A DOC Nyland Editorial ...


The following is an editorial from the very bored (because he's STILL not working) DOC ...

Hey Chaz,

I think it is time for me to stop being a negative nabob and throw my support behind our president. I commend his latest move to change NASA’s priority from space exploration to connecting with the Muslim world. Our president, Mr. Obama says NASA should recognize all of the Muslim world’s accomplishments in the scientific world. I applaud that. There must be bunches of accomplishments. Right off the bat I think of Arabic numbers. Well, actually, that was a Hindu invention that the Muslims stole, but let’s not split hairs. Then there are gyros, falafel, hummus, suicide vests, and Turkish taffy.

In the grand scheme of things it is an ideal blend of the 12th and the 21st century. That averages out to roughly the 17th century. Can you envision the space shuttle with whale oil docking lights? This is definitely a goal to strive for.

Now on a practical note, you and I know there are titillating tootsies flashing their bare ankles, willy-nilly all over the country. With the old Muslim technology, you have to work up a crowd, gather the stones, throw rock after rock after rock… obviously an extremely time consuming venture for a busy zealot. When we meld our technology with the Muslim world it will go like this.

Spot the brazen hussy.

Enter GPS coordinates.

Hit the “harlot” button on your iphone.


One laser-guided rock at 35,000 feet per second… from space.

Stoning accomplished… and you still have the rest of the day free for honor killings.


I feel so much better now that I’ve seen the wisdom of President Obama’s decision. The next priority is to design pressurized burkhas for female astronauts. Only kidding! No way the Taliban will allow us have female astronauts.

Have a good week
