Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
“I’m going to punch you in the ovaries.”
“I”ll hit you so hard, I’ll kill your whole family.”
“Whatever you’re reaching for better be a sandwich, because you’re going to have to eat it.”
Oh, Hollywood, you’ve given us so many ways to threaten those who dare get in between us and what we want: be it money, power or, in Harrison Ford’s case, his family back.
It’s kind of amazing no one has thought to make this mashup before, compiling every great threat some pasty screenwriter who’d never have the cojones to say to someone’s face has put in a movie.
(Caution: Very NSFW language. Earmuffs!)
The next time someone pisses me off, I’m going to threaten to butter his or her necktie just like in “Harvey.” And if that doesn’t work, I’ll just go ahead and start in on that whole “kill your whole family” routine.” Or maybe the patented Mad Libs threat of “I will put my ____ so far up/in/through your ____, you’ll be able to ______ ______ through your _______.”
For a full list of the movies references in the film, go here. What’s your favorite movie threat? Did it not make the list? Put it in the comments. (Unless it’s anything from “Pulp Fiction” or “Full Metal Jacket.” We know you love those films and have them memorized, no one is doubting you).
NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins
On December 28, 2013, Expedition 38 crew member Mike Hopkins participating in the second of two space walks to replace a degraded pump module on the International Space Station. (NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio is reflected in his helmet!)
The Soyuz TMA-10M
The Soyuz TMA-10M headed towards the International Space Station with crew members from Expedition 37 onboard.
40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
A pair of NanoRacks CubeSats -- nanosattelite spacecrafts carrying experiments -- were launched by Expedition 38.
