'''[[Project Gemini]]''' was [[NASA]]’s second space program, between the Mercury and Apollo missions. With the [[Apollo Project|Apollo]] program behind schedule, NASA needed something to do between 1961 and 1966, after which everyone would be watching the soccer [[World Cup]]. The Gemini spacecraft carried two [[Astronaut|astronauts]] to different parts of the solar system and one crew into an alternative [[universe]]. The program put the [[United States]] ahead of the [[Soviet Union]] in the [[Cold War]] Space Race.

Gemini’s mission was to iron out various space-travel and personnel issues, in preparation for the goal set by [[John F. Kennedy|President Kennedy]] to land people on the moon and return them safely to [[Earth]]. Project Gemini managed to complete the first part of that goal, just leaving [[Apollo]] to figure out how to return the astronauts safely to Earth. Other minor objectives were medical experiments, navigation, rendezvous, explosive yield, docking, EVA and orbital maneuvering techniques.

The Gemini capsule was launched on top of a Titan II inter-continental ballistic missile, the first to be fired from Cape Canaveral. The first four manned launches expanded the envelope from sub orbital ICBM to orbital spacecraft. Project Gemini was also the first to use mission control in [[Houston]].

'''[[Horace Greeley]]''' (February 3, 1811 – November 29, 1872) was a [[newspaper]] man who thought he had solutions to offer the [[Politics|political system]]. He switched states and switched [[Political party|political parties]] but finally found one of both that felt right, and ran for [[U.S. President]] against [[Ulysses S. Grant]] in 1872. He lost decisively, but got the last laugh, dying before the [[Electoral College|electoral vote]] could be cast.
   
  +
Greeley was born on February 3, 1811 in Amherst, [[New Hampshire]]. He could not breathe for the first 20 minutes of his life, and some say this is the cause for everything that followed. To this day, newspaper men say we could control [[carbon]] emissions and solve [[global warming]] if all the [[God]]-damned [[environmentalist]]s would also just refrain from breathing for about 20 minutes.

Greeley's parents, Zaccheus and Mary (Woodburn) Greeley, moved house repeatedly during Greeley's youth, without even the lame excuse of [[Army]] service. Neighbors thought Greeley was [[smart]] and offered to pay his way through '''Phillips Exeter Academy''', but the Greeleys were [[Pride|proud]], and replied, "No, thank you, we will just stay [[poor]] and [[Ignorance|ignorant]]." However, in 1820, the Greeleys moved to Vermont, as it was a few miles ahead of the creditors in pursuit. This was Greeley's breakthrough, as he became the 15-year-old apprentice of the [[printer]] of a newspaper called the ''Northern Spectator.''

After only four years, it became painfully clear that no one wanted to spectate at the north of East Poultney, [[Vermont]]; nor north from Poultney, toward the [[ignorance]] of Blissville.

In 1831, Greeley went to [[New York City]] to seek his fortune. Unfortunately, he found that it was safely in the hands of other people. He found work at newspapers no one has ever heard of, including the ''New York Morning Post'' and ''The New-Yorker.'' Greeley met his wife, Mary Young Cheney, at a boarding house that rejected meat, alcohol, coffee, tea, spices, and intoxicants, leaving only [[Sex|hanky-panky]] as a diversion. Their [[marriage]] was [[sandwich]]ed into Greeley's newspapers in the middle of the winning numbers in the [[lottery]], though their honeymoon was sandwiched into the work week, and consummated at the sandwich break.

'''([[Horace Greeley|more]]...)'''
A '''[[faggot]]''' is a woodwind instrument in the double reed [[family]], used to play [[music]] written in the [[bass]] and tenor registers and occasionally even higher, apart from when they have those really annoying squeaky put-on voices sometimes that just put my [[teeth]] on edge.
 
   
I'm as [[liberal]] as the next person, but it just doesn't seem [[natural]] to choose to be a faggot player. Because it ''is'' a choice, and don't let them tell you any different - they could have picked up any instrument in that music shop, but what did they choose? Not a [[drum]] kit or something manly like a [[trumpet]], that's for sure.

Due to the complicated [[finger]]ing and the problem of reeds, the faggot is one of the more difficult instruments to learn; schoolchildren typically take up the faggot only after starting on another easier instrument. Which means they're perfectly [[happy]] when they're kids, and then suddenly they get lured off into ''that'' life. I mean what more proof do you need? '''([[Faggot|more]]...)'''

'''[[Ted Cruz]]''' (born Rafael Edward Cruz) is the junior United States Senator from [[Texas]]. Elected in 2012 as a [[Republican]], he is the first Hispanic or Cuban American to serve as a U.S. Senator from Texas. The term ''serve'' is used loosely, because he is running for President of the [[United States]], and while running for President, he has very little time to fulfill his duties as a US Senator. Several analysts are concerned about his hopes in the current Presidential election because he does not actually qualify to be President in as much as he was born outside the United States as a Cuban Canadian, and the Constitution mandates that the President must be born within the US as a natural born citizen, but because that didn't stop [[President Obama]], Cruz believes it will not be an issue for him either.

Christened Rafael Edward Cruz, he was born to Eleanor Elizabeth Darragh Wilson, and Rafael Bienvendo Cruz in [[Toronto]], [[Canada]] on December 22, 1970. At the time Ted was born, his father worked in the oil industry in Canada. Rafael Cruz Sr. owned a company that processed seismic data for oil drillers and he was very gifted at processing the data until the oil drillers got the results they wanted. He had learned how to process data from his time in Cuba fighting with [[Fidel Castor|Castro's]] good ol' boys as an interpretation specialist. Any information that needed to be reinterpreted or processed went through Rafael Cruz Sr. before being sent out through official channels. Ted's Father left [[Cuba]] in 1957 to attend the University of Texas where "I got me some learnin'", as he would say on graduation in one of his humorous attempts to imitate a Texas drawl.

'''[[Einstein's Theory of Relativity]]''' as proposed in a joint paper by [[Albert Einstein]] and [[Lacan|Jacques Lacan]], states that all relatives in a family were only in their various positions in the family relative to one another in a fixed point in time or space. For instance, a father is a father to a child and he is a brother to his brother. Thus the same person is both a father and a brother, from two different points of view. This is of minimum use in [[Physics]], but Einstein had lots of [[Ph.D.]]s and qualifications to make it sound really important, so people credited him with the discovery anyway.
   
The [[French]] have also have a great claim to [[fame]] by having [[Social Commentary|overpowering unions]], which have led to slow industry and the country being in [[Economics|perpetual recession]] and ruled by [[Krypton|crypto]][[fascist|-fascist]] [[Goverment|governments]] since France's defeat in the [[World War 2|Second World War]].

While this principle was not new to Einstein's work, he found that putting a fork in the [[microwave oven]] may have seemed like fun, yet in the long run just ended up breaking the oven. The experiment was new, in its focus on placing various other objects in a microwave and seeing what happened. He found that the same power needed to spark a fork in the lab was equal to that required in a kitchen to be the same as that required to blow up a [[kitten]], or melt a hydrated rose, regardless of their rotation or the motion of the body of food, flowers or fauna.

A magazine is a collation of information, from various sources, uploaded into a computer system, twizzled, and printed onto paper, then cut, folded and bound before being chemically fixed in order for acute analytical testing and comprehensive analogue distribution to be implemented.

Some magazines are frequently used by terrorists to spread anti-East propaganda through the ‘Brown Web.’ In Europe and North America, magazines are found on newsstands. For consumers to have a broad range of magazines, the Fair Magazine Treaty (1954) requires newsstand owners to offer at least 120 different magazines at any time, of which 60% must be A++ standard pornographic.

Horace Greeley

Horace Greeley (February 3, 1811 – November 29, 1872) was a newspaper man who thought he had solutions to offer the political system. He switched states and switched political parties but finally found one of both that felt right, and ran for U.S. President against Ulysses S. Grant in 1872. He lost decisively, but got the last laugh, dying before the electoral vote could be cast.

Greeley was born on February 3, 1811 in Amherst, New Hampshire. He could not breathe for the first 20 minutes of his life, and some say this is the cause for everything that followed. To this day, newspaper men say we could control carbon emissions and solve global warming if all the God-damned environmentalists would also just refrain from breathing for about 20 minutes.

Greeley's parents, Zaccheus and Mary (Woodburn) Greeley, moved house repeatedly during Greeley's youth, without even the lame excuse of Army service. Neighbors thought Greeley was smart and offered to pay his way through Phillips Exeter Academy, but the Greeleys were proud, and replied, "No, thank you, we will just stay poor and ignorant." However, in 1820, the Greeleys moved to Vermont, as it was a few miles ahead of the creditors in pursuit. This was Greeley's breakthrough, as he became the 15-year-old apprentice of the printer of a newspaper called the Northern Spectator.

After only four years, it became painfully clear that no one wanted to spectate at the north of East Poultney, Vermont; nor north from Poultney, toward the ignorance of Blissville. The newspaper went into oblivion, and Greeley went into Pennsylvania, eventually finding work at the Erie Gazette.

Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz (born Rafael Edward Cruz) is the junior United States Senator from Texas. Elected in 2012 as a Republican, he is the first Hispanic or Cuban American to serve as a U.S. Senator from Texas. The term serve is used loosely, because he is running for President of the United States, and while running for President, he has very little time to fulfill his duties as a US Senator. Several analysts are concerned about his hopes in the current Presidential election because he does not actually qualify to be President in as much as he was born outside the United States as a Cuban Canadian, and the Constitution mandates that the President must be born within the US as a natural born citizen, but because that didn't stop President Obama, Cruz believes it will not be an issue for him either.

Christened Rafael Edward Cruz, he was born to Eleanor Elizabeth Darragh Wilson, and Rafael Bienvendo Cruz in Toronto, Canada on December 22, 1970. At the time Ted was born, his father worked in the oil industry in Canada. Rafael Cruz Sr. owned a company that processed seismic data for oil drillers and he was very gifted at processing the data until the oil drillers got the results they wanted. He had learned how to process data from his time in Cuba fighting with Castro's good ol' boys as an interpretation specialist. Any information that needed to be reinterpreted or processed went through Rafael Cruz Sr. before being sent out through official channels. Ted's Father left Cuba in 1957 to attend the University of Texas where "I got me some learnin'", as he would say on graduation in one of his humorous attempts to imitate a Texas drawl.

Cruz's mother, Eleanor Wilson Cruz, was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, of Irish and Italian descent, and she has the typical temperament of someone with that heritage, or at least the temperament of an average mother. (more...)

Einstein

Einstein's Theory of Relativity as proposed in a joint paper by Albert Einstein and Jacques Lacan, states that all relatives in a family were only in their various positions in the family relative to one another in a fixed point in time or space. For instance, a father is a father to a child and he is a brother to his brother. Thus the same person is both a father and a brother, from two different points of view. This is of minimum use in Physics, but Einstein had lots of Ph.D.s and qualifications to make it sound really important, so people credited him with the discovery anyway.

As such, it was one of the most important inventions in history, paving the way for the temporal paradox, the engine which powers the Time machine used by Professor Marty McFly in his famous time travel documentary Forward to the Past.

Albert Einstein's 1905 rant On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies introduced the wild guess of relativity. Einstein's marketing agent suggested there may be some difficulty marketing a "wild guess," and in a brilliant marketing gambit, it was recast as a "Theory" or a "Principle."

While this principle was not new to Einstein's work, he found that putting a fork in the microwave oven may have seemed like fun, yet in the long run just ended up breaking the oven. The experiment was new, in its focus on placing various other objects in a microwave and seeing what happened. He found that the same power needed to spark a fork in the lab was equal to that required in a kitchen to be the same as that required to blow up a kitten, or melt a hydrated rose, regardless of their rotation or the motion of the body of food, flowers or fauna. Raindrops on roses and radiation on kittens were just a few of his favorite things. (more...)
