Cambria, if we are to survive as a species we need to build up more and more infrastructure around the solar system. The reason being is that if we don’t an extinction event is going to take us back to the dark ages, supposing that fractional reserve gangsterism doesn’t do that first.
And then from the dark ages we can be made extinct by another extinction event. These being typically close-passing planet-sized comets.
So we’ve got to have kitted out real estate, with a relentless amount of living and working space, all over the solar system. The poor old guys still holding down a job and leading the good life, but in a weightless environment. The richer old guys hanging out in cool places like the moon. The moon being at that place where gravity exerts its most perfect intensity.
I’m not yet convinced of the benefits of having three 20 year old girls from Pattaya in a totally weightless environment. I think that would be a wasted opportunity. And I”m not fully convinced of the benefits of one-man …. three-girl sex ……. on earth. I think no matter how lovable the idea is, you tend to lose momentum and it just doesn’t really work. Or at the very least its not quite value for money. You can put up a brave face with enough uppers but the reality is you aren’t so much built to take full advantage of that scenario.
But sex on the Moon? Man that has just got to be the thing that all the teenagers are aiming at. At least as much traction as you are after, and no more weight then you need. And don’t bother trying to get away young lady because I can bound like spider-man across this spacious private “Karaoke” room.
So it was natural to have the young kids, read their comics and if they couldn’t be superhuman they could dream about going to the moon. It was natural for the teenage boys to take this thinking one step further.
The things you think about as kids and teenagers, tend to get locked in to a certain extent, if you have the drive and opportunity to actually fullfil some of your youthful ambitions.
So what I’m saying is that if not for (!@#$%^&*) NASA it was only natural for the motivation to be present to save the species.
Along came APOLLO. With these assholes stumbling around in slow-mo, pretending to be on the moon. The moon. The place with the best gravity for the ideal way to play. Screwing up everyone’s understanding of the possibilities of extra-terrestrial living. Imagine a 19 year old lad telling a 16 year old lad: “You loser. You haven’t lived until you’ve been to the moon with three girls from Pattaya and dropped some acid in the huge “Karaoke” rooms they have there.”
Fucking ay. By that standard, few of us have really, truly lived all that often. Almost none of us who haven’t been to Thailand.
The species will die, because NASA will suck the life out of it.
