Sit back and be prepared to fall asleep through the narcissistic journey that is 'about me' (i hate doing these things)
Im a 300 year old vampire that *doesnt* sparkle in the daytime, but spontaniously bursts into whatever song is in my head at the time, i also like Watchin tv shows and movies. Playing knifey spooney, I love Star trek, i think its a brilliant documentary. Reading comics. Adoring zombies. Reading books, Staring at the vastness and majestic wonder of space and wondering how much it costs God in electricity to keep those pwetty lights on. Good jokes. Drawing and just being creative in general. Bad jokes (ones that generally involve chickens crossing roads) wondering how cool it would be to be a bounty hunter on the good ship Beebop, and have a dog like ein that can hack computers. I wouldn't mind owning my own Tachikoma either (thats a big tank thing....not a virtual pet). I love my video games, so much so i decide to post what i play on 'the tube of you'. i'm basically just a big kid. I love Dogs, cats are. funny sometimes, but till i see one catch a stick, its dogs ftw, sorry cat lovers.
On this day in 1959, America met theMercury Seven
On April 9, 1959, NASA introduced the Mercury Seven, the first American astronauts. After exhaustive tests that some called "torture," the seven were selected from a pool of more than 500. The criteria for selection were extremely specific, including everything from educational achievement to the ability to withstand sitting in a 130-degree chamber for hours. They were all military test pilots, and they stood 5'11" or shorter, because NASA intended to build small spacecraft.

At their first press conference, the astronauts wore civilian clothes, despite all holding military ranks. They seemed like normal guys, and NASA was somewhat dismayed when the men turned into overnight celebrities. (See The Right Stuff for an account of their, ahem, adventures.) The Mercury Seven were: Scott Carpenter, L. Gordon "Gordo" Cooper Jr., John H. Glenn Jr., Virgil "Gus" Grissom, Walter "Wally" Schirra Jr., Alan Shepard Jr., and Donald "Deke" Slayton.
All seven of the men ended up serving on missions, though John Glenn was clearly the most famous, as the first American in orbit and the sole Marine in the seven. He was also the longest-lived member of the group, passing away on December 8, 2016. (Gus Grissom died tragically in the Apollo 1 fire on January 27, 1967.)
Here's the press conference featuring the seven, dressed in snappy suits. Note the ashtrays.
In this last bit of the conference, note John Glenn's answer at 4:15. He was asked what the toughest part of the testing was. Sample quote: "We had some pretty good tests... If you figure how many openings there are on the human body and how far you can go into any one of 'em.... Now you answer which one would be the toughest for you, and [shrugs]."
Here's to hoping this is the best year yet!
yeah but shouldnt it be less than, like light mayonaise or light beer.... shouldnt a light year therefore be mild and guilt free? lol
If you really wanna get scientific you can mention einsteins special theory of relativity for time dilation as matter reaches light speed but radio waves and light reach pluto in 5.3 hours at 9 trillion kilometers per year (not hour) and its never longer than 5.3 hours.. i think newcastle may have different grammar is it. (nice beer tho)... and i did enjoy HIM and yeah i think its clear his dad is a douche.
Ps you have an unnessisary n in quadrant
you shouldn't be so mean about it, i am studying to join JAXA.
A light-year (or light year, abbreviation: ly) is a unit of length used informally to express astronomical distances. It is approximately 9 petametres, or 9 trillion kilometres (or about 6 trillion miles).[note 1] As defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), a light-year is the distance that light travels in vacuum in one Julian year (365.25 days). Because it includes the word year, the term light-year is sometimes misinterpreted as a unit of time.
It's not a figure of speech even wikipedia says its misinterpreted
