    "Now it's just a step to the right"

    "Kool ta Tenlag!" the urgent message ripped through static

    "What's that commander?" flight control replied, "you sound troubled".

    "T'nevah uoy nees eht swen!? Er'ew rednu kcatta!" the voice was strained and high pitched.

    "State your call-sign commander. What seems to be the problem?"

    [explosions pierced the static]

    "Commander, what's your location. Over"

    "Gnimoc ni toh! Eht stroper era eurt!"

    "Sorry commander, you're still not clear. What's your xyz? What's the trouble?"

    "Kool ta Tenlag uoy stoidi! Daer eht gnikcuf swen!".

    The officer glanced at his monitor. Red Alert! Sector-wide evac in progress. Thargoids Warping Time. Supercruise Broken! No Jumps Left.

    Did You Know, Gentle Reader?

    Of course, gentle reader, like any infant Fflogrilliondoirjhnerwohwebh from the planet Womwomadegiowhnerbanteaimaeyabmeoweivtjwqntinvpq, you surely knew that Oxbow Septus-Nostrum was a key figure behind the evolution of collective data analysis amongst interstellar ships, today known as GalNet.

    But this you did not know: Ebeneezer Widnepipe was actually inventor of the Gal Net, way back in 1874 on that quaint, archaic mudball we ironically still call Earth. Standing at Hyde Park Corner, any unsuspecting young maiden passing by would find herself flailing in the heavy duty mesh of his massive butterfly net. His impressive collection of 3,974 ladies included Queen Victoria herself.

    The Fake And The Furious

    One journalist was selected and sent off with his equipment to the other side of the galaxy to report what was happening there.
    They figured since no one had dided it, it's was news so they can reported it every day.
    Not very much happened for a long time,and the reports continued to flood in.
    The public were rivetted to their screens as news of not very much happening today echoed around the bars and coffee houses,
    water coolers and service exits.
    So when they cut the feed,cities erupted in riots in which nobody was hurt and no property destroyed.

    I thought doned was the past participle of dided

    Well,exactly.It's that sort of behaviour that causes clauses to subjunct and infinitives to split.Mind you,i'm pro noun,so i may be a little biased.

    I realised long ago that there is no such thing as a subjunctive clause, but I just kept on pretending there was because I didn't want to stop getting Christmas presents

    Cmdr pseudonym - Made to make your eyes water

    The Gal-Net hadn't been deployed in centuries.
    Not since the great Galatic Midden XXVth, known as the malodorous, escaped from his cell and began walking around the local moon.
    Many fatalities happened that day as the stench overpowered peoples nasal systems moonwide.
    The Gal-Net needed to be deployed today to capture the most current incarnation of Galatic Midden, the XXXIIIrd.
    Although his 'Friends' call him the 'Dirty Turd'...
    He was found to be collaborating with a one Mr Simoof in creating the galaxies most dangerous biological weapon. T
    he Gal-Net was dropped on both of them..

    Simoof died of the vapours...

    Say Hi to Watha: an exerpt

    From their midst stepped forth a pirate,askew of hat,potato shaped.

    'Shamed were they who set the UA down upon the dove above.
    Immortalised in freakish couplets those who chose reply with love.

    Many pilots dropped their cargo, turned and jumped toward the scene,
    Holds now stuffed with meta alloys,giving hope once more a dream.

    Thrusters glaring,klaxons blaring,through the night and on till dawn.
    Flights of outraged pilots flaring,bringing aid,defying scorn.'

    Mighty Galnet,Awesome Galnet,told the story,calmed the crowd.
    Gave the story to a pirate and he then read it out aloud.

    This Just In ...

    And now we go over to our Roving Reporter, Roger Ising

    "Yes I am here at the scene where a Carizarding was spotted in a Panamanian Petting Zoo looking for a Salisbury Swamp Sock wearing a Cosby Sweater eating an Alabama Tuna Melt and drinking a sour apple smoothie."

    And now a word from our sponsors ...

    "This White Christmas, cumakazi have a Blue Cheese surprise with baconasie and masrhmallowing for desert, and get an extra ten percent off if you mention the code Chinese Aloha. But hurry, it'll simba gone then it's gone forever!"

    And now the weather with Chesty ...

    The truth about Galnet

    Galnet, the shining beacon of truth. At least that's what they tell you.
    Truth is relative, there is always some bias. While Galnet isn't as overtly biased as some other news sources the hidden agendas are of concern. Who owns it? who decides which stories at aired and which are canned? How are they trying to shape peoples views and to what end?
    I could tell you what I know. You probably wouldn't believe me. But if you did, you would be shocked and outraged. But I won't do that. Knowing the truth can be very detrimental to your health.
