Asses To The Future

Yet again, a story that has outlived its usefulness, this time in what calendrites once called 2006 :

The survival of the human race depends on its ability to find new homes elsewhere in the universe because there's an increasing risk that a disaster will destroy the Earth, world-renowned scientist Stephen Hawking said Tuesday [June 13, 2006].

Only this time the story is more friendly because there's more to it than the familiar we own this motherfucker and anybody who gets in the way is gonna get what's coming to 'em approach. God save our land, glorious and free...

Canadian Space Agency officials are hoping a Canadian will be part of an international team that could be living on the moon within 20 years... The project involves drilling holes on the moon, "Why not!" exclaims Alain Berinstain, the Canadian Space Agency's director, "in Canada, we're good at making holes in the ground and bringing stuff up ... we do that already every day and we do it well..."

NASA must be banking on the fact that we have a genetic pre-disposition for settling near oil patches, tar sands and off-shore deposits. Just so they know, however, the off-shore variety might be difficult to find on the Moon.
