according to published reports.

I’m glad things are working out for Diddy, aka Sean Combs. Poor guy hasn’t had much success. Oh wait.

Anyway, good for Justin. The Winnipeg Free Press says that Diddy is proud of his kid (kiddy?), adding, “This is one of the proudest moments of my life. This is everything a father could want for his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do.”

Fair enough. Not having to pay for college is nice too.
