    I heard the Egyptian space program was having a lot of problems, but the Minister for Space Exploration was not recognizing them. Apparently, he is in denial.

    Modern Canada has always rode the technological wave of the future and in law enforcement the RCMP is now leading the way by retiring its aging stable of horses for cutting edge robot horses.

    I didn't like that show. I mean, neither of them finished their pyramids and so it was just pointless.

    The Oxford vs Cambridge boat race was enlivened yesterday by the teams chasing dolphin pace makers and the inclusion of spin turns was also unusual, but neither team managed to catch the dolphines, only crabs as is traditional.

    When the Vikings brought the game of baseball to the New World, the native players had a hard time convincing the Vikings that using the horned helmet to catch the ball was silly and slowed the game down.

    It has been scientifically proven that the best way to stop greenhouse gas emissions is to stop building greenhouses and tear down the ones standing.

    Oil companies finally accept that they must pour oil on troubled waters. By releasing oil in oceans they increase reflectivity and decrease surface area, , solving global warming. Opportunistic small boats can suck up the oil to power engines thereby counteracting all the benefits. It's an ill wind.

    During the early 1950's candy cane telescopes had become the rage till many reports of children licking the glass lens and slicing their tongues caused the fad to fade away.

    Without a doubt allowing voting machines to choose our leaders has proven that AI is not as smart as we think.
