I guess we will never know if it was caused by faulty workmanship when the thing was being built, an unexpected side-result of the tests they have carried out or outside / off-planet influence doing the minimum to stop the machine without giving an impression of outside involvement???
No matter what, I doubt the authorities would ever admit the last of these... (can you imagine... LOL)
...and question whether they would want to admit the second of these - because it would strengthen the hand of those who suggest they do not really know what they are doing and are endangering us all.
...I'll DRINK to that Simon,
Drink to anything right now. But...very good points. I'd BET on either 10 year old PARTS...OR 'Outside Intervention'. Thanks/'S'
