That's called phlegm, John. Another whiskey should disinfect it though.

"This gives me a lump in my throat."

That's called virtue signaling, John. But the whiskey will help with that, too.

That's called having Apple's cock in your throat, John.

Exactly. When the Orangsicle talks about MAGA, does he really have any idea?

Thrusters working after 37 years in space, and billions of miles away...this is an example of what I feel is important; that American ingenuity coupled with passion & thirst for discovery.

My dad worked on the original voyager project. This Inspired me to go into physics. Quite a few of us during 60s/70s caught that fever.

The amazing thing isn't that the thrusters worked, although that's great.

The amazing thing is that Voyager was able to receive and decode the signal, a signal that was smeared both in time and space.

That's fucking great engineering.

Orangsicle probably doesn't, but neither do progressives.

This progressive is wearing a NASA shirt today, and cheered when I read the news.
