might be able to get it into low earth-orbit with a home-built

solid-fuel (aluminum powder) booster you could construct for three

or four mil or thereabouts. As I understand it, you just have to

get it up to escape velocity (18,000 miles per hour or so) then cut

the power and jettison the head when the ship is at the proper angle

and altitude. But if all that sounds infeasable, maybe you could take

a couple of cases of good Vodka and cartons of smokes to Russia and

bribe a guy heading up to the Mir station. He could hide the head in

his lunchbox (Rooskies is big eaters) and pitch it out when he gets up

there. If he gives it a good hard throw it should travel far enough

from the station so it won't be staring at the occupants, and

establish itself in low earth orbit, along with the piss bags and

empty toothpaste tubes and other assorted space debris. But it's orbit

might eventually decay and you'd have a hot head heading back to

Earth. Or a small meaty-or.

Whose head was you thinkin' of sending up?





Easier to ask whose head I'm not thinkin' of sending up.

just john denver, since you shits didnt bother to read anything about

it, allow me clue you in,

i want head fins, something like Flash,

somebody wants the head boiled in acid

somebody else wants to shoot it out of a rocket-thingy.

there are more, but i have no time, too much planning

things to do ect. ect.

so far its a go for launch - dont know when, since Pope Angus

kindly pointed out that jd already lauched his OWN fucking

head - a forward thinking man.

now try to keep up will ya.
