Meanwhile, on Mars

Curiosity landed on Mars in 2012 for a two-year mission. It's still working, though, almost nine years later. You can't blame it for wanting to come home and retire. This comic is from CommitStrip.

'D**ned" ?
Damned ? Sent to hell ... hardly a swear word.
Could be darned ... fixed by yarn.
Or downed ... like a sudden loss of flight.

I find it funny that people often pre-empt any censorship with their own pen, guess it is fear of some criticising overlord as they are happy to have us mentally embrace the word.

It is similar to the burning paper bag on the doorstop, having rung the bell and run ... shit of a th*ng to do.
