    I’ve heard that the Earth itself is so round that if a polished glass marble were expanded to the size of the planet, its surface would be much rougher

    Lasers can blind pilots who have no way of knowing when some nimrod on the ground might make such an attack. The sun’s position is known and knowable. Blind pilots can crash planes. Crashing planes kill people in the plane and on the ground. So of course it’s illegal. Sheesh.

    Is there any country where aiming a laser at a plane is legal?

    Can silver48 see that his comments are not showing up here?

    His absence is a loss for us.

    The strip is okay but I really stay for the comedy. If that goes then this one comes off my list.

    If indeed the joksters have been banned, I hope all the whiners are satisfied. Now we’re stuck with lame RBION comments, of which I suspect there will be few. I looked forward to the comments—and come to think of it, none of those I looked forward to were from the whiners. Oh, just so I don’t get banned—WOW, the roundest object in the universe! Wow, the biggest canyon in the universe! Wow, you can’t shine a laser at an airplane pilot.

    Pierre is a WW1 French flying ace and a hero amongst his peers! He also has quite a reputation as an excellent lover! This evening he has a lovely young can can dancer in bed in his boudoir and she is ready to experience the splendor that is Pierre! He walks over to her with a bottle of cognac and proceeds to pour some on her You know what! She says “Oh Pierre you are so romantic.” Pierre says"but of course Mon Cherie." With no warning, he strikes a match and ignites the cognac! She screams in agony “Why did you do that Pierre are you mad?” The WW1 French flying ace says “When Pierre goes down, he goes down in flames!” With that i bid you adieu!

    Nah, he remembers when it was square in the very beginning…he just didn’t want everyone to think he was bragging or even, merciful heavens, exaggerating!

    How did they determine that roundness from so far away? And without going blind from the light?

    Actually Uranus has 27 moons, the smallest of which is called Dingleberry. Believe it or Not.

    Would you want a pilot blinded by a laser try to land in your airport?

    I assume that star isn’t spinning? That’d make it bulge around the equator like our Earth and Sun do…

    Whatever’s “against the law”…federal or whatever, they’ll always be an unending group of people that’ll do it. Sad but very true.
