All over here; apparently I survived. Will confirm when I've finished my coffee and can be sure I'm alive.

Wait, people didn't really expect that the world was going to end, did they? I thought that was just all the crazies (no offense)

No need to thank me.   8)  I can't tell you how exactly, but I managed to divert the rogue planet myself.  It is truly a remarkable, fantastic, and beyond-epic story... But I'm sworn to secrecy.   ::)

I was not just calling for pizza either.

Of course, saving the world does have some expense to it.... If anyone could spare a could hundred or so, I'm not going to deny them.  I have costs to recoup not, what with diverting a speeding planet and all.  And managing to keep the whole thing quiet.  NASA's in on it with me of course.  It's all hush, hush.  But now they've left me high and dry, footing the bill, telling me they have a tight budget and they'll "see what they can do" to repay me.   ::)

I'll thank you anyway.

Thank you.

Sorry about the sunk costs for saving the world.  I'll go sell some lemonade for you.

It was either save the world or use the effort to produce 1.21 gigawatts.  I was on the fence for awhile, but I went with saving the Earth in the end.
