Hindsight is allways 20/20. so I hear. .
you can point the finger at both contractors and government, they know whats going on ,its public money, that's endless.they play dumb when you call them out on it..I've been a part of it for years ,I've seen the waste first hand..

Just a guess ,they would be big Union contractors, as that's the only place to find the large numbers of skilled trades people to do that kind of work.all trained and ticketed.on a short or limited notice?

that would also account for cost over runs,. I've seen companies under estimate on jobs to get in the door.then its oops. oops.happens in Canada all the time..Take our Muskrat falls hydro electric development. as an example.what a shafting we are gonna get from that project. behind schedule, billions over budget.a lot of palms were greased .

we have this critter ,we call it the FATCAT! though they have gotten leaner, so they can hide easier.but they just suck up and squander resources,
The dishonest FATCATs are the worst, but even in the event of honesty, estimation is not always an easy task. I develop software and underestimate and overestimate all the time. Fortunately, I work for people who understand that software development is not necessarily easy and are tolerant when I underestimate. That said, I like to consider myself honest since I have a good reputation in my area, and if anyone ever unjustly accused me of dishonesty in my job, I would be able to move to another position with relative ease.

I think FATCAT syndrome is a symptom of a deeper problem with society. As I see it, humanity has not progressed all that much beyond feudalism. I wish I did, but I have no answers.

Ok, I'll slow down and give them a chance to catch up.
It's presumptuous to assume that those of us who have been here for years, feel any obligation to live up to your very impatient expectations. Especially when you really haven't said anything of interest or value.

Keep trying though, while I go do something else.

Hopefully you won't have internet when you get to Mars...(y)

Postmortemcards and Internet from Mars gives us communication with Zombie Martians.
And I suppose Musk would claim he's, "expanding the frontiers of science and enriching our lives", by allowing us to Facebook with the Martian living dead. :D There's no need. I think most of them have joined Techspot over the past six months.

By golly, were at post #105, without a single accusation of "click baiting", being directed @Shawn Knight ! That's likely some sort of major milestone!

Hey @cliffordcooley , have you been raiding my stash of, "pessimism pills", again?

((For those of you unaware of this exquisitely functional medicine, it's sort of like an amphetamine which never induces euphoria, and you get a brutal meth crash, within a half hour of taking it. Sure, any pill can taste bitter, but this one makes you bitter).

Besides, how many times do we have to tell you, "they're not coming home".

Which will be quite easily explained away by the fact that, "since the moon landing never happened, the Mars mission was CGI as well".

Let's say just for a moment, that have an IQ of 75 and I agree with you.

Then, let's say I have an average to above average IQ.

Then let's deal with knowns:

1: Musk is a foreign national

2: The spy satellite Space-X lost, was of classified purpose.

3: The satellite could have been tasked,(probably was, in fact), as an intelligence gathering tool..

4: The satellite could have been tasked for surveillance of countries other than the US, and other countries could have been adversed to that outcome

5: Musk will do just about anything for money.

So, as far fetched as that might sound, it makes your analogy with the Eagles sound completely insane and asinine.

That being said, the only reason athletes compete is to win. Winning brings their accomplishments to light. So at best, that results in a chicken or the egg paradox for your conclusion.
The wink emjoii means sarcasm... see how I put one in my post? because what I said was the craziest and most sarcastic thing I could think of to complement @wiyosaya 's post - which was also so utterly ridiculous that I thought opposing it would only mean falling for his trolling.

You're right about IQ of 75 though....

Your only obligation is to keep spouting bigoted nonsensical drivel. You do that well, but then given your age, not as well as some of your peers. Keep it up. It helps the young folks stay keen on what went wrong and why folks like Musk make you so unhappy.

Well, I would be trolling if Musk had not initiated a holy war to get to Mars. ;)

Go spew you crap in some other direction,. We're in no obligation to even answer your posts, let alone have a time demand attached to it.

Musk is a charlatan and a carnival barker. You don't have the wisdom or intelligence to figure that out on your own. He's a parasite making billions off of companies which perpetually lose money.

I think one of our members pointed out earlier, "there's' a lot of boot lickers in this thread".

And our mod has already politely called you out, on the quoting your own post to get a quicker answer, nonsense.

I'd like to feed my cats now. By your leave, of course. :p

Every time I take those pessimism pills, the antimanic agents come to my door. :confused:

But at least those who go to Mars will have that fecal antimicrobial goo to eat. Yum!

I can't help but picture the slime from Alien movies when thinking about that.
You watch what you say Buster. Earth poop is far superior to alien poop or slime, that's why they travel hundreds of light years to come here and try to, "apoopriate it". (Wow whee, hold your noses. If the smell of turds for dinner doesn't sicken you, the smell of my bad puns will).

Because you can grow stuff in it just about anywhere? . some of the stuff we eat is probably better ,after its been digested..

OK Kidz, for those of you that have "just tuned in", (so to speak). this thread is a constantly evolving discussion about the recent launch of the Space-X, "Falcon Heavy" rocket.

The plot twist where all the poop jokes have come into being and posted, are the result of Elon Musk being so full of it. :D

For further reading on, "processed poop, now available at fast food space stations all over the galaxy", you may follow this link:

Er, anybody wants my seat on that rocket ,its yours... MUNCH MAL ! Sil vous plait.

That's gonna be a long ride..

You betcha! :)(y)



When this guy poops, it's like the "re-tweet" of the animal kingdom.

Although the proper term for the dung beetle's flatulence is, "re-toot".
So how much poop can a Beetle re-toot ,if a Beetle can re-toot poop.?

there's a guy that don't mind a honest days work.

remarkable critter as I remember. can take a bunch of times its own weight and take off with it ,without breakin a sweat, and its defence mechanism. flips over on its back and defecates. when it feels threatened , not much will eat him ,waits until the coast is clear. flips back over and carries on..
