OK so this is a little of topic and sort of way out there.

Congratulations to SpaceX, NASA, and the American people.

With the successful launch of SpaceX Dragon on its way to the ISS.

 

This marks an new era in space travel that could not have been made possible by

the advancement in technology.

Technology that makes games like WOWP possible.

 

If it was not for the history of flight humans would have never been able to achieve what we have achieved

in the past decades of advancement.

Long gone are the days of vacuum tubes and iron gears.

Long gone are the toggle switches, rheostats and needles going round a dial.

 

If you have not seen the inside of the Dragon then google it.

It is a site to see in its simplicity and roomy interior.

 

We as a race have gone from writing, 1000K computers to terabytes.

From games that require dice and imagination to flying on a screen with mouse and keyboard.

I'm getting one of those Bill Gates chips installed in my frontal cortex

the mouse and keyboard are so 2019

:hiding:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.
