And Now For Something Completely Different.
The Monty Python Reunion Show

Wow, Monty Python to reunite for their first new show since 1983. 

Five old British lads, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Michael Palin and Terry Jones,, as well as Eric Idle, Terrys Gilliam and Jones, & John Cleese ironically all in their 70s now, less the sublimely insane Graham Chapman, who passed away in 1989, 
will put on a theatre show, according to
the Crimson Permanent Assurance, Ltd.

:-) Yahoo-oo!!

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.

The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see

Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.

Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.

It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.

We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.

We go 'round every two hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding

In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,

How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

And here I thought a Monty Python reunion was going to require bullets (http://www.intriguing.com/mp/_scripts/mpfaq.php, next to last question).
