#5  Gentlemen do not bump one another's satellites. Which brings to mind a phrase heard on NPR years ago as a Sedaris or Vowell type was subtly diminishing an innocent old cowpoke for having asked confusedly re gay guys and what they get up to, "So, do they just go off in the bushes and bump dickheads, or what?" Something like that, anyway.

#2  OK, let's talk about this story about Luch-Olimp passing "too closely" to the French-Italian military communications satellite ATHENA-FIDUS.

Did the French try to surrender?
