How to capture an asteroid for return to Earth. Plus getting samples back to ground. Though I expect they'll send robots rather than humans to retrieve samples.

I think the "major cities" is confusing things there.
Unless I am missing something, that map is pretty much what I'd expect.

Once had a somewhat similar poop incident with my son.
Still didn't regret having him.

I think every parent gets to experience at least one of these incidents. Mine involved our younger boy and the couch. And he was passed out just like that, too.

I never had a kid poop accident quite that bad. My worst was my son at about 1 year old taking a big grunt in a restaurant. It oozed out the sides of his diaper over the edges of his high chair and hit the floor in the restaurant

I do want to know why that pic has 'Trojan' in the lower right corner. I can see it being maybe a backhanded chastisement about what could happen if you don't use a condom . . maybe. Though I think it would make for a very poor advertisement.

Okaaay, though not funny to me. Perhaps its just because I'm an old fart. However I feel after having children of my own that's in very poor taste. I would not give my son up, by using a condom, even if he had done the above ten times over.

Then again, I'm not the target audience. I can imagine it would be an effective joke for young men.

My son wasn't quite as bad either, but more strange.

He was about 2 months into potty training, and doing great.
Then we went camping for a week. He got to pee outside all the time and used outhouses/pit toilets for the first time.
He asked about what was "down there" when seeing the outhouse toilet . I told him it was a "nightmare".

Anyway, when we got home, my wife and I were unpacking the car (and cleaning up our daughter's car sickness --she puked the moment I put the car in park--couldn't wait one more second).

At some point my wife went to the bathroom and noticed some human waste on the seat. She went to my son to ask him about it, slowly noticing that there was human waste on the walls, and the door, etc.
later she found the turd under the bathmat.

We are guessing that his curiosity about the whole poop thing got the better of him and he decided to poop on the floor and check it out. Then couldn't figure out what to do with it after that and just put the bath mat over it.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

I'm with you there, but on the eleventh one, he's out of here.

I'll wait until November. We are taking our honeymoon then, and the plan is to go to Florida for DisneyWorld, Universal, and then a drive down the coast to Cape Canaveral. Then maybe I can buy a squishes wash cloth from the source.

Oh...

Wait...

I am not going to China. ;)

I've seen that whole sequence and it gets worse.

I can't imagine the kind of dreams those poor workers must have to deal with.
