Utah helicopter crew discovers mysterious metal monolith deep in the desert

Did this post remind people that we have a “Space Force”? 🤣 Wait until the General finds out the Space Force is an Ivanka Interior Decorating Scam & he’s in charge of bath accessories. Let’s just hope Mars won’t invade us in the next few days. Oh no Covid is in space!!! He must be wearing a red shirt. Oh no, what will they do... actually what do they do? 🤔

Spock? Oh no. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 28 trillion in debt and very real problems here on earth. Something tells me this is another was for the trumpets to fleece America. Well whadda ya know? Oh no however will we defend ourselves. 😂 Wait, that’s not SteveCarell , right? There’s Covid in space too?!? 😂🙄 Hope Col. Thompson has a speedy recovery.

Thankfully, Space Force's No. 1 officer and the rest of the Space Force team are at-the-ready! MelyeeC When Trump is president, what officer comes after No. 2? Don’t we really have to ask this question in Trump’s 1984 rip-off failed reality presidency. Surely the first five bankruptcies reveal numbers are not his friend.

Is Biden going to keep space force or just consolidate it with, oh, I don’t know, the Air Force? Thompson is simply an officer given a task that ultimately came from his Commander in Chief (even if his CiC is a wanker). Disparaging him or his health is pretty gauche. He can't be blamed for his position at the moment any more than he can be for Covid. Best wishes to him.

That may slow down training exercises Is this how the andromeda strain starts? Almost forgot we have a fucking Space Force. amandap726 Like they do anything. Since he have more chance to win the loto than dieing from this shit how is this news? 🤷🏻‍♂️ Send him to the moon base. “Despite one of the service’s top officers being sidelined with the virus, the Space Force “remains operationally ready to answer the nation’s call,” the release said.” And how exactly are they ready to answer the nations call?

How can you bash something you don’t acknowledge? I forgot we had a space force. Wait until after January 20 when he’s out of a job.

David Bowie Goes From 'Space Oddity' to International Icon in New 'Stardust' TrailerA new trailer for the Gabriel Range-directed Bowie biopic Stardust dropped on Wednesday (Oct. 28) featuring Johnny Flynn as a younger version of the late star. Jesus the music in the trailer alone is a massive misjudgement. Awful. Hideous If the soundtrack isn't original Bowie music, I'm not going to watch it. What's the point, mate? Anyways, the dude doesn't even resemble Bowie. There are many fans such as myself who are very particular about these things. If you don't hit it spot on, it's not gonna fly.
