Talking Americans... and... Russians...

Hi!

This one is very old...

When NASA started sending astronauts to the space, they quicly found out that ball pens were unable to write in environments without gravity.

In order to bypass the problem, scientists took 10 years and spent 12 billion dollars to developping a ball pen capable of writing in environments without gravity, downside up, under water, on almost any surface (glass included), and bearing with temperatures from negative ones up to +300 Celsius.
.............

In the meantime Russians used the pencil!

There is, if you read a lot of science fiction

Flying to the moon
Getting higher
I can see the stars now
Gotta get you soon
I'm on fire
I've got to show you how now
Flying to the moon
You're beneath me
Maybe you can reach me
Come beyond the sky
You can join me
We can live and fly so high

No, better is this ...

Quote:
Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among those stars
Let me see what spring is like
On jupiter and mars

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby kiss me

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

If the mountain doesn't come to Muhammad, Muhammad goes to the mountain

Arth-Gwyr we face here a very complicated philosophical problem! Who is Muhammad and who is the mountain???

For a start I'm not a muslim, so I can't be Muhammad. On the other hand a stone is never a mountain.

I don't want to speculate about Moonlight being Muhammad or a mountain, because I could risk being seriously injured...

So could you please solve this imbroglio???

I was just joking about science fiction - theory of special relativity wise

The second quote of mine just comes to me when I talk about the Moon ... remember Frank Sinatra's song ?
