Well, it's Apocalypse Week on the BBC:

And that makes me suspect that the real reason for Steve Bannon's leaving the White House at this precise moment is that he's been summoned back down to Hell to help Satan and the other demons toss souls into the fiery pit with gleeful abandon.

I just got a notification from FedEx (I have an account with them, so, I get some "Service Alert"s. This one got me smiling.

Quote:

"FedEx is closely monitoring potential effects of the total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21, 2017. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our team members, and we will implement contingency plans as necessary. Events of this nature often cause pickup and delivery delays and disruptions for FedEx customers. FedEx is prepared to provide service to the best of its ability."


Ghm... Is that about the traffic and the crowds, or about the 2.5 minutes of darkness?

And another thought: "events of this NATURE"...
Can we pick a different Nature? The one where solar eclipses last longer?
And not that far from home? And with all 7 moons? ;-)

Cheers,

Igor
