Out of the Blue

We finally got the roadside assistance guy out to jumpstart MrsBlue's dead car, so it was homeside assistance in this case. He got it started, and confirmed what we suspected, that the battery was basically shot. So rather than let it idle to try and recharge the battery, I just drove it to the auto parts store and replaced the battery. It's now working right again, and it's nice to have confidence in it, especially in winter weather. Thankfully it died in front of our house where it was easy enough to deal with, rather than leaving us stranded somewhere.

I get that the US wants to protect their satellites and I can understand that there's historically been creative flourish when it comes to naming said agencies/weapons/plans.

But I keep picturing battles in space like in Moonraker when I hear these ridiculous titles. And Pence delivers speeches on the subject like some B-grade actor from Mars Attacks.
We all verped in our mouths when Homeland Security was formed.
And why in the hell would anyone assign a name like warp speed to vaccine development, it gives the mouth breathing psycho anti vaxxers one more thing to drool over.
We live in weird fucking times.
