OTTAWA: CANADA LAUNCHES WORLD'S HEAVIEST SATELLITE

Canada has put the world's heaviest satellite into space. The Anik F-2 satellite was launched on Saturday night from the European space base in French Guyana. It was carried into orbit by a European Ariane-5 rocket. At six tonnes, Anik F-2 is the world's heaviest satellite, and its solar array panels stretch to almost 50 metres when fully open. Anik F-2 will provide communications services to remote Canadian communities not previously served. Tests on its functioning will continue throughout the summer, and the satellite will begin service this fall. It's expected to stay in orbit for 15 years.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Indeed it is CH.
I only subscribe to the belief that the earth is flat whilst drunk, when I get to the edge,
and fall off.

The Americans to the south are not quite as laid back and a hell of a lot more outspoken (and a lot of times thats not as bad as be'in quite).

As far as being on the plump side, I am in my mid to late 40's can still do a straight 10 mile run (but it takes the hell of me (prefer 6).

But what gets me is your soccer over there, more power to you nice to see
such extreeme physical action.
