Watching The Interception Of An Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Is Pretty Cool, I Guess.

If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe. Woop. The sky is pretty big. Some say that the sky is the biggest thing on Earth. Now, I don’t have a degree in science or the sky so I don’t wanna claim that as absolute truth. I’ll let that linger in your brain for you to ponder about. I just know that taking out a rocket that’s traveling faster than the speed of sound with another rocket that’s traveling faster than the speed of sounds seems tough.

I don’t know how you would begin to design a rocket like this. It’s literally rocket science. Rocket engineering? Hard to say but it seems pretty difficult. I mean, I still really don’t understand how activated yeast makes bread rise so I’m not gonna try to understand this. (I do understand the part about cold water versus warm water so I don’t wanna get into that. Trust me. I know) I’m just gonna be glad that I live in the intercepting country rather than the intercepted country.

Last night I was watching the show Genius hosted by long time stoolie Stephen Hawking. He was trying to explain the space-time continuum and how the Earth is 4-d or some shit. I dunno. It was hard to follow because I just keep thinking that it’s strange that they don’t give his computer an English accent. Sad.

Any way, the 4-d space-time continuum is all I could think about when watching this intercept. Some smarty pants used math to possibly save the world while some other smarty pants tried to use math to end it.
