When S2 passed by the black hole at a distance just 120 times that of the Earth from the Sun, it reached an astonishing orbital velocity of 8,000 km/s. That corresponds to about 2.7% of the speed of light.
That is shifting!

Quote:
Three thieves stole a shark from an aquarium by removing it from a tank and disguising it as a baby in a pushchair

MPs who bring prostitutes into parliament will face the sack under Westminster’s first code of conduct
How odd that they would make a specific rule for this … I don't think I've ever worked anywhere that felt it necessary to explicitly state "no prostitutes in the workplace".

A US restaurant is using marijuana to sedate lobsters before killing them.
That's alright then... they still drop the poor critters into boiling water, but at least they're stoned!
