Some events, catastrophic or otherwise, have been known to stop the world. They are events that captured the eyes and ears of the entire planet.
I can think of a number of them in my lifetime:
The Cuban missile crisis
The assassination of JFK
The first moon landing
The Apollo 13 drama
The Tiananmen Square massacre
The Chernobyl disaster
Space Shuttle Challenger disaster
The fall of the Berlin Wall
The death of the Princess of Wales
The events of 9/11
A tweet by Donald Trump.
”What! A tweet by Donald Trump?” you ask.
“Yes indeed. His tweet of this morning has stopped the world.”
A tweet so stupid, that the whole world has stopped in stunned, gob-smacking amazement. You just have to see it:
For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defense and Science!

Well there you have it.
You can now pick yourself up from the floor and carry on with your life safe in the knowledge that this “stable genius” is the apparent leader of the free world, and that everything you ever knew about the moon was wrong.
Oh, and by the way, here’s a screenshot of one of his tweets from three weeks ago, proposing, of all things, that we should go back to the moon.
Sometimes … just sometimes … I am lost for words.
