The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Half a century ago, the entirety of ARPANET, predecessor of the internet, was just 45 computers connected to 40 nodes.

The logical map above shows the state of the internet in Sept. 1973. It was charted by Advanced Research Projects Agency (since renamed the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) for the ARPAnet Completion Report (PDF), published in Jan. 1978.

The FDA is very picky about what can be cheese officially so called.

What is colloquially "American cheese" is pasteurized prepared cheese product.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Processed ... d_States_2
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration does not maintain a standard of identity for "pasteurized prepared cheese product", a designation which particularly appears on many Kraft products. Nor does the FDA maintain a standard of identity for "pasteurized process cheese product" (emphasis on the trailing "Product"), a designation which appears particularly on many American store- and generic-branded singles.

To be fair, it does contain some cheese. 8)

What I gathered from a French cheese promotion site is that the FDA is wary of anything made from raw milk, and that there are apparently (unspecified) pressure groups who want it banned completely.
Also that roquefort is taxed at 300%, which they consider protectionism.

Yet here you can buy any cheese and have it delivered by FedEx to Murica within 24 h.

The US dairy industry fears liability for anything concerning non-pasteurized milk.

You can buy commercially packaged fresh raw milk in some places, but not through the big distributors who deal with supermarket chains.
