I can dig it. I've looked up some songs and found that I liked my misheard lyrics better. Toto's "White Sister", for instance:
How can you say you love me?
You don't even love yourself
You live your life like a dog at night
Just waiting on the step
I'd rather see pro football remain as it is, but also see all school sponsorship of the sport ended. Let the adults who want to make a profession of the game go into it with their eyes wide open, not indoctrinated as impressionable young people. If the sport dies from lack of participation, so be it.
Let it die. The trend for every decade I've been alive is that more brains are needed to survive in the workplace, not less. Not only are the jobs more skilled, there are more rules to follow--- you have to have the mental wherewithal to know when you can and cannot say "fucked her right in the pussy", to use one famous example. We don't need otherwise healthy people starting at a deficit because they placed some game during their developmental years.
You're kinda missing the point of asteroid mining. The idea is to gather useful materials up there and keep them up there to support a space based civilization. That way you can use and move the stuff around using energy efficient transfer orbits and modest amounts of delta-vee, instead of lifting mountains of material against Earth's gravity. A lot of high-tech from Earth will be needed to bootstrap early operations, but the goal would be a self supporting space-based society based on raw resources available in space, eventually trading with Earth-based societies.
I don't know how long developing such a society would take, but it'll likely be started by people nearly everyone else considers lunatics. Something like Mars One should be a rehearsal for later attempts at colonizing space itself, without a planet under your feet.
