I don't believe that anybody actually believes all that claptrap about Xenu..

It's no more or less believable than any other religion. Do you think people really believe that a dead guy came back to life? How about an entire ocean was suddenly parted so the good guys could get away and then collapsed again on the bad guys? Or that the earth is 6000 years old? Or that the guy who created the entire universe 12 billion years ago and billions of light years large is really really concerned about if human penises wind up in human vaginas before the correct ritual is performed?

So yes, I really do think some people believe in the Xenu thing. Especially since they don't really tell you about the Xenu thing until you're really into it.

Really? what algorithms did we develop for landing on either a platform or land that deals with say 100 MPH winds, and dealing with 1G? And if developed in the 50's, then why did the lunar landings not use them? Likewise, why bother with having these competition here on earth for landing? Seems to me that the simple physics equations for dealing with gravity, are well known, but controlling a lander while dealing with wind, rain, storms, etc is quite a different thing. And yes, landing on the moon is VERY easy. BUT, landing on mars, earth, venus, or any planet or moon will be difficult due to side issues, and dealing with it.

Around the time I was going through college, there was an article about scurvy making a comeback because a lot of college students ate Ramen noodles and nothing else. Turns out there's no vitamin C in Ramen.

I used to joke that you had to supplement your Ramen with pop tarts but I checked the nutrition information on those recently and they also have 0% of your RDA of vitamin C. So, I guess you're down to foraging for rose hips or something. And if you're lucky maybe you can kill a squirrel with one of your textbooks...

Google deserves all of its fame. They delivered a supperior product

And that is exactly why I always turn to Google for my supper needs. Nobody does supper better than Google, they really make the supperiest product which makes my mouth water with anticipation every time.

considering that fuel is less than 1/4 of a million $, if they can land the first stage, either on land or an old oil rig, AND can get 10 launches from it, they will save 1/3 of their costs. And that is just for the first stage.

Knowing SpaceX, they will cut their price by at least 1/6, so that they pick up just about everything flying, and make increased profits to put into more R&D.
