In other news, all the MRAPs are being recalled for installation of an undisclosed new feature.
Yeah, I think I read about those in history class.
many of the people that work in these calls centers believe they are working valid jobs to some degree or another
The part about the CLSID trick would seem to belie that...
Yes, because men need a pair of tits flashed in their faces before they'll do anything interesting.
Dunno about you, but it usually causes me to do something stupid.
You also get dentists telling people that teeth need brushing and flossing in order to be healthy; despite the fact that for millennia brushing wasn't the norm.
...nor was keeping your teeth into your eighties -- if you lived that long.
that the three have other plans for their careers.

Indeed. The first engineer figured out that the soup would taste better if the latrine were downstream...science came later.
It became too much blow shit up
...and their adolescent orgasmic reactions to explosions get old after a while.
OK, I know when I'm outclassed...

Let's face it, the Onion is a well known satyrical news site
Can't people just tell by the goat horns?
and much more that I don't even know anything about
...including the problems of scale in aircraft design.
You may be expecting too much. Most meteors go by too fast to see motion, because they're close: you just see a faint white line that appears and persists for less than a second. You see these mostly overhead.
If a meteor does show motion, that means it's far away (hence low rate of movement through your FOV), and bright enough to be seen through many miles of atmosphere (hence considerably bigger than average). You see these near the horizon.
If one moves slowly enough that you can say "Hey, look at that" and other people can turn and catch sight of it, it's a BIG mutha.
Ordinarily I'd say an entertainment franchise has a right to charge as much as it damn well pleases for a ticket, and license it to broadcasters at its pleasure...but football teams tend to get subsidies from the local governments, in the form of tax breaks and such. In that context, I don't see much wrong with the fans being treated as partners in the deal. Perhaps a withdrawal of some of the perks would be in order.
