Oprah's not the only thing getting bigger this month. Tonight's full moon will be the largest and brighest of 2008. It will be 30 percent brighter and 14 percent bigger than usual full moons. Come to think of it, I think Oprah this month is 30 percent bright and 14 percent bigger, too. Okay, I guess I can give up hopes of ever turning up on her show now.

Cruel, editorial humor and scientific objectivity do not mix. Shame on you, author (Thor).
