7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

There are two big fears surrounding the prospect of the Mir Space Station crashing to earth.


  1. It might hit you on the head
  2. It might hit Taco Bell's floating target, and everyone in the US will get a free Taco

If you're worried about the first possibility then visit eBay and bid for the 'Crashing MIR Space Station Detecto-Hat'. It looks quite effective, and is reasonably priced.

As for Taco Bell's PR stunt, well just pray it hits Tonga instead. Taco Bell is offering a free Taco to everyone in the US if the core of the Mir space station hits a floating Taco Bell target placed in the South Pacific.

It has created a 40 by 40-foot target, painted with a Bell bull's-eye and bold purple letters stating: "Free Taco Here."

This will float off the coast of Australia in advance of Mir's descent.

Coupon distribution, redemption and offer details will be made available to consumers on the Taco Bell Web site.

With this kind of initiative it looks like the scenario painted in the film 'Demolition Man', where Taco Bell has won the fastfood wars, wasn't so far off. ®
