    Wait – is he yeeting them INTO space, or OUT OF space?

    (I totally blame today’s Kurzgesagt video for this question…)

    “I’m sorry, Captain Blackbrow, but shaving your giant head doesn’t really make it look any smaller in size or more normal in shape.”

    “You brats! Get off my spaceship!”

  3. Tat Wood Says:

    Bouncers and strict dress-codes – more the sort of thing you’d expect from Virgin Galactic. Loving the fur-lined pixie-boots.

    But what is ‘Dunting’, as written under the door?

  4. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Space-Walmart has a decidedly poor severance package.

    @Tat Wood: you don’t want to get cold feet in outer space.

    The other book in this double was ‘The Light of Lilith’, cover by EMSH.

    In the first version of the script, Goldfinger turns the tables on Bond and Pussy Galore.

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat W—I think it says “Don’t ting,” trying to keep the cover classy, I guess.

    Apparently, 28 million dollars only gets you a one-way ticket these days.

    “I’ve had it up to HERE with your D.B. Cooper jokes!”

  10. THX 1139 Says:

    @Tat: “Dunting” is a Scots word meaning giving a little knock or push. Which is all you need in zero gravity to eject passengers.

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    He had to do it. They were running out of toilet paper.

  12. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Fur boots and no gloves? In a vacuum?

  13. Leak Says:

    If we’re talking Bezos here – is anybody really surprised by things getting lost in transit?

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @AR Yngve: It’s a soft vacuum. Easy-going, even.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I don’t think any of us can top @GSS Admin’s comment. GSS!

    @Leek and @Tat: I think it’s “DONTING”, which is future-speak for “yeeting Boy Scouts into space”.

    @ARY: maybe it’s just night and they’re still in enough atmosphere that it’s cold but there’s some air pressure. Thus the fur and no decompression. But a several-mile/km fall is still going to do for the… maybe they’re Young Pioneers?

  16. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Under Admiral Heinlein, the purges of the Space Boy Scouts were extensive. Some were thrown into space simply for not knowing how to use a slide rule.

  17. Tracy Says:

    How Dr. Evil started his career of evilness. By dunting Space Scouts.

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Once again, I think our ideas combine. Admiral Heinlein is yeeting the filthy Commie Young Pioneers out of the spaceship, slide rules or no.

    That spaceship will be used only for God, country, and incestuous relationships!

  19. A. R. Yngve Says:

    OK, so The Sun is a s**t newspaper, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call them saboteurs.

    Looks like the Argentinian space program to me..
