No Sex Pt II: Houston, We Have a Hit


Thanks to all those who made the last post one of the most-viewed ever. Before we return to scientific matters, here is a photo from the theatre poster now appearing all over Johnson Space Center. (I wonder who did that?) Houston, your last chance to see the play is this weekend!

On the meantime, Britain's government has proven that matter can implode into a Black Hole. Alistair Darling, Chancellor of the Exchequer, thinks he can solve the budget problem by raising the top tax rate to 50 percent. This drew protests from artists like Andrew Lloyd Webber and Michael Caine. We greatly admire Caine and would give him a warm welcome in Texas.

Today we learn that Alistair Darling has avoided paying taxes himself. He changed his address 4 times in 4 years to avoid the tax rules. Darling hired an accountant to show him how to avoid taxes, and made the taxpayer pay for the accountant! The Prime Minister claimed two different grace and favour homes to avoid taxes, while enjoying a free home at Downing Street. They have produced a man-made Black Hole, and Britain is spiralling into it.

Speaking of accountants and tax avoidance, the company's next play is THE PRODUCERS!

So it may be a fitting thing to start a second career. Good luck with that. The reason why audemars piguet replica items as mentioned in the breitling replica uk are sought after is due to the fragility of bakelite in said applications, in no way is it because it is a superior material. It is basically pretty bad plastic, before rolex submariner replica were industrialised as an alternative. The use on this watch is nostalgic and odd. Not only is it a spectacular way to tell the world that you make poor purchasing decisions, but it also simultaneously a unique conversation starter provided that conversation revolves around terrible rolex replica. And very often, after several minutes of watching, I tell myself that the film negative of what I am watching should never seen light. Probably preferred by people who have a lot of swiss replica watches to spend on a dress watch, and want one from brand that everyone will recognise.
