It looks prime for development, sadly it just moves a bit too fast to get the builders on board.

Glad he added he the ET subtitle, otherwise I might have needed Finton O'Toole to explain what the hell he was on about.

This is an incredibly cool interstellar object, someone was saying on PM earlier that it was so fast that it was already out of sight before we knew it was even there. I would welcome these enigmatic and small objects. It is the idea of rogue planets that scare the shit out of me, nothing to do with that von Trier movie either.

Pedantry: there's a letter missing at the start of the name here: the ʻokina (which is also conveniently the first letter of the word ʻokina), a kind of Hawaiian glottal stop.

Having said that,

ʻoumuamua, papa ʻoumuamua
papa ʻoumuamua, ʻoumuamua
wella don't you know about the bird,
well everybody knows that the bird is the word
etc

i just now overheard a little old man excitedly explaining the situation to a stranger in the w.h.smiths at liverpool street station: he perhaps rather boldly began by insisting that scientists were excited bcz it is "not made of rock"

Artemis, the Holy Black Stone of Mecca, is considered a sacred meteorite from the gods by the Muslim faith.

"And when the town clerk had quieted the crowd, he said, "Men of Ephesus, what man is there who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is temple keeper of the great Artemis, and of the sacred stone that fell from the sky?"

Jamaican Black Stone, which is a mysterious and allegedly dangerous substance that some men rub onto their knob to cure premature ejaculation and then have four hour sex marathons. In 2008 somebody tried eating some and died, some reports say it contains poisonous Toad venom.

similarities and differences between oumuamua and the poo i did this morning:

similar shape, different size
one means "messenger from distant past," the other is a messenger from my recent past
