Everyone knows about S.A.D.... Seasonal Affective Disorder, frequently associated with extended periods of overcast weather.

Perhaps theres' an astro-specific version of this?

Yeah, that carpy weather smells mighty fishy.

This sounds like a corollary to the new astro equipment jinx. This time it's the astronomer under the weather.

Gosh, i'm surprised the police aren't looking into that.

Did they check thermal equilibrium to establish the time of disrepair?

If Han Solo had been there, he would have split the dead body open, so he would have a place to keep the C14 warm. :shocked:
