Feb 17, 2009: You Go Girl...

Ralph Kramden said, "Pow, to the moon, Alice, to the moon".
America laughed at the preposterous notion that Alice, or anyone, could go to the moon... in 1955.

Fast forward a couple of years and JFK said, to the moon America, to the moon. So we sent men into space and then women too.
Now, there's a woman on the International Space Station named Sandra Magnus, and she wants more women in space.

Quote:
More than 120 Girl Scouts from the River Bluffs Council in Illinois got a once-in-a-lifetime chance to talk to an astronaut orbiting the Earth on the International Space Station on Jan. 29, thanks in part to Boeing.
The event, to teach Scouts about space, science and technology, was held at Boeing St. Louis facilities, started with a view of Houston’s Space Center, and a team of NASA specialists who connected the astronaut, Sandra Magnus, via satellite to Boeing.


Quote:
She then emphasized the importance of studying science and math, and encouraged the girls telling them: "You can do whatever you put your mind to.
"I was about your age when I decided to be an astronaut and I didn’t really think I had a chance; I was in a small town growing up, and it seemed like something that only other people got to do, and I never even thought that it might be possible," Magnus told the Girl Scouts.
"But I decided to try, because I didn’t want to look back on my life and ask myself the question, ’What if?
What if I only would have tried that, would it have been possible if I just would have tried it?’ And so I decided to try, and lo and behold, it’s possible.
So I want you guys to remember that, I want you to believe in yourselves, I want you to find out what your dream is, and I want you to pursue it. Because it is possible."
You go girl!

And they all look at her hair and think, "NO WAY!"



Sheldonrs  Tuesday Feb 17 08:22 AM

It's useless to get these kids' hopes up. In space, no one can hear you dream.



TheMercenary  Tuesday Feb 17 09:40 AM

nice hair, I guess that's what happens when you wiz around the world at 17,000 miles per hour.

The space station is in a Low Earth Orbit and can be seen from Earth with the naked eye; it orbits at an altitude of approximately 350 km (190 nautical miles) above the surface of the Earth,[4][5][6] and travels at an average speed of 27,700 kilometres (17,210 mi) per hour, completing 15.7 orbits per day.[4]

so, to girls, hair is more important than anything? I know it was tossed off in jest, but that is still a very sexist remark.


HungLikeJesus  Tuesday Feb 17 10:16 AM

But isn't the whole event sexist?

Is that anything like pissing in the wind?

You go, girls!

Yeah. Chicks hate that!

WillieO  Tuesday Feb 17 01:29 PM

So... Don King was the first Black guy in space?



WillieO  Tuesday Feb 17 01:30 PM

Maybe we got it all wrong with those punk kids in the 80's and their spiked mohawks. Maybe they were just hoping to be astronauts.

Well since the sexism flame war has already been started, I'd like to go ahead and toss in some fuel: how does zero-gravity affect menstruation?

If I recall, it affects it negatively.

Or, maybe that was the tequila...

anyhoo---what sexist remark? Hair, ladies and gentlemen, is everything; unless you are Sheldon and are sexy in your own right without need for props.

Of course now Sheldon will remind me that he is gay. I know, Sheldon, I KNOW.

Well for one thing, instead of tampons, they need nose plugs.

Aww Shel, don't tell me with everything you've ever said here, that I stepped over a line?


Sirensong12  Tuesday Feb 17 04:01 PM

I thought it was about the attitude of teenagers in general, although a hair comment is more specific to girls.

In my experience, teens will focus on the least important detail in order to dismiss something as "completely lame". Prejudiced? Yes. But so much humour relies on that.

That's why it made me laugh, anyway.

Nope. I was just shocked that you thought nobody could hear me ream.


Shawnee123  Tuesday Feb 17 06:03 PM

That's because you forgot to turn the space radio on.

"Houston, can you hear me? Houston, we have a, a, ah, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh..."

I thought that scream was debris from the destroyed satellite. It was your bf.


Elspode  Tuesday Feb 17 07:35 PM

So...are people going to be fucking in space, or what?

Shouldn't the astronauts be given memberships in The Cellar so that they can share their risque pics with us?



Shawnee123  Tuesday Feb 17 07:43 PM

How do you know I'm not an astronaut? Hm?

I am thinking that experiment has been already done.


ZenGum  Tuesday Feb 17 08:47 PM

You know why NASA has never sent a woman to the moon?


The moon doesn't need cleaning.





Shawnee123  Tuesday Feb 17 08:50 PM

But it does.

I won't be that astronaut though. Cleaning is boring.

No it isn't. you're the one who inferred that they would think it because they were girls rather than for any other reason (like being young and superficial)
