Here's something to take everyone's mind off the credit crunch. It turns out we're going to collide with the galaxy M31 in Andromeda.
Okay, it isn't going to happen for a little while, but there is much small detail to enjoy in this story. For instance, there are clouds of alcohol floating between the stars. And the Solar System's moseying through space at 600,000 miles an hour. Why don't we all suffer from really bad motion sickness?

"All that blasted Tesco's rum Hutch keeps foisting on us (and that we keep "disposing" of)..."

I've often wondered if the roar of airplane toilets is because they're actually wormholes into intergalactic space . . .

All that blasted Tesco's rum

Funny you should have said that. Here's related news:

So, when he says it's Tescos rum that he's come home with, it's more likely he's just been siphoning the tanks in the Tescos car park . . .

Hang onto that "galactic straw" you got in your box of cereal: you're going to need it!
