Deep thoughts with Chris Archer

Sep 24, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

I can’t tell if this is silly or deep, but either way it’s definitely way better than anything I’ve ever posted on my stupid Twitter feed:

And also Archer has a 3.21 ERA in 22 starts as a 24-year-old rookie, playing a big part in the Rays’ march to a Wild Card spot.

    Chris Archer drops acid between starts.

      You obviously have too much vinegar in your cucumber to create a cohesive commentary…

    Chris Archer and Buckminster Fuller are on the same page:

      Ugh, sorry about the photo. I though my comment would only include a link.

        Don’t apologize. The picture is awesome and it saves me an additional click.

    I’m not sure of all the technicalities, but I would think a spaceship would consist of some propulsion system, not the gravitational pull Earth has with the sun.

      Gravity can serve as a propulsion system.

      Gravity has been a critical component of virtually every spaceship ever launched beyond low Earth orbit. Without “slingshots” Voyager 1 would still be meandering somewhere near the gas giants instead of leaving the solar system.

        Let me change my view. So gravity can serve as a propulsion system, but would it be considered a spaceship if gravity is the only source of propulsion? I personally think a spaceship would require something other than gravity to be considered a spaceship.

    Chris Archer, this generation’s Bill (Spaceman) Lee?

    Seems like a rather mundane observation if you’ve studied even basic astronomy.
