Moist Moon Still Waiting For Ultimate Payback

Seriously, let's fuck some lunar shit UPHey, remember when we bombed the fuck out of the moon? And how hugely unsatisfying it was? Turns out that fucker has water on it after all!

The confirmation of scientists' suspicions is welcome news both to future explorers who might set up home on the lunar surface and to scientists who hope that the water, in the form of ice accumulated over billions of years, could hold a record of the solar system's history.

The satellite, known as Lcross (pronounced L-cross), slammed into a crater near the Moon's south pole a month ago. The impact carved out a hole 60- to 100-feet wide and kicked up at least 24 gallons of water.

"We got more than just whiff," said Peter H. Schultz, a professor of geological sciences at Brown University and a co-investigator of the mission. "We practically tasted it with the impact."

Great, we tasted it, it's wet, whatever. Now can we really fuck it up? Let's melt that shit down or something. I HATE the fucking moon.

Heh, we made the moon wet. She likes it rough.

I for one am hugely relieved that if the urge for a Cup-a-soup or scrumptious Nestle's hot chocolate strikes me on the moon, there is abundant water to boil.

Of course there's liquid up there. A bunch of guys were walking around in it. Men pee EVERYwhere.

Yuck.

24 gallons is like one shower. Anyone bring a towel?

What if there's only water in the one part of the moon that NASA exploded? What then, NASA smart guys?

Good, because the plebs have started drinking Fiji water.

Can we also sit next to each other in the limo?

garge (#736)

Absolutely. I hope you like CAMPARI–

Better job market up there too, I'm told.

Kottke's right. Bottled moon water is going to put Fiji right out of business.
