Congratulations to Anousheh Ansari, on her recent vacation to the ISS.
There, now that i’ve got that out of the way, I’ve got a message for all you Anousheh-is-the-second-coming-of-Xena freaks out there.
She went on a (very expensive) VACATION to an extreme destination.
This isn’t HISTORIC.
It WON’T get you to space.
She’s RICH, you AREN’T.
She isn’t the first person to BLOG.*
While we all here at the Space Cynics are certainly envious of her rarely-experienced vacation, and would love the chance to go (so any of you wanting to donate $80m – so we can all go – to the Cynics… make your checks out to Cash, or just paypal us.) we aren’t buying this drivelish worship fest that seems to have infected you.
Go take a cold shower and get a life.
(*note, in case you missed it, the Space Cynics is a blog too. Duh.)
