+1, definitely the deserving of the headlines.

NASA is reporting the boosters have burned out!!!!!

What was tumbling aft of the shuttle when the external tank separated?
 
2008-11-14 08:20:42 PM  
That is definitely a candidate for headline of the year.

Subby, OUT YOURSELF!

You just made my Little Red Book!

Another +1 for subby.

Brilliant work! A must read!

Don't give the subby any credit for this. He botched his first try in a totally embarrassing manner, and used google for a savings throw.

Even now he's too embarrassed to show himself.

Sincere golf clap for submitter.

Fark needs a way to track the plus ones and display on profile or something. Like voting, but for +1.

Watched the liftoff from the dock at Merotica's in Port Salerno. Separation looked like Venus shooting out of a torch.

Did anyone else enjoy the realization that some dip shiat did not properly secure the door/shroud on the white room up on the tower?

/Nah it won't break the Shuttle.
//Nah you will hardly feel a thing.
///So which mother farker is going to get canned for almost delaying the lift-off?

It is now a bunch of NASA chat. It was the launch of tonight's Shuttle.

BRILLIANT headline.

Speaking of that song, can anyone tell me who does the cover that's in that new car commercial??

Mao liked them yung...

"As his traditions dictated, Mao kept company with young girls during the crossing of Jiangsu Province. Chairman Mao was a pedophile. According to historian Jeb Barlow, the number of young girls Mao slept with "must have been in the tens of thousands." The parents of these girls were "only happy to assist." "Think about it," Barlow continued, "their daughters were screwing the Chairman." Screwing the Chairman became a status symbol."

Why is Major Tom having a conversation with Ground Control while he's in space? I never understood it.

Maybe it's because he encountered some sort of oddity.

Yeah, I've been looking for one all week. Apparently the band hasn't released a full version yet.

Me too. Such a hypnotic 30 seconds sadly lead to nothing more.

Uh, that commercial just came on tv. I'm guessing they weren't planning on making a full music video of it.

FANO:

Too slow, beat ya.'

Am I the only one who thinks this is a stupid song to use for a car commercial, considering the overall theme and lyrics of the song? Like Carnival Cruises using "Lust for Life" or, more appropriately for this topic, Celebrity Cruises using Bowie's "Fame"?

Why is it analog noise in the video? Haven't they gone digital?


By definition, all broadcasting is analogue. Only the modulation and content can be digitised. Crappy radio reception doesn't know the difference.
