The brand of rum is a safe bet, of course. As for the raspberries: Irene the Mona must have had her hair done. Am I going to apologise for the shallowness of this post ? I’m not, actually. It’s April.

“Astronomers searching for the building blocks of life in a giant dust cloud at the heart of the Milky Way have concluded that it tastes vaguely of raspberries.”
I wonder how long it took for them to travel there, and if it’s all worth it in the end.
In related news, the Electric Universe model predicts that almost all of the places hospitable to life will be found on planets orbiting brown dwarfs. However, the glowing plasma shell of the stars would obscure the night sky, possible civilizations living on nearby planets would have to make do with a starless sky. Queen Isabella would have disoriented explorers. Overseas colonies would come at an extra-high price . The plasma shell would also block incoming or outgoing radio signals.
“Intelligent life forms living on the satellites of a brown dwarf star would be unaware of the spectacle of the universe that we are privileged to witness. Seeing only a purple glow in their sky, they would have no cause to attempt to communicate. This may explain why SETI hears only eerie static on the galactic phone.”
“The brown dwarf ‘Garden of Eden’ comes with a caveat. Stars off the main sequence do not have the self-regulating photospheric discharge to smooth out variations in electrical power input. Consequently, brown dwarfs are subject to sudden outbursts, or ‘flaring,’ when they encounter a surge in the circuit that powers them. These flares could cause sparking to and between the satellites orbiting inside the sheath and lead to sudden extinction events, vast fallout deposits and fossilization.”
