Cold Venus

Venus Express has just measured some very low temperatures on Venus. -157 degrees.

Nowhere on Earth is that cold. I wonder how the “run-away-greenhouse theory” is going to explain this “unexpected result”. I thought “the science is settled”.

Compiler Error C2431

When you do this inline assembly in MS Visual C

LEA EAX, [EBX+2*EBP]

everything is just fine.

LEA ESP, [EBX+4*EBP]

also compiles well.

LEA ESP, [EBX+ESP]

okay again.

But when you try this

LEA EAX, [EBX+2*ESP]

you get error C2431.

Other compilers also fail to compile it! Like GAS, for example.

I have googled extensively but no valid explanation anywhere. Not a trace of it.

What is going on here?
