    It is a WELL KNOWN fact that Canadians and French have no sence of humour.
    French transpose words, such as, we say "blue pen", they say it as "pen blue", so it HELPS us understand why someone would not understand a joke, and also the language barrier.

    Simples.

    Default NASA has trialled an engine that would take us to Mars in 10 weeks

    How cool is this:

    So where does warp drive come into all of this? The NASA engineers also reported on the forums that they'd fired lasers into the EM Drive's resonance chamber and that some of the laser beams had travelled faster than the speed of light, at around 300,000 kilometres per second... suggesting that the EM Drive may have produced a warp bubble like the kind that allows travel faster than the speed of light in Star Trek.

    Default Iconic Dukes of Hazzard Car 'General Lee' Stripped Of Confederate Flag

    I don't know why they are bothering removing the flag from toys. I had no idea what the flag was as a child.

    Things change. I used to use Roger Mc Gough's poem about an exasperated teacher machine gunning his class, before the Dunblane massacre, but not after. Since the recent church killings the Confederate flag has taken on a layer of meaning unacceptable in the current context. Don't you read the news?
    How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive? Homer Simpson
