Hugo Drax ain't got nothing on Elon Musk.

Elon Musk owns a fucking Tesla Roadster that just finished its first trip around the sun...
Hugo Drax got flushed into space by Roger Moore.

Hmm for some reason I’m really craving an Azar’s Big Boy burger all the way with fries and catsup

Hell’s YEAH!

Outstanding launch. So far very good. So happy my son could see something as exciting and historic as watching the Apollo missions when I even younger than he is.

Go NASA/SpaceX

It's pretty amazing how clear the pictures were and how smooth the ride appeared to be compared to the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions. Even the Space Shuttles appeared to be rocking and rolling.

I imagine there was some kind of video processing that smoothed out the picture. The vibration environment created by the Falcon 9 is still pretty substantial.

...Bob's Big Boy is big on fresh and big on flavor. Their ice cream floats are served over two scoops of premium hand-dipped vanilla ice cream and their pie selection is pure heaven.

Their burgers and fries are cooked to perfection and their breakfast; well, lets just say a breakfast at Bob's Big Boy after a long hard night of 'Space-
Work' will keep you in orbit ALL.DAY.LONG.


SPACE-X may use conventional rockets, but SPACE-Y and SPACE-Z are going to deliver the Big Boy experience to the entire galaxy.
...and since we already have a Tesla Roadster in orbit, the first Big Boy in space will be a drive through from day one !!!

Good copy. I want to see a vacuum-space corridor established for Wednesday night cruisin'. Bob's will be the perfect turnaround for hoods-up parking and to display the appropriate-clad Elonette straphangers ("Get your ass off the fender honey so you don't scratch the paint. Just stand there & look bitchin'.")

No dingo-balls allowed and, naturally, American-made Moon hubcaps will be the benchmark.
