Sally Ride succumbed to pancreatic cancer today. She was way too young. Her space shuttle launch is one of the first launches I can remember. /mourn

I was kind of surprised we didn't hear more from or about Sally Ride as the years progressed. She kind of fell out of existence after leading women into space.

61 is too young to die.

She was intensely private and did not want the focus to be on her as the "first woman astronaut." She really wanted other females to take up the banner behind her and blaze the trail forward and often spoke of that in San Diego. I had the privilege and honor of taking her physics class at UCSD, "Physics of the Universe." The lecture hall seated 250-300 students and on the first day of class, it was overfilled with students trying to crash. We were sitting in the aisles and under the chalkboards upfront. She accepted everyone's add request, reasoning "You guys are college students and I bet you guys won't go to every single class so there will be seats. We'll figure out how to give out the midterm and final." The exams ended up being take home because she wanted to emphasize learning the work rather than the grade and she was very generous with the grading curve. She told us students countless stories of her preparing for flight, training, how it felt to take off in the shuttle and she made every single one of us cry when she related her personal memories of when the Challenger disaster. She was one of my favorite instructors on campus and she made it a point to touch base with every female in class, encouraging us to take math and science classes not just because they were general ed classes, but math and science were cool.

There were a lot of cover ups and misdirection during the Cold War. In order to throw off the Soviets, NASA listed placed her on the shuttle as a Physicist, but her real position was "Sandwich Technician". She went into hiding to prevent the truth from being revealed.

It has no bacon?

Currently the closest thing to perfection is the BLT but only when the T is fresh from the garden the L is leafy and not bergy and the B is hot and crispy ...and it's not on whole wheat (whole wheat has ruined more great sandwiches than the school lunch program)..

My ultimate sandwich would be really good corned beef, crispy smoky bacon, fresh tomatoes, and lots of Russian/thousand island dressing on a really good thick cut, fresh baked bread. You can keep the *****.

Best sandwich is the MLT: a mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They're so perky, I love that.

If a Reuben and a BLT had *** and had little sandwich babies, they could take over the world.

If we're going to put that much effort into sandwich construction, lets have pikko craft it into some kind of edible bento creature too.

Pfft, what effort. Where do you think finger sandwiches come from?

Also, I don't know who pikko is.

Edit: My link isn't working. Let's just assume it led to a picture of miniature sandwiches that looked like real fingers.

I think you could successfully add bacon to a reuben. Likewise a bit of baby swiss on a BLT could be a good thing.

But lettuce and sauerkraut should never share pieces of bread.

When Person A and Person B have *** and make a baby, does said baby end up with ALL of the features of A and B? No, the baby just ends up with some features from each. Since I am the evil scientist in this sandwich engineering, I decree that the sandwich babies would end up like this:

Bread: thick cut and crusty, doesn't have to be rye, but it can be if you want it to. Under no circumstances is it pumpernickle
Meat: delicious, tender, thick cut corned beef and cripy applewood smoked bacon
Cheese: any firm, smooth-melting, white cheese will do; gruyere, swiss, jack, pepper jack
Fixins: thick-cut heirloom tomatoes, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing
Assembly: bread, layer of Russian dressing, tomatoes, beef, *****, bacon, layer of Russian dressing, bread; put it on a panini press long enough to toast the bread, enjoy

As is mayonaisse, unless it's mixed with ketchup, diced hard-boiled egg, and relish.

Edit: Speaking of mayonaisse, I was watching ESPN last night and they showed the Chicago Bears' training camp and it takes place in a town called Bourbonaisse, Illinois. This immediately made me want to formulate a sandwich spread that got you completely sloshed.

Oh, I love pumpernickle bread. Just not for a reuben.

And sorry about not knowing pikko. I'm relatively new to forums other than the WoW forums.
