Jules Verne Rains Rerror from the Sky!
This ties in with my frequent maunderings about Jules Verne. The first European Automated Transfer Vehicle, the Jules Verne ATV, docked successfully today with the International Space Station. Captain Nemo was at the helm, with co-pilot Robur, and from the ISS they will show their superiority to the world and rain destruction down upon their warmongering enemies. The Baltimore Gun Club has quickly dispatched a team to ready a massive cannon to fire a projectile into space to knock down the ISS and the dangerous geniuses at its helm, while the rest of the world is advised to find an extinct volcano in Iceland and hide in the tunnels beneath until this whole crisis passes. Failing that, take to a balloon and look for a deserted island.
