JOSH: You know, uh, Donna got a hold of this fax that was sent to the press office from the O.S.F. at NASA.
C.J.: What, something falling out of the sky?
C.J.: We get that fax once a week.
JOSH: Yeah, but Donna doesn’t know that. She thinks it’s an emergency.
C.J.: And you didn’t want to tell her?
JOSH: No, ‘cause the other way you get a day’s worth of entertainment without leaving the office. She doesn’t know that these things fall out of the sky all the time… once every ten days, as a matter of fact. Since the first year we started putting man-made objects in space, 17,000 have come back and remarkably, not one person has been hit. [beat] So I suppose there’s an argument to be made that we’re due.
C.J.: Yeah. You picked me right up there, Josh.

It is once again time to rename this tumblr: TWW is always relevant. Also, SciShow continues to be excellent. My friends are all so good at projects.
