I’m not surprised that in general people are against space exploration. Pretty much without fail, in all times and places, people have been against exploration if it were non-colonial in nature.
Except in rare cases like the Polynesians and their highly unusual culture, humans just really aren’t that curious or that enterprising in general.
Space exploration might be a dead end. Might be worthless, pointless, and without any merit at all. But the thing is…you don’t know until you go.
I really like millennial and Gen Z humor. The absurdist dada yet warm nihilism is innately appealing to me.
It’s kind of petty and mean, but the third or fourth reason I want to work out more and get buff again is because it’ll make the Fat Acceptance/Celebration types angry.

Because she is very rich, she had nice and futuristic stereo equipment.
We have minimum ages for candidates. Trump and Congress show we need an age cap, too.
Glad I’m not the only one who has noticed that people who should rightly be in nursing homes shouldn’t be making important decisions that will effect those not so senescent long after the geezers have departed this existence.
Lower the voting age to 16 and legislate the maximum age to run for office of 65.
Oh, look at this. I want this a lot.
I am thinking about buying it. My current phone (which was about the smallest one you could get at the time) is no longer sold. I’d love one even smaller.
