TV Announcer: "NASA says that there could be real scientific value in Baumgartner's jump..."
Me: "Oh, shut up, NASA! Go play with your robots. You didn't have millions of people watching your YouTube feed* for your last Mars mission, and you know why? Nobody gives a $#!+ about robots."
*Well, and maybe they didn't have a live YouTube feed, either. I don't know. It was just a robot** anyway.
**Yeah, yeah, I know they perform valuable scientific research, but they don't get the world sitting at the edge of their seats... or digging for their wallet. Formula One or NASCAR wouldn't have five viewers and couldn't get sponsored by anybody bigger than Greasy Joe's Dixie Bar & Grill if the cars were radio-controlled.
