What time is tomorrow's launch?
We are on an 'every-other-day' launch rate, now, right?
Right?
I don't know man... I'm already getting the shakes though. I should be okay though. I can quit whenever I want.

There is a Long Methadon 5 launch in a few days to help you cope until the Intelsat 35e goes...

The next big thing.. a new party thread name for the FH launch

"He is Falcon Heavy... And he's my brother"

Too soon to begin throwing around names?

I've always thought "We like big boosters and we cannot lie" would be good for a falcon heavy party thread. I've even come up with a few lines of a lovely song by Sir Launch-a-lot called. 'Baby Got R-T-L-S'.

The "You can only like something every 120 seconds" rule is just bloody silly!! >:(

I've petitioned that the rule be lifted. For moderators only.  So far no luck...

When's the next launch? It's been two days!  I NEED a launch man, I'm not addicted I just need one more the month.  Just a little one, got any Falcon 1's left in the barn?

Sunday?

(SpaceX seems to think so. Everyone else is shaking their head and thinking they can't possibly pull off 3 launches in 9 days)

Not only is OctoCrab catchy*, but naming its hardened hangout the Crab Shack (in panel four) seals the win. ;D

*Pun not intended, but it would've been had I thought of it before typing.

I've petitioned that the rule be lifted. For moderators only.  So far no luck...

My big problem with the limit is that when you trigger it, it resets the clock.  So, if I accidentally like post #2 115 seconds after the first one, I have to wait another 2 minutes instead of just another 6 seconds to try again.  That is infuriating.

That's actually a serious complaint and is *drumroll* therefore off topic here. Try your luck in the

I posted my quip to the party thread... don't make the mods crabby by getting TOO attached to your standup jokes.

Come now Lar. Look who started this crab-fest in reply #395  ;)

Shouldn't each Octograbber have its own name.  Like "Bob" or "Sally"?
