No commentary needed.

Society on Mars.

20 July 2014 - 10:14 PM

In our lifetimes a human being will walk on Mars. It will be a great achievement for whoever does it and it will be the most important event of the decade. The colonization will begin, and then....what?

I actually applied for the Mars One program but stopped when they asked for a 70 dollar application fee. fug that. However its likely that those people will probably win the race to Mars. A "nonprofit" corporation. The entire point of going to Mars is starting over IMO. If we take inequality, war, poverty etc to Mars will be eventually destroy another planet, (after fixing it) and our stay will be short.

The other issue here is who gets to go? Let's say the Chinese put a man on Mars and build a colony. They declare that Mars is property of the Chinese and no other organization, Government or otherwise is allowed. Any incoming craft will be shot down. Obviously there is no precedent, so who knows what would happen.

Also, a trip to Mars will be expensive. If trips become privatized, the poor and middle class will never leave the Earth. Basically 99% of humanity will be stuck here. Mars would become a 1%er utopia while the Earth slowly turns into a steaming ball of poo.

The sad thing is that all of these could happen. We are so focused on going there is no real plan for what happens afterward.

I remember my first day of school. The year was 1997. So many different faces. I don't think I recognized "race" until the 2nd of 3rd grade, and I grew up in fuging ALABAMA. I admit that I'm guilty of it too but I really do believe that humanities infatuation with 1). Race 2)Skin Color 3) Religion etc will eventually fade away into our history.Too bad the World will be one steamy overpopulated ball of poo in 100 years. 

 


Why I will never work for a corporation again

03 July 2014 - 01:34 PM

So I got a little summer job working at a local grocery store. The job sucks, but I knew that going in but the bills have to be paid so I thought I would just solider on. Yesterday around 3 oclock I got a call from my boss that they needed me to come in because somebody else called out. "fug", because I had planned to spend yesterday at the library volunteering with some local teens. Whatever. Anyway I go in, and it turns out that not one, but two people have called out. What is supposed to be a three man job is now a two man job. Me and my equally pissed off coworker work our asses off for 6 straight hours, no break, no water, nothing but picking and stocking, only to be told "Thanks, you can go home now". CHING CHING. WHAT IN THE ENTIRE fug.

 

Imagine getting sent home 2 hours early after completely busting your ass just because they realized that they could save an entire 40 bucks by sending us both home. Rather or not I go to work today is a decision I still have to make. Its not just this incident I see GROWN MEN in the back, crying while smoking a cig. Seriously fug these people. I'll bite the bullet and take out a summer loan next year because this is ridiculous. /rant


When does football season "start" for you?

30 June 2014 - 11:38 PM

I don't doubt that most people will say that July is the absolute worst sporting month of the year. At least we have the World Cup this year but we all know team USA is going to get the poo beaten out of them (even if we're too riled up in our patriotism to admit it). Anyway for some people football season starts the first day of the first rookie training camp. For others it starts when the Regular season kicks off. For me? The Hall of Fame game, and believe it or not its right around the corner. What say ya'll?
