Get your moon rocks here!

       I was thinking this would be about putting a load of trinkets in a capsule, sending it to orbit the Moon, then bringing it back and selling them at a premium because they'd "been to the Moon and back".

       // bringing it back and selling them at a premium //   

       Hmmmm.   

       <snigger>   

       Moon rock's no problem - how much do you want ? Minimum order would be ... let's see ... <furious calculations> ... about eight tonnes ? Extra charge if you want it in 20kg bags.   

       Why do you want it by the way ? It's really, really dull stuff ...

       One day they're going to notice that there's nothing left of the dark side, you know.

       It's already mostly scaffolding ....

       Sort of shades of the 'moon' diamonds in the Man who sold the Moon...

       I went to the moon, and all I got was this lousy scree & dirt.

       ...and a packet of gravel.

       That's nothing. I went to a plantation in India, and all I got was this lousy tea shirt.   

       Still, can't grumble. Sturton went all the way to Vientiane, and all he got was this Laos city shirt.

       I went looking for fossils in hard, dark, opaque rock composed of silica (chalcedony) with an amorphous or microscopically fine-grained texture, occuring as nodules (flint) or, less often, in massive beds.   

       All I got was this chert.

       You're lucky. My parents went to the International Dyslexia Conference and I all I got was this lousy S-thirt.

       Quit whining- we went all the way to Dublin to abduct the President the Republic of Ireland, but all we got is this lousy Taoiseach ...

       I went to Mawangdui, near Changsha, Hunan province in 1973 and all I discovered were these two Laozi silk manuscripts (identified simply as "A" (jia) and "B" (yi)).
