Post What's the Spaceflight Cafe?   Posted on: Sat Jun 12, 2004 5:44 pm
Some X PRIZE messageboard members have been asking for a forum where they can go to chat off-topic, and here it is.

The Spaceflight Cafe is designed to host discussions about topics that don't really match any of the other forums.

Come here to talk about nuclear fusion, Cassini flying to Saturn, the latest issue of Popular Science, or whatever crosses your mind.

The moderators will also use the Spaceflight Cafe as a place to deposit off-topic postings that were originally in other forums.

Hot and steaming please ... actually, I've got a nice BIG cup here on my desk. Us writers rely on monocaffeine propellant. :shock: Keeps us pumping right up into LEO.

Careful Ralph, having lived in both the US and Europe I've found that in general Europeans like their coffee pretty strong. Remember the movie "Bagdad Cafe"? Don't drink it all at once, or you'll be up at GEO in no time.

Too bad you're still in "Thermosphere" :lol: so maybe you'll have to increase your monocaffeine propellant to post faster :roll:
You'll need an other 28 before you reach sub orbital :o

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the paradigm of the Worthless Post: it has no more reason to exist than does a mosquito, but it always serves to bring a humorous touch to the topic.

The moral of the above: if you're going to make an off-topic post, it'd better be funny.

That reminds me...

A man walked into a bar. When he woke up the next morning, he said "****, that hurt!"

Oh thats very good, I nearly choked on my meat pie! :lol: I suppose you heard the one about the dyslexic pimp who opened a warehouse? (p.s. I reckon this is the only thread where jokes should be posted, if at all.)

Oh, may God forgive me, I've created a monster.....

Hey, y'all wanna hear a dirty joke?

A white horse fell in a mud-puddle.

Forumtitles change pretty fast on this forum. A fitft message is already good for "Troposphere".
10 seems to mean "Stratosphere"
20 "Mesophere"
50 "Thermosphere"
100 "Suborbital"
200 ??
other ??
