Happy 2015

Last night, I was looking for something cute and/or funny to post as we were counting down to the new year. I found this quote from the 2004 "re-imagined" Battlestar Galactica series.

       Counting down. All functions nominal. All functions optimal. Counting down. The center holds.          The falcon hears the falconer. Infrastructure, check. Wetware, check. Everyone hang on to the             life bar, please.

This is what the Cylon hybrid in charge of the base-star attacking the 12 colonies is saying as they begin the war on the humans. It seemed oddly apropos for a count down to a new year.

The more I thought about it, the more it made sense to ring in the new year with this. Especially the last line; "Everyone hang on to the life bar, please."

It's the end of an old year and the beginning of a new one. We have our loved ones. We have our interests. We have our goals. We have our dreams. But most importantly we have our lives. Holidays are rough for several reasons. But, we have to hang on to the life bar. No matter how bad it gets, hang on to the life bar. 

Happy 2015 everyone. Infrastructure, check. Wetware, check. Everyone hang on to the life bar. Please.
