Today I set up my worm composter. I went to a tutorial setup by LADPW at one of their county centers and picked up a worm composting bin and some worms. You can get more info about it here: http://www.smartgardening.com
Here are about a half pound of red worms, native to some rain forest.
Here's a couple of them. I think i'll name them Kobe and the Lakers.
Here's their first meal, some banana peels!

Very cool, I want to see another launch at the cape!
There were a group of high school kids invited to Jose's talk and they all had one burning question for Jose, "do you drink your own pee?!" Jose said it taste better than tap water and at the end of his slide show, he had a picture of the crew drinking the filtered pee water out of their water pouches during their final meal in orbit. So now I understand why the astronaut corp is so selective. Sure, you must pick the best pilots, mission specialists and scientists. But when it comes to selecting the new class to join the corp, the true question is, "who's filtered pee do you want to drink?"

The guy who gets my liver can punch the guy who gets my face when he finds out my liver doesn't do too much.
