Don't worry, we'll send them at night.

The Incredible Sexual Egg: Why Bruce Willis?


You're right, Michael Bay would have been a better choice.

Be sure to mount a mini-gun on the nose of your rover because you will REALLY need that when you're diving around on a comet.

They're the guys that think this shiat up! I'm sure they got a team of men sitting around somewhere right now just thinking shiat up and somebody backing them up!

We should send them to the next closest sun just to be safe.

I tried that in Kerbal and its harder than it seems. I had to shoot myself off Jool and Kerbin again and it still took an impractical amount of fuel and 1850 days.

How about a volcano?

Volcanoes are rather difficult to fire into orbit

So NASA still exists? I thought it was defunded for being a haven for liberalism and stuff.

Wrong, subby. You have to shoot Captain Amercia, the Scarecrow, and Moria McTaggert into the sun to save the world.

Hey. Imagine if the USA eventually developed the capability to deflect an asteroid on a collision course with Earth.

Then one day it's announced they've found one hurtling towards Earth, and it's going to cause massive regional damage (no worldwide chaos, just a kaboom that destroys a few countries).

And it's projected to hit Iran. Possibly also destroy Iraq, Afghanistan, and the tribal areas of Pakistan.

That would be funny, wouldn't it? "Gee, people who hate us, would you like us to save your countries from destruction?"

Yeah, it's hard work getting rid of 30 km/s so you can plunge into the sun.

Uh, Pakistan has nukes and is supposedly a US ally. So, you know, if treaty doesn't get the US in, maybe the threat of nuclear annihilation would.
