The Brightest Star

Well it looks as if the much-vaunted international space station has been pretty much a ten-year waste of time. I suppose this is kind of sad, though I've never been one whose blood was much stirred by space exploration. But what I find really sad is that this man-made object is now the brightest star in the sky. This strikes me as not only sad but fundamentally wrong - I'd really rather it wasn't there at all. .


  1. We were rolling about in the aisles last night watching the news report about the burd in space who dropped the bag of spanners, all of that dosh and they can't even hang on to their stillson's.

  2. Stuff the space station, Nige. Why didn't you alert me to this?
