Does anyone even do guitar solos anymore?
Every guitarist has opinions on what some of the greatest recorded guitar solos are. While there are many that are commonly regarded as “great”, there are lots of others that don’t get as much attention. Not too long ago, the editors of Guitar World magazine put together a reader’s poll, to find out what their readers considered to be the best guitar solos of all time. The results surely reflect the magazine’s demographic (no jazz guitar solos, for example), but no one can argue the following 100 selections boast some great guitar work.
I read Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot” but I don’t remember ever actually seeing the picture.
The photo above was taken by Voyager 1 in 1990 as it sailed away from Earth, more than 4 billion miles in the distance. Having completed it primary mission, Voyager at that time was on its way out of the Solar System, on a trajectory of approximately 32 degrees above the plane of the Solar System. Ground Control issued a command for the distant space craft to turn around and, looking back, take photos of each of the planets it had visited. From Voyager’s vast distance, the Earth was captured as a infinitesimal point of light (between the two white tick marks), actually smaller than a single pixel of the photo.

Back in World War 2, many creative and talented pilots faced danger with a sexy babe painted on the nose of their aircrafts. Some were wholesome girls next door, while others were naked nymphos ready for action! Reportedly, many of these surviving planes’ artwork has been altered in order to be less offensive when displayed at airshows and the like! BAH! Here’s the real deal for y’all to enjoy!
It’s probably best to see all three pictures of this accident for full effect so I won’t ruin it for you by posting a cropped pic. (Don’t worry, there’s no gore)
