Qtest Astronaut EVAR!

There won't be anyone yelling at her to "Iron my shirt!".

But who's the black woman?

So what month is White History month? Can we start a movement to have a Federal holiday that celebrates it for a day?

I'm thinking maybe Hugh Hefner day on March 14th.

(Google March 14th for relevence)

Charles I figured you'd like to spearhead such a movement....

Dr. Jemison is even more alluring than the Scarlett Johansson photo Josh posted earlier.  Charles is on a roll today.

@6 i know! i remember watching the old star trek episodes and thinking: what's with the women in space wearing such short and sexy skirts? that wouldn't happen in reality. because in reality, as it turns out, it's shorter and sexier hot pants!!!

This post is both sexist and racist.

(Of course it's not, but somebody would probably say that eventually.)

Chaz, I realize this is totally based on your bias in favor of "the ladies", and so I'll cut you slack on this one, because, well, Dr. Jamison is remarkable in her own right.

However, if you REALLY want to honor the America's First Black Astronaut, you gotta go with the late Maj. Robert Lawrence Jr..

Hot pants in space = very yes.

Here's how it breaks down.

1) Sexy lady - hot
2) Super smart - hotter
3) Star Trek - way hotter
4) Astronaut - ON FIRE

Suddenly thought wow wouldn't it be great to have a vid of her floating with J. Brown as the sound track. "Hot Pants!"

Damn. Now ya got me bein' sexist... or is it sexy?

@4, Every month is white history month.

Now it's my turn to say something inane: I wonder if Dr. Jemison is having trouble deciding who to vote for.

Every month is white history month? Since when? I guess that also means this month isn't black history month. Way to keep the brothers down.

Posted by Jason Josephes | February 5, 2008 2:42 PM

Really, you don't think there will be plenty of European history in February's curriculum?

This month should at least be slightly more balanced than most. Sort of.
