The topic of masturbation making you dumber was already explained, sparky.
Do you have kids? I have one, he's asleep. My house is small, so I can't really make noise when he's sleeping. That's why I waste time on here. You?

Sounds you're looking for a date, freakyfrancis, in which case I'm definitely NOT your buoy. Try michellejr. He'd be right up your alley. No pun intended.
aka american exceptionalism.
I heard yesterday, the company that built the rocket used 50 year old refurbished Russian rockets. What a surprise it blew up. I bet they got a cost plus clause like Halburton did in Iraq. When they lost a truck, they'd get the COST of the vehicle PLUS whatever revenue it would have made. That's why the trucks were destroyed when they ran out of gas or had a flat.
to my knowledge the cyclist has not downed 2 (2!) commercial airliners full of innocents.
I wouldn't be so sure of that baddy. I'm sure Pooty Poot wouldn't ride a girls bike.
ya got me there...
Some of the stages may be refurbs, but the rocket is newly built. The technology is 50+ years old, like the design. However, muricans don't want to fund new propulsion research for NASA, or even NASA in general. Chemical rockets have been, and always will be, a dangerous way to leave the atmosphere. It is the only way to do it right now. As Micah said, NASA has done a lot to increase our understanding of the world and the universe. The space program has provided multiple inventions to better our everyday lives. When the environment changes, living creatures have the option to adapt, migrate, or die. We stopped adapting, for the most part. Migration or death is all the human race has to look forward to. With the space program being such a small portion of the budget, death seem to be the most likely outcome for us.
For the people *****ing about cost involved, this was partially insured and most of the loss will go on the company. If you really want to complain about monetary waste, start with the biggest spenders (US Military).
So who is really at fault here, Halliburton for getting the deal or the government for giving it?
To be fair, NASA isn't exactly a poster child for frugality either
I have a son in Special Forces doing his third tour of Afghanistan. I asked him about destroying disabled vehicles and leaving behind $200K Humvees, and he said it was cheaper than repairing them on the spot ( in money and lives) or shipping them back. If you left them, eventually the baddys would take them and fix them... plus do you want to hang around in enemy territory, exposed, changing a tire or waiting for a fuel truck?
Anyone consider the environmental impact in the ocean right off of Wallops Island. I'm sure there are a lot of unhappy fish right now...
so you're saying I NEED NOT pay $6K for my next toilet seat?
NASA Wallops gave a quick briefing yesterday about the environmental impact and plan yesterday. I am sure it will take a while to realize the full environmental damage.
Excellent point CB. I hate chaning a tire on a busy road let alone in a damn war zone!
Yeah you know those fish were just swiming along like "oh boy what a great day" then BOOM, fish pee everywhere!
Exactly why they started outsourcing aspects like the Antares project: Congress viewed NASA as a black hole of unfettered spending of taxpayer money, so, to pimp votes they decided to shred NASA's budget.
Nor is any government organization. However, they are blowing a few mil here and there while the military blows billions.
