Hi Deefstes

Damn, and I thought that this thread was about star signs!... You know, forumites' personality traits, financial situations, which roads and what average speed you drive in the KNP if born under a certain star sign, whether, according to one's sign, you have a knack for using a bush toilet (or not), whether you are a spaceman, ticker or maximizer, all according to the star sign under which you were born. Or maybe that is astrol... astrolo... Aagh, never mind! :mrgreen:

Great info, keep it coming! :dance:

:yaya:

I was reading that European astronomers have discovered 32 new planets outside of our solar system! Some of them with maybe the potential for life. :big_eyes:

Cool! I've got dibs on a nice secluded island with a sunbathed beach. But wait, they won't be anywhere near the sun. So make that a Gliese 581 bathed beach. :D

I believe that some of them are closer to the local Sol than Mercury is - major SOL block might be required :wink: :big_eyes:
