    Default SpaceX Launch!

    We watched it live. Woohoo!

    Is it just my imagination, or is the 1st stage recovery drone ship "I Still Love You" a Culture reference?
    Never read the books, but I know how they name their ships...

    The full name is "Of Course I Still Love You", and according to This article, it is explicitly a Culture reference.

The pancakes are also laced with blowfish poison so the party would have to get an antitoxin before they could eat the ones which weren't pulverized by shoes."

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    Of Course I Still Love You and Just Read the Instructions are Culture references, yes.
