Observation #2

On infomercials, when companies boast about the “space age technology” of a given product, aren’t they really only claiming that they have a technology that was possibly developed as many as 50 years ago?

LOL. Perhaps John McCain needs to fire back at the "1982" commercial with a "Space Age" salvo.

And it probably means they 'borrowed' that tech from NASA.

Robb,

That, or he could just pay to have the 1982 ad aired extra times in Florida.

Probably making fun of old people isn't the best strategy to win that state…

Will,

I wish I could remember what this specific product was—but it didn't seem to be nearly cool enough to belong in a space ship.

Well, if you believe the moon landings were a hoax, then we haven't even entered the Space Age yet, so the technology is waaay ahead of its time.

Alex,

That is a very good point.

Though it's pretty well established that we've been to space, right? So maybe we're just not in the moon age yet?
