Because, you know, the shuttles are flying and all that. That goo wasn't, you know, found in the ISS.

I guess you could replace the word "shuttle" with "International Space Station" and it would still be a pretty funny headline, geek squad.
 
2005-01-26 12:57:38 PM  
Those poor, poor kittens.
 
2005-01-26 01:06:47 PM  
In space, no-one can hear you fapping.

IamGod2u: and it would still be a pretty funny headline, geek squad.

While you're at it, please note that only one of the astronauts is with NASA, the other is a Russian with the Russian Space Agency. And the goo is on the Russian segment of the ISS.

Also, the Surreal Life is in its 4th season already while we're critiquing and deconstructing the headline.

So
"NASA finds goo in shuttle. "Surreal Life 2 in Space" featuring Ron Jeremy cancelled"
becomes
"NASA, in cooperation with the Russian Space Agency, find goo in the Russian segment of the International Space Agency. "Surreal Life 5 in Space" featuring Ron Jeremy cancelled"

Did I miss anything?

I, for one, welcome our new goo-like overlords.

You could have thrown in some overused Fark cliche, just for good measure, but, nonetheless, I think you covered all the bases.

Only one way to get rid of it

 
2005-01-26 05:24:02 PM  
At least it didn't grow skin.

TheOmni: Did I miss anything?

Yes. The goo wasn't on an agency.
 
2005-01-26 05:24:58 PM  
Did it um.. jam their radar? Ho-ho.. :-/

 
2005-01-26 05:26:47 PM  
Galactic Space Goo? Can only mean one thing

 
2005-01-26 05:27:22 PM  
"What's a matter? You fallen in love with the wall or something? GOO!"

Priceless Billy Madison...
 
2005-01-26 05:27:38 PM  
"They're going to be very good pictures," he said as he photographed the goo.

Okay, who's gonna be first to find that picture and submit it for a Photoshop contest?

Germany's $10 million arm, a 20-inch device featuring two joints, two cameras and a fingerlike pin at the end...

I'm no expert, but that sounds like a good deal to me.

Yes. You missed the 's' in 'finds':

GIS for space goo:

wouldn't mind finding goo in her.



/yeah that sounded bad

Those EXTREMELY IMPORTANT AND COSTLY zero-G tadpole fart experiments must be gumming up the ventilation system.

Explains why the space station smells like a boy's dorm room.

"Sharipov found a large patch of dark, oily residue on at least one vent and a white substance he described it as a honeycomb on the oxygen generator's outlet.

During the spacewalk, flight controllers noticed a repeat of the same mysterious forces that tilted the station on previous astronaut outings. Wednesday's odd, off-center nudges forced the Russian thrusters to temporarily take over steering control from the U.S. gyroscopes several times."

Man, I've seen this movie a hundred times. The goo eats the black guy, announces it's intention to take over the world, then the spunky hot chick and the white guy escape in the cargo ship as the station explodes like it was built out of magnesium and jetfuel-soaked dry timber. Hollywood is out of ideas.

Harmless space goo, huh? I've seen enough sci-fi/horror films to know where this is heading.

/Off to the bunker

Cooped up in a tiny room with no women for 3-1/2 months?

I'm surprised astronauts don't return with "Space Station Bob and Weave Syndrome" from ducking all those nasty white spheres.

/grateful for Kleenex and gravity.
 
2005-01-26 05:40:30 PM  
honeycombs! oh yeah!

And they were so close...

NASA won't disclose which of the astronauts have porn buddies.
 
2005-01-26 05:59:09 PM  
Man,talk about your dream job...I'd love to be the first janitor in space. Munching pot brownies for lunch(no smoking,of course)on the ISS,and cleaning up messes.

Procedural Texture

Best reference ever. Space Quest is the best. Is that from 4 or 5? I know it says 7 on the screenshots but its in a weird part of the storyline where you go forward in time, I'm thinking it was SQ4.

Anyway, nice!

Repeating my comments from a previous thread:

Watch out for zombies!!
 
2005-01-26 06:37:55 PM  
Goo happens.
 
2005-01-26 06:56:24 PM  
NASA officials are on the lookout for this creature...

 
2005-01-26 07:02:05 PM  
Goo?
Sounds like too much space wanking to me...
 
2005-01-26 07:03:04 PM  
Let me reiterate the call for submitters to read the articles before placing a headline that makes no sense, isn't funny and has nothing to do with said article.

Here was my submission for the same story:

"Astronauts at space station perform spacewalk and find goo. The Green Slime unavailable for comment"

I am not knocking the admins/mods at all. It's these headlines that are completely off the mark that's my Fark pet peeve. Not to say I haven't done it in early days and I have learned from my mistakes. Just, jeez, rtfa.

Actually, XII is twelve, not seven.

I'd sure like to know more about this so called goo. Every article that mentions it in the headline simply skirts around the sbject in the first two paragraphs and goes on to talk about the astronaut humming to himself. Please, get more details (pic) .. analysis .. then write the article touting the 'goo'...
