not having yet had brekkie

All this talk of pancakes and nuts is making me hungry.

Since I'm north of the 52nd, I'll be making myself nice hot,gooey oatmeal.

Pancakes are for sundays.

I'll leave you nuts here in the forum discussing odd shaped things floating about in the outer reaches of the solar system.

) possibility? -> Ultima and Thule were moving in substantially different ways, possibly on drastically different paths at one time, and the intersection of their paths, the resulting impact put them roughly where they are now. This might explain the difference in planar form between the two objects and why they are so 'slim'. -- I'll note I'm still working on first coffee and first breakfast. I'll think on it more after third coffee.
