    No fuel is used it is run with sky rocketing c.o.l. And the engineer has no idea where the rocket will end up

    This is because of the name CHANDRICA. She is always late.

    It is supposed to be made in France and the lunch is from a Chinese rocket.

    ICCStats Friday, 23 November 2012 08:17 AM

    "lunch" is from a Chines rocket or restaurant?

    Wonder where the money comes for this? Taxpayers, tighten your belts. I read this sign today which says, "TAXPAYERS MONEY AT WORK, SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE". Although I am fully aware what it really means, the signboard tells us the grim truth.
