I swear to god, you can't make this stuff up better if you tried.

SpaceX: We'll land on Mars in 2018 (cough, with NASA's help)


late but....

Late to the party but the main thing is seeing how the capsule does with cosmic and solar radiation. Total protection for astronauts requires FOUR FEET of shielding.

Gaze in awe at Elon Musk’s historic 156-foot erection


Gazing in awe

I just come here for the lewd innuendo in the titles.

Which keys should I press to enable the CockUp feature?


"inexplicable aroma of freshly roasted coffee"

Man you really like to jump to conclusions don't you.

'Snowden risked lives' fearfest story prompts sceptical sneers


Snowden risked lives

"Snowden risked lives" = Snowden complicated my career.

Top 10 SSDs: Price, performance and capacity


OCZ problems

I am happy for the people that weren't hosed by the OCZ debacle but I wasn't one of them. I got burned after only a week, lost all my data and more importantly my time. My Samsung on the other hand has been humming for what 3 years now?

Muslim clerics issue fatwa banning the devout from Mars One 'suicide' mission


You don't say?

"Such a one-way journey poses a real risk to life, and that can never be justified in Islam,"

Oh but throwing acid on little girls trying to go to school, WHILE WEARING A BURKA that's totally ok.

Facebook RIPS away your veil of privacy, declares NO MORE HIDING


I knew it

I always knew they would do something like this which is why the profile with my real name has all false information. The profile I use for communication has a fake name no identifiable information on it.

Google Glass will SELF-DESTRUCT if flogged on eBay


Re: I'm confused...

From the DNA samples that it collects from your skin cross checked with the photos it takes of you in the bathroom cross checked with the android phone that you have that has been gathering data about every single freaking thing you have ever done since you bought your first android phone.


Re: What gives ANY company the right...

Right you are Graham, companies try to skirt around it but their efforts don't withstand legal scrutiny


Re: What gives ANY company the right...

HEY I'VE GOT A GREAT PLAN!!! How about we not buy the damn thing to begin with?

Mm, Silverlight, what's that smell? Yes, it's death


Bitter Silverlight Dev

FFS can these people pull their heads out of their rears long enough to make up their minds and give people like me(Devs) the chance to make them money?

Do these morons have any idea how long it takes to master a platform sufficiently so that *I* can make money with it? No... talk-out-your-ass mastery doesn't take long at all but REAL mastery that can be used to deliver a product in a way that makes a developer money DOES take time. And after I make that money I want the platform to last long enough so I can justify the investment.

Apple is just blowing Microsoft away in the key area that MS dominated for so long...developer tools and platforms.

Obama 'deep space' Mars plans in Boeing booster bitchslap


It's all a bullshit Lazarus act part 2

"It's all a bullshit Lazarus act " Exactly. I don't have any ties to Boeing and neither does anyone I know so its not about that. I do have a lot of friends and relatives that work here in Florida and in California in the space industry.

This doesn't have anything to do with Big corporation Boeing versus little guys. This is about an entire population of people working for the better part of a decade to make something happen and then have this useless piece of garbage come in and trash it because "He doesn't want Republicans to get credit for something". What a petty @$$hole. Meanwhile what about the decade of effort we just put out? No doubt when Republicans come back they are going to trash what $hit-for-brains did, and to be honest I hope they do.

This is why America can't accomplish anything in space: A space program takes long term commitment and Republicans and Democrats don't want to give each other credit for anything, so they keep bashing NASA back and forth like a pinball.
