You are merely assuming. He didnt actually *say* anything about putting
it back together on the other side, so the camel-o-matic blender
idea would work. What he *did* say was it was easier for a camel
to pass thru the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven.
In this I agree: in fact I was on a team to study this exact problem,
taking rich people to heaven using retired ICBMs [the plowshares

You figure, typical rich dude, 75 kg, assorted life support, another 300 kg,
reentry systems [Doug could back me up] but you will be a good 20,000 kg
on the pad, probably couldnt do it for much less than 10 million bucks, and
thats assuming a short stay in orbit and that he isnt *too* anal about
where he lands. I would think the camel thing would be easier.

Now of course, the other has been done. I dont suspect John Glenn
was too hard up last time he went to heaven. spike
