The Beeb's rejection of a Manhattan is clearly nothing more than lefty knee-jerk anti-merikanism ...although I fail to see why the Wight won't do. However, if milli-, centi- kilo, mega- (and etc.) Wights are too difficult, then by all means incorporate Helgos, Manhattans, Sardins (dump Wales!*) and Icelys. The progressions from one to the next are then the perfectly logical and easily derived Vibronachi multipliers of ~36, ~6, ~62 and ~5. ( "~" due to tides and shifting sandbanks ...oy! - nothing is perfect ).
*No, nothing against Wales, it's just that a measure of area must be surrounded by water. Everybody knows that for chrissake.
@ Rattus Rattus
Only dumb insolence prevents me from withdrawing my post ... think I'll go top meself ...
...is being commercialized! Corporations in the Vacuum!! Yikes! Marx warned about this - or was it Philip K Dick? ...I disremember. He can only put boosters together (Musk, not Dick) so cheaply due to thousands of third world children hammering soup cans flat at 50 pence (.77 $) a day. The filthy CAPITALIST is probably even making a PROFIT !! Next thing you know he'll be mining asteroids!
Where's Lucky Starr when you need him? (If you don't get that one then you're too damn young - go find your pacifier.)
Will the Ceres Titanium Mine pay taxes to the merikan gummint? Will it hell!
But the socio-economic impact of this, much less the impending carbon footprint, cannot be adequately evaluated until ManFromMars checks in.
Re AC ... Man Up
This is worrying. Why has manfrommars gone AC? What does he know that I don't? And why hasn't Lewis Page won a Pulitzer yet? Is Sarah Bee real? I don't have any Tin Foil - the stuff I got is made from aluminum - I mean aluminium. It started snowing here around the time the LHC switched to plumbum. Will my post be upvoted? This isn't SlashDot?
@ ain't necessarily so
Stop pissing on my dreams.
Widescreen Business Cards...
...Don't be silly. They use acronyms and abbr's instead. You know, stuff like VW, BMW, V1, V2, VW, GeStaPo, Sfl, IFAM, etc., etc., etc. (The last three are english).
@ cassidy macfarlane
re: Matt Bryant and "I could break down your arguments"...It is blatantly obvious that you couldn't, can't, won't and never will. Emotional rants supporting fashionable fads substituting for having a clue are like vampires - don't do too well in sunshine.
Roswell - 'cause a similar logic stream is involved.
@ Damein Dorn and his 3 Cups

Paris cause, well, you know, Paris...geddit?...she too thinks she's got it...and did.
