Not again! You’d think for an engineer, she could learn; 1-how to NOT launch a turkey again, and 2-how to aim it better. At least she did it outdoors this time, and not in the barn.
Meanwhile, I’m ROFLOL.
I’ll say it now, and several more times through the week.
Happy Thanksgiving, all you flyover basket of deplorables.
And now, I’m to bed. I still have to get up early for one more day of work this week. (ain’t PTO great?)
Consistency is the hallmark of good engineering.
Sam’s cooking continues to develop an impressive Specific Impulse (Isp). NASA is jealous.
Glad to see Sam remains true to form (in so many ways).
Once again the Owens will have Chinese take-out for Thanksgiving. Family traditions are important in so many ways.
Chinese take-out works. Obviously. Otherwise she’d learn from the previous years.
We go out to Cracker Barrel. Good Food, great price, no dirty dishes!
That last point sells it for me no matter what the menu.
You’re supposed to let the turkey thaw if you don’t want to launch it.
Have a quite, pleasant, well-fed Turkey Day.
Sam, too bad you couldn’t have revised the trajectory to aid in the “hurry up, get the hell gone from here” to the retreating antifa…
Yeah, I want to see a black clad bozo on a gurney and his EMT saying he was beaned by a frozen turkey.
EMT notes to ER “SOCMOB, HBFT”

Hit By Flying Turkey
Great artwork on the sunset, Chris!
I don’t think that is a sunset. I think that beautiful glow is from the fireball of the turkey launch.
I wonder what DEFCON NORAD went to when they got the first sighting?
I agree with the “launch” glow. The trajectory streak is still climbing!
Lawn chairs, Beer and Popcorn to watch the yearly launch.
I’m more concerned by what the Russian satellites tell their boozed up button pushers.
Yeah, I see that now. It’s a nice sunset too, at least the kind we get around here. I was assuming the main point of the frame was the trail in the sky!
Travis has “gone walkabout” again? Why isn’t he doing Thanksgiving dinner?
No he’s doing Suzy Q…:D
I can’t help but wonder who would benefit the most from Sam’s secret – NASA, or the Army??? 🙂
Maybe Elon Musk and SpaceX?
They’re not all that far from White Sands. Maybe the Air Force will show up.
Blue Origin is out there, somewhere near Marfa.
Sam, next year, look for a good catered takeout.
Let’s hope Sam’s turkey doesn’t hit the Hubble Telescope again…
Or a Keyhole.
Downtown, as in beautiful downtown Burbank?
Damn, girl. Have you not read the instruction manual?
… so, since “downtown” is the probable impact area, is this gonna be as calamatous as the WKRP turkey drop?
Sams is going be carrying a but more kinetic energy than a bird dropped from a Helo. Hers approached LEO before coming back down…
Gerald Bull would be proud.
Especially with that short of a “barrel”. (the height of the pot)
“With God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.”
(Wild ones do. Quite damn vigorously, though neither high nor far.)
In this case, it would be “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fry.”
Yeah, and don’t disturb them when they roost. The thunder of takeoff will make you have flashbacks.
“They can’t fly?!?!?!?!” LOL
Day-um I thought it was a Falcon Heavy Space X launch!!!
Have a good Thanksgiving holiday Chris. Reflection & smiling on family are good for the soul as well as steeling the heart to protect them.
Loved the re-entry contrail … pretty sure that after that flight there will be very little mass that actually hits ‘downtown’. Friction, ya know …
Whatever is left if they could find it should be well cooked!
“Do it again Mommy” sells the whole thing.
Did anyone else first read that as a metaphor for the beginning of labor?
Da bun is done!?
Happy Thanksgiving, Chris and everyone.
Where are we going out to eat dad?
Mom “cooked the kitchen” again, didn’t she?
Best thanksgiving ever. Even mom enjoyed it.
Who’s eating dad, ain’t that mommies job? 😉
Just how far is “downtown”? As I recall, Domino’s is 70 minutes away.
Low earth orbit can get many places fairly quick.
Looks to me like the turkey was headed for orbit; although without a circularizing burn it might end up just being a ballistic trajectory.
If we launch turkeys into North Korea then that’s a good thing since they need the food, yes?
Yesterday the 6:30 ‘world news’ started with the Chicago hospital shooting, CBS had a witness who said shooter was a black guy. So I assumed the news would soon stop mentioning it.
Today the news stories say shooter was Juan Lopez. And not much else from the Sanctuary City is being said and I’m not assuming, seems a pretty common name.
Check out the crazy pic of the second police officer’s holster and handgun that saved him by taking the bullet. Whoa, that’s close. https://abc7chicago.com/mercy-hospital-chicago-shooting-2-dead-including-gunman/4720765/
Whew. Worst “stovepipe” jam I’ve ever seen. 😉
Talk about *assuming, that could have a connection to the following, which is an excellent illustration of why Priority One moving forward to 2020 has got to be judges judges judges. DT has quietly done very well at getting benches filled with Constitutionalists including the supreme one. And getting another one of those is critical but so is the fact that there are dozens of lower level appointments pending and that is much more problematic now after the loss of the House.
And that critical priority is the one that will enable all of the others and protect them into the future just as this bullshit right here shows. We have a bunch of domestic stuff pending but immigration is our top problem, and the courts will decide whether America First is a defensible position. If not once enough replacement voters have been funneled in…???
*Yeah I’m assuming dude is an illegal or the spawn of same. Sue me.
Migrant complains about free food received in Mexico, admits that refried beans are actually comida de cerdo. Chipotle, take note.
Case in point…this lefty activist pos judge is an appointee of the Zero and operates out of San Francisco. If the key to the survival of the American Republic is slamming the door on foreign invasion, then the courts are the keyholders. Got to fix this shit and get some protectors of the Constitution confirmed and on the bench.
Weaponized turkey, yum.
Oh, brother. She’s shooting turkeys again.
I’m with the kids…do it again!
Sam can’t cook for shit but that engineering comes in mighty handy with this fowl incendiary tradition she’s got going…and as to impact who knows what the composition of that thing is since she knew it was made to launch?
Light show. Then Cracker Barrel. Or if you’re lucky enough like me to have a Georgia wifey that knows her some Southern cooking, ‘specially for Thanksgiving to share with the babies and grands. OTOH we went camping one year in Ocala Forest and had our “turkey” dinner at the only open place that felt a lot like the Christmas Story thjng except instead of chinese and a goose we had rednecks and meat loaf. Good though.
Happy Thanksgiving to all; Chris if you should find yourself over Sebring way…
College is becoming un-American.
‘Thanks But No Thanks-Giving’: University Of Oregon Student Groups Focus On ‘Decolonizing’ The Holiday
“The main messages are that of gratitude, food, and family; however, Thanksgiving is, foundationally speaking, a celebration of the ongoing genocide against native peoples and cultures across the globe,” the event description reads.
Weaponized Turkey is NOT against the Geneva Convention…:)
Speaking as somebody who worked for a couple decades in civilian & military space programs (think NASA Shuttle program and DoD stuff), I gotta say I was howlin’ over here…
In fun news, I now have an AR Lower receiver, and will be going .300 BLK for the extra parts. Shopping Daytona Tactical. Should be ready to shoot feral hogs by the end of January! 🙂
Does this mean south Texas is now Fryover Country?
