[The hubris of calling your potential clients 'c-level' boggles my mind]

I have no idea about the bait-and-switch-ness of this whole thing, but one minor point: a "c-level executive" refers to an executive whose acronym begins with a "C", e.g. CEO, CTO, etc. etc. So the hubris is not in demeaning their own clients, but rather in inflating their importance (which, I guess, was already obvious).

Oh, right. That's just a mistake. I completely missed that... sorry. I really should be more careful about reading stuff... I thought it was enough to RTFA, but I guess I need to RTFCTIATRT (comment that I'm about to reply to) as well. For the record, it appears that Saturn's max brightness has an apparent magnitude of around -0.3, so it's that it's out of place on the table rather than off by a minus sign.
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - 100-foot deep Andes lake disappears

JonathanThurn writes: CNN reports that "a five-acre glacial lake in Chile's southern Andes has disappeared" between March and May of this year. No earthquakes were reported in the area, but scientists speculate that water may have escaped through a fissure in the lake's base. In other news Carmen Sandiago was reported to be in a Spanish-speaking country whose coat of arms includes the condor and the huemul and whose southern-most region includes the Drake Passage. Good luck gumshoes!
