This is what the Christian Science Monitor writes about the petition by Star Wars fans for NASA to develop a working hyperdrive:
"We need better propulsion systems. Right now I'd say that would be the one invention that would really help us out a lot," said Joseph Tellado, a logistics manager for the International Space Station. "It'd be great if our astronauts could go at hyperspeed."
This is how I'd have written it, and how it probably was said:
"We need," said Jeff Tellado, a logistics manager for the International Space Station, with a dramatic pause, "better propulsion systems!" Chuckling loudly, Tellado rolled his eyes. "Right now I'd say that would be the one invention that would really help us out a lot. [LOL!]"
As he said this, Tellado lifted his right arm and began rotating the forearm at the elbow in a sort of "helicopter" motion. With his left arm, Tellado formed a hollow fist and began jerking the fist up and down, furiously. Then, Tellado put his right thumb and forefinger together, lifted them to his mouth, and slowly pulled them away, making a choking noise. "It'd be great if our astronauts could go at hyperspeed," Tellado said in a high, nasal tone, which struck this reporter as reminiscent of that used by Sean Penn, playing Jeff Spicoli in the film Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
As for me, I'll be content when the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign delivers that Heuristic ALgorithm 9000 machine I've been waiting for since 1997. I'll bet it has better graphics and runs games a lot faster than the stupid laptop I'm using to write this post.
