    What did you do in KSP today?

    Tried making a small airplane today. And by small I mean size 0. This was the first iteration: And somehow I managed to get Jeb to clip into the runway ground... TWICE! He doesn't seem to have a problem with it, though... Anyways, the craft had some problems, so I had to redesign some parts. This second interation works slightly better, but it can't land, so I have to use parachutes to touch the ground safely. Other than that I fixed my SSTO! slightly... In orbit it had around 309m/s of dV left, so it's pretty much useless. It also becomes rather uncontrollable during reentry because the CoM seems to move behind the CoL as it burns fuel. It pitches up so badly that even with RCS it's barely stable. To my own surprise, not only did I manage to land this... thing, I managed to land it in one piece on the first attempt!

    Thread to complain bout stuff

    I know, but I was complaining about what I would consider premature use if "am". 12 pm as a "followup" to 11 pm would just make more sense. Instead, 11 pm is one hour before midnight and 12 pm is noon?

    Banned for banning someone with the reason that they banned someone in a thread all about banning.

    ... 9 PM 10 PM 11 PM 12 AM?
  8. Today was the last day of a local funfair. We (my parents and I, because I don't really have anyone else) stayed there from 8pm to 12am. When it officially ended at 12am there was a funeral for the funfair, something I got to see for the first time this year. After that there were some fireworks. It was a pretty nice night! 359 days until it happens again! Well, I'm close enough to the arctic circle such that it is still twilight, so...
  9. Maybe one can cause the other? They might get interested in space after playing KSP!

    Depends on what part of Earth can be seen from there.

    I'll be incredibly dumb right now: I have no idea what this is about.

    Well, it doubled in size... Not really sure if that's such a big improvement.

    We did that in 1969, but now it's 2018. The average person probably doesn't even know that space travel is still a thing that regularly happens.
