    It was about the point when Captain Goodnight slowly woke, rubbed his eyes with his knuckles and blurry-eyed looked out the window; first confused at not seeing Florida but slowly realizing the auto-pilot had been on another pre-teen fondling, Mojito guzzling bender. He shook his head, comprehending fully his mistake by jokingly ordering, "Time for some fun in the Sun..." before dozing off.

    This reminds me of a "brilliant" idea one of my stoner friends got when I was in high school.

    Says He: Dude, I`m totally gonna design a ship to go to the sun.

    Me: You`re going to die in the process. It`s too hot.

    Says He: Nah, man, I`m going at night.
