I think a cursory examination of the terrain 43 miles east of Flagstaff AZ might change his mind!!
Have you ever been there? I recommend it. It looks even bigger when you're standing at the rim.

Yes I have, back in 1987.

In the respect you mention, its like the Grand Canyon; you know it big because you can see it looks big in pictures and on TV.
But when you're actually standing there looking down or across to the other side.... wow, just wow!!

Yep, me too.  Either that or one of ka9q's sock puppets - it varies day-to day.

Maybe we ought to stop commenting on his posts during the current idiocy, just to feed his delusion....

What? And give up the bonus payments from NASA?

97% of NASA employees are on furlough.  I doubt they have the budget for bonus payments right now.

It looks like the last time I've done a diff/saved a copy was in April. Does anyone want me to do a new one? The page has probably accumulated a lot of changes.

He's trying to use the Tsiolkovski formula...

Didm't he say that equation had nothing to do with it?!  :P

Yeah, but don't worry, he's linked to this thread so anyone can find out how he dismissed as irrelevant the equation he is now trying to use... :D

They've shut down our open bar policy here.  But the bar owner is keeping a tab open for the regulars in the hope he will keep our business and maybe even get back pay.  The restrictions have put  a crimp on recruiting though.  Who would want to work so hard to keep this hidden for just money.

I tried to send them my new address, but they didn't believe me...
"Cheer up!" they said. "It could be worse!" they said.
So I did.
And it was.

With the Congress sort of sorting things out, the disinfo happy hour is officially back on tonight.  But silly me promised my daughters I'd take them to see Aida at the opera.  So it looks like I'll be sober and have to explain away Radamès part in the Nubian conspiracy instead.  Vigilance, always vigilance.
