    What do you call the curve defined by a rope hanging from two points? A CATenary, of course! Couldn’t resist pointing that out.
    Robert, I enjoyed your appearance on The Space Show last night, but the next time you speak to David Livingston please ask him to spend less time talking and to stop interrupting you so much! Hah!

  • “CATenary.” Heh.

    As for my appearance on the Space Show, feel free to make that comment on the Space Show blog: It definitely got a laugh out of me, considering the number of times David has complained to me that I talk too much and don’t let him get a word in.

  • Now we know what ‘the catbird seat’ looks like.
