Yikes. This’ll be a good weekend to stick around the neighborhood, because no subway station will be safe from maintenance snags:

18 out of 20 subway lines that run on weekends will be disrupted as the MTA launches a massive repair project…

The MTA says they have to blitz the system with repairs now, because once the weather turns colder, some repairs are impossible to make.

You expect weekend wackiness when it comes to the trains, but come on. What have the repair crews been doing all summer? Why all this blitzing into one weekend? Not much point in venturing underground this Saturday and Sunday. Hope the sidewalks won’t be too crowded.

quad laser retaliation
If you haven’t heard, tomorrow NASA will be searching for water on the moon — by slamming a couple of spacecraft into the lunar surface.

Triggering massive moonscape explosions? Wasn’t that the premise behind “Space: 1999″? Only ten years late on sending our natural satellite hurtling through deep space.

Even worse than that, NASA’s antics will sure incur the wrath of everyone’s favorite “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” aliens, the mooninites. Watch the skies for the big blow-up, and then watch Ignignokt and Err flip the bird as they hit back Earthside with their dreaded quad lazer! Or maybe they’ll give a repeat performance of their diabolically panic-inducing guerilla marketing stunts from two years ago.
