“And that, my friend, is closure.”

SpaceShipOne landed safely, and Riad Ali seems none the worse for wear.

"If NASA hadn't failed us we'd have cities on the moon."

New Scientist:

Thousands of spectators are expected to descend on the airport of the small desert town of Mojave, where the flight is scheduled for takeoff at 0647 PDT (1447 BST). A jet plane called White Knight will carry rocket SpaceShipOne slung beneath it to a height of 14,330 metres (47,000 feet).

At about 0750 PDT (1550 BST), the jet will release SpaceShipOne. The rocket will fire its engine for about 90 seconds to shoot above 100 kilometres - the official start of space.

"Smell the glove."

Now there's a job with the life-expectancy of a spinal-tap drummer:

DAMASCUS, Syria -- A car bomb killed a leader of the Hamas militant group in Damascus on Sunday and Israel claimed responsibility.

Police at the scene were seen retrieving pieces of the body of Izz Eldine Subhi Sheik Khalil. The death was also reported on a Hamas Web site.

UPDATE: Finally, the serial decapitation of Hamas seems to have an effect on the IQ of its leadership:

GAZA, Gaza Strip - The Palestinian militant group Hamas threatened today to target Israelis abroad after blaming Israel for the killing of a Hamas official in Syria.

"We have let hundreds of thousands of Zionists travel and move in capitals of the world in order not to be the party which transfers the struggle. But the Zionist enemy has done so and should bear the consequences of its actions," said the statement by Izz el-Deen al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas.

A statement unappreciated by the Syrian branch, as you'd imagine:

A Hamas representative in Lebanon denied that the group had taken a decision to attack Israeli targets abroad. He and a spokesman in Damascus said Hamas would launch attacks only inside Israel and the Palestinian territories.

"Get well soon"

"When I was making movies in Holland my films were judged by the critics as decadent, perverted, and sleazy... so I moved to the United States. This was ten years ago. In the meantime, my movies are criticized as being decadent, perverted, and sleazy in this country."

"Nurse Crupp, we're going to need some Valium here."

"Oh Lord, here I am again to ask one more chance for a sinner. Bring back IB Bangin, Lord. You have the power, the might, the super light, to spare this worthless man."

"Because of the wonderful things he does..."

Do you think the wizard can give them new jobs?
