=/\= want to be an astronaut?
« on: November 15, 2011, 03:48:24 pm »
in the news today is NASA is opening up applications for the astronaut corps! while it may seem odd after the end of the shuttle program to need more astronauts, here is your chance!!! i would sooooo love to be an astronaut, but i think my only chance is to B.S. my way in claiming to want to research the effects of zero-g on arthritis patients. ;) seriously tho, i have always wondered if it would feel better with no stress on the joints? :)

anyway, read more about it here: http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2011/nov/HQ_M11-234_Astro_Applications.html?hpclick=hpticker

But, but, but our president pronounced it the other way when he gave a speech that mentioned the Corpsmen.  ;D  So I think he trumps you on it is said, corpse.  :knuppel2: :laugh:

he is completely wrong... altho the alternate pronunciation is "corpse" i think you are an idiot for saying it that way... (not you personally, just those who think that is the only way to say it or think it is the proper way)

example. it is xeno(core) not xeno(corpse)

yeah, I know he is totally wrong.  I am a Corps member myself.  (500th MI Corps, was a member when it was founded so will always be associated with it).

The true corps are already there.  Yet not many give them the glory.   
I am glad ppl think I am stupid.  I get to quit the easy way!
Its a joke or waist of public funds to make ones belive they can go to space .  1.5 million$ will get a trip, Nasa i think spends more cause they got to pay others now.
