    Saw the very first shuttle land way back in 1889 or something like that. It was cool, and I'm glad I did it, but I'm not sure it was worth the drive.

    Hey, does this scenery look familiar?

    They can't land in rain. Someone forgot to install windshield wipers.

    I was PISSED last week. In all of the time I've spent in FLA, I've never been down for a shuttle launch. We were in Disney World all last week for vacation and I was all juiced up to watch the launch. It was beautiful and clear all day.... until about an hour before the launch. It clouded up just enough that we couldn't see a damned thing. WTF.

    See what happens when you shoot at the right time? Everything looks cooler.

    SACRILEGE! That is actually the retro-coolest fight scene evar!!!

    (though if the Gorn was telegraphing his punches any more, he'd be an operator for AT&T...)

    MH: I want to go like my Dad did, peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    Sys: Fake news?? Trump's a Fake President for God's sake.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    Homer: I believe that the children are our future. Unless we stop them now.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.

    Cooler as in radder? Or cooler as in cold colors?

    I also ran the Auto-Adjust White Balance thing on the sky.... it lets you spot meter for white balance. I think it looks better, no? What would you have adjusted?
