Suggest repurposing the JWST to search for exo-planets that might potentially be home to chorizo and other forms of sausage.

That's no moon, it's a chorizo! https://www.cnn.com...rizo-intl-scli-scn/

       It would have saved a lot of money if, instead of being fitted with expensive optics and being lifted into orbit, the James Webb Sausage Telescope had been installed in a butchers shop

       This is silly. Everyone knows that Proximans are Kosher.

       Voice's dirty joke about being kosher and butchering sausages.
Voice, Aug 05 2022
  

       This prank is the wurst.   

       "To seek out strange new wursts and boldly go where no man has gone before"   

       Not a new idea as photographer Christopher Jonassen showed in 2013. [link]

       is that the perfume that Depp advertises?

       // Proximans are Kosher //   

       Of course. But unlike the Terran variety, the Proximan pig is a ruminant and has split hooves. Kosher, but not Hallel - as from Proxima Centauri it’s hard to accurately face the animal towards Mecca while slaughtering it.

       Is "face towards Mecca" in a particular direction, or towards a specific spot?

       // a direction or a spot? //   

       Yes. “towards the city of Mecca and specifically to the Ka'abah.” But I’m not sure how accurate it has to be. A Qibla compass (link) only works on Earth and needs some calculation to use. Even in orbit, Muslim astronauts aboard the ISS had to make allowances for their daily meditations - they just had to face towards the Earth. From a few light years away? Best anyone might be able to do is face Sol, and only in the seasons when it was visible.   

       Maybe. I just make this stuff up as I go along.
a1, Aug 08 2022
  

       So you're saying that the original invention of the Star Trek galactic sector calculation system was to direct Muslim astronauts towards the current location of the Ka'abah?
RayfordSteele, Aug 08 2022
  

       Not saying that but it's an interesting thought. I was thinking of posting a Qibla Astrolabe idea along those lines though and was searching for prior art. Hadn't gotten to Star Trek references yet. I was kinda tangled up thinking of other religions' rituals that rely on facing a specific landmark....

       If you are far enough away then spacetime becomes curved and so pointing in the direction of a thing becomes seriously non-trivial
pocmloc, Aug 09 2022
  

       Firstly assume a universe which has purpose and intent dictated by more than its constituent parts. Secondly, assume a universe which is capable of manipulating its internal state. Thirdly, assume a universe which tends toward the maximum utility of its member parts in achieving universal goals. Fourthly, assume maximum utility is best achieved by angry beings. Now you have the cussed universe theory, which assumes the universe is doing whatever will piss you off.
