dudes
remember how last month nasa crashed a rocket into the moon?
apparently the preliminary chemical analysis of the dust plume created shows that it contained water.

how could the moon control tides without water, duh

sorry i guess that was redundant since obviously tides, menstruation, and werewolves are all kind of the same thing

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who in 1969 made his historic Apollo 11 moonwalk with Neil Armstrong, was pleased to hear the latest discovery, but still believes the U.S. should focus on colonizing Mars.

"People will overreact to this news and say, `Let's have a water rush to the moon,'" Aldrin said. "It doesn't justify that."

what, are you gonna punch them in the face if they say that? you old ass?

iiiijjjj, Wednesday, 18 November 2009 16:57 (twelve years ago) link

If you attempted to pee on the moon your urine would turn into steam the second it exited your body.

But that's not a problem if you're standing on the dark side. Hence the line in the closing track of Pink Floyd's famous album: "I'll pee here on the dark side of the moon".

buzz u r grossly overestimating the public's interest in space

itdn put butt in the display name (gbx), Wednesday, 18 November 2009 17:03 (twelve years ago) link

Another consideration is that the force of your micturation might be enough to cause your body to reach escape velocity in the moon's reduced gravity field. You could pee yourself into the oblivion of space, or if you're lucky, straight into the sun.

dudes there is gravity on the moon it's just mad less cuz it's mass is mad less than earth's
also since i wrote this i have become familiar that there is mad water in space, at first i was like woah dude water how and then when i started to look around more there's a shit ton of hydrogen and as the elements evolve getting more electrons and shit it aint that far to oxygen and blammo electrostatic forces and there's the water which likely freezes pretty soon after that making particles that then are set to acquire more mass as more particles stick to that one and soon enough blammo earth

xp Ok sure we can call dolphins and chimps intelligent but I think it's unquestionable that our intelligence is of a different order to the other mammals on the planet. Some of them have self-awareness and awareness of other minds but they don't have language, and they don't have that curiousity about themselves and about the universe that drives us to create and discover.

maybe dolphins once had vast cities and rode in spaceships but noticed it was all a bit rubbish and renounced it all (this is sort of the douglas adams theory i think)

Symphony are good for what, exactly? Testing, also?

How do we know dolphins aren't cognizant of multiple physical dimensions, and spend all their time telepathically communicating with intelligent pan-dimensional entities that we will only discover with artificial intelligence in 2100?
