Yeah. I had never heard the term "engine rich" before this landing attempt.

I was just poking him in the ribs. He has been so head down working the past few weeks that it would not surprise me if he didn't know that the US White House is under new management.

Funny. Seriously.

We are well are of what's going on.

The "Great" US of A matters less to us than what's going on in other places.

Deal with it. Seriously.

US significance is on a slippery slope, except that the PTB can still end life on Earth.

Vadahak? The camera operator was drunk, or what? (in fact, he is to be commended for how well he followed that airplane, haha, but my neck hurts!).
And to stay ontopic, following this lady's comment on your linked video, I got to her channel and the next video, which won a subscription (I don't give those easily ). Her channel and web page worth a look.

Much much harder.

You need to sterilize the top few kilometres of the crust for a start.

Ending all life on Earth would be difficult indeed. Ending multicellular life perhaps less so, and multicellular terrestrial life perhaps even less difficult. Ending the human species might be downright easy in comparison.
