Psyching out NASA

“Given the state of Massachusetts has an space, and the asteroid Psyche (C8) has a quantity, it’s a very meaningless comparability from NASA (which as soon as crashed a spacecraft into Mars when complicated metric and imperial items). As your correspondent suggests, the variety of Sydney Harbours (Sydharbs) is healthier,” thinks John Burman of Port Macquarie. “However most denizens of Massachusetts wouldn’t know the place Sydney is, not to mention the dimensions of its harbour.”

Time to present discover on the good signal hunt (C8), however not earlier than these things, beginning with Michael Morton-Evans of Mosman: “My father had a buddy who used to journey the world with a small screwdriver in his pocket. He would unscrew indicators that caught his eye and convey them house to show in his downstairs dunny. A favorite got here from a Swiss prepare and skim: ‘It Is Forbidden to Soar Up and Down Whereas the Practice Is in Movement’. Nonetheless, my favorite of all time was an indication I noticed hanging over the Ginza, in Tokyo, which declared in English: ‘Right here Is Very Good Place to Have Accidents’.”

“In a parking station, two indicators, one hanging beneath the opposite: ‘Wayout’, ‘Parking’. I think about spectacular car actions!” We thank Joe Moore of Blaxland.

Daniel Flesch of Bellingen remembers that “in London, many moons previous, I noticed an indication that had initially learn ‘Non-public Mews. No Parking Allowed’ altered to learn ‘Non-public Mews. No Barking Aloud’”.

We might hear a pin drop when Izzy Perko of Gundagai described tackling the What3words app, an apparently simple “proprietary geocode system” for figuring out any location on Earth with a decision of about three metres: “I put in ‘voice.reality.treaty’ and acquired a distant 3x3m location in western Alaska. However placing in ‘truths.voices.treaty’ reveals a 3x3m spot close to Dingee in western Victoria. Against this, ‘barn.full.hi there’ is the sq. contained in the Members’ Corridor of Parliament Home, Canberra! The names given are supposed to be randomly generated, however the pc could have a sly sense of humour.”

“I’m not your man Edward Loong (C8), however class alumni from my uni days pre-Whitlam and later do get a C8 guernsey sometimes,” replies the true Bob Warren of Forster.

Whereas Bev Bayer of Kingston (ACT) likes the Nissan S-Cargo, Christo Curtis of Beaconsfield notes that “Automobile names being problematic in different languages (C8) didn’t deter Mitsubishi after they launched the Pajero. The Spanish discovered the Mitsubishi Wanker hilarious.”
