Is it too obvious to mention that Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote a book that explains why this should not be surprising news to anyone?
Apparently this whole situation started because a note from senior management was mistakenly written as shoot the moon instead of shoot for the moon.
Which party is Natalie Portman attending?
I am surprised there has been no mention of Nassim Taleb's book, The Black Swan in all the preceding comments here or in the TFA and it's user comments. I would highly recommend it for anyone pondering this topic.
I'm waiting for a the video, narrated by Natalie Portman - naked and petrified, covered in the aforementioned hot grits.

The report didn't mention the British detonating nukes in Australia at Maralinga.
I use a Logitech VX Nano mouse with my laptop. The precision is exceptional and the wireless range is ridiculously good (it uses 2.4Ghz). Battery life on 2 x AAA is decent also.
As opposed to Australian's house, like Skylab?
