Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk made ripples in the space-time continuum on Sunday when he appeared to mistake an image of the Moon for one of Mars.

Musk tweeted out the image next to the phrase "Occupy Mars."

And to be fair, the image he used kind of looks like a red planet:

But it was most definitely not Mars.

Of course, Musk was not the first to make that mistake...

Musk's post actually featured an image of a "Blood Moon" from the July 2018 lunar eclipse.

Musk was immediately pounced on by astute Twitter users.



Certainly not a blunder you'd want to see from someone so heavily involved in space exploration.

But hold up for a second.

Perhaps it wasn't a mistake at all.

After all, as mentioned, a few weeks back President Trump was widely mocked after bizarrely tweeting out that the Moon is part of Mars.

So perhaps this was just Musk's sly attempt at a dig.

Either way, he responded with humor to being caught.

Musk is known for having kind of a bizarre Twitter feed, so let's not put it past him to troll all of us.

If so...good one?


Disciplining children in a way that will make them reflect on their behavior without taking it too far is definitely a difficult line to walk. Some parents have apparently had to get rather creative to get the point across.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
