He was alright, but a bit confused. I just had to keep throwing a ball and a stick for him like he was a dog!

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:23 PM

Haha! I'm sure he enjoyed it!

Eeep brain shock!
That was weird!

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:34 PM

Eep. o.o

Everything ok?

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:40 PM

Yeah I'm fine!
Just been a bit speedy and not sleeping much for the last few days and I think it's getting to my brain!

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:48 PM

Ah good. Lack of sleep does catch up eventually.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 03:50 PM

It does indeed!
I'm limiting my caffeine intake but it doesn't seem to be helping much!

nonperson 02-08-2020 03:54 PM

What about your general water intake? That seems to affect everything if you don't drink enough.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:00 PM

I don't drink water lol
It makes me feel sick and it tastes weird!
So it's either coffee, tea, caffeine free diet coke or squash!

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:07 PM

Squash counts as water. =P

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:17 PM

Yay!!! :-D
In that case I do drink water :p

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:21 PM

Haha! But do you drink ENOUGH water? That's what I'm getting at, considering it's bloody boiling lately and you're not feeling 100%.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:27 PM

Probably not!
But I do drink enough coke :p

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 04:42 PM

I drink lots of lemonade as I don't like water either.

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:47 PM

More than enough coke, I think, Beckie. ;-)

I drink water at home and squash at work.

Fizzy drinks are too fizzy for me.

I weirdly like the taste of water... it's all pure and clean and light and nothing.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:49 PM

Definitely more than enough!! :tongue2:

Water just tastes like your mouth

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:50 PM

It's not so much the taste, it's more the feeling of it. I can't describe it. =/

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 04:51 PM

I can kind of get what you mean!
Kind of!

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 04:51 PM

Water tastes too plain for my liking.

nonperson 02-08-2020 04:55 PM

I like plain.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:06 PM

I can cope with flavoured water!
And sparkling water!
Maybe I'm just weird

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:07 PM

Sparkling water tastes weird! But I like it.

We're all weird. =)

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:12 PM

That is very true! :tongue2:

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:21 PM

Is anyone watching the return of the Nasa/SpaceX astronauts later?

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:21 PM

Nope! What time is it on?

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:37 PM

Nasa TV on Youtube is on all the time. I think touchdown is about 7:30pm this evening.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:38 PM

I can't get YouTube on the TV at the moment because my fire stick has broken :(
But I could watch it on my phone!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:40 PM

That's annoying. I think it's only live on youtube unfortunately.

Should be exciting to watch though.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:48 PM

That's a shame

I accidentally crashed the spacecraft upon landing when doing the space simulator at space camp!
I messed up the sequence for the landing thing
In my defence, there were a hell of a lot of buttons!!!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:50 PM

Good job you're not in control now then, hmm? =P

There was a SpaceX docking simulator online when they launched. I don't think I ended up anywhere near the space station when I tried it! And then I lost patience.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 05:53 PM

It's a very good job!
this simulator was the one that real astronauts use
! It was very exciting!

Haha! Fair enough!

nonperson 02-08-2020 05:55 PM

I think this one had the same controls that the astronauts use too. Very disappointed that I failed. =/

I'm still so jealous of your space camp!

nonperson 02-08-2020 06:00 PM

Here you go:


Cacoethes 02-08-2020 06:02 PM

We also did the next day where the teams switched over and I was in ground control. I didn't mess that one up :p

Yay thank you!

nonperson 02-08-2020 06:09 PM

Ground control sounds fun. =P

I just failed! Got much closer than I did before though.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 06:12 PM

It was! Got the headset and everything! Not as fun as crashing a spacecraft though :tongue2:

I failed. Got so close a few times but then it all got out of control!

nonperson 02-08-2020 06:14 PM

Hah, yeah crashing is more fun. =P

I think I did the same. Was doing alright and then decided to make some minor corrections which turned into major mistakes.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 06:20 PM

It is! :tongue2:

I just ended up spinning around! Lol!

nonperson 02-08-2020 06:27 PM

Who said the ISS had to be the destination, hmm? XD

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 06:27 PM

Surely random space is just as good!!!

nonperson 02-08-2020 06:30 PM

Yep, I thought the whole mission statement was based on exploring the unknown. =)

Or maybe I'm thinking of Star Trek...

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 06:35 PM

Star trek, real life, who even knows anymore.
This is 2020, anything could happen!!!

nonperson 02-08-2020 07:49 PM

You are not wrong there.

I wish there was more Star Trek stuff happening instead of Armageddon stuff. =/

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 08:02 PM

I never got into star trek but you are right! Anything better than this sh*t going on right now!

nonperson 02-08-2020 08:08 PM

Yup. =/

I mean there's a lot of death and disaster and near misses in Star Trek but at least it's exciting and diverse and unpredictable and a bigger picture than most people can imagine.

Cacoethes 02-08-2020 08:10 PM

Could always do with a bit more excitement and diversity in the world!!!

nonperson 02-08-2020 08:16 PM

Completely agree.

It's silly really, isn't it, that aliens and stuff in a fictional show are perfectly acceptable but different races/skin colours IRL aren't ok. Gah! That's a debate for a different thread I think!

not_so_insig 02-08-2020 08:16 PM

I much prefer classic Doctor Who to star trek.

nonperson 02-08-2020 08:21 PM

When talking about the Human race vs general sci-fi, Star Trek, Doctor Who (classic or new) and Star Wars... it's all the same really.

nonperson 02-08-2020 08:23 PM

AND classic Doctor Who and original Star Trek started at pretty much the same time. There's not much in it in terms of imagination and thinking beyond the possibilities of current reality.

I know! It's crazy!
