good work, Johnno.
I walked past the scientology headquarters on Friday. bizarrely they're in the cannon street area!
Maybe we could build a massive space ladder out of all the stupid ideas in L Ron Hubbard's brain. I think it would stretch far enough.
The ScientLOLogy episode along with the Mormon ones are possibly the funniest things i have ever seen on TV.
The new one with Cartman fighting a Midget. Fried Gold
but, a bit unrealistic at the moment.
god i love scientology so much.
his attitude is a typical bury-your-head-in-the-sand response. fucking this planet up? don't worry kids, by the time we get to a point where it's no longer liveable, we'll have the technology to just move to another one! great!
but not a solution to global warming.
the way we're going at the moment - we're just fucking up the planet, and in general no one gives *that* much of a shit, therefore, we'll have to find other places to live. eventually. it's in our nature. such as colonialism. yes, i went there.
if we just died out, really.
my mind is split by this
he is kinda right and it may be burying YOUR head in the sand to imagine we can save our planet by slowing down or stopping the fucking-up-ness rather than building glass domes or interplanetary travel
however, the west would have to give up a lot more in order to be able to afford interplanetary travel than it would to save the planet by going green
spend more on developing interplanetary travel. purely for jingoistic sakes. or something along those lines.
Ultimately, he will be right. The ice caps are basically gone. All we can do now is deccelerate the effects.
Scientology is hilarious.
yeah, the planet is fucked. But I would imagine that the planet is going to be completely fucked sooner than humans will be able to live on other planets.
which, is why it's all a bit retarded. but essentially he's not really wrong.
in the sense that there IS nowhere else to go. it's his retarded scientology beliefs of intergalactic space cruisers that's making him talk such twaddle, not any actual knowledge of the solar system. nowhere can support human life without massive terraforming that is only theoretically possible!
john travolta = stupid.
but, how do you know there's nowhere else to go? we all know little about the WHOLE universe. so, while obviously he's 'slightly' deluded about the whole 'we'll just move planets' thing - in theory, he is correct. we COULD go and find another planet to live, but the realisticness of that is........ nearly zero.
once we overcome our inability to break the speed of light, we're be sorted!!
has a bearing on what you're saying.
there are no planets in our solar system capable of supporting vast amounts of human life.
save sending generation ships (wikipedia it if you don't know what i mean) to other star systems, which wouldn't actually help anyway, there's no way we'll find magical earth-like planets to live on. THIS is our planet, and we have to try and save this one. there is nowhere to run to.
BUT i'm saying that the idea that one day we may have to find somewhere else to live, is kinda feasible. because, we're human. and selfish. and most likely won't look after our planet.
you asked me how i "knew" there was nowhere to go.
and we don't know anyway. there could be like, an invisible planet near us with super machines so we can't detect the mass of it with our pitiful human machines.
ALL HAIL XENU, GALACTIC OVERLORD! HE WILL CRUSH THE UNBELIEVERS!
it's the ONLY reason for those odd feelings i have that are not happiness.
unless i've had my morning bowl of thetans with milk. TASTY MILK.
anyway, a planet so wonderous that it had to be hidden would be quite well protected by big alien guns.
there will be a planet out there that is suitable for us to live on. there are so many stars that i cannot see this being the case, sadly it is likely to be very very far away and we would not be able to get there in a suitabel time with suitable equipment for building a home, not until we have more than wrecked this planet anyhow.
that this weirdo might be right in saying he's not sure if there's a way we can save our planet.
But there he is! In the picture - posing with a jumbo jet. HIS jumbo jet. His personal one, that he keeps at his house.
Yeahh....suuuuure....maybe he's got a point...
