even when he was wrong!
is to learn something about the subject before you start.
It works in other areas too.
Chris Foss as mentioned above. Great artist though his genius paradoxically wasn't really in the spaceship design
(if not the best ) designs by Brian Johnson who was also responsible for the Nostromo and the Millennium Falcon. (I think those may have been mentioned.)
Who the hell's writing the universe these days?
The guy was wearing a white coat so it's all legit.
Deserves to enter the language.
But, hey, penis works too.
The two things wrong with the modern world.*

For as long as I can remember the joke has been that fusion has been 30 years away for the last fifty years but just lately it seems the 30 has changed to 20. Does someone know something I don't?
that Michael Bay couldn't solve.
Ada deserves that.
Oh, wait. . .
There is no study of "how men are using technology today" - even the not very bright marketing types can see the pointlessness of that.
you're using too much lube.
aren't actually floating that shouldn't be a problem provide the display is kept minimal. On the other hand the lack of microsaccades might be (depending on what they actually do).
Phobos-Grunt's just a distraction to keep the Martians occupied while Curiosity slips out the back way.
Did you read the article? Unlike you the judge can tell the difference between swearing and abuse.
another lens mount.
Six phallic symbols, a Canberra and a Meteor.
I find that hard to believe.
everything was wood veneer - why should processors be any different.
a lot of them are Catholics but I don't think "kill them all, God will recognise his own" is quite appropriate for Mexican military or police.
Now funner to be with!

The idea is to cause detumescence not heart failure.
I'll wait for the mimic octopus version - it does colour and has a better refresh rate
In a prograde direction.
The atmosphere is "slowing it down" (or rather exerting drag) which is causing it to move into a new, lower, but faster, orbit. So it's both "slowing down" and "speeding up". The thing is the English language isn't exactly adapted to describing orbital mechanics.
they don't actually "ride" teenagers - just lasso 'em.
they don't actually "ride" teenagers - just lassoo 'em.
Every one know that the Nazis fled the Earth in anti-gravity powered flying saucers not rocketships.
Doesn't anyone car about factual reporting anymore!
otherwise you have to do orbital insertion which is an even more "massive waste of weight".
of the US military at their disposal and they still use a string for test-firings, Mythbusters style.
Having read "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex" I think I'll pass on that thanks.

for <some> value of style.
in the sense that we're several generations removed from the Victorian era and have realised that we can openly acknowledge that we are sexual beings and even (gasp) discuss our sexuality with others.
I miss Sarah.

They just can't get the eyes to glow the appropriate evil shade of red.
Code for "realising you don't have to have your clitoris chopped off" (among other things).
But, as a Queenslander, welcome to the state. I hope you see some of it that isn't the Gold Coast. Cavill Avenue on any given night isn't exactly representative <shudder>.
I think el Reg might be on to something there.
get another well-paid job.
You can never be sure who came first.
He just kicks the Earth into the future.
The post is required, and must contain letters.
That sort of horror story only works on an audience which is ignorant on the subject which we here are not.
BTW, you do know that the stories at Not Always Right are ,shall we say, not always true.
about the hideous image you've just inserted into my head?
if I wore just one rubber glove?
