    ^^^The sun's a pretty big target so identifying "the sun" as the orbital point of the Earth isn't very precise. But I see what you're saying, close enough.

    ^^Suicide doors are widely perceived as being unsafe.

    It was OK. An old Kevin Costner and Woody Haroldson. Nothing to eagerly anticipate but OK for a lazy Sunday evening.

    Suicide door, eh? Safer for cyclists coming up from behind as you open them. Definitely more convenient for entering and exiting the car. Can't imagine why they are called suicide doors except unless they open during a crash, but these days we wear seat belts. Time to revisit the design, I think.

    "Yeah, because they're out of your vision's range.
    Consider, too, that the photo was sent to earth over a billion years ago, so the arrow and circle may have drifted off somewhat since then."

    Yea, we took those pics a billion years ago. You know, when we faked the moon landing.

    Déjà vu is when you get the feeling that you've experienced a real-life event before.

    But déjà rêvé is when you've experienced the same dream.

    When a rocket takes of from cape canaveral, does the rocket go up or does it stay where it is but pushes the whole universe back?

    When Chuck Norris does push-ups, he doesn't push himself up, he pushes the Earth down.


    Fact.

    It's called the Barycenter.

    It's typically inside the larger object, but in some cases, such as Pluto Charon, the Barycenter is located between them.

    Barycenter was in the original article which I edited out for posting; shame and guilt!

    Last time I was in Tops on their monthly no plastic bags day, the Thai in front refused to buy the big reusable bag for 25baht, directed them to put the shopping back into the plastic basket, then took it down to the carpark and took it home.

    Don't take that pretentious shite about saving the planet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month or whatever, it's a scam to sell bags. Walk off after they've scanned everything and they'll chase you with free bags they had hiding under the checkout.

    ^^ Los Angeles had machines just like that two decades ago -- refunding the deposit on aluminum cans and plastic bottles.

    ^^ The tramp stamps are a real turn-off.

    If I was doing a girl doggy and saw some graffiti from the last guy, I would go limp immediately.
