Inverted Double Paradiddle

So a few years ago I decided to get a custom license plate that was only distinguishable by friends that I’ve told what it is or to individuals that know the 26 standard rudiments…. anyway, on a trip back from Charleston, SC, it was confirmed that another drummer understood it.

Mars Curiosity – First Picture…

So it would seem that the Mars Curiosity Lander successfully stuck the landing and received what by all early accounts was a perfect score (unlike McKayla Maroney).

The first images coming back all seem to be alignment checks and hardware checks as seen here on NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory site.

It would seem however a few photos weren’t posted there due to fear of what the public would think. George Takei seems to have gotten a hold of it and posted it… I’ve made a copy and posted it below for safe keeping.
