Maybe they will find Vince Vaughn's body there... or did he not die in that movie... wait, was he even in that Mission to Mars movie? Bo0bies

This must be why Nasa is training all those people....

"Experts" on TechTV are saying that we can be ON Mars within the next 10 years if the budget doesn't get slashed more. Can't wait for the people that think we shouldn't leave Earth start replying. :D

Now we can have AOL on Mars!
2001-10-23 11:22:14 AM  
Mmmm, they said "insertion". Boing.

Fifth ColumnI agree. I can hear them firing up the pseudoscience already.

Is the probe filled with free AOL cds?
2001-10-23 11:31:51 AM  
No! With this powerful AOL software the martians will surely be able conquer the earth! (Hopefully the pop up ads will slow them down).

Here's the plan:

We go to Mars, build a new Mt. Rushmore, with carvings of Drew, Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi, and Walken. Build a multi-purpose stadium for the Hornets, Expos and Marlins, and let 'em all play there. Jack Chick can be mayor, Yoko, McCartney and Jacko are the town council, the official town prank is Anthrax scares, the only job in town is sleeping with your head on a 6 degree angle, and voila - we've covered all of today's important threads.

Forgot. you can follow the Hornets, Expos and Marlins on Webcasts through AOL.

NASA Guy #1: The probe will start its scans at seven PM.
NASA Guy #2: With the remaining two hours, we will...
NASA Guy #1: Two hours?? No, it's 4:00 now
NASA Guy #2: 5 Central.
NASA Guy #1: But our computers are set to....
NASA PR Guy: Aw shiat. Not again.

Centimeters? Inches?
There's no real difference is there?

Familybmx: Let's ask the ladies about THAT one, shall we? :)
2001-10-23 11:50:17 AM  
it's not the size of the wand, it's the...

I guess you're right.
(NASA doesn't care though)

$5 says it a million burning little pieces.
2001-10-23 12:14:18 PM  
Mmmm... 640 newton engine. All of the cake-not-cookie figgy goodnes... *Homer drool*
2001-10-23 01:33:52 PM  
Can we get a dead pool going here?
2001-10-23 02:34:51 PM  
Thanks for reminding me Oompa, I have to go to goofball to check mine. Something tells me I'm still getting blanked.

"Odyssey space probe to arrive at Mars tonight."
And crashes by early tomorrow morning

Space probe to crash into Mars, doo-dah, doo-dah.
2001-10-23 05:36:21 PM  
maybe they will miscalculate and find uranus
2001-10-23 05:43:23 PM  
Actually, the Russians and French are the ones who lost rockets due to computer code errors. The Russians lost their Mars '96 lander, and the French lost the first Ariane V rocket.

Preliminary signals from extreme range were as follows:
"Daisy....Daisy.....Give me your answer due.....I'm half-crazy....all for the love of you...."
2001-10-23 11:07:24 PM  
and it's successfully in orbit :)
2001-10-23 11:25:45 PM  
Jesus, I hope this one doesn't break too.
2001-10-23 11:40:18 PM
