Hmm. That extending rod is rather phallic isn't it?
You'd better be working up to a massive cock joke with this.
Even bigger than that one.
Vulture 1: Countdown
Till PARIS goes -down- ... er... *up*.
On actual launch day of course we're going to need one of those Olympic Sized Clocks and someone with a Loud Commanding Voice so you can do the launch commentary properly:
"5...4...3...love balloons primed, ignition and Lift Off! Lift Off of Vulture 1! And PARIS has slid off of the launch pole and is thrusting skywards. The cork has popped and she's coming up fast... some scattered applause from mission control here - there hasn't been this much excitement since Moses parted the pink sea."
Now is the time to contact Brian Blessed and one of the Big Names in clock manufacture... or perhaps you could do two birds with one stone and ask Channel Four to lend you Jeff Stelling and that big clock he sits in front of*?
NASA apparently start their countdown a mere 43 hours** or so before launch. Amateurs. We should start now!
As Bad As Nuclear Waste
Nuclear waste is not bad. The continued unjustified fear of nuclear power has got to stop.
He is right to say that carbon sequestration is a stupid, unproven idea and in no way a long term solution to carbon control. In the same breath he shouldn't be denegrating the only actually proven and stable energy technology that could save our skins from the runaway greenhouse fire if, and only if, people get over their idiotic misconceptions about nuclear power.
