Comment

"Cameron has been watching the Sphinx closely, and determined that it will melt and sublimate entirely by September 20. This, according to the Financial Times, will be likely the first time in more than ten years, and likely the sixth time in three centuries, that all of Great Britain will be without snow. When the Sphinx does go, however, Cameron hopes to be there, with his tent and his cell phone. “It may go at 3 am on a wet Wednesday night but this has never been chronicled before,” he told the newspaper. “So to be there would be amazing.”"
