    Correct. Except for BJ, who has the right to be a complete idiot whenever he chooses.

    "Use pygmies for space exploration. The smallest man was under 1 foot and ten inches tall and weighted 32 pounds. Such people would require far less food, water, air, and space, allowing for longer duration trips in more comfort."

    History shows that the complexity of international relations is always slightly greater than the available technology supports.

    There's an old SF story from way back that proposes that breeding humans to be much smaller would ensure longer-term survival here on Terra.

    I seem to recall a legend that leg-amputees were considered for the astronaut role.

    I have never understood why the people in Oz thought that would be a solution. It's more insane than Guantanamo.

    Out of sight, out of mind. It is an affront.

    Adults and children alike have increasingly attempted suicide and acts of self-harm. The details are gruesome but important: children have swallowed razor blades, have tried to overdose on medication, have hanged themselves. The situation of the 10-year-old “boy with no name”, transferred under a federal court order last week, is, tragically, not unique. Any suggestion that such behaviours are a political manipulation is not only absurd, it misses the point entirely – that no one in their right mind would make such a terrible reckoning.


    Here in the EU, we cannot claim any high moral ground on this one though. The response to the public outrage when the photos emerged of the dead toddler washed up on a beach was to try to prevent future refugees from making it as far as our beaches by driving them into even more appalling detention camps in countries like Libya and into the hands of human traffickers and other criminal gangs.

    Nobody can claim any high moral ground. We have some pretty grotesque stuff to answer for here too.

    To be strictly accurate you can be a saviour if you succeed but you might not get much appreciation.

    “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria,” the US president tweeted. “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”

    Why is Russia partnering with an animal that kills gas? Is it even possible to kill gas? Why does this animal own people? Would it be ok for Russia to partner with the animal if he killed his own people, but didn’t enjoy it? By referring to the missiles as ‘smart!’, as opposed to referring to them as smart, does he mean that they will not be smart? So many questions...

    Dear Trump,
    Attacking Russia is a bad idea.

    Best not to think about it. Perhaps Trim has an extra blanket we can have.
