There's no such thing as a space ambassador.

Better tell the Raelians.

I'm mostly excited about the music.

At least there's more chance for a nerd to go to bed with a hot Raelian.

But when is Bea Arthur Night? I'm holding out for that.

You'll want the Handbag House, then. Three doors down. Look for the lace doilies and the tea cozy.

You don't watch much porn, do you?

Yes, yes, I see you playing with them. I know they're irresistably pendulous, but please, no dribbling.

Not to space maybe, but there are ambassadors from space.

This sounds like an excellent opportunity to rub shoulders with the kinds of people who might be receptive to my idea of launching a new space project:

I want to send thousands of robotic attack spiders to Mars.

It makes sense if you think about it; any alien race who is coming to Earth might see the barren desolation that is Mars covered with these killer spider-bots and think, "Damn, those Earthlings do not fuck around. They killed this whole planet. I guess we better not invade them..."

It's a perfectly rational idea.

I'd love to go and meet up with like-minders. Email me if you're interested in meeting at the bar.

I'd love to go, SOFIA hanger or no, but I think it'd be much cooler if it were in the HUGE airship hangar.

>>I think it'd be much cooler if it were in the HUGE airship hangar

So did we! and that was the original intent until NASA decided no, and I guess when you're on federal property, you do what they say.

Maybe next year, if this one goes well, we'll get into the big one!

You know, for kids.

No, see, this is NASA at Burning Man.

The stern ubernerd who lives in my forebrain is taking umbrage at eletronic music == burning man, because rave/IDM/electronic music != burning man.

Has the Navy cleaned it up yet?

the hangar, which has been boarded up since 2002 when pollution investigators discovered the presence of toxics including PCBs.


It would be a totally dreamy space to throw a party...
