So we’re not going back to the moon. That sucks, but space has sucked for some time.
It took only about sixty-five years from getting a plane to fly a couple feet to getting to the moon, but over forty years after that we’re not even capable of going back to moon. We suck.
The most amazing accomplishment of man, the moon landing, was ten years before I was born and we’re not even interested in trying to top it. With the progress we had back in the late sixties, we’d expect to have well-settled Mars colonies by 2010. But, no, we’re all quite earthbound and working on the same Earth problems we’ve always had. Stupid Earth. We even have environmentalism to try and get a few more miles out of this dumb planet instead of finding a new, better one.
I guess the solution is more capitalism since we probably won’t have a revolution in space until people can make a profit there. But space is expensive. Hopefully some very smart and greedy people are working on this.
I guess this all benefits me. Now I can go up to Obama and say, “Since we’re not going to the moon, I guess there’s no reason not to… nuke it!”
Of course, every time I try to approach Obama I get tackled — even if I have documentation showing I’m allowed to be there. The Secret Service just say I have the sort of face they like to tackle. Jerks.
