Big Frickin' Engines!

Well, if the federal government is going to spend billions on a project, at least make it frickin' big:

Via Wikipedia, regarding this image, Werner von Braun Standing by Five F-1 Engines:

This is a featured picture, which means that community consensus has identified it as one of the finest images on Wikipedia, adding significantly to its accompanying article."

Heh, this reminds me of the Tom Lehrer song:
"Once zey go up, who cares where zey come down?
  Zat's not my department!" says Werner von Braun.

a Tom Lehrer fan!
His Hunting Song is my favorite.

Imagine how hard it is to find a good mechanic?

What if you had a flat? I would hate to have to change it!...

Some have harsh words for this man of reknown
But some think our attitude should be one of gratitude
Like the widows and cripples of old London town
Who owe their large pensions to Werner von Braun

You too may be a big hero, once you've learned to count backwards to zero.
"In German, or in English I know how to countdown
And I'm learning Chinese," says Werner von Braun"

I don't know what kind of tires they are Zsa Zsa, but they look like go-kart tires on that thing.
