Hello, Bigot.

You know what I find most interesting about all this? At least twice now, you justify being an asshole, a bigot, a hypocrite, by comparing yourself to others. Namely, me.

"Well, compared to you, I'm an f'ing angel!"

Thing is, this is not about me. Or anybody else on these boards. This is entirely about you.

Oh, sure, you can attempt to rationalize your behaviour by comparing yourself to someone whom you perceive on these boards to be "worse" than you but when the rubber hits the road, you're still the arrogant, hateful, bigoted, hypocritical, little man who immediately jumps on the first perceived slight against a favoured victim without waiting for the details to surface, then doesn't back down a whit despite the fact that the narrative has long since collapsed around you.

Your criticism of Trudles is the ultimate irony. You're peas in a pod: a coupla loud-mouthed Prog assholes who never apologize for anything because, by definition, you can simply never be wrong!

It can't be us! Gotta be you! It's how everybody perceives us! That female journalist I groped in BC simply took it a different way than what I intended. The AG didn't take my advice in the manner it was intended. You're a bigger asshole than I am, therefore it's OK for me to act the way I do! It's all everybody else's fault!

Fukc you, CM. Grow the fukc up & act your age, not your shoe size. What an immature fukcing child.

I truly despair for the poor, sorry bastards who are exposed to your bull$h!t on a day to day basis in the classroom or at work...

Hello, Bigot.

Further to your bull$h!t, this forum has done nothing but improve over the years.

Every single time a snivelling, whiny, snot-nosed Prog got tired of having his backside handed to him in an even argument & left for greener pastures, the quality of this place has gone up, as well as the overall IQ.

Three more left...

Japan's moon rover will be made by Toyota



Toyota is going to the moon.

The Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has teamed up with the carmaker to build a pressurized self-driving rover that will land on the lunar surface in 2029. The six-wheeled transporter will be able to carry two humans for a distance of 10,000 kilometers using solar power and Toyota's fuel cell technology.

The rover will be about the size of two minibuses, with 13 square meters of habitable space, and the astronauts on board will be able to take their suits off inside the vehicle as they explore. It will land on the moon before the human expedition arrives, and travel independently to meet them.

Close, but no cigar....

Israel's Beresheet Spacecraft Crashes Into Moon During Landing Attempt


Israel's first moon lander came up just short in its historic touchdown bid this afternoon (April 11).

The robotic Beresheet spacecraft, built by SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), aimed to become the first Israeli craft, and the first privately funded mission, ever to land softly on the moon. But the little robot couldn't quite make it, crashing into the gray dirt around 3:25 p.m. EDT (1925 GMT). Mission control lost communications with the spacecraft when it was about 489 feet (149 meters) above the moon's surface.

"We had a failure in the spacecraft; we unfortunately have not managed to land successfully," Opher Doron, the general manager of IAI, said during a live broadcast from mission control. "It's a tremendous achievement up 'til now."

China's rover is delivering the goods!

Chang'e-4: Chinese rover 'confirms' Moon crater theory
The Chinese Chang'e-4 rover may have confirmed a longstanding idea about the origin of a vast crater on the Moon's far side.

The rover's landing site lies within a vast impact depression created by an asteroid strike billions of years ago.

Now, mission scientists have found evidence that impact was so powerful it punched through the Moon's crust and into the layer below called the mantle.

Chang'e-4 has identified what appear to be mantle rocks on the surface.

It's something the rover was sent to the far side to find out.

Chunlai Li, from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, and colleagues have presented their findings in the journal Nature.

The lunar far side, which is turned away from Earth, is more rugged than the familiar near side and has fewer "maria" - dark plains formed by ancient volcanic eruptions.

The Chinese spacecraft touched down on 3 January, becoming the first spacecraft to perform a soft landing on the lunar far side. The rover then rolled off the lander to explore its surroundings.

The rover landed inside a 180km-wide impact bowl called Von Kármán crater. But that smaller crater lies within the 2,300km-wide South Pole Aitken (SPA) Basin, which covers nearly a quarter of the Moon's circumference.
