So we go to the launch site (in the next little town where I grew up) on the soccer field there were 7 little buses with rocket engines lined up. Actually we rode bikes there like out of the Goonies movie And with the same amount of enthusiasm too.
Anyways, we got into this short bus and waited for take-off, our bus was the last to take off but there was some delay and I started getting all logical. I was like "hey wait a minute, we don't have any heat shields on this here bus, we don't have space suits or anything...will this we available to us when we get there? Who's paying for this anyway?!"
Got my ass and JR off the short bus before it took off.
