A fine example of military technology working its way down into everyday life. A big round of thanks to all you government contractors out there!
Bitman Monday Sep 8 06:28 PM
So which end do you light?

You know - I sat here and tried to think of something funny to say about this.

I don't know, I can't help but hear Pee Wee Herman going, "What?!? What?!?"

Your tax $ do double duty strengthing America, in that we tranferred the technology to our commercial arm. They in turn arranged to have them built by an offshore subcontractor for Wal-Mart, so that you too can have this technology in your ears for a mere $1.98.
God Bless America and its taxpayers that still have jobs.

Ah, in the days of old....
Somehow, I imagine an aged Kate Winslet standing on the bow a vast ship, sailing mightly through the ocean, getting the worst ear infections ever....

As you probably recall, I, too, am a government contractor. So thanks, suckers, for my big fat paycheck!
elSicomoro Tuesday Sep 9 01:57 PM
Yeah...too bad we can't vote on government contractors.
dave Tuesday Sep 9 02:22 PM
Yeah, too bad. I can't wait for that day, because that will be the day the whole country goes down the fuckin' tube. The government needs contractors, and the people need the government to need contractors. Trust me, it's much better this way.
elSicomoro Tuesday Sep 9 11:25 PM
Most contractors are fine, I'm sure...you, on the other hand...so, what exactly are we getting for our dollars with you?
dave Wednesday Sep 10 09:02 AM
I suppose you think I'm allowed to tell you. Ha.

Sure, where did you think Depends Undergarmets came from, the space program?

So THAT'S how Dave is able to sit at the computer for 8 hours straight...

You work at SAIC, Bitman? Which area?
Bitman Friday Sep 12 08:10 PM
dave Friday Sep 12 11:38 PM
I actually meant, where location wise?
Bitman Saturday Sep 13 03:29 PM
Yes, I know. I was being indirect; that web site tells you exactly where I work.
xoxoxoBruce Saturday Sep 13 07:01 PM
What? You snuck out of Baltimore like the Colts.
dave Saturday Sep 13 10:03 PM
You're thinking of Bitmap, I believe.
