I think the guy with the pizza is the only one to enjoy, everybody else seems so bored...
To be angry is to punish yourself for the errors of others.

You're right, of course. I would only be using ex-kittens!

Wait, masquerade? You think I'm trying to hide something here? Well now, things have gotten interesting. What do you suppose I am hiding now?

[Diabolical] Why, the answer to your response lies in the very question you just asked! Indeed, an evil masquerade. I think you are indeed hiding something, Sage. A dark secret that haunts you every day, care to elaborate? [/Diabolical]

Probably not, unless it was one of those graphing calculators.

The computer in the Apollo command module had 16,000 bytes of memory, IIRC. The computer on the space shuttle uses an 8086 processor. I'm sure there's some absurd computer statistic someone could look up about the Soyuz (vacuum tubes?).

What's demotivating to me is that the pinnacle of human exploration occured before any of us were born, and there's nothing to indicate that it will be exceeded any time soon.
