…is dead. Long live Roscosmos!
Anatoly Azk attempts to explain.
[Update a while later]
Anatoly has updated with a cartoon about launch-system chicken. I wish I could say we don’t do that here as well, but we do. We just don’t tend to wait until the very last second to swerve.
This is pretty funny. How an insurance company lost its mascot to Internet porn.
I admire this woman’s sentiment, if not her approach:
After officers realized McMurtry was the hit-and-run driver, she admitted to her dangerous ride and asked if anybody was hurt, police said.
When cops told her there were no injuries and she smashed through the church’s lobby and nursery, McMurtry replied, “That’s too bad.”
McMurtry tried to justify her religious fender bender by claiming Scientology was evil because its members blackmail people, cops said.
You don’t say.
Barack Obama doesn’t see him as an ideologue.
Of course not. Like Obama, he’s a “pragmatist.”
A dumb piece at Newsweek.
On the other hand, here’s a smart piece from Eric Berger: We’re going back to the moon, with or without NASA. Absent a major change of attitude in Congress, probably without.
…by wiping out their disease resistance?
I’m skeptical. I think we’ll come up with better solutions than this.
..is a “Faustian bargain“?

You have to feel bad for this guy:
Bich wrote in part, “I find it highly irritating that nobody seems to believe me when I say that my full legal name is how you see it. I’ve been accused of using a false and misleading name of which I find very offensive.”
Given his residence, maybe he should think about a name change.
This is truly bizarre. I don’t think I’ll try it with Rerun, though, even though I happened to buy a cucumber the other day. She gets enough abuse.
I’m completely unsurprised that he is clueless about the purpose of NASCAR. Does he really think that people would come to watch Prius’s toottling around the track?
