Voyager 1 is back in operation.  The Energizer bunny has nothing on Voyager.

They just don't make them like they used to!
The pen is truly mightier than the sword.  And considerably easier to write with.

Do you think that Voyager 1 would still be running if it had been made in China??  ::)
The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!

With the technology they had in 1977?  Of course not.  It wouldn't have made it to orbit let alone where it is.

Panzergranate was referring to the Chinese lack of concern about customer satisfaction and their penchant for corruption, leading to "tofu dregs construction."  We still experience poorly manufactured crap in our stores.  We know they do some things right, like the 3 Gorges Dam.  If it were made like an ordinary infrastructure project, it would have killed millions of people, by now.  As it is product of hubris, to begin with, the dam is damned to collapse, before its time.
