China has just placed a man in orbit around the earth. What is next? Could they develop shag carpeting, jumbo jets and 8-track tape decks? Maybe touch-tone phones are next. What I'm saying is this: BFD. China had access to all of our technology because they make it for us. Yes they are our Wal-Mart, Happy Meal, $59 Surround Sound System, Radio-Shack stocking be - General Tao’s Chicken - hatches. I’m surprised Bangladesh doesn’t have people in orbit yet. Can anyone tell me if Kalifornia is planning to put a man on the moon by the end of this decade?
The technology is there and has been since 1964. I’m surprised Yamaha doesn’t sell the L.E.O. Suzuki Katana in malls. If they weren’t afraid of lawyers Disney would be shooting rich people to Disney Fiji from Cape Canaveral. The POS shuttle we had fall out of sky back earlier this summer was older than my car and still more advanced than the Yu-Gi-Oh can you shot into space. Heck your num-nut cousins in North Korea, a country that feeds most of its citizens straw all winter, has got missiles that will hit Alaska. Hello Kitty they have nukes. That is like the Crips in East St. Louis building an H-bomb. All you got is Chinese John Glenn. We have been tearing down John Glenn Elementary Schools across this nation for the last decade.
Back on topic: China you went into orbit when a 3 Gig P5 chipset and support circuitry can be squeezed into something the size of a gay man’s wallet. I’m sorry China you did it while the rest of your nation can’t read what they want because you’re a bunch of Commies. And they can’t come and go when they please because you’re a bunch of Commies. BTW your rocket looked like something Madonna would have leaning up against the wall in the corner of her “latex room.”
Oh, and you did all of this impressive Buck Rogers shit on a 30-minute tape delay. China, if you want to impress anyone other than Viet Nam you could try losing the paranoia and launch the next rocket with a nothing more than a commodore 64 and do it live! Then do it with the lowest bidder.
China: Try moving that technology juggernaut of yours on to developing a democratic society and a scheme for voting. Master that and we’ll send a team of observers from Florida so that we too could master the art of counting.
