    Then check out this organization. Seems intense, but they really seem to want to save us all! Pretty good ideas too, oh, and look at their timeline, that's cool too.

    No. In fact, in a weird way, I'm looking forward to it.

    Well if civilization does not collapse soon, I am going to be pissed about caching firearms for no reason.

    Then again, there's always a reason to collect a cache of firearms.

    Both.

    But I'm also afraid (and extremely saddened) to see the real issues being sidelined for trivial ones.

    Very cool! One tickett please.

    Miniaturzation and optimization of materials such as diamonoid structures, nanotube based electronics and power generating capabilities is the only way to bring the cost of getting all of this hardware into space down though. It's going to be a while before we see people leaving the planet with hopes of a new life somewhere among the cozmos. If the stupid ass earthlings would stop fighting and work towards a common goal it would happen alot faster though.

    What do you think?

    P.S. I'm signing up on the benign self ownership boat as opposed to the China Dragon Express. Have a nice day!

    Man-made Apocalypse sounds better. Then, we can blame it on someone.

    And besides, whatever "natural disaster" that's going to happen in the future is probably due to human intervention, so in the end, it's our fault anyhow.

    Seems George Bush doesn't like it, so I'm all for it.

    Some of the links on the quotes don't seem to work? The goals seem a bit out of reach too ....

    So, what exactly does on sign up for?

    Besides, what's the difference between being on a space shuttle and being on Earth? It's the same people, surely eventually there'll appear a hierarchy, power pattern, and eventually crime, unsatisfaction, envy, etc etc it just seems to be prolonging the problem.

    Besides, the way things are going disasters are getting ever more dramatic. It used to be something as trivial as a Mongolian hun invasion. Then we got bioweapons. Then nuclear. I bet antimatter is next. Imagine a minor little antimatter explosion splitting the Moon in half or something. What's next, supernovae? Paul Dixon seems to think so. And then what? A human-triggered Big Crunch?

    Still, I've always wanted to be a spaceman. I'd be the first in line.
