  • DC Area Space Shuttle Porn

    If you are in the DC area, the Discovery shuttle is flying in today (towed by a 747) for permanent display at Udvar Hazi. It is supposed to circle at a very low attitude for about one hour around 10-11.

    Don't either bother driving around Herndon right now, it's a parking lot.

    Edit: it just did a flyover over Fairfax Cty. Absolutely amazing -- could not have been more than about 1000 feet.

        I gathered as much from the 5 billion pictures people are posting on Facebook. You guys think you're so cool because this is happening while you live there well in my days we had ...um... the Lorenna Bobbitt trial. So yeah, take that.

          I should have been looking up while bike riding today. Between 10 and 11, I was heading east on the W&OD through Leesburg and probably reached Ashburn before 11.

            The Enterprise finally made it to the deck of the Intrepid yesterday. The NY Post has had some nice pictures in the print edition.

            this link http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/i...jWLJkDqo7XZWGL has a picture and video of them unloading it onto the deck;

            this one has a still photo: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion...udqaDIWaBBFHYM ... kind of boring...

            this one has another still at a better angle: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/s...KYQGbuR5OFVQKM this last link also leads to a link that shows a series of still photos.

                Now I lay me down to sleep,
                I pray my Pen1$ I will keep.
                And if I wake and it is gone,
                I hope I find it on the lawn.
                I hope the dog that is running free
                doesn't see that little part of me.
                Many precautions I must take,
                to keep this part I love to shake.
                Much attentions I must pay,
                to assure I put these knives away.
                The mower, chainsaw the hatchet too.
                Why, there's just no telling what she'll do
                to rid me of my manly charm.
                I must keep it safe away from harm
                so, I cross my fingers, and close my eyes,
                and cross my legs to avoid surprise.

To put it another way, if MNS ever gets any, he'll appreciate the experience on a far deeper level than the rest of us did when it was our first time, simply because he's gone far longer and failed far more than we ever did.

                      Is that an escort jet on the right?

                        Sure is. Had a fighter jet escort of some sort. Funny how much smaller it looks.
