New moon.... I saw you standing alone....

That was a bad pun and I appologise profusely. Moving swiftly on I have a question for you all. How many moons does the earth have? If you answered 'one' then you are WRONG! I know, I know... how can we have more than one moon? Surely someone would have said something by now? Well it turns out that we may have many Quasi-Moons although only one is with us right now.

What the hell is a Quasi-Moon anyway? Well currently it's an asteroid with the catchy name '2003 YN107'. This lump of rock usually orbits the Sun in a relatively similar path to Earth but recently its taken to spinning around us... Are we in danger? Who knows but it's exciting!

Go and have a peek at New Scientist to get the fully monty.

Oh and if you answered two, you are correct... which is annoying because nobody likes a smart-arse.

Two is wrong - the correct answer is one-and-a-quarter. :)

And yes, I still am hanging around this site. Lame eh?

Why? Dear god... why do you keep coming back? Anyone would think you like this place or something ;)

No, I just get very, *very* bored in IT lessons. And break. And lunch. And after school. And before school.

Incidentally, putting a pun in a sentence where you appologise for the previous sentence is hypocritical. (And I hope it was intended.)

I must admit, I missed it first time round...

Whippee, IT coursework *and* Maths coursework handed in today! No work two weeks :D

*Anyway*, where did you get those "bought to you by" messages?

By R3m0t |

Made them ourselves ofcourse =)

You really should idle in the IRC channel, this comment thread is already a bit off topic. ( irc.int13h.com #int13h )
