I saw on Access Hollywood last night where this new game show is in the works for next year: Contestants will be selected to be trained by the Russian Military to prepare for space travel aboard the "MIR" space shuttle. If they successfully make it past that training, they actually go with a Russian Space crew for a 10-day Space flight orbiting the earth to enter a satellite station (I think). I can't recall what kind of cash prize is involved (if any).
Anyway, I couldn't believe that the producers are actually going through with this! They're serious. Doesn't this seem a little too dangerous for the average person?
I sure da hell wouldn't do anything so far-fetched.

This kind of stuff pisses me off. What pisses me off about it is that there are people out there who spend thousands of dollar so that they can learn rocket science and devote their lives to being astronauts, and what happens, people are chosen for some stupid game show that will get put up in space by OUR tax dollars funding the spacecraft! It shouldn't be like this, and it pisses me off.

Yes and no about my status here. Yes, I've been frequenting Airliners.net for awhile, but without a username of my own. I've been watching a buddy of mine use this site for about a month, on his computer, under his own username. (He's still a member here and I won't mention his handle.). That's why I'm already familiar with some of the usual a**holes such as...... well nevermind.
Now that I just bought my own computer, I can now participate under MY OWN username and unveil other members' lunacies without affecting my buddy's more "polite" reputation.
So, no, I haven't been "banned" under another name. Anything you're seeing under SEVEN_FIFTY7 is all original.
So to all the devious and vindictive creeps who're trying to figure who I "used to be" you can relax.
