Journal Journal: Doritos doom human race.

Well, in what I can only think of as one of the most stupid ideas ever, some brainiac has decided to doom the human race. And the reason.... To advertise Dorito Corn Chips to aliens. A New Scientest article shows up about how some supposedly intelligent scientists don't think things through. http://space.newscientist.com/article/dn14130-first-space-ad-targets-hungry-aliens.html?feedId=online-news_rss20 "The EISCAT European space station on the Norwegian island of Svalbard sent the message using its array of radars. Those radars are normally used to study the Earth's upper atmosphere."
