A publicity stunt for Gravity?

And drank the one less filling I
And that has made all the difference.

Crispy-backed toad? / [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

NASA confirmation notwithstanding... [In reply to] Can't Post

...I'm a little skeptical.

How the heck big is that frog that we can see it from this distance? I'm assuming that the rocket is a little bigger than the ones you buy at the model store and launch in your back yard.

"BOTH [political] extremes are dangerous. But more dangerous are team fanboys who think all the extremists are on the OTHER side." (CNN reader comment)
