Real News. Real Funny.
kmmontandon: What about chair advertisements?
bingethinker: I would contest that law. I bet the legislation is full of holes.
Hector Remarkable: Personally, I think it's a foolish world that doesn't take advantage of the wide open sky for advertising. The heavens should be littered with Pepsi ad satellites and such, for the whole world to see - blinking large and loud as moons of their own. I would love to read Burma Shave ads backgrounded by the Milky Way, and see spectacular, cosmic underwear ads in the skies at night.
brantgoose: Good. If if it isn't sacrilege, it's vandalism and creating a public eyesore.
NJR_ZA: No wonder it has been 40 years since we were last on the moon. If NASA employs people that are incapable of doing a quick back of the cigarette pack calculation to check how much energy it would take to actually project enough light to make an image visible from earth on a quarter of the near surface of the moon, then there surely is no hope of us ever going back.Then again, maybe it has been 40 years because we all stopped smoking and don't have cigarette packs handy to do those quick calculations.
