Quote of the week

Marko, on the discovery of a possible Class M planet merely twenty or so light-years away:

On the galactic scale, it’s in our cosmic driveway, so to speak. If we already have an Earth-like planet orbiting in the Goldilocks zone of a star so close by, then the statistical chances for our little blue pebble being the only life-supporting planet in the universe are about as great as the statistical chances of Kate Beckinsale coming up our driveway in the next ten minutes, wearing her skin-tight Underworld leather outfit, piloting a Ferrari with the suitcase compartment full of $100 bills, and bearing a note from my wife saying “Have A Fun Vacation, Honey.”


Kate Beckinsale in Underworld

That’s one scary-looking driveway there.

    Yeah, it really needs to be sealed. There’s a lot of patch work to be done as well.

    Oh, wait…
