Comment Re:Prison is more than punishment (Score 1) 914

I don't see how anyone could make it through this protocol and be functional let alone normal. How would you have meaningful conversations with anyone if your sense of time is so skewed that it takes a week to say a single sentence. This seems a lot like solitary confinement.

Exactly, we built stuff to fly us through the air, go fast on the ground, and dive beneath the waves. We're going to encounter problems going into space (and staying there) and we will overcome them. People said the human body may not be cut out for flying but we do it all the time now.

"The human body may not be cut out for space."

While this is true, and the lack of air being a BIG clue that we are not 'cut out' for space, we are also not 'cut out' for moving at 60 MPH, hurdling through the air at a few hundred MPH, or enduring pressure that would turn us into a fine red paste. We comparatively routinely do these things with cars, planes, and submarines.

Of course it's more secure! I also hear that DEATH is a great way to lose weight. Die, and the pounds just melt away!
