Imagine the whole world watching you stand around doing diddly squat on the taxpayer’s dollar. Well, that’s basically what NASA have done by inviting us all into the lab to watch them build the new Mars Rover.

It’s almost a step down from watching the council. At least when the council are laying pipes / relaying roads there’s one chap working and everybody else discussing how it should be done with a brew in hand.

Is it any wonder they’re all dressed in laboratory burqhas with barely enough room to squint through. I’d be ashamed to stand around too if I was doing as little as this lot as well.

Have they never heard of a performance bonus?

Anyway, the live stream is here:

There’s every chance we’ll be doing something similar at the Butler Sheetmetal Christmas shindig.

Or perhaps not.
