stuff that’s hard to do (cont’d)

A Palestinian musician is blaming the U.S. and Israel for the fact that the Palestinians have not yet been able to send a man to the moon. [His] group’s latest album was inspired by the contrast between NASA’s space exploration and the digging of smuggling tunnels between Gaza and Egypt. [more]

Wellp …
based on my 22-year USAF career in national satellite programs and a master’s degree in astronautical guidance and control, reckon I ought’a point out that it’s really, really hard to get to the Moon by diggin’.

    the claims have some good key words to bring attention to his little troglodyte rap band.

    The primitive Paleoswinians, for that matter most of the rest of islam, have no idea how primitive they are. They don’t even know how much they don’t know. “Most retrograde force” Churchill called it, and the Paleoswinians exemplify it.

    “Ohhhh we are so sorry. We put one of our Palestinian brothers in the nosecone of the Scud missile and it ‘malfunctioned’ on the way to the moon and just ‘happened’ to land in Jerusalem. Honest!!”

    When you smoke hashish, everyone can be an astronaut.

    According to my reading of the Quran, there is a worm hole opening somewhere underground on the outskirts of Gaza. The Palestinian will the first people to literally able to step into space.

    DougM, you sound like one of those deniers of minority accomplishments in space exploration like The Negro American Space Society of Astronauts
    The Old Negro Space Program

    They are a jolly happy bunch of contradictions, ain’t they?

    Also, everyone *else* is to blame, no matter the question.

    I unnerstan’ that Space-X corporation is getting ready to test
    their new missile for carrying passengers to the ISS.
    They think it might work but they need to test it with live
    suckers humanoids first, to see if it will lift off & not blow up
    on the pad or during the ascent phase. I’ll got the perfect
    solution to the Paleostinkians prollem of getting into space!

    What if they just dig up rather than down?

    Unpleasant people being sent into space …..

    Has anyone else here read The Marching Morons by Cyril Kornbluth? (I think so.)

    Maybe if they’d lashed all those katyushas together instead of launching them individually…

    Now, that’s the most intelligent thing I’ve heard.
    Hey, y’never know what they’ll dig up next.

    I may have the answer to why Arabs haven’t made it to space.

    Look to left of center in the picture, about 1/3 of the way down. There are two missiles seeming to be headed right for each other and one that looks to be headed right for the middle of the launch zone.

    They haven’t made it to space because they’re not sure which direction to go.
