You can give an Okie some warning, dammit

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- A rocket carrying a national security payload has been successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on California's central coast.
The Atlas 5 rocket blasted off shortly before 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Vandenberg officials said the satellite was carrying a classified payload from the National Reconnaissance Office, which oversees the nation's constellation of spy satellites.
The rocket appeared as a brilliant light streaking across a clear Southern California night sky.


Not just SoCal, fuckers......
I was out chucking empty beer cans at CharlieGodammit awhile ago when I heard the dyke chick 2 doors down hoo-hawing..
I thought her viber-ator had up and gotten away on her.
Hey, it was an honest mistake.....

Since I watch these things, and generally have advance notice of launches, I'll make sure I post upcoming ones on the blog.
And I missed the one last night. DAMN...told all my friends about it, and was fucking around with my new laptop at launch time.

I used to live next to Vandenberg and saw dozens, if not hundreds, of launches. Every one was pretty cool, but you ain't seen nothing till they abort one at night. It's spectacular enough when they do it in daylight, but at night it turns the whole night into day for about a minute. You're suddenly not pissed anymore about being wakened at 2:00 AM by all the fucking noise.
