We can't communicate with the intelligent mold that is inhabiting most other solar systems. On the other hand, it's evil, so that might be a good thing.

Bumping headlines on the Wikipedia home page.

There is a Did You Know item next to a picture with a caption pertaining to a different item on the list.

The item is

Did You Know ... .. that the jellyfish Sanderia malayensis has a life cycle that includes a number of different types of asexual reproduction?

And the picture caption is
The Duke of Windsor inspecting German troops in 1937

But the lines are arranged so the first item reads
Did You Know ... .. that the jellyfish Sanderia malayensis has a life cycle that includes a number of German troops in 1937

Taken together, the mass of a bus and all its passengers is equal to the outrage that will ensue if it goes off a bridge, because you were yakking with the driver about cellphone apps. :mad:

Like the canary in the coal mine, if a budgie freezes into a statue in your living room, it's time to turn up the thermostat.

How likely is it that I'll die due to sinus rinse?
