  1. That space travel diagram is depressing. Sometimes I think humans would just rather fight wars and kill each other off — or destroy the planet — rather than continue the wonderful journey into space that we began so long ago. I was so optimistic back then …

    • I used to be optimistic too PT. Hell, growing up with so many great changes underway, I was about the most optimistic person you could find! Sometimes I feel like I was set up…

    • Well then Loon, I guess you wouldn’t want me to remind you that we’re crawling around on the surface of what is, in effect, a very large space ship, which is whizzing around the sun at frightening speeds, while the sun is whizzing around the Milky Way at frightening speeds, which is itself whizzing through the universe at frightening speeds… :shock:

      I’d better just keep all that to myself! :lol:
