From TFA: "The exact cause of the crash is still under investigation."

Translation: There was some kind of James Bond movie shiat going on over there but this is just the 'scrubbed' version for the media. Someone almost got him!

/No, I don't really believe it
//But I'd watch that movie (if it had a better ending)

I giggled, Subby.

/I really did

An "emergency landing", especially when it's happening to you, is a farking crash.
 
2008-07-20 03:35:13 AM  
how is this scary?
 
2008-07-20 03:37:07 AM  
Still - pretty amazing nobody was seriously injured.

Looks like a pretty bad crash.

I can imagine Rev. Moon being a James Bond bad guy.

I'll see your +1 Internets, and raise you an Interweb.

/Subby pulled me in and delivered me to TFA post haste.
//It sounds like the Moon didn't have much momentum.
///The other moon is still in place, whew.. thankfully.
////Good night.

That, subby, was a tasteless, horrifying cheap shot of a headline used to get an easy greenlight.

Good job, you magnificent bastard.

I'm skeptical about that photo.

Anything landing hard enough to carve a crater that deep should leave everyone involved a few inches shorter.

I'm not saying the crash didn't happen, but I doubt the connection between that photo and this story.

They're Koreans. They're already a few inches shorter.

It's like they've been pre-disastered.

If that is the wreckage the pilot must have done a hell of a job with the rest of the chopper, especially if "no one was seriously hurt"

Interesting how some of those that most would consider "out there" seem to live charmed lives

I heard you could shoot the moon out of the sky in "Terminator: Future Shock."

Guess I'll get out DOSBox and give it a try.

mootmah: I may just be too young to remember. What's the deal with this guy? Why does everyone here hate him?

holy shiat, doesn't anybody tell the younguns about history? Oh, yeah, if it isn't about bashing the evils of capitalism or the joys of tree hugging, it doesn't get taught in school.

Ever hear of the Unification Church? Did you go to college (assuming you graduated from high school)? Does the phrase moonies mean ANYTHING at all? fark a duck, how can we allow the youth of this country to be so farking ignorant?

The Unification Church is a massive cult, one of the earliest to manifest itself in the turbulent cultural upheaval that fomented in the '60s. They may not necessarily predate L Ron Hubbard's sci-fi writings that created Scientology, but they got big way before the Scientologists did. They plagued (and still do) college campuses around the country (and indeed, the world), looking to prey upon the disillusioned, the lonely, the confused, the weak-willed (in other words, the less socially developed freshmen aka fresh meat) and suck them into their world. They come across as a christian group at first, the old "hey, come to our house this Friday night and read the bible with us".

I almost got sucked into their insidious snare, I was approached by one of them in the campus library during a time of emotional duress (girl problems/exams not going well). Did this whole clever 'the bridge' presentation. I actually went to the house that friday night, saw what it was. When it came time to talk about your favorite music (the answers the other gave were comical in their sappiness), I started off with Black Sabbath, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Grand Funk Railroad. The look of horror on their faces was priceless.

I got up and said "you guys are a bunch of sissies, I'm going to go and get some beer. have fun. bye". You would have thought I thrown a hand grenade into the room. I think at least half the room bolted when I made my move.

Cults like these prey upon peoples' desire to not look impolite. "Oh, they were so nice and clean, it would be mean of me to say 'no' to them". I've lost friends to cults like this. I know people who've lost their significant others to cults. Rev. Moon is a farking devil, and he's richer than fark and people still kiss his hoary evil ass. It makes me farking sick. My own dad, god rest his soul, used to read the Washington Times, which is owned by Moon.

I would ask him "how can you support this evil man?" His reply was "Well, at least he isn't a liberal". No, he wasn't a liberal, he was worse. Much worse.

mootmah: "I may just be too young to remember. What's the deal with this guy? Why does everyone here hate him?"

He's been called "the L. Ron Hubbard of the East". His "moonie" cult exists more or less to elevate him to the status of a godhead and provide for his luxurious lifestyle. Do some research, this guy is bad news and he's insanely powerful. The Unification Church makes the Church of Scientology look like a roadside lemonade stand.

The guys name is Rev. Sun Moon. Quick, somebody come up with a cliche about life and death and the orbital cycle of the earth!

Since the Majora's Mask reference was already taken...

So, I guess the number of humans on the surface has reached Danger Level 2, and the Moon/Human Annihilation System will drop in three weeks.

Hartdegen: How did this happen?
Soldier #1: The moon. Come on, move it.
Hartdegen: That's impossible. What happened?
Soldier #1: What, you been living under a rock?
Hartdegen: Yes, I've been living under a rock! Now tell me...
Soldier #1: The demolitions for the lunar colony screwed up the orbit, okay? The moon's breaking up, all right? Now, come on.

I'm not faulting your history, but your use of "foment" in the passive voice is disturbing.
