Anyone else think that rocket looked kinda...kinky?
2002-03-22 01:01:23 AM  
cause they knew there was nothing up there?

am i right?
2002-03-22 01:01:45 AM  
Because we're better.
2002-03-22 01:02:40 AM  
dang, its just cause the russians suck at building rockets...
2002-03-22 01:02:41 AM  
Cuz they shiat broke.
2002-03-22 01:03:00 AM  
They knew it would be more fun to go to Belgium.

Actually, the Russians are quite good at building rockets. That particular rocket, however...I won't say it sucked balls, because in many ways it didn't. It was just too ambitious. As it was, if it weren't for the Apollo 1 fire, we might have been in the same boat.

Our german rocket scientists can beat up your german rocket
2002-03-22 01:05:39 AM  
Because if they had, would they have made it into the pages of

Because they were too busy screwing up Eastern Europe.
2002-03-22 01:05:56 AM  
Because they spent too much time on the ground submitting Cosmiverse links to Fark.

[insert witty cosmicverse taking over fark reference here]
2002-03-22 01:06:12 AM  
Wait. Yes, they probably would have.
2002-03-22 01:06:17 AM  
Is Cosmiverse giving Fark free bj's?
2002-03-22 01:07:05 AM  
Rancid, cut and paste mine.
2002-03-22 01:08:40 AM  
just read rancidplasma's...

Supar Sekret Russian ROCKET CAR!!!^##^#
2002-03-22 01:09:38 AM  
It's so secret I can't even link to it.
2002-03-22 01:09:41 AM  
How phallic
2002-03-22 01:10:56 AM  
The truth is the Russians had no real desire to go to the moon because they had already been there. Few people know it but Joseph Stalin was a Communist Alien From The Moon!

C'mon people! Look at the facts. It all adds up!

Cosmiverse has a better article asking if I want to participate in a hypergravity study.

"The increased force will tend to pull blood from your head and cause it to pool in your gut and your lower will overcome the ability of your heart to pump blood to your head, and you will temporarily lose peripheral vision as your visual field begins to dim. The level of G at which this occurs will define your tolerance limit."

During the daylong sessions, participants will conduct normal routines, such as eating, excreting, sleeping, reading and watching TV. Closed-circuit video cameras will monitor all activities.

I'm there.

Okay, I still can't believe there hasn't been a link to Duke bitting it. WTF. DUKE SUCKS.
2002-03-22 01:12:45 AM  
Cosmiverse wants Uranus.
2002-03-22 01:13:44 AM  
Ok, so maybe this is a little off topic, but what's up with all these cosmiverse posts lately? I mean, it's almost like fark is just becoming an extension of thier front page. Do we really need an update every time they post a new article??
2002-03-22 01:13:45 AM  
Ghastly, i saw you on the Exploitation Now message boards like 2 nights ago, your comics pretty funny dude :)

I bet the Commies could shoot free throws.
2002-03-22 01:13:57 AM  
Hell I already do all that in regular gravity. Doing it in hyper gravity will just make my life an extreme sport. Sign me up Skippy!
2002-03-22 01:14:48 AM  
all your fark posts belong to cosmiverse
2002-03-22 01:15:11 AM  
pardon me while I go take a hypergravity crap. you scientists can watch me on TV.
2002-03-22 01:15:29 AM  
Thanks Mask.
2002-03-22 01:19:20 AM  

IIRC, Stalin's the one which had his brain cutted out in thin layers (probably to study alien anatomy?)
2002-03-22 01:19:55 AM  
Hoosier: I'm pretty new to this site, what the hell does "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" mean? I thought it was exclusively a fark thing until I saw it in a Foxtrot comic strip.
2002-03-22 01:27:27 AM  
NASAM: Watch this. Then go here. All will be explained.

Actually, probably not, but, hey, what the hell...
2002-03-22 01:33:11 AM  
Victoly: Holy Crap that was long. Thanks, that clears it up, I think.

All your cosmiverse are belong to us?
2002-03-22 01:40:45 AM  
Hey, Ghastly, didn't know you were a Farker... Small world.

Good luck in the rankings.
2002-03-22 01:41:52 AM  
Yeah right, the "moon". Everyone knows the moon is an elaborate hoax perpetrated on the public by the CIA.

So how, I ask, could the Russians go there?
2002-03-22 01:42:13 AM  
Geez Ghastly, you're just popular tonight.
2002-03-22 01:49:04 AM  
Ain't he?
2002-03-22 01:50:36 AM  
BTW, the real reason the Soviets never went to the Moon is beacuse the N-1 exploded all 4 times it was test launched.
2002-03-22 01:52:10 AM  
You Americans afre still so happy there's one thing you beat the Russians to in space, aren't you?

I mean, they beat yu to all the rest... first satellite, first "manned" spaceflight, first man in space, first woman in space, first spacewalk, first fully operational space station (and it didn't even drop on Australia!)

But you guys played golf on the moon!

Too bad...

And on the N-1 rocket program:

And on their Lunar lander projects:
