Good to know he is still remembered (Asimov).
Re: Shark attacks and ice cream
Not to mention sun screen/block (yuckie cream) sales. And what about little plastic buckets and spades and beach-brolly rentals? And.. and ..and, holy mother!, what about sand heaped up into un-natural shapes?
Jumpin Jehosophat (who?) the list of things that enrage sharks is endless!
How do they (the sharks, not the climate change addicts) even know these things are happening (except those large sandcastles). ...ESP ??
Has this even been investigated? Shouldn't it be?

Re: He needs to make the next one out of a different species of wood.
I don't get it. Why apple ?
Re: Carbon fibre
...have just upvoted to make you feel better...
( Fiver to the usual mail-drop of course )
What is wrong with you people ??
I am disturbingly distressed and seriously something ..."shocked" - I think... that so many of you seem to be taking this for real. There is no Mars 1 and there never will be a Mars 1. (Although one must suppose that someone is hoping to make some trips to the bank.)
The only thing worse than clicking on this particular El Reg link is then clicking on the "Comments". As for actually posting! Good Lord. How bored with your mundane existence you must all be.
Infinitely superior I feel, having many better things to do. (E.g.: Pluck armpits)
...Wish I knew how to do italics and bold... could look it up I suppose... but can't be bothered.
Bugger the sheep ...
The vid is ruined.
... Why can't Lucy lyp sync - - lip sink - - lip synk -- oh forget it.
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.
@ AC London Sulfer
So that's London England then - not London Arkinsaw - Arkinsas - Arkansas - whatever.
As to Sulfer, if one spelled it, spellt it, or even spelt it "SulPHur" it would look bloody silly.
@ 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.
That's dumb. Chicken wire is too flimsy and the gaps is too big. Youse needs Merikan muzzy screen over welded-mesh rabbit hutch stuff ...dipped in RoundUp. Don't you Brits know nothin?
GPS & StreetView
Halford's ain't stocking Red Planet GPS yet. So just stick it on Google Maps (tm) and quit dicking around. (Gigabyte images indeed...)
@ Pavlov's obedient mutt ...
... Oh well, back to The Beano then ...
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
"Two World Wars & one World Cup" ?? Oh dear oh dear. What a knee-slapper. The Bayerische National Guard ist rollink in the aisles.
Paris cause, well, you know, Paris...geddit?...she too thinks she's got it...and did.
