The folks at NASA are now accepting applications.
They're looking for new astronauts - the first new class in about four years.
You need a sense of adventure, certainly, and the ability to spend long amounts of time in cramped conditions.
You also need a bachelor's degree in math, science or engineering, plus some sort of experience or a military background.
They're looking for a dozen or so new astronauts, and they've already had over 6000 on-line applications.
Don't let that scare you away.
If you think you've got the right stuff, let NASA know.
Take that bold step!
Britain's Health and Safety Executive - the equivalent of OSHA in the United States - announced yesterday that they're suing the production company behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
You may remember that Harrison Ford broke his leg in June, 2014 when a hydraulic door closed the wrong way on the set of the Millennium Falcon.
The HSE believes that the production company didn't take reasonable steps to protect its workers.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out - English bureaucracy versus the megalopoly known as Disney.
Meanwhile, who do we see about what Kylo Ren did to Han Solo? Huh? Who's going to take care of that?
If you watched the Snoozer Bowl on Sunday, you know there were a lot of complaints about the condition of the field at Levi's Stadium.
You wouldn't expect issues, since the weather conditions were near perfect for football.
Still, a lot of players had to change cleats in the middle of the game due to footing concerns.
This little vine got posted on Wednesday by a guy who covers the Carolina Panthers, showing Michael Oher on the offensive line getting pushed back by a defender like he was on ice skates.
Watch the Vine - Oher's the guy in the bottom left of the screen, getting pushed in Cam Newton's direction.
It's pretty funny - and makes you wonder if the field had been sprayed down with WD-40 or something...
This is the best thing I've seen in a long time.
Betty White - yes, we can call her - sat down in an empty movie theater to give her own personal review of #NationalTreasure Deadpool.
The Ryan Reynolds comic book sorta-superhero flick opens today in a theater near you.
But Betty got a sneak preview - because, after all, she's Betty White! - and took the time to let us all know what she thought.
If someone doesn't grab this idea and turn it into a regular web feature, we will all lose out!
And just in case you haven't seen the trailers for the movie - hey, it could happen - here's one of them.
Harvey Weinstein, a big Hollywood producer and a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, made a statement on Wednesday that's causing a bit of a stir in the film community.
He and Leonardo DiCaprio were together at a function in New York, and Harvey made a speech that included this tidbit:
"As an Academy member, you're not supposed to endorse anyone up for an Academy Award, but I have to say Leo DiCaprio is so amazing in The Revenant . His devoztion and the way he rolls it all up into something beautiful is amazing. I've never worked with anyone who's so wonderful and so classy."
Nice words, but as a member of the Academy, he's not supposed to say anything that could be seen as an endorsement.
And even with his disclaimer at the start of the statement, how can you not see this as him saying he wants Leo to win an Oscar for Best Actor?
Let's see if this controversy gets any bigger.
Meanwhile, in case you haven't seen the movie, here's what all the buzz is about...
The folks at Levi's have a new style of jean ready for you to try on.
It's called the Wedgie.
Hurts just thinking about it, doesn't it?
According to the official word, Wedgies will hug your waist, your hips and your butt and make all of the above look wonderful.
They say you should not be conjuring up images of someone yanking your underwear up in a quick and painful manner.
I would suggest to the marketers that maybe they should experience a wedgie before they give its name to an item of apparel.
Gas prices in the US are dipping low.
In some cases, even lower than the experts predicted.
I know I paid $1.77 a gallon up the street yesterday - and truth be told, I felt like I was stealing it.
A fill-up for under $20? When's the last time that happened?
The folks at NBC News managed to find a station in the midwest that was selling gas for 99 cents a gallon.
Don't get too comfortable though. The experts - you know, the same people who said prices couldn't get this low - say the prices should start heading in the other direction early in March.
Maybe they're not experts after all. Maybe they're just spoilsports.
What do you think?
Katie Holmes visited The Tonight Show this week.
She was there to promote her new movie, Touched with Fire.
But the chat turned to the Super Bowl, and Katie had to admit she didn't watch the game.
She did make a point to check out the halftime show, just to see Beyonce
And she even took a moment to do her imitation - such as it is - of Queen Bey.
The crowd seemed to like it.
I'm trying to figure out why...

The annual swimsuit issue is one of Sports Illustrated's most popular publications.
Every year, the sports magazine features super models in outfits that would pass for swimwear only on very select and secluded beaches.
Let's face it, the pictures don't portray real life.
This year, there will be a little reality to be had in the swimsuit issue.
Ashley Graham, a plus-size model, will be part of the spread. And she's delighted.
She told The Stir Daily that her mantra is simple: No man, no job, no friend is going to tell me who I am -- I am going to tell me who I am."
How's that for setting things straight?
