sure. Bill Murray's character had to relive a single day over and over again -- the day he was reliving happened to be Groundhog Day.
"It's Groundhog Day" means that you feel a sense of deja vu, as though the exact same thing has happened before.

(informal) A situation in which undesirable events appear to be repeating themselves in a cyclical fashion.

geobro knows people in the UK that saw 9/11 '2nd hit' "live" @ GMT 06:20, 09:20, & 11:20.
9/11 2nd hit "live" happened @ 09:20 NYC EasternStandardTime EST, which funnily enuf
is exact same time as i also saw it "live" in the UK - 14:20 GreenwichMeanTime GMT.
:o

:P

geobro, get your people to tell you next Fridays EuroMillions winning numbers
and post them up here before the 19:30 deadline so i can have 149million euros.

Maat said: "I take it that “retired” is your euphemism for unemployable on government benefits?

That seems a little low, Maat?! I take it that “retired” is your euphemism for unemployable on government benefits? That strikes me as attacking 'the poor and dispossessed'.

Mainstream media has a code that works as a deterrent to "thoughtcrime" (read: thinking outside the TV box) and it's naturally built into the language and culture of the desperate pundits. But when you actually look at the names they have come up with as modern "witch" terms, their favorites seem to be rather funny:

lone
loner
terror
terrorist
kook
kooky
kookiest
conspiracy
conspiracy theory
conspiracy theorist
threat
security threat
extreme
extremist
radical
radicalized
nuclear
nuclear program
weapons
traffic
trafficking
oppressive
regime
anti-democratic
fund

It's almost worth printing and selling tee-shirts to rival Nathan Yahoo's "Iranian nuke" parade. Something like this could be quite amusing, if done well. This isn't done well, but what about something like this:

It needs something more to it, or I haven't gotten the phrasing right to quite capture the humor of the words. Any suggestions on a better brand of sarcasm?

It seems to me like too many words. Maybe 1/3 as many would work better?

Yeah, it's hard to summarize all their "witch hunt" words, but I think something about lone, kooky, nutty conspiracy theorists sort of approaches what I'm getting at: it's their words for thinking persons.

I googled about pictures of sunrise and sunset on Mars to get some romantic pictures but it seems the Sun sets and rises at the same point east or west of observer :blink:

I have made another of my drawings. If the astronauts would really have gone to the moon, the sun would have converted them to what we have here: a baked potato wrapped in lunar module foil. :D :D

The big mistake of Armstrong and Aldrin = NASA 1969 was not to bring along parasols like you do on any sunny Earth beach to avoid getting broiled. B)
