“That’s no moon. . .”

Deathstar

But I guess it is some kind of “star.”


#7

Some would say that the Earth is our moon, but that would belittle the name of our moon, which is, “the moon”


#8

Freaking planets, how do they work?


#9

It's A Diamond


#10

Satellite

This. Very much this. Or at least some STEM subject. If she was in physics, she’d have beaned Mizrahi with a shoe. Honor would demand it!

At least Mizrahi eventually got it right: “It’s a moon. It’s a moon, right?”

I love the crew member around :50 yelling out “no!”

I wondered what it would be like if the moon really were a star, then I remembered that “on August 29th, 1997, it’s gonna feel pretty fucking real to you too. Anybody not wearing 2 million sunblock is gonna have a real bad day. Get it?”

This happened in January 2015. Not sure why it’s being presented as news.


#17

I don’t see why you thought it was “news”. While BB does have actual news, on occasion, don’t even try to pretend that’s the focus here =).


#18

The important thing here is that those shirts are ugly as fuck - lol.

“But things live on it. That means it’s a planet.”

Well, two things. There are two things wrong with it.
