I'm the manager of Denny's just outside of Dale, Indiana. I spend a lot of time watching my staff move dirt around on the floor.

I don't think Andy got it....

Denny's is a national chain restaurant, mate. If your name was Denny, you sure as shootin' wouldn't be hangin' out with us.

Skywalker: homeschooling rules! If there's a community college nearby, I'd (vaguely) recommend dual-enrollment when your parents don't want to try teaching you math anymore -- that's what I did. I say vaguely because I don't know what the dual-enrollment programs are like where you're at.

I must confess to an ignorance of American eating establishments, at least those who do not have an outlet on every highstreet in the UK and have a "Mc" or "Colonel" in their names. :)

Can you be sure I'm not Denny though(and the above is just subterfuge), I may have just got bored with my private jet and sailing my yacht in the carribean and decided to talk with the riff-raff. :)

Meh, it's possible. But there's far more interesting riff-raff to be talking to.

Hey, there's no "colonel" in there. Kentucky Fried Colonel isn't very appetizing, in my humble opinion.

Well, Burt came on a while back and told us to quit bugging him about when SS2 would be out, what the design would look like, whether we would be able to afford a ticket, etc....

So we came up with this to kill some time. :wink:

Spacecowboy: Thanks, I think homeschooling is good too. And yeah, I'm already dual-enrolled for calc the coming semester, b/c I mostly teach myself these days and tutoring myself in trig got old real fast.

And yeah, where's all the activity gone? John Carmack is busy and only posts oonce a month or less, I gave up keeping up w/ Starchaser, and JPA doesn't have alot to talk about. Hmm, maybe I ought to climb on one of the Away balloon missions and perpetrate some news...

Yeah, yeah. We know. The overgrown balloon animal. (j/k, I actually am a big fan of the idea -- not as dramatic as a BFR, but if it works, who cares?)

The perpetration of news isn't a bad thing. But like I said, we're mostly just waiting for the teams to wrap up with the spaceship-building <points at JP> and get back to publicity generation.

You know, (true cofessions time), that I ride a unicycle. Combine that with the balloon animals and I could get a job at the circus If this whole space thing falls through. :)

(it would pay better....)

Actually, I think the DSS concept is way cooler than a rocket, especially if you are thinking about wanting to go up yourself (cost and saftey, and of course the really awesome views!) I understand how it's not their point to make news, but to make progress; but it would be aweful nice to have something to talk about none the less.

WOw, an aerospace engineer with a funky side! Never would have seen that coming...
