Some folks have come up with what I think is a pretty damn cool holiday: Carl Sagan Day (Nov. 7)!

Tree Lobsters put up an awesome comic to commemorate it.

That's not only one of my favorite Sagan videos, but one of my favorite videos ever. Every time I hear that speech, I don't whether to laugh or cry, to have hope for humanity or feel misery for the direction it is heading. Ultimately I think I have hope - for as small, horrible, and insignificant humanity may be, it still is incredible enough to produce someone as great as Carl Sagan.

A few weeks ago, a new, beautifully-done Sagan tribute video, A Glorious Dawn, came out and has been a huge hit (over a million and a half views so far).

Finally, here's the awesome Sagan meets The Matrix video.

The Matrix Vs. Carl Sagan

"If wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe."

Thanks Carl, you made the world a much better place while you were here.
