Well I said yesterday that today I'd rattle on about the streamlined paint mixing I've been doing on these A* pages of the past few days, but when I said that I had managed to reckon without the impact on my schedule all of yesterday's art show supervision and bloggetry would have, so, in short, it's late and I gotta go to bed. : P This state of tardiness will probably persist for the rest of the week, but *next* week is a whole new week in which to get behind, so I think I'll manage to be able to write about the paint stuff properly then. And by that time I ought to have a better perspective on this newfangled paint mixing, so I'll know a little bit more of what I'm talking about. Yeah... Yeah, that's the ticket!

So for today I'll just dump a space science link on you, it's a recent BBC article about how various analyses of comet 67P by the Rosetta probe—studying its strata layers visible in deep pits, an apparent crack across its thin "neck," and the direction of local gravity across its irregular surface—strongly suggest that the comet was once *two* comets that joined together ever so gently while sailing along similar paths through space. The article goes on to point out a few other known comets that have dual-lobed shapes similar to 67P's "rubber duck" shape, and speculates that they might be the products of similar comet mergings.

Yeah, a rear attack, I like the sound of that!
