...you can, without conscious thought, tell the date any Space.com article was published by its URL (i.e. *030812.html is August 12, 2003), and actually have a couple of the best URLs memorized.

Keep it goin', folks!

... the space between your ears is purchased for use as a hard-vacuum test chamber.

Pretty obvious way to increase the number of posts you make if you ask me. :)

Yes alright, double post, my bad... :roll: I was getting a weird message when I tried to post and it wasn't going up on the board, so I tried the old "keep trying it until it works trick," but gave up on the second try. Don't suppose one can just delete a post completely on this board can they?

...you become very opinionated on the issue of SDV v. EELV.

...your AIM screename was named after an influential rocket scientist.

...you look up at a starry night sky and think which one should we put a colony on?

Just my thoughts on the matter. 8)

Oddly enough the same thing just happened to me. Just click the "X" button on the top right of one of your double-posts and it's gone. Considering DKH's response, however, deleting one of the double-posts would kinda throw off the continuity of this thread. Not to mention it would be a whole lot less funny. But hey, it's your post.

...when you've studiously observed, yet cautiously kept your distance from the (dare I say it?) "Orbital Mechanics" thread.

Hey! It just gave me a nasty message, too! I'm starting to think Siggy's playing games with us!

...when you decide it's time to finally learn calculus just because you really, REALLY want to understand what the hell they're talking about in the OM thread.
