    yes

    Being better than Captain Kirk isn't saying much.

    Now if you tried to say you were better than Captain Picard I would choke you until you died.

    It's easy to be better than Picard.

    Just have hair.

    Bam, right there, now you're better than Picard.

    so it turns out the nice guy thing was a facade and you are actually a horrible bad opinion demon

    He's mentioned a lot in 20th Century Boys. Good comic.

    So, that's something.

    neil armstrong has one of my favorite quotes of all time, especially given that it's coming from a dude like him:
    when asked about fitness
    ‎"I believe that every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don't intend to waste any of mine running around doing exercises."

    space is mostly a whole lotta nothing

    no? I mean, it holds the rest of the universe.

    You do realize that the earth, hell even this solar system are an infinitesimally tiny percentage of all the mass in the universe. Space is pretty much the polar opposite of nothing. It's practically everything except the tiny amount of mass that represents Earth.

    Well, it's true that the vast majority of space is 'emptiness' or dark matter or whatever you want to call it, but the vast majority of the ocean is just water, too, so

    let's just agree they're both pretty amazing things that should be explored more

    You know what.

    I was sad for a bit.

    Then I thought.

    He lived to a good old age. And he stepped on the moon's face.

    Dude lived the freaking dream man. It's amazing that that guy represented the combined forces of Thousands of people focused on him, Buzz Aldrin and the often forgotten Michael Collins (who only got to stay in lunar orbit, but that's pretty cool still).

    He's like christopher columbus or James Cook His name will go on forever. And he handled it with grace and dignity until the very end.

    Don't see his death as something sad see his entire life as a map on how to live.

    Now let's go jump on mars.

    Neal Stephenson and I were not standing in order to make it quite clear who Neil #1 was and would always be.

    I spent a couple of days in Neil Armstrong's company. He was as nice, as modest and as wise as anybody could have hoped for. If you ever wondered what my face looks like when I'm going "This is really happening, and I am the luckiest man in the world," it looks a lot like it does in this photo.

    His achievements were the stuff of legend, and I am lucky to have known him, if only for a brief time, I am sad that he's gone, proud as a member of the human race that he did what he did for all of us.

    ask him if it's okay if you get a huge boner during the three breasted hooker scene, then tell him there'll be hell to pay if you stay flaccid the whole movie

    that'll nip that shit right in the bud

    dark matter/energy are kinda sorta nothing but actually something maybe we're not sure, and combined that's 96% of everything so you're both kinda rightish

    So..you're defining "space" as just the stuff that's between the mass? Because you do understand when we talk about exploring space, we didn't send me to the space around the moon to study the emptiness, right? You do understand we're talking about exploring all that stuff that's actually out there.

    also, dark matter isn't maybe "nothing", it's just that we can only detect it indirectly by the gravitational effects
    that's why it's called dark matter
    simply because it doesn't seem to reflect/emit any radiation

    but it's definitely matter and it definitely has mass

    Oh man. You could be right. When he swung around to the back side of the moon he would have literally been the most isolated guy in the world.

    how big

    dreadnaughts are the ones the size of a tank that house a severely crippled marine
    titans are the things the size of skyscrapers that take entire crews to operate

    wraithlords are eldar walkers that house the soulstone of a powerful warrior
