Whiskey Dickens: Why does the background of the shot look like sky?


I hear the ISS is orbiting some obscure planet. Could be that planet's atmosphere.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Pinner: moos: stupid rednecks, always shooting stuff.

Drove home from camping in the San Rafael Swell (UT) this weekend. Every sign had bullet holes in it on the county roads. Every one.

That's one of the most expensive things about putting up power and telecommunications boxes in the wilderness, the rednecks tend to shoot the shiat out of them.


Florida Power used to request a police escort to go into St. Pete housing projects.

I'm not sure what my point is, other than too many people have guns.

Erix: I Ate Shergar: Erix: I Ate Shergar: Relatively Obscure: I like that he clarified that the stone was from the universe.

Well, you know how it is in space. There's always stuff coming through from other universes, and it's nearly all dangerous.
(Unless Star Trek, Babylon 5, Red Dwarf, Andromeda, Doctor Who, and probably every other sci-fi show ever - with the possible exception of Firefly - has lied to me. But that couldn't happen, right?)

Pretty sure Babylon 5 didn't deal with other universes.

Only once.

Ivo Shandor: Erix: Pretty sure Babylon 5 didn't deal with other universes.

Babylon 5: Thirdspace

My apologies.  On the advice of a friend I never watched the movies other than In The Beginning.


You didn't miss a lot, to be honest.

Carousel Beast: Meh. You forgot "nothing useful ever came out of space exploration!"


Sorry to disappoint, trolling is hard work.

So you space nutters are going to bring a strain of Space AIDS back from the Moon and that will be the first useful thing to come from space exploration!!! So please don't fark the space monkeys you nutters!

I will live forever in my underground lair. I hate space so much I cannot look at the sky because it is made out of space and I hate space because it is so big!

Star Trek was not a documentary you space geek losers!

\I feel stupid and dirty now.

That's my excuse for not remembering it. Saw it once.

TheOtherMisterP: Really? We link to tweets now? At least find an article with SOME supporting information in it:

http://www.universetoday.com/101837/warning-shot-a-bullet-hole-on-th e- iss/


In this case, the tweet is from Commander Hadfield, who is on the International Space Station. Straight from the horse's mouth, as it were. There aren't any media bureaus or reporters on board the ISS as far as I recall.

Any article is just someone on Earth adding their own commentary.

If the theory of infinite parallel universes is true, then everything, even fictional stuff, must exist somewhere.

Seriously, wouldn't it be something to have a inter-dimensional rip in our solar system and watch as the UFP Enterprise, a Corellian Cruiser, a Wraith Hiveship, a Goa'uld Ha'tak, a Tau'ri F-304,and the Battlestar Galactica duked it out between Mars and the Asteroid Belt?

Yes, you're right, they did forget to photoshop the sky out of the picture and replace it with stars. Too bad the space fundies will claim it doesn't matter and space still exists despite all the evidence to the contrary.

LOL, with the 6-million Dollar Man, you just have to get to the realization that the first time he lifted something really heavy with his bionic arm and bionic legs, his non-bionic spine would have detonated like a bomb and the science is right out the window.
