I'm With Stephen Hawking On This One.

“It is important for the human race to spread out into space for the survival of the species,” Hawking said. “Life on Earth is at the ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by a disaster, such as sudden global warming, nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus or other dangers we have not yet thought of.”

I stepped around a bug the other day instead of treading upon it and that made me think of a bumper-sticker that reads something like “the Earth does not belong to man – man belongs to the Earth” which I think might be a Chief Seattle quote or something and anyhow all of this got me thinking that that if kitten spleens were suddenly found to have a property that enabled human beings to travel interstellar distances in the blink of an eye I would be all for using up all available kitten spleens to get us onto another planet.

No Kittens Were Harmed in the Posting of this Post
