    I would not call that biting the dust; that is called coming into the light, my friend.

    As an entomology hobbyist, whenever I hear "Solomon Islands," I think about the magnificent velvet blue birdwing butterfly: Ornithoptera priamus urvillianus. It is an endangered species that is available only from specialized butterfly farms on the Solomon islands and comes with a CITES certificate when they export the specimens to you to make beautiful entomology frames with. I think I shall order a few pairs soon. Here is a picture; it is about the 5.5 inches across the wingtips.

    Industrious White House Appears to Have Altered a Hurricane Dorian Map to Corroborate a Trump Lie
    Ryan Bort Rolling Stone•September 4, 2019
    [​IMG]

    On Sunday, it happened to be that Hurricane Dorian was going to hit South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama “(much) harder than anticipated.” The only problem with the president’s warning was that Alabama was not in the storm’s path. The National Weather Service confirmed the state was not in danger shortly after Trump’s tweet. “Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian,” wrote NWS Birmingham. “We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east.”

    Trump was caught lying about Hurricane Dorian’s death march to Alabama, but it didn’t matter. Like any good Costanza disciple, he believed it. Thus, Dorian was indeed heading toward Alabama, and anyone saying otherwise was Fake News. On Monday it was ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl.

    He tweets, "Such a phony hurricane report by lightweight reporter @jonkarl of @ABCWorldNews. I suggested yesterday at FEMA that, along with Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, even Alabama could possibly come into play, which WAS true. They made a big deal about this when in fact, under certain original scenarios, it was in fact correct that Alabama could have received some “hurt.” Always good to be prepared! But the Fake News is only interested in demeaning and belittling. Didn’t play my whole sentence or statement. Bad people!"

    When discussing “all of the other states” the storm was projected to hit, the president held up a blown-up map detailing the storm’s path. A white line representing the reach of the storm curves through the Florida panhandle and up into Georgia, but does not reach as far west as Alabama. What does reach into Alabama is a black line, which appears to have been drawn onto the map with a magic marker.

    When Trump was asked to explain why the map was altered, he said: “I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know.” He also maintained that “many models” showed lines going “directly through” Alabama. “[It] was going to be hit very hard,” said the president.

    I don't know who this guy is commenting through live stream of the Indian lander but you can see him know something's wrong before most of the crowd does. I think it starts around 02:21:00.

    I get conflicting news.

    The Indian pm stated their whole mission was entirely domestic project. But I read a poster saying nasa provided assistance with whole mid course guidance, telecommunications and flight monitoring. Until the actual moon landing part.

    Is that true?

    I guess it depends on what they define as domestic. I heard it before on previous launches then I hear they had Russian assistance.

    This guy on his own figured the landing velocity was too fast, what a room full of Indian scientists couldn’t, amazing.
