Space Pong. That sounds like fun. I wonder which kind of satellite has more bounce, American, Russian or Chinese. Lol, space pong looks like so much fun. But it's only a matter of time before Russia and the US run out of military and spy satelittes to whack. Then there goes all satelitte TV. Good thing I have cable.

You know what beats sattelites? Rocks.
Shoot a rocket full of rocks into orbit on the same plane as your enemies space based system, and sit back with a beer for the fireworks.
Multi-Billion dollar space hardware simply can't stand up to rocks. It's beautifully ironic isn't it?
Seriously, all this space hardware is a waste of money. Why spend billions on something that can be defeated by solar storms, dust clouds, and ROCKS?!
They should be building dome homes with that money, not playing silly buggers in the upper aptmosphere.

I mean think about it, hundreds of millions of dollars are spent on these things and they are so fragile. When one gets fried or quits working it is just dismissed as a failure and we just build another. Good post but one thing though, why domed homes?
