Solar storms and now Jupiter is going Nova.

Someone needs to tell God that the Red Sox did not get to the World Series, much less win it.

As much as I'd like to have "All these worlds are yours except Europa" come scrolling out, doesn't look like its gonna happen anytime soon.

Killer space fungus, perhaps?

I don't know what poster's botched "Something" link was supposed to be, but I guess it would have gone a little something like this.

This was norm111's intended "Something" link.

[cue Jeopardy music]

"I'll take Space for 1000, Alex"

"The answer is:
ALL THESE WORLDS ARE YOURS,
EXCEPT EUROPA.
ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE."

"What is the quickest way to ensure that humans will attempt to land on Europa as quickly as possible?"

"That is correct!"

Of course, we should all hope that Jupiter's core is a diamond the size of the earth.

Bondcliff, if we're going indulge in speculations, I'd say that God's a Cubs fan and she's PISSED OFF.

And Wolfdaddy, didn't Ben already get J.Lo a ring?

Okay, so Jupiter is blowing up seven years early, and Pan Am still isn't offering flights to the space station? I'm getting a little annoyed here.

How do you pronounce Ng?

Just like it's spelled. And I'm not being facetious. Say "thing" but leave off the "thi" part.

(Where I come from "Ng" is pronounced "Nang.")

Worst. Sequel. Ever.

Seriously. Was Clarke really under the impression that his plot wasn't a horrid combination of predictabile and lame?

First book: Epic story, evolution of mankind!
Second book: Jupiter turns into a star!
Third book: Ooh...uh...there's...there's diamonds. Yeah. Big ones.
