I like to wrap clothes around my atoms to prevent them getting in people's faces
Obama isn't even a fucking citizen.
Aaaaand any possible credibility, right out the window.
Plus there's actually international treaties against it.
Except for the part where it's persistent and steadily, albeit very slowly, increasing and we have no idea how to counteract it once it's in the atmosphere...
Yeah, let's just wait until it's actually a problem before we start researching how to fix it. What could possibly go wrong?
Can you really be considered anything but innocent if you(r society) lack(s) a sense of ethics/morality?
Chimps tend to mature faster than humans. So at that age, the chimp have completely undergone puberty and are more or less adult.
You really think the law regarding age of sexual consent has anything to do with biological maturity?!
Last I heard, legally speaking everyone in a number of European countries was considered a member of the state religion and "taxed" accordingly.
How many times do I have to keep telling people, Germany didn't start Word War 1?! Serbian nationalist assassinates Austrian dude, Austria invades Serbia, Russia starts mobilizing to defend Serbia, and ONLY THEN did Germany get involved.
Hence it would probably be a good idea to establish some sort of colony off-planet.
You'll have to forgive me if I don't take the survival of the human race as flippantly as you do...
The number that survives an ELE is irrelevant, as long as they are able to form a stable reproductive pool.
Were going to be around for a couple billion years and the race will adapt to whatever is thrown at it.
Two words: Extinction-level Event. Hence why we need to be able to get off the planet. Even assuming that doesn't happen for billions of years (wasn't there that hypothetical big asteroid that killed the dinosaurs? How many billion years ago was that?), you're assuming we won't have comprehensively fucked the environment in the next couple hundred years.
Take care of the shit going on first, then worry about space.
So basically, we're never ever going into space again. Okay then.
The summary also completely fails to mention what the hell kind of software he was looking for.
The general rule everywhere else I've driven is that traffic going straight has right-of-way, and those turning yield, which I suppose is why I was so surprised.
