Kay, I have to be quick with my summary.

A: Who cares? This is a waste of tax money! We should buy more guns!
B: ...feed the hungry!
C: ...clothe the poor!
D: ...give me my taxes back!
E: This is a scientific benefit that helps mankind! Look at kool-aid!
F: ... Gravity pens!
G: ... Computers!
H: ...teledildonics!
I: And finally, "IT NEVER HAPPENED!"

Kay I think that's everything.

PC LOAD LETTER, do you post on a BF2 board? I've seen your nick there over the last couple of days and was wondering if it was the farker of the same name.

Well now, that's a wonderful way to construct a sentence...

"now NASA are going back to prove it"

good job. Let's check that grammar by expanding on the acronym:
"now the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are going back to prove it"

Sounds real smart now, doesnt it? Sure, that 'the' is implied, but then again, so is some knowledge of the English language.

Commissar Cat,

Okay, but why do they wanna do that in the first place? What benefit to mankind is there, aside from people going "Oh, pictures of a dusty rock."....?


1. can you say 'base of operations' for future space missions?
2. Can you say 'overpopulation'?

Those are the two reasons I see.

If they think that this will convince moon-landing conspirists, NASA doesn't understand their depth of lunacy.

They had one of those in Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars series. In Red Mars, it came crashing down and wrapped around the planet twice, in Green Mars it was rebuilt and the Martian Nationalists were unable to secure at the time of Maritan Independance.

He who controls the Moon controls life.

Nothing to see up there but a space desert. What a waste of moola. I'd rather see undersea ocean colony research.
 
2005-07-18 09:34:54 AM  
moltov: The moon won't directly be used as a population runoff. That would be dumb and pointless. But it could be good as a science station. The point of the flight is completely different, they just happen to be flying over the old landing spots and thought they'd take some picks while doing it.

I'm not really sure if I'm a die-hard conspiracy theorist, but I have to ask the question:

Couldn't they just Photoshop the rover into the picture? We at Fark know the Powers of the 'Shop.

More conspiracies... Most of us won't believe it till they take us up there personally.

Go anywhere and say 'the NASA...' and people will look at you like a retard. That's how I see you.

IF you wanted to say the entire name, then yes you would say 'The National Aero...' but submitter chose to use the acronym.

If you want to be a grammar nazi, correct the submitter on his usage of plural present perfect verb 'are going,' when properly it would have been 'NASA is going. They depend on what they are modifying. 'Are' is for plurals, but there is only one NASA, therefore, 'NASA is' not 'NASA are.'

For all those who are interested,
"PC LOAD LETTER" was a message on Early HP Laserjet printers, indicating that the user should load a "letter" format paper cassette into the 'P'rimary 'C'assette.
This was seem in the UK with frightning regularity because we use A4 for most printing and the most microsoft software (and the HP printer drivers) assumed "Letter" by default.
 
2005-07-18 09:37:33 AM  
Apparently, NASA can stage an entire moonlanding with 60's technonlogy, but is somehow incapable of shopping a landingsite in 2005.

We have to get to the moon before the Chinese do 45 years after we got there the first time!
 
2005-07-18 09:42:22 AM  
moltov: Not dumb like, "you're dumb", just dumb because population pressure, if it ever gets so high as to require us to make a livable colony on the Moon (with all the supply trains that go along with it) that it would be a waste of time. The Moon would fill up faster than we could populate it.

Pop. pressure is better dealt with here instead. It's the doubling bacteria problem you probably heard about in high school.
