To mark the conquest of Jupiter

Posted July 7, 2016 into Lunch Time Video by John Birmingham

Well, we'll conquer its gassy ass one day, I'm sure. Now we've got an honest to goddamned probe in orbit.

Until then, and to celebrate our coming victory over the rest of the solar system, enjoy this fantastic vid, narrated by Carl Sagan.

Its one of my go to videos to cheer myself up. In the spirit of space exploration and our hopes for the future I offer Petry Baelish on the importance of ambition in space exploration. https://youtu.be/32vlOgN_3QQ

Indeed wasn't it one our the American Presidents who claimed " What divides us pales in comparison to what unites us".

For my fellow countrymen, I sometimes wonder if that statement still holds merit, but I believe so.

Thats really well done. couple of this I think should be pointed out though.

1 I see no Galactic Marines or Troopers and no form of gun platforms.
2 The space ships quite fkn obviously have no " NUKE THE FKRS FROM ORBIT" Capability and that fkn sucks.
3 Whats with the fkn wings on the space suits, thats fine , but I see no ordnance on them. You would at a minimum put 10 shooter fire works fkn things to shoot at ya buddy......adn thats a fkn MINIMUM!
4 THE WENCH IN THE FURRY OUTFIT AT THE END LOOKS FKN HOT!

I was trying to figure out why Sausage Party looked familiar and then I remembered this short film put out by local KC production studio, MK12, the same folks who did the title scenes for Stranger than Fiction, and some of the effects for Casino Royale.

Didn't see his name in the credits but pretty sure Tyler Durden exercised some editotrial control over that clip.

Well, the former lead me to believe that in some dark alley somewhere the DNA to the later was provided doggie style.

At least you were not asked to search the internet for Speculum, in an era before pop up blockers.

I'm still scarred by the experience.

this is how the devil will take over the world. With ads that make you feel either happy, gushy, sad or hopeful. And we won't realise until it is all pitchforks and dipping genitals in lava pits.

so in the end a "win" is watching a footie match form behind a big panel of glass like a bunch of VIP Wa*&kers?

on the other hand if i was trying to explain the meaning of the word "mortified" to foreign language students, the expression on his face and the video is what i would use.

That is pretty good.
However.
An excuse to not go to his mate's place?
He should have just taken a dive and clutched at one of his extremities whilst contorting his face to represent unimaginable agony.
That would have worked, wouldn't it?

I just tried that move while sitting on the couch scrolling through Twitter with a James Squire Golden Ale in the other hand - my iPhone flew out the window and fell into the spa - I'd call that an emergency!

A lot of fun. Even when I thought about the meta message being delivered in the subtext of the cruise ship.
