    2020 the year where you fell like you attached to incline plane that raises helically even more than a person official at a person with a bunch of paperwork that can make some of the inmates free and can't make a friend. Well back to sleep for me.

    2020 or in the new revised Chinese calendar system, the year of the revenge of the pangolin.

    Space-wise, it's been a hell of a year. In every other aspect, it's been a year of hell.

    Yes, the problem with pressurizing with helium is that your rocket exhaust doesn't come out with a roar, but more like a high pitched squeal. You don't want people laughing at your big, shiny rocket.

    Is this the step where they weld the PDU boxes in place, rendering them irreparable?

    From the Covid thread.

    Now there are jokes about the.. ah..,other types of swabbing.
    Butt why?

    Let's just put it behind us and turn the other cheek.

    How likely is it that they are established there? I would think this is only the tip of the iceberg.
    No, there are no icebergs in Florida.

    Mongeese (is that the plural?) do eat snakes, but I think a full grown python would be out of their league. I'm sure they happily catch young ones.

    If the pythons didn't eat the icebergs, how do you explain the fact that there are no icebergs in Florida?

    Every morning I do some exercising. To prevent rampaging elephants. No elephants have rampaged here in millenia. Absolute proof that it works!

    Caveat: There HAVE been elephants here. Of a sort. Their fossils have been found on an island I can see from my window! But none since I've been here!

    It sounds like a Jeopardy Answer.

    A planetary body that is eccentric. What is the IAU, Alex?

    Sadly, I think that should be “What is the IAU, Ken?” nowadays.

    Actually, they just announced the next round of guest hosts. Savanah Guthrie, Anderson Cooper, Sanjay Gupta, and Mehmet Oz. In keeping with the topic of this thread, that last one, while true, is a joke ... a bad one.

    Dr. Oz? Are they also going to call other famous scam artists like Bernie Madoff or dig up PT Barnum?

    I know there will be others, I just mean that at the moment, Ken Jennings is the host (and, in my opinion, doing a very good job).

    Oz is an excellent surgeon. If only he'd stuck to that.
