Hexagons are ruining Saturn.

I hope they don't accidentally fly the Cassini probe into it, then we'll have to put up with conspiracy theories for the next 30 years.

Heh. Not quite an "Oil Hitting The Anus," but very well done everybody.

Personally I think Cassinni should keep an eye out for Lando Calrissian.

In other news, Uranus is still unremarkable.

I don't wanna talk about it anymore.

Look for the post at 2007-03-27 02:23:11 PM

Wait, so, I'm not exactly clear on this yet--what things are hexagons again?

Hey, where's Eric Hexagon?

I'M FREAKING OUT.
Also the hexagon shops are amusing.

I call dibs on the number 5 and all the Mars faces in that picture.

The Great Emancipator was actually the Great Rapinator

And I'm glad to see some Sundiver & 2001 references in here, BTW :D

This thread should have had voting. An opportunity lost I think.

Welp, that convinced me. I guess there is a god after all.

it's a streetlight!

"This is a very strange feature, lying in a precise geometric fashion with six nearly equally straight sides,"

So.... is it a precise geometric feature or are all the sides nearly equally straight? Cause it can't be both! LOL!
 
2007-03-27 06:52:33 PM  
What the hell is that thing, anyway?
 
2007-03-27 06:53:18 PM  
It's the head of the bolt that holds the rings on.

/would Pshop it, but It's time to go home now
 
2007-03-27 06:53:27 PM  
I for one welcome our new hexagonal...you know the rest.

night_elf: So.... is it a precise geometric feature or are all the sides nearly equally straight? Cause it can't be both! LOL!

Why? I doubt it'd be precisely geometric if the farkin' sides curved...

Old and busted: streetlight (It always felt forced anyway.)

New hotness: "This thing is a hexagon!"
