Chicken Sandwiches In Space Are Ridiculous

Fuck you

Fuck you

This is Kentucky Fried Crazy. Finger-Licking Juvenile. This is the worst side of privatized spaceflight. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of space travel being solely in the hands of governments who don't give a damn about it, but that doesn't mean I'm not calling bullshit when I see it. 

First I should probably admit that I am the kind of guy who gets annoyed balloons exist because helium is pretty awesome stuff and it's not like our resources of it are infinite. 

"But Jarrod!" you cry, (or don't because you don't exist and this is a writing device) "What about the fact that World View, a high altitude research company, got to test out a new maneuvering platform on this mission funded by KFC?".
Well, first I'd thank you for googling that for yourself instead of taking my assertion that it's bullshit at face value. Then I'd tell you that scientists and engineers shouldn't have to adorn their creations with advertisements for a heart attack on a bun (regardless of how delicious is may or may not be), especially in a world where someone starves to death about once every ten seconds, or any other kind of useless crap for that matter. 

This isn't a good look for you, spaceflight. I'd talk about a time I remember when this wasn't the norm, but I've watched to many TV commercials shot on Mir to be that naive.
