Fallen Hero

Thanks to rahirah, I've something to post

Thank you!

For those totally new to my page, and there seems to be many due to the Spike, A Dark Place reviewage - I am crazy for polls/questionnaires. I don't know what it is. And we have a Star Trek one. Yay!

So I went on over and visited this here ONE to determine just how much of a Red Shirt that I am. It turns out... a huge one.

I'm trying to pretend to be shocked, here.

What I am shocked about is just how much Picard I've got. That's pretty awesome, so I guess I won't go picking up strange creatures... or eat an alien fruit off the ground that I've never seen before... or falling into the space-babe's (male version) arms without a thought in my empty head... I mean there are some brain cells working, apparently. Maybe, just maybe, I'll last a few episodes as a back grounder before I stand next to those reliably explosive panels during a battle or get picked off for wandering away at just the wrong moment. Maybe.

I guess my only real consolation is that to Life, we're all really just redshirts wandering around, aren't we?

Since your accomplishments are seldom noticed,
and you are rarely thought of, you are expendable.
That doesn't mean your job isn't important but if you
were in Star Trek you would be killed off in the first
episode you appeared in.

As to Barb's observation, "This explains so much", all I can say is Preach It, Sister... Right There With You.

*sigh* Pretty, but still....

"A missile launch seen from space: an unexpected surprise!" Parmitano wrote in a post on Oct. 11. One of the Italian astronaut's photos shows a curving contrail left in the missile's wake and another features a wispy cloud formed in space after the missile disintegrated.

So, what is causing this?

"According to a representative of the Rocket Forces, the test was used to confirm characteristics of the Topol missile, to test the systems of the Sary Shagan test site, and 'to test new combat payload for intercontinental ballistic missiles,'" RussianForces.org wrote on Oct. 10.


Because that is exactly what the world absolutely must have more of... intercontinental ballistic missiles.
