"The SLS head engineer plans to invite Shania Twain to stand under the completed prototype, then tell her, 'I don't expect you to date me just because I'm a rocket scientist, but you've gotta admit--this is pretty fucking impressive.'"
Turns out that stereotypical German efficiency is actually Nazi efficiency. Also, interesting comment on how US engineers < German engineers in early-to-mid C.20
I don't usually comment, praise, etc. on Randy's artwork as, well, it's goddamn stick figures, but I sorta dig the Saturn V in this one (the whooshy flamey fiery part). 'Tis a neat effect, if only miniscule. Then again, the Saturn V was the first thing I ever drew as a child that looked even remotely like the subject it was supposed to be (my fridge swiftly became covered in various Soviet and US rocket ships, which eventually usurped my sisters hybrid purple bunny/cat things that were the same size as the squarish trees they stood next to)
I think the alt-text is a bit convoluted, don't you? The song is about fifteen years old, and the jokes about Shania Twain actually being impressed much are, equally, fifteen years old.
