    I address you tonight not as the President of the United States, not as a leader of a country, but as a citizen of humanity. We are faced with the very gravest of challenges. The Bible calls this day "Armageddon"-the end of all things. And yet, for the first time in the history of the planet, a species has the technology to prevent its own extinction. All of you praying with us need to know that everything that can be done to prevent this disaster is being called into service.
    The human thirst for excellence, knowledge, every step up the ladder of science, every adventurous reach into space, all of our combined technologies and imaginations, even the wars that we've fought have provided us the tools to wage this terrible battle. Through all of the chaos that is our history, through all of the wrong and the discord, through all of the pain and the suffering, through all of our times, there is one thing that has nourished our souls, and elevated our species above its origins, and that is our courage.
    The dreams of an entire planet are focused tonight on those fourteen brave souls traveling into the heavens. And may we, citizens the world over, see these events through. God speed, and good luck to you.
    tl;dr

    AMERICA, FUCK YEAH

    crappy president speech
    Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive!

    Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

    So I edited the speech for people who don't want to read alot of words.

    ahem...

    I am a person and we are all in a lot of dangerrrr. The Bible sais we are all gonna die today, how ironic cause we are super smart! We are doing a lot of stuff to prevent it.

    We did alot of stuff to make us prepared for this thingy. We had a very silly history with lots of killing which somehow made us brave. And we are also launching 14 people into space.

    But this is all moot, because in a world where the movie Space Cowboys exist both of these movies are obsolete.

    Which one was the Bruce Willis move and which one had the Aerosmith caterwauling as the song?

    And you should all still watch the old Death Race 2000. It's gloriously horrid.

    I thought Deep Impact had a somewhat believable plot though.

    I mean really. Training oil drillers to be astronauts is somehow easier than training astronauts to drill oil? And they do this in a few days or something? Maybe it was weeks? Doesn't matter. Ridiculous. And don't give me no "it's a movie" bullshit.

    You are far more likely to be killed by your own pants then by an asteroid. Statistics are funny that way.
