my laptop takes a while to fire up its beefy innards, wheezing on the billows (generating enough heat to set up a popcorn maker, or hair-curler. i'm looking into the hardware). each time, my desktop'll display a picture of a bubble-base on a moon. it looks like a primary school science fair contribution, but it's actually from the NASA archives ("Billy, get those crayons out of your mouth"). you'd think they were beyond the 'artist's impression' stage of conjecture, but... regardless, every day the machine comes on, and i have a long 4 minutes of blinking shortcuts. during this, i count how many moonmen i can find. assuming there's two in the launched shuttle, how many moonmen can you see?
