SpaceX test-launched the world’s largest rocket, Starship, yesterday. The rocket company defined success ahead of this test as getting off the launchpad, which the rocket did. Four minutes later it . . . well, here’s a snapshot:
SpaceX called it a “rapid unscheduled disassembly.”
I know an invitation when I see one.
Twitter wasn’t satisfied with “rapid unscheduled disassembly.”
Exponentially enhanced pluralization event.
Spontaneous premium pyrotechnical exhibition.
Aerial unmanufacturing demo.
Public occurrence of synthesis reversal.
Ification. (The opposite of unification.)
Where does Starship spend its vacation? All over Florida!
This rocket is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet it’s maker! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn’t launched it up in the air, it’d be pushing up the daisies! Its chemical processes are now history! It’s off the gantry! It’s kicked the bucket, shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!! . . . This is an ex-Starship.
Sorry. Your turn . . .
