    Seeing that America came to be with thoughts exactly like those Kel is thinking (peace and all better things through unity not division) this is kinda funny :D

    Kel is pissed because deep down he knows that never again will a Canadian hockey team win the Stanley Cup. ;)

    And a one world government won't change that.

    Mars is the obvious first colony. Within 20 years we could have people living there and if we started today, we could walk on it's surface with nothing more than an oxygen mask in 75 years (And within 1000 years we wouldn't even need that). My sources for these speculations come from several credible scientists that collaborated for a 3 hour Discovery channel special.

    A democratic world government that grants more power to regional leaders (The Earth would of course be divided into provinces) than it does to the supreme ruler. This solves the problem of enforcing your cultural and political beliefs on other people and having others force theirs on you.

    And Frankly I don't care about Canadian teams winning the cup, I care about the Canucks winning it though!

    The Discovery Channel is to good science what Scotland is to good weather.

    Do you know what would happen if in 75 years you stepped outside of a space vehicle with just an oxygen mask on?.. you'd be dead in the time it takes you body to hit the red dust. If you're not wearing a pressure suit your insides would be in the very worst way trying to get outside of your body. That's because the atmospheric pressure on Mars is quite a bit less than your blood pressure... ie, your eyes pop out of your skull and the rest of you escapes through mouth, nose, ears, and asshole... any moisture would immediately evaporate.

    This is basic physics stuff you should already know.
    If the next thing you're going to tell me is something along the lines of "terraforming" Mars... then be prepared to get another physics lesson. Don't watch shit programming on the Discovery Channel and expect to be well informed.

    The atmospheric pressure would be negated within 75 years, that's what I'm saying. If we started melting Mars' Ice caps now (Which are mostly CO2, and would thus produce a atmosphere), as well as started moving carbon-producing industry there, there would be enough of an atmosphere to have reasonable pressure.

    And of course credible scientists on a mainstream news outlet are always wrong when they disagree with you (Note the sarcasm).

    Terraforming really isn't that far off. It's entirely possible, just like an actual space elevator (Which some people still seem to think is a funny idea). The main thing holding us back from building these things are people like you who think they are impossible and thus wouldn't possibly vote for someone with these agendas.

    I'm mad that I let someone convince me that the French Foreign legion wasn't created by the French army :(

    The stupid bus I usually get home from work never showed up :mad:
    I finished work just after 6pm, the bus is supposed to come at 25 past but didn't show so I ended up waiting for an hour after I finished work till I got a taxi home. The next bus would of been at 7.25 if that one was on schedule.
    I'm raging at the bus company. I tried phoning the station but got an answering machine saying they finish at 6 which is no good to me :(
    And then after I get home I managed to bend my thumb nail back so that is hurting me now :(
    AAAARRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh... somehow I've read "I'm mad that I let someone concieve me" >.o

    Anyway I hate UiO and SiO for making me wait ages for some very important information!

    I've just spent 4 days clearing some badly overgrown land, and i now have more than a hundred assorted bites and stings crammed into the space between my wrists and mid biceps. There's so many i've lost track of which one's are from wasps, which from nettles and which are from unidentified sources. I know i should have worn long sleeves, but it was so hot. I have dozens of scratches from brambles and gorse too. It itches like crazy and is driving me nuts!

    Rant (rated PG 18):



    I HATE college lecturers. **** them. **** them all and f them hard and UGH screw them all! Those arrogant, incompetent, infantile, worryless, planless, fat, dumb, lazy bastards!!! Go to hell, all of you!!
    Well, not all, but that one and the other. And if that wish is only fulfilled if all have to go to hell, then so be it!
    Gawd, how can anyone be so impudent, so unfair and at the same time so clueless?
    Seriously. **** them.

    Sorry.
