I admit to a fascination with Rocket City Rednecks on National Geographic. This is one of my favorite channels, along with Discovery Channel, Cooking Channel, TNT and USA for neat new shows.
RCR is an outstanding addition to my TV/DVR shows. I've no idea how long this show has been on, but I am so very glad to have finally found it.
The show is based on the scientific redneck activity of five Southern Gentlemen (which is one of their S trilogy of rules)
From National Geographic channel site: "Meet the self-proclaimed Rocket City Rednecks. They’re five “backwoods” guys from the rocket city: Huntsville, Alabama, home to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the birthplace of the U.S. space program. Sure, they love to shoot stuff and drink beer, and one of ’em lives in a trailer, but with a family tree full of NASA rocket scientists (not to mention their own PhDs and advanced degrees), they aim a little higher—like using homemade moonshine to fuel a rocket! In each episode, we'll see how they apply redneck ingenuity with advanced engineering and physics to creatively solve real-world problems... and have a little fun, of course!"
Watching this show reminds me of one of DH's (my own Rocket Redneck) favorite sayings, "Just because I talk slow, doesn't mean I am slow." Would that the rocket scientists where I work were as hellah cool as these five and their friends.
