Breakfast of Champions 7/25: I Want the Moon, Redux

In keeping with an earlier post, today I've got another cosmos-related link. Turns out Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon, says Earth has been visited by extraterrestrials, and NASA's covering up alien contact.

For me the oddest part of this story isn't Mitchell's tales of intergalactic life. It's that this apparently wasn't the intended topic of the interview. Imagine being the radio interviewer when this comes out.

[Mitchell] told the astonished Kerrang! radio host Nick Margerrison: "This is really starting to open up. I think we're headed for real disclosure and some serious organisations are moving in that direction."

Other unexpected disclosures: the earth is not round, either. It's shaped like a burrito!

Hipsters love the fixed-gear bike. One thing you can say for the machine: the brakes don't freeze even when it hits 25 below. Also, Europeans dig it.

John Kruk once famously said "I'm not an athlete; I'm a baseball player." The Twins strength and conditioning coach would disagree. Judd Spicer interviewed him, and if you've ever wanted to see a pitcher's workout, we've got you covered.

Among the weekend's events: the Kickapoo Country Fair, an organic farm fest. If you don't want to make the trip to La Farge, you can always stay close to home and try our Drink of the Week.

You've still got a chance to catch the Momentum dance event at the Southern, and Friday night's probably the night to do it. Caroline Palmer offers a review of the latest pieces.
