Our best wishes go out to "Fincke and Padalka", we hope you fix your gyroscope or you will fail the mission. We wish you russians the best, go sputnik!!!

wobbly shouldn't that be jiggly?
2004-04-23 01:07:42 AM

It stopped! Put the string! Put the string!
2004-04-23 01:12:33 AM  
For clarification, it's the left breast. The right one isn't as jiggly.
2004-04-23 01:13:00 AM  
I can appreciate the analogy, but Courtney Love's breasts look as hard as a friggin' stone. (NSFW)

Looks like she's smuggling a brick of cocaine in that thing... might not be far from the truth actually.

But THESE on the other hand... (Probably NSFW)

Cloudz641, clarification noted :)

maybe the submitter meant 'Courtney Love's head' which I assume is soft, like that of a baby or perhaps a jellyfish.

Geeeebus mudguts...What the hell are those good for? freak show maybe

[whiny Jerry Seinfeld voice]

and is it 'DJY-ro', or 'YEER-o'?


You order a "DJY-ro", the guy with the knife says "no no no, eeesss "YEER-o" order a "YEER-o", the guy with the knife says "no no no, eeesss 'DJY-ro'? I mean, hey!....

just give me the chicken shawarma already. Who arrrrrre these people?

Couldn't agree more Mylow. Just providing some supporting evidence for my argument, but yeah - check up on that girl in 30 years when the gravity's set in. She'll be dragging those things behind her like a couple of fleshy sleighs...

The only time I want to read about a broken gyroscope is when it causes some asshole on a Segway to fall flat on his face.

Otherwise, a bunch of astronauts on a cosmic Tilt-a-Whirl is boring because nobody's getting hurt, just a little pukish.

The gyroscope in question - essentially a spinning wheel...

Thanks, Einstein. Talk to me like I'm a first grader. I love that.

thankfully, it can be fixed...courtney's breast however...

/got the willies.

Run, George! The Segway's gonna get ya!
2004-04-23 01:45:21 AM  
Major Tom to ground control... Our gyro is having problems, send up some baklava ASAP!

Sweet-o-meter overload!

gettin jiggly wi' it

(na naa na na nananaa)

Encapsulated boobies are by no means "wobbly":

Not save for lunch

Get those poor souls some angular momentum! Stat!

In other news, "Replacement Keyboards for SimuLord" is now a 2 1/2 point favorite over "Arrests for Henry Earl" in Vegas.

Im just waiting until they go outside to fix it and then when they try to come back in the pod bay doors won't open.

What is wrong with the space station? The gyroscope broke a while ago, parts of it are falling off all over the place, and now another gyroscope is broken? What, did NASA let Uzbekistan build the gyroscopes or something?
2004-04-23 03:23:23 AM  
That's American quality for ya.
2004-04-23 03:24:18 AM  
Also, this is what happens when you contract everything out to the lowest bidder.

Isn't a "gyro" essentially a penis-shaped vibrator?

Also known as a dildo, fyi.
2004-04-23 04:22:23 AM  
Nodbody: that is actually the most attractive courtney photo I've seen.

Hope NASA can get straight long enough to get those guys back.
2004-04-23 05:57:49 AM  
Bet it's the stow-away Nigerian astronaut who bumped the gyro. Come on, send your account number and routing so we can unlock the $15 million.

Nah, it's beef and lamb on a pita with tzikiki sauce...
2004-04-23 09:02:48 AM  
Sounds like NASA needs to send them a six-pack of gyros.
2004-04-23 09:42:05 AM  
What concerns me is that the gyro unit is labeled as an "E-35 unit". I think for safety's sake, the computer should be turned off *before* the EVA;-)
2004-04-23 09:51:41 AM  
Slight correction: the CMG is not broken (works absolutely fine--when it has power). What is broken is a circuit that supplies power to the CMG. With that being said, yes, we only have two operating CMGs (minimum needed). It's fun in space station land...

Anybody else notice that this story starts out "CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - " when it should start out "EARTH ORBIT, Space -"? The story is about a gyroscope failing on the ISS, not in somebody's office in area code 321.
2004-04-23 11:19:37 AM  
Gyroscope can be found on this wonderful album:

Broken gyroscope has space station as wobbly as Courtney Love's breast

Nothing could be as wobbly as Courtney Love's tits.
