The only long term hope for our...errr...my species, is getting off
planet. Thinking otherwise is simply being short-sighted.

BTW, I'll bet you that within our lifetimes the word lunatic will
undergo a complete reversal in meaning. Just so's ya know, I plan on
living a long time. Bet accordingly.

Sorry, the idea was found to be lunatic:

Colonizing space is not the same as the shuttle program. Colonization
means permanent bases in the Moon or elsewhere.

But don't worry, Bush was bull****ting...

I bow to your mastery of the self-marginalizing post. A truly
innovative way of promoting something to insure nothing happens.
Kudos!

Don't worry, I'll make science and reason prevail. The Christians are
the main obstacle to progress:

That's true, but they do believe in whatever a Republican president
tells them.

Did Bush say if we would explore the whole Universe or just a couple
of planets?

To be politically correct, the problem is not the Christians that ride
bikes, but that most of the Christians are older folks or couch
potatoes that don't vote about progressive issues. They mostly care
about keeping homosexuals, prostitutes and drug addicts in the closet.

If they hear that I propose Dutch liberal democracy, they'll freak out.

Just the planets that might have oil.

By linguistic definition, anyone who travels to the moon (aka Luna) is a
Lunatic.

True. Never mind the fact that you need life to have oil and that
transportation --particularly large oil tankers-- may have a problem
navigating in space.

As you watch the clip above, Bush announces the "exploration of the
solar system," so the Moon is only the first step. Some "experts" lead
you to believe that you can find "valuable resources," but THEY NEVER
TELL YOU HOW TO SHIP IT BACK. A British accent makes sound serious.

You've never fallen off your "bike" and gone boom? The "thing" that
makes "you" fall down and not up is called 'gravity'. That's what
they'd use to for the "return trip". I believe it's free, "but" I'm
not sure.

Only if the Moon rubs off on them.

used as an adjective-forming suffix with the particular senses “having
