I'll take 2 please.
I thought donation meant for Free.
Telephone call from NASA to Smithsonian Museum
NASA: Hi, we'd like to donate this shuttle orbiter to your museum
Museum: Cool, thank you very much.
NASA: If you could just pay the donation fee by Paypal for 42.8 million dollars as soon as possible that would be great.
Museum: errr, how much?
NASA: 42.8 million dollars, that includes delivery, if you can let us have your shipping addess for DHL?
In the UK would this be a large letter or a packet?
Doesn't matter, it probably won't make it on time for the holidays anyway.
Damn I really wanted it for Christmas too. A space shuttle would be ok for a 4 year old wouldn't it?
I'll be generous and swap an iBook for it.
Meh, I'll be the loser, the iBook has more computing power anyways, but I believe in supporting the noble and thong-stirring work NASA does.
Perhaps they should sell it on ebay.
Under what circumstances would a museum even begin to recover the $42,000,000 they would "invest" on this?
The Smithsonian Institution, for example, is funded by the government, and was founded to "increase and diffuse knowledge." It doesn't exist to make money.
Careful, this sounds like a scam. Especially if they ask you to send the money by wire transfer!
Just you wait, you'll call up NASA, and they'll tell you they're all currently vacationing in the UK, but if you'll just go ahead and wire the money to the science agency in Nigeria...
I'll take a shuttle seat thank you.
This is bringing me back to my week at Space Camp. That was a fun time.
Didn't the russians or someone sell a Buran on eBay? Google won't tell me, but I recall seeing a massive but outdated piece of hardware go on eBay.
Do they take credit cards?
If I had a trillion or so dollars... I'd buy it.
They should sell it to the Chinese! maybe we can get a few dollars out of those trillions we are sending their way.
I used to have a crush on Lea Thompson from that movie.
How much for gift wrapping or is that included?
eerrrr, forget delivery, I'll pick it up
Does it come with lube?
I dunno, you can't just pick up ammonium perchlorate at the local filling station, let alone liquid hydrogen. Maybe lox though, if it's a busy 7/11.
Does the $42m come with a 3-year NASA-Care warranty?
Now that would be cool.
Somehow I knew that Nigeria would enter the equation. LOL.
I think they are standing by for your order now ... while quantities are limited ... get yours now!
Imagine the Air Miles.
