do I sense a Hitchhikers joke.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Got to hand it to the Ukrainians, they know how to steal the initiative.

Rockets, partisans, spec ops deep strikes and drones...oh my!

seems like a very busy night!
Explosions at munitions depot, Timonovo Belgorod
Explosions at Stary Oskol Airfield Belgorod
Explosions in Nova Kakhovka Kherson
Explosions near Belbek airport Crimea
Air defence activity near Kerch strait
Russian bases hit in Luhansk
Russian FSB base hit W Crimea

  Well, at least the Russians have a new admiral for the Black Sea Fleet.  Meanwhile they are "defending" the big Z nuke facility (what's odd is that it would not have needed defending if they
had not attacked there in the first place...it's like "you made me do it so its your fault i'm eternally an idiot") this is from CNN:

Russian officials have said inspectors should travel to the plant via Russian territory, which Ukraine opposes. In addition, they have refused to withdraw troops from the facility, saying they are necessary to defend it against potential attacks.

Anonymous Brit declares half of Russia's Black Sea Naval Air Power poofed in that base attack we talked so much about last week:

The article comes with a new colorized and expanded before-after photo set.

Tom Rogan at the Washington Examiner reports that his sources in Britain credit SAS & SIS teams on the ground for helping the Uks strike far beyond the front.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post got hold of some docs captured by the Ukrainians, and has dropped a super-chewy 6-part article (10 to 15 pages depending on formatting, I would guess!) on how the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB in Russian with English letters) dropped the ball hard and repeatedly in the leadup to the invasion -- and afterward:

ya, the USAF is like YES! we can finally get rid of these.
though if it happens I think it would be more of a post war rebuilding effort.
