The week that was (12/1/2017)

Trying something new. A weekly wrap-up of sorts.


The Austin headquarters for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission was overrun by “several hundred” rats.

A Russian rocket launch went awry when the wrong directions were loaded into it’s flight plan and sent it to the bottom of the ocean.

Meanwhile, the Voyager team dusted off the thruster controls to spacecraft now 21 billion kilometers away. After waiting 20 hours for the instructions to get there and waiting another 20 hours for the response, the damn thing worked!

Finally, Mike Hughes’ rocket launch into the “atmosflat” where he planned to take photographs to prove the earth is flat and “expose the conspiracy” has been delayed until next week.

Los Angeles’ free street paper, the LA Weekly, has a post asking if anyone can tell them who owns them. The next day, the paper answered it’s own question.

And for another year, Kate Dries has still not made it into Hendrik Pöhler’s Erotic Carp Fishing Calendar. The Amazon reviewers are not pleased.
