The best sub-head ever!
Reminds of Men Behaving Badly.
Yes; in / on Magrathea. In outer space. Doi.
Fun AND good for you - not much else you can say that about these days!
@ Grease Monkey

Exactly the sort of determined journalism that keeps me coming back here - you don't get that kind of insight from the Beeb!
My right trouser pocket is my phone pocket; nothing else ever goes in there (apart from a little bit of fluff). I have yet to scratch, dent, mangle or otherwise damage a single bit of any phone so ner to you!
My hovercraft is full of eels.
Sorry - bad day. Mine's the one with a pocket full of dried frog pills.
Space is AWESOME! In the true sense, not the farcebook sense.

Lester, for crimes against the English language, I sentence you to beer. Please keep up the good work!
True enough, but our tornadoes are shit.
"Ambitious and forward looking"?
That sounds worrying like a gubmint euphemism for "unlikely to actually get off the ground" or possibly "top of the pile when the next round of cuts are announced".

Remove the batteries before you have an accident?
If Apple made electric cars, maybe.
Make it idiot proof...
