Explanation: Still need to come up with a good new year's resolution? Consider one appropriate for 2009, the International Year of Astronomy; just look up -- experience, learn, and enjoy the changing sky. This 4-minute, time-lapse video is composed from a series of 7,000 images highlighting much of what you could see. Arcing through the sky in a stately reflection of planet Earth's own rotation are Moon, Sun and stars. But the sequence also features satellites and meteors streaking overhead, clouds moving along the horizon changing in a beautiful iridescence, and beaming crepuscular rays.
Found elesewhere but with my answers: I ask myself the questions from the end of Inside the Actor's Studio, which came from two French television shows by Bernard Pivot, because I like to follow how the answers change over time:

What occupation would you like to try? Dancer.
What occupation would you least like to try? Any of my former ones.
What's your favorite curse word? Shit.
If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you reach the pearly gates? Welcome. Listen to the silence of the spheres.
