South Korea to make new attempt to put satellite in orbit

South Korea says it plans to make a new attempt on Wednesday at launching a rocket intended to put a satellite in orbit, a feat it has failed to achieve on previous occasions.

The pressure on the South Korean rocket scientists has increased since the country's hostile neighbor, North Korea, carried out its own successful launch last month in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

    A grizzled old man was eating in a truck stop when three
    H ell's Angels bikers walked in. The first biker approached
    the old man, threw his cigarette into the old man's pie,
    and then took a seat at the counter.

    Then, a second biker walked over to the old man, spit into
    his glass of milk, and then took a seat at the counter.

    Finally, a third biker verbally attacked the old man,
    knocked his plate of food into his lap, and then took a
    seat at the counter.

    Without a word of protest, the old man quietly left the
    diner. Shortly thereafter, one of the bikers commented to
    the waitress, "Not much of a man, is he?"

    The waitress replied, "Not much of a truck driver either.
    He just backed his truck over three motorcycles."

    Funny, I heard from other news outlets that the launch was successful hours before this posted. Glad I can count on CNN to let me know that they're also planning a launch!
