CmdrTaco at Kennedy Space Center

squidguy Re:I call bullshit (105 comments)

What he's really going to do is tweet his experience building and launching the gay space exploration ship in some version of Civilization. The shuttle and Cape hype is all a deception!

Among the Costs of War: $20B In Air Conditioning

squidguy Re:Cooling canvas tents? (409 comments)

There are a couple different types of tent in use over in the sandbox - the majority are canvas shells with some sort of tyvek-like inner shell...and ductwork for A/C. Some of these have been foam covered. There are also shelters which are more heavily insulated sans foam. A lot of the troops are living in containers or wooden structures, some in local buildings. The Hajjis typically sleep on the roofs, since it is the coolest place at night.

squidguy Re:Necessary (409 comments)
