England hates the Moon

http://howtosplitanatom.com/news/british-scientists-create-moon-missiles/

Dear “scientists”,

Please don’t accidentally blow up the moon. We like it.

Best regards,

Humanity

P.S. Are you freaking kidding with ‘Penetrator’? If I was a missile named ‘Penetrator’, I’d bloody look forward to exploding.

--Nate.


One more thing…

You see? All the rumors, all the hype, all the anticipation as June 9th got closer, for what? Only to know you will have to wait yet another month to get that… phone?

I have a suggestion to all the media covering Apple rumors (and normal people):
- One rumor is enough, and is somewhat cool. After that, it gets really boring. So next time, after the first rumor, don’t come and tell me you saw a pile of boxes waiting to be delivered to an AT&T store. Just wait for the keynote.

Regards,
--Bernardo the Reservoir Engineer

P.S. Can I edit Excel files on that… phone? Because if I can, I’m getting one. Whatever, I can only display them, I’ll still might end up getting one. Sorry Xperia X1.
