If you think you had a bad day, at the start of the week Mark Zuckerberg's net worth could have maintained the average American's lifestyle for 1.2 million years, but now it's only 1.1 million years, so actually it's like he DIED 1300 TIMES.

This reminds me of a joke heard at about the time of Spinal Tap - indeed, it may have been part of a Spinal Tap spoof, which is an interesting recursion in itself.

Interviewer : Why don't you use a drum machine since you keep on killing drummers?
Lead Singer : Well, it's like. With a drum machine, you punch the rhythm you want into the machine, and it does it. But with a real drummer, you have to punch it in time and time again and he keeps on getting it wrong, so you punch it back into him again. Much better.

His reward, a showpiece gun, was not actually handed out on stage, quite possibly because the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has a no-weapons policy for its events.

No? Seriously? What could possibly have prompted that?

I detect a degree of sarcasm in that reply, and justly so.

Maybe some feared Trump would have a fit and grab a loaded weapon?

Britain's winter can pose unique hazards. for example, accumulation of snow in the bowls of radio telescopes can cause mechanical instability, so the dish needs to be tipped over and emptied.
Think James Bond ski-jumping, and stabbing Blofeld with a 10ft icicle from the edge. Think ... the unbelievable horrors of the British winter. Siberia - where people really do get impaled by icicles falling from the eaves of roofs - has nothing on this. video
Emptying the ice out of your communication antenna should be an item on any proficient overhaul schedule. If that includes rubber-duck shaped comet debris, all the worse.

We should have a new force called the Space Force. It’s like the Army and the Navy, but for space, because we’re spending a lot of money on space.
Now, the question: Philomena Cunk, or Donald Trump?

<grins> That actually sounds more like George Dubya - and doesn't the US already have Air Force Space Command or something?



I had to Wiki Philomena Cunk.

The US Air Force Space Command already exists, yes. And Trump’s own government’s policy is the opposite of what he just said. Or it was, until now. Maybe. Much may depend on the exact mix of E numbers in his next Happy Meal.

[edit: Philomena Cunk is worth a watch, by the way - if only to see the expressions on the faces of the people she talks to.]
