I can 'fix' that wiki article, but I'll get a timeout, for doing it.

Hrm. April Fool's Day is on the horizon...  ;D

LOL, maybe I should sue the US Gov for trademark infringement :)

Hi PCNetSpec,

No, not the US Gov!! You need to sue SpaceX (founder: Elon Musk). They built the capsule and (I assume) decided on the parachute design.

He's the safer bet anyway, he's got lots of money that hasn't been squandered. :P

Not to mention I wouldn't burst out laughing when the head of SpaceX took the dock.

Just don't be too hard on him, he's the reason we still have a space program.

Rest assured, after I've taken all his money I'll keep SpaceX PeppermintX going but now the rockets themselves will also be candy striped :)

[EDIT]

Tesla's will also blow red and white bubbles whilst parked and have Peppermint flavoured paint :)
(therefore being self cleaning as kids lick them .. clever eh?)
