Meet Sam, Space Dog

UnknownA toy dog named Sam has been sent into the Earth’s atmosphere by schoolchildren in Lancashire, England. The videotape of Sam’s wild ride is below. He returned safely and the world’s coolest stuffed toy.

Sam was attached to a helium balloon and was filmed travelling 25km (15 miles) into the stratosphere as part of a science project by Morecambe Bay Community Primary School.

For optimal viewing, here is an appropriate music track . . .

  1. @Elmer Fudd. “Obviously he’s secretly gay, no straight person has ever supported homosexuals in any way. Hyuck hyuck “bent”, you really put those horrible gays in their place. Now to round ’em all up into concentration camps where they can’t convert more decent straight folk.”

    Sam Stone.. came home…
    To his wife and famileee.
    After serving in the conflict overseas.

    And Sammy took to stealing…
    When he got that empty feeling.
    A hundred dollar habit…
    Without overtime.

    And, the morphine eased the pain.
    Like a thousand railroad trains.
    And eased the mind like a rabbit on his throne!
    While his kids ran around in other peoples’ clothes!

    There’s a hole in daddy’s arm…
    Where all the money goes.
    Jesus Christ, died for nothin.
    I supposed.


  3. While I was watching the video another video popped up at the end saying that Bruce Springstein canceled a concert in NC because of the gay bathroom issue. I am wondering if he is “bent”. Does anyone on the blog know? This is not “off topic” because it was afterall, on the screen.

  4. Light post so an off topic question. Is it coincidence that our fiercely proud Canadian, Isaac, vanished when it became clear no Canadian teams made the Stanley Cup Playoffs? It’s been 46 years. Now, I believe his beloved Pierre Trudeau was PM when this disgrace last occurred. Trudeau’s pretty boy, vapid son is PM and this failure rears its head again. Hockey Gods hate dull witted, liberal, French Canadian PM’s.

  5. Apparently they found the camera almost 50 miles away but, unfortunately, “… do not have any data on the aerodynamics of a toy dog.” 😉

  6. I heard on the news this morning that Sam was dislodged and has not yet been found.
