That's No Space Station

Mimas via Dan Sicko

Soon after orbital insertion, Cassini returned its best look yet at the heavily cratered moon Mimas (398 kilometers, 247 miles across). The enormous crater at the top of this image, named Herschel, is about 130 kilometers (80 miles) wide and 10 kilometers (6 miles) deep. (link)

The Magic Word:
Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)

The distinction between Jewish and goyish can be quite subtle, as the
following quote from Lenny Bruce illustrates:

“I’m Jewish. Count Basie’s Jewish. Ray Charles is Jewish.
Eddie Cantor’s goyish. The B’nai Brith is goyish. The Hadassah is
Jewish. Marine Corps — heavy goyish, dangerous.

“Kool-Aid is goyish. All Drake’s Cakes are goyish.
Pumpernickel is Jewish and, as you know, white bread is very goyish.
Instant potatoes — goyish. Black cherry soda’s very Jewish.
Macaroons are ____very Jewish. Fruit salad is Jewish. Lime Jell-O is
goyish. Lime soda is ____very goyish. Trailer parks are so goyish that
Jews won’t go near them …”
— Arthur Naiman, “Every Goy’s Guide to Yiddish”
