    If life everywhere is as cheap as it has been on Earth, if Living Planets are a dime a dozen and Sentient Worlds are as common as cows, so what if we blow ourselves to hell? Who is going to give a fuck? But right now the only guarantee is that there is only one... what if wet rocks like Earth ARE rare. What if we're unique? :eek:

    Are you proud of

    Yourself?

    Your Kin Folk?

    Your Religion?

    How about Religious History?
    Your Race?

    Your Nation?

    Your Species?

    Your History?
    What if life IS cheap and Living Planets litter the cosmos like plankton bobbing on a warm ocean and Sentient Worlds are as common as boners in high school? Does that change what you want for your spawn?

    I've dug a small canal in my back yard and want to fill it with "time capsules".
    (What's the worst way to store toxic chemicals? I'll see if I can find anyone who worked for the the Hooker Chemical Company, they might know).

    This O/P sounds like an indictment. I suppose it is... and we, as a species SHOULD be ashamed, but there is also so much for Earthlings to be proud of that shouldn't be lost on any subsequent discussion.

    'Politics' suck but life is cool and, especially considering the known alternatives, here and now are a fine time and place to be spending my life sentence.

    Air Conditioning and The Internet Rock! :rock:

    :eusa_think: if I live long enough, I may just get to see Momma's Little Bastards begin their reach for the stars.

    We are noting but micro-organisms living on a clump of mud stuck on the bottom of someone's shoe. Everytime they raise their foot to walk, we see light. When they step down - darkness. Sooner or later they will stop to change their shoe and we will be fucked. Hope they are careful where they walk. Once they stepped into a mud puddle and it flooded our world and damn near wiped out everything on our clump of mud.
