British Launch Skynet

Oh noes, the end is nigh!

Yes, the British launched the first of the Skynet 5 family of satellites. It's rather amusing that a modern high technology product shares its name with the computer from the Terminator movies.

It's less amusing that people persist in accusing the UK of being arrogant or dumb, considering the first Skynet satellite was launched in 1969. Come on, there're plenty of things to make fun of the UK for, pick one that's actually true :)
