I'm hoping Elon Musk and SpaceX can keep it up. Depending on the Russians for space access is crazy, as is relying on the Chinese.

Communism defeats capitalism.  East defeats West.  One liberal at a time ;-)

Shut up and eat your fried rice and drink your vodka, comrade.

The USA is over.  No need to invent anything here, other than FEMA camps.

OMG, I am so predictable!  I just read a previous post and laughed to myself about a likely response.

And then scrolled down and saw that exact response.  From myself!

So maybe next time I return, I will think "Ferengi"

Do you mean the hand/finger thing?  I almost do that as a routine greeting just to see how people react.

That's funny.  On my cat blog, I'm TBT (The Big Thing).  What is TBBT to you?

The Big Bang Theory. It's a show I love to hate.

Why?  If I may be so bold to ask?  Is it because Sheldon gave up on String Theory?  The engineer is actually the hero among that group, the one who isn't a Normie or a impractical egg-head.

At the sanatarium or the nursing home?  Hopefully with your pants on.

It's because all those smart people are made to seem really stupid. Solving practical problems isn't their forte. All they have is book-smarts, which doesn't count for much in the real world.

Yes, it is a Normie show.  But the engineer (Howard) actually does things.  He isn't ivory tower.  Sheldon is the most ivory tower .... but he is the star of the show.

I think I like Leonard the best, he doesn't seem so full of himself as do the others.
