In Rainbows. Literally.

Among nature's most vibrant and memorable phenonomena is the rainbow, caused by the dispersive refraction of sunlight through droplets of water suspended in air. It is also probably the coolest natural optical illusion besides St. Elmo's Fire. A bridge between the human and godly realms of Midgard and Asgard in Norse mythology, a colorful pathway to this guy on the right's 401K, anti-deluvian biblical covenant between God and Noah (but apparently not FEMA), and fantabulous symbol of gay pride and acceptance everywhere, the rainbow across pretty much all cultures and social histories is pretty awesome.

So what? I'll tell you so what. I woke up this morning and there was a rainbow on my ceiling. It is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen on my ceiling. Here are a few pictures:

Anyone else out there have any cool rainbow stories? Please feel free to throw on some Sigur Rós records and share.
