Jun 22 2010Functional AND Stylish: Space-Travel Poncho

space-travel-poncho.jpg

And to think NASA blew $12M on every space suit when they could have been using $4 neon ponchos. You oughta be ashamed, NASA! Also, for not making me an honorary astronaut after going to Space Camp. Twice. What?! I rode the human gyroscope without puking!*

*The first time. The second time I projectile vomited freeze-dried meatloaf all over the other cadets. And don't even get me started on the centrifuge! (There was diarrhea involved)

Poncho Win [failblog]

Thanks to Shenanigans, who once visited outerspace with nothing but a loincloth on just like Jesus did.

Ponchos doesnt make any sense for space travel....Towels are a necessity for hitchhiking throughout the galaxy

I AM SITTING IN PISS

Long last the robots!

Space travel, HA

WORST english to french translation EVER!

Whoever reads this and doesn't make the connection between space travel and a pancho should go home and rethink their lives. Luke Skywalker (you know..form star wars) wore one and new a thing or 2 about space..

1) Don't fly without an R2 unit
2) Degobah system has a swamp

..... Zima soup.....

this makes my pants full....

@1 Nice!!

@5 Your know it all attitude is distasteful. To have or not to have the ability to differentiate Star Wars references is not a basis to rethink your life. However, misspelled words should be.

*poncho
*from
*two
*Dagobah

"space travel" my eye - it's not even *NEON*!

@9 use that pink thing in your skull please. First of all it's called a joke; secondly, the part about rethinking your life was a star wars quote; My thrird point to make here is that there is something called a typo. I comment while I'm at work so when I'm trying to finish typing before my boss comes by I will make a mistake....so SUCK IT!

Some of you on teh interwebz need to learn how to tell when someone is joking... I have aspergers and I don't even have that much trouble with it...

@9 also knew instead of new

Yeah #9 he's typing at work and v'ri;fq'[xcvi/n/rvbqr/cvgiqe
wnc gxvc;;v gqncr'qr'gcvwaxdlkxva fuck knows if he can spell f;qerihxc;qrhixfn;qe.nxfjc;eofund[x'rmivq;nwxr.dkvcnqw;ai because of whatever reason fr[cfgnqrlfmhnq;doerfvc;.qwn.

Best translation in French ever.

@ 11. - Unlike yourself, I have leverage at work and have the ability to roam the "interwebz" without the man pressuring me to produce TP reports. (Yes, that is a Office Space reference for all those who don't and may have to rethink their lives. lol)
I understand that your comment was a joke just like the rest of the comments on GW. I was just noting that your comment was distasteful. You would have noticed that if you read my comment instead of spewing out words of nonsense while trying to act like your working in front of your boss.
Like Jay-Z said, "You can pay for school but you can't buy class."

Well I work in a call center so multiple bosses walk by frequently (I'm on lunch now :D) and I just hate it when people correct my grammar or spelling because well it's online and it's quite easy to make typos... I don't see what's so hard to understand about that? And if you understand it was a joke to begin with then you wouldn't have said "Your know it all attitude is distasteful. To have or not to have the ability to differentiate Star Wars references is not a basis to rethink your life"...just sayin

When I see someone commenting on a misspelled word in this sort of context it irritates me because it's like calling a fat chick fat. No shit, obviously she's fat no one needs to point it out. It's on the same level of insults used by kids in elementary school...

@1 WIN! 42 Bon homme!

@ 18 Ok.

@1 funny. U'r smart.

pssshh i wear these errrr day

Soon we will all fly in space, it will be cheaper ;)

I have a neon poncho, I only need a propeller or something

The advertising reminds me of the packaging for a laser pointer I got. The claims were that it was good for many things like pointing (obviously), pets love it, and your date will too. Pffft, yah right, cheap skate :)

F**k the poncho! just remember to bring a towel XP gotta love hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy
