Was there a final, unscheduled shuttle mission?

Quick! This may be our only chance to launch Ben Affleck into orbit!

Well, there are 3 to 4 weeks in the spring and fall when the weather here in the DFW area is pretty farking awesome.

/Well, if you ignore the occasional tornado that lusts after old folks homes and day care centers...

I'll take Texas weather over 6ft of snow.

I prefer places where minimal clothing is the norm.

because if it doesn't exist on Wikipedia, it must not be real, right

even if NASA says differently (new window)

i wonder if the amount of particulates in the sky during the separate seasons affects the visibility of these "fireballs" and that its not their occurrence that changes during the season but our ability to see them

Mystery Fireball in Texas Actually a Jet Contrail, NASA Scientist Says

Fireball? Bah. Nothing new.

Why is this news? Oh wait? You mean you don't have those outside Texas?

An old Texas farmer got ran over by his tractor. So he went over to the gates to talk to the man there.

The Texan said, "Hey Peter, nice place ya got here." The man at the gate looked puzzled, and then said, "I don't think you know where the Hell you are, sir, or who the Hell you're talking to."

I also have another joke that's just for us Texans:

Texas Cities that are not culturally Texas:

Dallas is a suburb of New York City
Austin is a suburb of San Francisco
Houston is a suburb of San Diego
El Paso is a suburb of Cuidad Juarez, Mexico

Nah. But I should not have eaten at Taco Bell before getting on that flight with the layover in DFW.

To tackle the mystery, Cooke and his NASA colleagues have set up a network of "smart meteor cameras" around the United States that they use to triangulate the trajectories of meteors

Ah. And here I thought those damn things were for speeders and red light-runners.

I saw a daytime meteor once. And one at dusk, when I was in a national park, that was huge--it must have lasted for 10 or 15 seconds. Both very cool.

Not so fast.

We have to launch Ashton Kutcher into the sun first.

Oh great, the Liberals made everyone stop sacrificing virgins, and now look what's happened: the sky gods are angry.

I hope you're happy now, Libtards.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just give the two of them a broken cue stick, and tell them there's only room for one of them in space?

It's interesting how the two engine contrails on each side of a 747 nearly always twist around each other.

/Vortices, ftw.

Goodness gracious.

like twisting two threads cause them to wrap around each other, but probably also influenced by the vortices created by the wings more so than by the engines.

They have two kinds of weather in Texas.

Really hot, and Racist

Every season is Fireball season.

The dragons are long dead. That's King Joffrey's Comet.

I think everyone should have to live in Texas for a few years. The same thought line about everyone should wait tables for abit. It's an educational and learning experience. But it's one you know will end and you can move on.
