I'm not sure about Barack Obama's latest conciliation strategy, whereby he invites those aggrieved with each other round for a beer. Is he going to implement this more widely and try to use it to stop wars and stuff? This could be a good time for warring nations, it's a sellers' market as different stylists compete for there trade. There's Tony Blair, trying to get the muslims and the jews to put aside their different and join with the christians to gang up on the atheists, and Barack Obama's going to be wanting them to come round for a beer instead. Then apologising for offering the muslims beer and suggesting they come around for a coffee to talk about it. He must be pretty confident in his charm. He'd better make sure that doesn't show. People don't really like that. Well, they wouldn't like it from him. It's all about the president's precedent. That's not how he pitched it. He could get away with it if he'd been the cheeky chappy from the start, but now he'll have to move more slowly. Start throwing in the odd gag like 'sorry I'm late, I was looking in the mirror.' Make it part of his schtick. Barack, if you're reading this and would like further advice, just leave a comment and I'll get back to you, I'm sure we can work something out. Charisma machine to charisma machine.

In another news I read that Europe's Mars Rover will now be going in 2018 instead of 2016, which was instead of 2011. I don't think I even knew there was going to be one, so they could have cancelled it, but they didn't want to. It's also now going to be the same as the American 2013 one, probably. So presumably they're going to be looking at stuff the Americans thought was less interesting than whatever they're going to be looking at instead. The European one's going to look for signs of life. When will this Mars fetish end? Only when finally the Google rover is going all over Mars taking 'street view' pictures will we discover life, for the Martians will jump about hopping mad, saying on the news that people will rob their houses (or whatever they have) if they're on Google Mars Street View. Well, if they do that they're idiots, for as well as giving themselves away like a stupid Earthling they don't need to worry about the jewellery they've got locked in the safe. We'll be far more interested in stealing any oil they have. Stupid Martians, no wonder people rob their houses (or whatever they have).
that's all from me for now
see you around
