Our galaxy has only a hundred billion. Knowing us we will go to war long before we collide, though.

PREPARE FOR WAR AGAINST THE ANDROMEDA GALAXY!

Are you SURE polar bears are in serious decline?

This sounds suspiciously like something a seal would say.

To be fair, there is room for distinctions inside the cloud metaphor. Regular cloud services will now be called the "cumulus" cloud, and the Internet2 service is the "cirrostratus" cloud, because it has faster winds.

In theory, the difference between practice and theory is due to practical considerations that theorists find it impractical to fit into their theories.

In practice, theory uses the practice of theorizing about practical matters, while not noticing that the theoretical method practically distorts the theory beyond application to practice.

Theoretically then, the practical facts are that theory is in practice good for predicting what happens in theory, but impractical as a theory with direct implications for practice, except where theory states that the practice is sufficiently close to the theory to make any difference, for all practical purposes, theoretically zero.

In practice this does not happen very often.

Further, if the density of the pizza is p, the Earth's mass times the gravitational constant is u, and the pizza's distance to the center of the Earth is l, the force on that pizza is p*i*z*z*a*p*u / l*l.

If you eat pie today, you will increase your circumference by 2*pi*dr.

And if the volume of a pizza of radius z and thickness a is pi*z*z*a, and its density is p, and the Earth's mass times the gravitational constant is u and its distance from the center is l, the force pulling on that pizza is pi*z*z*a*p*u / l*l.

## Impact Crater Origin of Mars Meteorites Discovered11

astroengine writes "Out of the thousands of craters scarring the face of Mars, one has emerged as the likely source of most of the Martian meteorites that have been recovered on Earth, a new study shows. Researchers pinpoint Mojave Crater, a 34 mile (55 kilometer) wide basin on the planet's equator, as the origin of the so-called 'shergottites' meteorites, a family that includes about 75 percent of the roughly 150 known Martian meteorites. The crater is located slightly north and east of Meridian Planum, where NASA's Mars rover Opportunity landed in January 2004."

The program isn't debugged until the last user is dead.
