The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Visitors to the Red Planet

For John, BLUFMankind is again venturing out into space.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

A pretty impressive effort by India has put a satellite in orbit around Mars, the Red Planet.  On the first attempt. 
Mangalyaan, Hindi for Mars craft, cost $74 million to send into space, making it by far the cheapest of recent missions to Mars.  The U.S. spent $671 million getting its Maven satellite to Mars orbit, where it arrived late Sunday.
So why can they do it for 11% of what we spent?

Congratulations to the Indian Space Agency, the Indian Space Research Organisation.
