For only $150, you too can send a camera into space and take your own pictures...

The article is a little old, but two MIT students sent a camera into space with existing off of the shelf parts...

Space camera

for half a second I was like "Why the hell would anyone want to send a Camaro into space and then take a picture of it?" LOL!

I love the Dead Milkmen. Ah, my misspent youth...

Punk Rock Girl
One Saturday I took a walk to **********
I met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead
Punk rock girl
Please look at me
Punk rock girl
What do you see?
Let's travel round the world
Just you and me punk rock girl
I tapped her on the shoulder
And said do you have a beau?
She looked at me and smiled and said she did not know
Punk rock girl
Give me a chance
Punk rock girl
Let's go slam dance
We'll dress like Minnie Pearl
Just you and me punk rock girl
We went to the Philly Pizza Company
And ordered some hot tea
The waitress said well no, we only have it iced
So we jumped up on the table and shouted anarchy
And someone played a Beach Boys song on the jukebox
It it was "California Dreamin"
So we started screamin
On such a winter's day
She took me to her parents for a Sunday meal
Her father took one look at me and he began to squeal
Punk rock girl
It makes no sense
Punk rock girl
Your dad is vice president
Just like the Duke of Earl
Yeah you're for me punk rock girl
We went to a shopping mall
And laughed at all the shoppers
And security guards trailed us to a record shop
We asked for Mojo Nixon
They said he don't work here
We said if you don't got Mojo Nixon then your store could use some fixin
We got into her car away we started rollin
I said how much you pay for this
Said nothin man it's stolen
Punk rock girl
You look so wild
Punk rock girl
Let's have a child
We'll name her Minnie Pearl
Just you and me
Eat fudge banana swirl
Just you and me
We'll travel round the world
Just you and me
Punk rock girl

If you look at their website, apparently they're still performing a limited #er of shows here and there.

The great thing about being in a punk rock band (as the Ramones proved) you don't have to be great musicians, you just have to have great energy.

I had a really loud fusion/rock trio my senior year in college that did some punk material I wrote. We had the most bizarre sets...
