If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

um, what where they transfering? it couldn't have been just random data. And for such a record to be placed, they do have some slow web servers!

NO doubt their slow webserving can be attributed to the slashdotting they just got. In my opinion, they are lucky to still be standing.

Sin is a dangerous toy in the hands of the virtuous. It should be left to the congenitally sinful, who know when to play with it and when to let it alone.
