    I'm pretty sure those are Chicklets, not a designation of rank


    also: moon colonies or mars colonies or whatever will never be set up

    the most you'll ever see will be scientific bases- I mean, Antarctica is a hell of a lot more hospitable than the moon and we've only got three or four dudes down there year around, not even doing anything

    twiddling their thumbs and counting the occasional herd of penguins that wander by

    dude we can't even regulate our own environment

    what makes you think we can control the air on other planets

    (also, since Mars' core no longer spins, the planet doesn't generate enough of a magnetic field to maintain any sort of atmosphere. If we melted the icecaps or whatever, the steam would just diffuse into space)

    b-b-but mars doesn't have a liquid core like earth so no magnetosphere=no protection against bombardment of solar radiation which in turn ionizes the atmosphere and basically blows it into space slowly

    we could fuck earth up like crazy and it would still make 100x more sense to live here

    Not that I want to ruin your fun or anything

    I would give anything to live on the moon, hell, I wouldn't mind being the dude that sacrifices himself to ride a rocket on over to mars and set up the tent/dig a well for the dudes that come later

    I bet I'd get a monument and everything

    But there's so much shit out in space that'll kill us, we'll have to adapt ourselves to the environment (read: develop overlord carapaces), rather than adapt the environment to ourselves.

    I have already been decidedly interested, previously. Consequently, I have seen some good info like the following:


    http://www.kiddofspeed.com/
    Awesome website of some woman that road throughout the Chernobyl region. All true with lots of pictures.

    Thanks for the link. I'd seen this website a few years ago and was unable to find it again.

    Must admit I feel a bit out of sorts... this place looks so huge and silent. :|

    well its not like we're just going to stop aiming for colonizing moon/mars because it's unfeasible now

    humanity will never just sit back and go "well, I suppose that's good enough, eh old chap?"

    we're a bunch of violent conquering expansionist assholes, as species go

    If pandas reminded me of human babies, I would say just toss them in a wood chipper. Maybe not the cute ones.

    Ugly babies are the most depressing sight. You're supposed to be cute, damn you!

    Its the heavy-handed approach some environmentalists have. Its always the crazy wackjobs you hear about, kinda like any group that gets any type of media attention. I'm sure the majority of them are very nice people.

    To be fair, when we met up I totally went on a four hour rant about how the sulfur output from farts was dangerous when it mixed with rain-water and, as such, dried fruit should be outlawed.

    like i said, i agree with the principles whole heartedly

    it's the guys that are like "we need to cut carbon emissions by 80% in two years!" that i think are dummies

    that's about as likely as me flying to the moon and having tea with the moon queen when i get there

    sorry i was just reading an article in the newspaper about a group of environmentalists who oppose the planting of biofuel crops on the grounds that it is destroying natural habitats for other organisms

    See what I learnt is on the forums you need to go in-depth on whatever generalising statements you make because there is always some one lurking and waiting to argue you you.
