Prabal asks,

> What's "C.E."?

  "Common Era," an alternative term for "A.D." (for those who don't feel
like referring, even in another language, to "the year of Our Lord"). So it
seems that we are talking about the year UC 2345 (or its alternate-universe
equivalent) after all... wonder what the continent of Australia looks like
these days? ;-)

  Or a series thereof. How many times can people drop huge objects on the
Earth before it begins to adversely affect the inhabitants' lifestyles?

  Unlikely, since the invasion is formally named the 1st Return Operation.
It seems to be common knowledge among the Moonies that this represents a
return to the mother planet...
