How was Mars?August 12, 2012 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #891863
It was nice, but the beit Chabad there doesn’t have AC…August 12, 2012 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #891864
Oh that’s too bad. Nice pictures by the way.August 13, 2012 12:29 am at 12:29 am #891865
Yeah, it’s actually not so bad in the day, but at night it’s like -250 degrees…August 13, 2012 2:28 am at 2:28 am #891866yitayningwutParticipant
And the lack of ac is bothering you?August 13, 2012 2:45 am at 2:45 am #891867
I don’t mind the cold, but I just can’t stand sweating when all I’m doing is collecting rock samples and snapping pictures. It wasn’t so much the heat, but it’s the radiation that’ll get ya :/August 13, 2012 5:41 am at 5:41 am #891868yitayningwutParticipant
I hear.August 15, 2012 9:32 am at 9:32 am #891869ybrooklynteacherMember
you don’t mind me asking, but why did you spend so much money getting there?August 15, 2012 12:59 pm at 12:59 pm #891870
Were there any Kosher restaurants there? Was it run by alien chabbad muppets?August 15, 2012 1:10 pm at 1:10 pm #891871
Whaddya mean? It’s educational!August 15, 2012 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #891872goldersgreenerParticipant
curiosity, ybrooklyn’s teacher’s question was not that it is not educational, she knows that it is educational, she just wants to know that surely it is educational, and cheaper, to teach children how to tie shoelaces.August 15, 2012 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #891873
Lol. I agree. But think of all the space age technologies that are
being developed by NASA for space exploration. Some may make shoelaces obsolete!August 16, 2012 1:30 am at 1:30 am #891874squeakParticipant
“Some may make shoelaces obsolete!”
Imagine that! Yes, NASA brought us velcro. Money well spent, well spent indeed. I refuse to wear velcro on my shoes though, I’ll stick to the laces thank you very much. Next time someone is passing around 50+ year grants worth trillions of dollars just send them to me and I’ll try to produce something as valuable as velcro out of it.August 16, 2012 2:10 am at 2:10 am #891875
Squeak, you say that now, but just wait til you hit 75!! Actually, I don’t know if it’s because of their arthritis, or if velcro was just the biggest fad in the 1950s…August 16, 2012 10:00 am at 10:00 am #891876
Do martians wear clothes and shoes? With shoelaces?August 16, 2012 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #891877
Umm, I haven’t met any Martians yet. They moved out because the Eruv wasn’t reliable.August 16, 2012 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #891878TheGoqParticipant
Curiosity who’s responsible for that weird mohawk?August 16, 2012 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #891879🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
I know of one couple who moved out because they couldn’t get Cholov Yisroel milk.August 16, 2012 8:57 pm at 8:57 pm #891880nitpickerParticipant
“NASA brought us velcro”
nope!August 16, 2012 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #891881WIYMember
You reminded me of a joke. Here goes:
Two astronauts land on Mars. Their mission: to check whether there is oxygen on the planet.
‘Give me the box of matches,’ says one. ‘Either it burns and there is oxygen, or nothing happens’
He takes the box, and is ready to strike a match when, out of the blue, a Martian appears waving all his arms.. ‘No, no, don’t!. The two guys look at each other, worried. Could there be an unknown explosive gas on Mars. Still, he takes another match… and… A crowd of hysterical Martians is coming, all waving their arms: ‘No, no, don’t do that!’
One of the astronauts says, ‘This looks serious. What are they afraid of? Nonetheless, we’re here for Science, to know if man can breathe on Mars’.
So he strikes a match — which flames up, burns down, and….
So he turns to the Martians and asks, ‘Why did you want to prevent us from striking a match?’
The leader of the Martians says, “Today is Shabbos!”August 16, 2012 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #891882OneOfManyParticipant
lol takah, do we really obstruct their view of Venus?August 17, 2012 4:19 pm at 4:19 pm #891883TheGoqParticipant
Why did u kill the cat?August 18, 2012 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #891884
Oh no… This hotzaas diba is exactly why I left Vos Iz Neias… I didn’t kill that darned cat! It was a split second decision, okay!? It jumped in front of my car from behind a hatzolah van that was ILLEGALLY parked on the wrong side of the street! It was either that dumb suicidal cat, or the nerdy Catholic missionary who was soliciting some Yeshiva guys in the opposite lane!! If I woulda hit him instead, everyone would be screaming, “Curiosity killed the Catholic!! Curiosity killed the Catholic! Waa!! Waaa!!” Everyone thinks it’s soooo easy drifting a 15-seater packed with 25 screaming Chassidish kids through the eye of a needle!! Why don’t you try it and see how easy it is?!?!?August 19, 2012 1:38 am at 1:38 am #891885
Why did u kill the cat?
Yekkusiel cut his payis.August 19, 2012 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm #891886Shopping613 🌠Participant
I’m rolling here curiosity….but weren’t the children screaming BECAUSE they didn’t want to see the cat get killed? Hey where I live its not the suicidal cats its the suicidal deer and moose that walk right up to your van and try to eat your hat off on the way to mincha…..August 19, 2012 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #891887
Shopping613 – are you kiddin? These Chassidish kids light cat-infested dumpsters on fire for sport! As soon as they saw it jump out they started screaming, “SCHMIRN DEM KAZ!!!” It’s all their fault I hit the poor thing.
