They would read, "Shuttle asplodes" and mutter something about my dog.

The space shuttle Discovery dodged clouds to make a textbook touchdown

Can't it just fly through clouds? No wonder people expect these things to blow if it can't even make it through a few puny clouds.

Commander Lindsey gets out, immediately pees on the landing gear.

You win again, NASA!

It only took 7 months of crass jokes and dark humor to finally drive you away from this site?

I want to know if they have a big knob on the steering wheel so they can steer it with one hand when they taxi it back to the hangar.

What, no img.fark.com trifecta?

hey what just happened to that post on the guy who was held in contempt for yelling after he was found not guilty? I had a nice funny line ... lined up...

The space truck didnt break down on the way home? Good, now load it up again and build some L5 colonies already.

I'm happy for the astronauts and their families that they're not all dead.

All-time funniest space joke is still the Challenger-era, "What does NASA stand for?"

/wanted to be an astronaut
//was disappointed to find out they have to be "smart" and "in shape"
 
2006-07-17 09:54:55 AM
... and there was much rejoicing.
 
2006-07-17 09:55:28 AM
Really damn glad this flight succeeded!
 
2006-07-17 09:55:59 AM
TheYellowDart88 You people disgust me.

Then you should consider altering your little browser bookmark to point to something more your style - and not just complain about it in threads. Perhaps one of the fine programs from Fox News like Bill Oreily would more closely align with your worldly views?

Me too! I was hoping for more of a "explosion delayed" headline.

Haha, cute headline.

Where's the Kaboom? There's supposed to be an shuttle shattering Kaboom.

Wow, 2 have blown up and the other 3 haven't.
 
2006-07-17 09:57:09 AM
Wow, that one's in bad taste... but you don't come to Fark for the funny headlines. Good one submitter!
 
2006-07-17 09:57:15 AM
But shuttle asploding jokes are my fave.:*(
 
2006-07-17 09:57:46 AM
"And I would have succeeded in blowing it to bits too, if it wasn't for you pesky kids!"

"& i was hoping the mission would end with a bang"

Technically it did. Well, more of a boom really.
 
2006-07-17 09:58:19 AM
Do you think a simple thing like the Shuttle landing safely will stop me from my preemptive link submission?


/Suffer TFers suffer!
 
2006-07-17 09:59:13 AM
i don't get it. doesn't someone high up (in NASA) think there's something wrong when you spend the whole mission time worrying whether or not the thing is gonna be able to return safely to Earth? i don't even know what they were doing up there. seems all i heard on the news was that they were constantly checking to make certain a piece of foam didn't break off and seal their fate.

Discovery to Fark: Fark, Can you confirm a suck it?
Fark to Discovery: Confirmed, Fark now sucking it.

Hats off to NASA and STS 121

/kidding, glad they're back

Back?? NASA isn't back until they do something new, instead of their current track of doing what they've done several times before just to prove that they can. In the scientific world, NASA is sort of like the single, middle-aged guy picking up young women to show that he's still got it.
 
2006-07-17 10:01:06 AM
I honestly can't understand why seemingly everyone wants NASA to fail so badly. It's bad enough nobody gives a crap about space or aviation in general, but why are people disappointed when people don't die?

They do that every mission. Sometimes not as well. You just hear about it more now b/c of the media needing a story.
 
2006-07-17 10:01:27 AM
Curses, now we have nothing new to blame the skyrocketing gas prices on. foiled again.
 
2006-07-17 10:02:17 AM
Good to hear they arrived safely.
 
2006-07-17 10:02:21 AM
Im glad they made it. They need to quit and end on a high note.

They were farking in space. Imagine how far you can shoot your load when there's very little gravity.

/All the way across the room, man
//why do you think they started sending women on shuttle missions?
 
2006-07-17 10:02:28 AM
So when the astronauts are back in Houston, I wonder how many times a day they mention they were back from the space station?

"... so, the Dr. Pepper is $1.39 and the M&Ms bring the total to... that's $2.98."

"Okay, here's a twenty -- say, do you know I was on the SPACE STATION on Saturday?"

"That's great sir. Do you have anything smaller? I'm short on ones right now."

The current purpose of shuttle missions is to determine their "blow up" rate. I say we sell NASA on e-bay and pay down the governments debt.

"seems all i heard on the news was that they were constantly checking to make certain a piece of foam didn't break off and seal their fate."

Not too surprising considering that was mostly the point of the mission

Those rovers on Mars are still working pretty well. And they are an amazing accomplishment.

August11: Yes, it's a real pity we're going to have to shut them off so we can use more of NASA's budget to do important things like line the pockets of congresscritters and kill more brown people for Jesus.

Probably a repeat. I thought I saw that story on Fark over the weekend.
