    Don't worry, the chances of anything coming from Venus are a million to one against. And all they've found so far are some tripods. Oh, hang on a sec.

    We all thought it was Mars. But whilst we were looking out to Mars, the Venusians snuck up on us from behind.

    There must be some sort of chemical reaction to create it there - pressure, temperature, something catalytic? - that precludes it here.

    Of all our neighbours, Venus? I just don't believe there are biological processes going on in that environment.

    A Mediterranean Cyclone is going on at the moment.

    Not a very common event, but they can be quite nasty.

    I've consulted President Trump and he assures me it's a 'fake cyclone' caused by poor 'meteorological management.'

    :P

    The State of California makes great use of prisoners as firefighters, and then usually denies them genuine employment as firefighters upon their release, due to their prison record.
