@Karen: ...the comet, like a flatulent frat boy, might suddenly belch out a flume of gasses...

What can I say -- your words transported me out into space -- it's like I was there LOL

@Karen: ...though the 10-year-old Rosetta was designed in the 1990s and only has 2 MB of RAM, of which only half can be accessed by the operating system due to CPU budget constraints...

So if they'd had a larger budget, the operating system would have been allowed to access the other half of the RAM?


It really makes you realize what you can do with very little if very little is all you've got...

I'm so pleased that my very prose struck such a chord with you, and I'm sure it was a trip down memory lane to your own, uhm, frat boy antics of the day!

Yep, nice turn of phrase Karen!   Brought to mind an old movie - "King Frat"  the highlight of which was a farting competition...which was won by a girl.  A bit like National Lampoon, but worse..... (You weren't an actress in a past life were you?? :-)

A girl won the competition, eh? How unladylike!  I was an aspiring actress in like second grade or so, but I couldn't stop giggling uncontrollably when I read my lines, so they put me to work behind stage. :-)
