LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

As soon as I can afford a rocket car. So quite a while after I buy my flying car.

I wouldn't start packing yet. LOL

Lmao.

Lmao.
Or we could start a YouTube channel and film episodes composed of action shots alternating with talking into the camera like on The Office.

Spacecraft performing loop-de-loops.

Cut to Vballspieler looking annoyed, with everyone else looking painfully motion sick in the background.

Vball: And this is why we don't let Flyngirl pilot the ship!

A female voice in the background lets out a prolonged yell reminiscent of a certain insane pilot. Everyone else groans.


Yeah, that could be really fun.

We need to make sure we have lots of liquid courage on board. For us, not for her. Otherwise, I think she might pull a Murdock and crash the plane.

Lol

That wasn't a crash....I simply landed the aircraft with extreme prejudice due to a total loss OF THRUST AND LIFT FUNCTIONS!!!

Face, this is what we call in pilot land 'a coffin with wings'...

Y'know, Murdock only ever crashed when Face scammed him a sub-standard aircraft. *ahem*....

What about the plane that Murdock scammed from the repair line. He crashed that one. Can't help it if Face was too busy to get you a decent one. (It's the episode where Face was a priest and Murdock built an ultralight aircraft.)

When your license is current, we'll see what options are available. Never too early to start planning. I need to know how much luggage I can pack when we decide to go (to the colonies)

Wonder If they have internet, hmm......

Search your feelings, Flyngirl... you know it to be true.

What? They might not have the internet?! But I'm a Millennial - I can't live without the internet! I'll have to read actual books and write on actual paper and talk to actual people.... Oh wait. I do that already. Never mind. Crisis averted.

Maybe I should bring a few DVDs along though - you know, so we can give the Colonials an idea of Earth culture. Any suggestions? I do have the extended versions of all three LOTR movies; that should keep us - uh, I mean them - for a little while.

We'll all bring our DB collection. That should keep us busy for Jahrens.

Yes, I think we have enough between all of us to last a little while at least.

What is incredible to me, is that this "Belgian" scientist (finally a native of my country, that is not a terrorist or child molester and that gets world wide press coverage) named the planets after ... beer! Typical!!
Of course ... "Trappist" is very good beer, if not the best

LOL!!! It's also a brand of jam, I think.

I'm definitely on board with the name. I like to think if I discovered a new universe it would have a name befitting my interests. The "Guinness" galaxy has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
