The Sky: is it any good?

The sky is the region of the upper atmosphere seen from the earth.
At night, the sky is made up of stars, planets and the darkness between them. In daytime the sun's rays make the molecules appear to be blue.
When you are giving the sky a value between 1 and 5, be sure to take into consideration that clouds are not really 'part' of the sky, they are just masses of water-vapor which move across the backgroud of the sky.
Also, bare in mind there is no such thing as 'sky' - the atmosphere is there all the time, but at night we can see through it. So when people say they see birds, insects, aircraft, and kites 'flying in the sky' they are actually lying.

Be sure to cast your vote below on whether you like 'the sky' or not.

The Pug: is it any good?

Jessica Alba has two pugs, Sid and Nancy. That's because she likes them. Jessica thinks Pugs are sociable dogs, playful, charming, clever and succeed in dog obedience skills. But they are also usually stubborn about certain things. They only rank 57th in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs, being only of fair working/obedience intelligence. Pugs are also often referred to as the comedians of the dog world. But as anyone who lives with a comedian knows, this can be a curse as well as a blessing.  
The 'comedian' may become slightly anxious or agitated if their owner ignores them or does not play with them. In general, they are very attentive dogs, always at their owner's feet, in their lap, or following them from room to room. But this could also be because they suffer from depression.
So, is the pug any good?
