Destroy Planet? (Y)es (N)o

As much as it shames me to say it, some days my cursor lingers over the Yes button far longer than it should. Today, the human race was spared because of my friends and loved ones, Macs, and caffeine. The list is usually much longer, but today not even porn makes the cut.

Dear Mankind,
Please do not misinterpret a general feeling of goodwill toward your species as a lack of willingness to reduce the great majority of your civilization to ashes.

Make you that Mars base??? It's MY base, buddy!

Oh, unless you were volunteering to be building materials, in which case I accept. ;-)

What about your friends starring in a porno with your loved ones, while using Macs, and hopped up on caffeine?

Oooo, oooo, pick me! :)

Your spot on the "Coolest People in the Universe" list was already secured, but now it's etched in stone. :-)

Flattery will get you everywhere.

And now your journey to the Dark Side is complete, my young apprentice.

Since we're neighbors....
Since we're neighbors...on Mars anyway...I'll help you build yours if you help me build mine.

My defense systems for my new Red Dirt Prairie home (and nuclear-powered Agrifacility dome) will only shoot low level laser light and paintballs in the range of your base...if you'll spare me from your nanohazard weapons and other defenses. ;)

Re: Since we're neighbors....
Thanks for mentioning that! I've got a copy of your genome on file, so I'll make sure you're on the filter list for the "aggressive" nanobots. If there's anyone else you need added, just send me a blood sample and retinal scan (for redundancy) and I'll get it taken care of.

On a quasi-serious note, regardless of whatever else may happen, if by some chance we do end up actually moving to our respective Mars territories you are officially invited over for tea. :-)

Re: Since we're neighbors....
Hey, wait a minute! I just re-read your comment and realized that you threatened to shoot paint balls at my Mars habitat!

Well bring it, sister! Just for you, I'm going to install a rubber band cannon the likes of which Mars (and Marz, for that matter) has never seen! Yes, the Red Planet will shudder at the devastating barrage of little rubbery vengeance!!! MWAHAHA!!!

Re: Since we're neighbors....
heh heh heh - I was just joshin' ya anyway. The low level laser light will be like a photonic telephone - a little invention I'm cooking up now - long distance calling without the wires for sparsely populated areas - from a high tower to compensate for the severe curvature of the little planet. The paintballs are just for fun - I figure if they have a gun that will shoot paintballs over acres of land, then I'm gonna try to hit *something* with it.

After tea we can squeegee the side of your habitat off...and then I'll cook veggie stir-fry for all of you (since most of what I'll be eating are vegetables - not really good to have too many livestock in a agridome unless it's absolutely MASSIVE - which it won't be for many years after I get there - oh wait...maybe I can channel the methane byproduct of cattle for fuel...hmmm...*rummages around in the brain for invention ideas*...so much to do....

I'm there! Since tacit is likely to be around, I'll just retask the orbital rubber band cannon toward his lair. :-)

BTW, have we been reading Robert Zubrin? He's the president of the Mars Society (http://www.marssociety.org), and wrote "The Case for Mars", which explains (in great detail) "Mars Direct", a plan to put a permanent society on Mars affordably using current technology. It's fascinating stuff, and became the major basis for NASA's current reference mission for Mars. Sadly, in typical NASA fashion they've watered it down and stretched the time frame out to an absurd degree, but the plan is still viable.

Where was I? Oh yeah. Something that he mentions echos your statements- that meat and livestock are luxuries that a Mars habitat simply wouldn't be able to support for a long time. Personally, I can deal. I loves me some meaty vittles, but I'm a big fan of soy-based food as well.

Sorry, i mispoke(err typed) but remeber that we had a deal involving you blowing up/destoying the planet and me living on YOUR mars base. 1 question though, do i get to bring anybody(with your approval) or are you choosing everyone that goes there with no outside assistance?

As long as either Kim approves *or* she lets us take nekkid pictures of her, we're cool. ;-)
