I believe the Space Cafe is the more appropriate place for this post ... but, in the interests of complete and impartial coverage, our favorite "kicked out of the Xprize" family team has not given up. They are, according to their website at http://www.blueridgeairlines.com/products115295.html (see bottom of page) well positioned to compete for the Bigelow Prize.

It's still so funny to read their site etc... Also how they keep it calling "UFO" UNIDENTIFIED Flying Object lol..

I think they can't identify their stuff as their flying object or as some flying trash ;)
Also, that flying is too much to it...

So not unidentified.. not flying...

So what do they develop ? "Object" :P

Sigurd ... do we know if any of the folks at BRN post here at all? Do you have any unidentified flying objections to doing some cross-referencing for us? :)

My money is on Splinter being BRN's lead engineer.

That would explain a great deal, wouldn't it?

I can only compare IP Addresses.. I do not know any of their IP addresses so I can't compare..

Maybe Briggs and Stratton could sponsor the "hooptie", it seems to be appropriate technology.
On the other hand, Home Depot, since that seems to be the origin of most of the materials used to construct the "UFO".

The BRN Null-Inertia drive uses barotropic non-newtonian fluid (bnnf) for coolant and as a nice comfy place to keep the wormhole busy when its not needed. While Home Depot does have a good stock of organic-fiber cellulose for the internal space frame and external cladding, The bnnf and powersource can only be found at the greasetraps of Little Ceasers and the Primary Fermination Vats of Thunderbird Wineries.

What's your point Ace?

Everyone else is poking fun at BRN because they're a sad parody of engineering. But you? Are you a redneck or something?

sorry for a post with not much info but just had to say the more i hear of these guys the more i laugh! they got into the xprize without identifying their own sourcer! whivh i could identify with a word that would have me kicked of the forum! they wanna enter an orbital race with it, enough to have u pissing urself already no? yet they are still one of the most talked about teams here!!!!! they are doing something right, perhaps theyll release a song next, bet half the forum would buy it cause its a bit funny or something! they get more attention than most teams! hahaha amazing, im starting to admire them!

You're not from around here, are you? No, Ace is just speaking like a true, inner-city hommie, yo, sup bruther!

Eeeeeeew, I feel disgusting just typing that. Like I need to take a shower now or something. Anyway, if he were a redneck he would speak with an unintelligable southern accent/drawl and use words like "reckon'" and "warshcloth" (note the r). Ace was speaking like an inner-city ghetto member, that's what the whole "hommie" dialect is.

In any case, BRN is pretty funny stuff. I hope they stay in business for a long time offering us their revolutionary, industry-changing brand of humor -er- technology. Sometimes you just need a laugh... :P

Oh, the people at BRN come from an inner-city ghetto? Is that the point then?

It would seem so as the only way they are going to fly is if they re-light that crack pipe they were smoking in the design phase...
