    What's the deal with being anal retentive?
    How much you like bet you wouldn't disrespect a poster like Tutusue by lecturing?

    They say that the shot was good, so there's nothing to worry about.
    Bits and pieces should burn up during re-entry and not strike ground/water.

    Hope so!
    Well, if one piece makes through atmospheric re-entry intact, one hope it would land on a certain fugly cleric somewhere in Iraq.

    Yeah, I like taking apart your joke.

    BTW, I'm reminded of a segment from 30 Rock where the lady (not Tina Fey) mentioned that she like "Osama" (as in Barack Osama).

    Who'd be a fool in Hawaii NOT to vote for him?

    *glances at "superdelegate" Daniel Inouye*

    ON-TOPIC...

    Is it true they used a heat-seeking missile to shoot down the SPY(!!!) satellite?

    Did you noticed that all the news mentioned it as a "SPY(!!!) satellite"? I'm like, "Sheesh! We heard it the first time!"

    From Reuters:

    A missile from a U.S. Navy warship hit a defunct U.S. spy satellite 133 nautical miles above the Earth in an attempt to blow apart its tank of toxic fuel, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.

    It was too soon to tell if the fuel tank had been shattered in the operation over the Pacific Ocean, the Pentagon said in a statement, but a senior military source said initial indications suggested that goal had been achieved.

    Which part of Barack's name is Muslim? I thought both of his names (first and last) are rooted in Africa.
    There are a lot of references and counter arguments to his having muslim roots, none of which I can verify or choose to dispute. My creativity was imagining a bunch of white men in the pentagon deciding the best day to shoot down a satellite and possibly having two very well qualified presidential candidates of the Democratic Party battling nearby, in Hawaii. Jokes suck when they get over analyzed, dontchathink? Gee, and I voted for him last night.

    One hopes it would land on the head of a annoyingly loud Shiite cleric in Iraq, and burn up the rest of his army.

    Re: shooting down satellites

    I think you guys read the announcement wrong - it's not the hydrazine itself that's the hazard, it's the large mass of the hydrazine tank [which may reach the earth's surface] that can pose the risk (as well as the combustion possibility).
