Yeah, that ending was good. Let him rest (both the character AND the actor; Chris Evans has been a busy guy!).

Technical Pedant: it’s not the orbital eccentricity that makes a transit rare; it’s the orbital inclination. The planes of Earth’s orbit and Mercury’s orbit are at different angles, so things don’t always line up (similar to the way we only get solar eclipses occasionally, instead of once every moon orbit).

As is often the case, a brilliant idea failed by crappy implementation :-(

Jacinda Ardern (in the background of the lead photo) is a far better person in all ways.

Or Invisible Woman instead... the lead photo with a woman putting on make-up made me think that was the case.

I’d like to figure out when (& how) it all went wrong, economically. Not too long ago, an ordinary couple could have a house, 2 or 3 kids and save for retirement, all on one income. Now, it’s just a dream for even “middle class” families.

Especially in electric cars. Hot-swapping “standard” batteries should be a thing.

Yeah. It’s the 21st century; we should be working less, stuff should be cheaper/more available, and no-one should be struggling! But some people are greedy, and prefer to take from the rest of us.

Yup, simple to mod. Add a chest strap while you’re at it, as it doesn’t look “bucket” enough to support a paraplegic well (not that you want it too deep, so you can get out of it again...).
