I googled plastination in order to provide the above link - and now, on my CNN Breaking News page - I have two adverts for plastination products. Next time I think I will google `send me gold`. ;)

Given the cost of launch per kilo, you might want to get freeze-dried first. And rather than orbit the Earth, aim for a Lagrange point orbit to minimise maintenance thrust.

I had a funny human interaction today...

My oven lighter broke, so I went to the local supermarket to buy a new one. A guy's gotta fry his steaks, afterall.

They were asking ten bucks.

Well, {!#%@} that {!#%@}. There's a cheaparse Chinese junk shop just down the road.

I went in, looked all around, couldn't find one, so I went up to the counter.

I was the only customer in the shop. She was watching a video on her phone. I stood there, right in front of her, one metre apart, face to face, for two minutes, silent, until her video ended. There's no way she didn't know I was standing there.

When her video ended she was instantly a perfect purveyor.

What would you like?
Have you got one of those long fire lighters?
For stove?
Yes!
*she dashes from behind the counter with enthusiasm and shows me* We have this many!
I'll take that one.
Two dollar!
OK.
You want receipt?
Nah, thanks.
*eyes snapped straight back on her phone*

But you saved $8! I'd have been happy with her doing that if she saved me $4.
(Which she wouldn't have done as we don't have dollars. But it's the principle of the thing).
Apart from that, how was your steak?

I had a job committing arson. But then I had to make sure it didn't spread too far. I was burning {!#%@} for science, and being paid for it.

We were working on weed eradication and native flora rehabilitation. We'd burn a weed-infested paddock, and then re-seed with native grass. Native plants around here actually enjoy being toasted a bit. It's like sex for them.

But one time the fire got a bit out of control, and there was a sudden gust of wind, and I was entirely enveloped in fire.

I closed my eyes and held my breath. When I opened my eyes, I didn't have any eyebrows or eyelashes.

But I remember that wall of orange flame all around me and the smell of burning hair.

I helped my friend burn the stubble on his field one year. You could hear the shrieking of the mice as they died.

The term "muspilli" doesn't have a good etymology. I've always wondered if the "mus-" part was about "mice". It's used once in an old German poem in relation to the prophesied destruction of the world by fire. The shrieks of those mice reminded me of that.

But that's highly unlikely. Probably. I think.

#Not all black-wearing socialists are psychotic totalitarian cunts #Socialism does not equal Communism #You are a socialist because you live in a society not alone in a cave in the woods

It's just because it's cold here in winter, and black absorbs the sun's radiation better. We just all agree it's common sense. {!#%@} commies.

That's how they styled themselves in their propaganda blasts, so it's only polite to maintain the fiction for their accommodation, because I was nothing if not a considerate guest in their country.
