These descents of mine beneath the sea seemed to partake of a real cosmic character. First of all there was the complete and utter loneliness and isolation, a feeling wholly unlike the isolation felt when removed from fellow men by mere distance ... .

To be sure, we do not have no absolute proof that mars is inhabited [...] Personally, I have my faith on the feeble planetary electrical disturbances which I discovered in the summer of 1899, and which according to my investigations, could not have originated from the Sun, the Moon, of Venus. Further study since has satisfied me they must have emanated from Mars. - Nikola Tesla

Our rockets can find Halley's comet, and fly to Venus with amazing accuracy, but side by side with these scientific and technical triumphs is an obvious lack of efficiency in using scientific achievements for economic needs, and many Soviet household appliances are of poor quality.mikhail gorbachev
His wicked sense of humour suggests exciting sex His fingers focus on her Her touches He's Venus as a Boy!björk guðmundsdóttir
