All this, and we are WHERE?

In my pocket I carry with me a device that combines devices that twenty ayears ago would’Ve required me to carry a large suitcase with me. Or a ladderwagon.

A video camera, a photo camera, a computer, a music player, a small TV, a gaming console, a voice recorder, a telefone and I can send text and multimedia messages to other people too!!

And we are still depending on OIL? With the same basic engine design from more than a hundred years ago? REALLY?? We have Star Trek Technology (partially) and we still rely on that sort of technology? What are we retarded?

We put a man on the moon for cryin’ out loud! Which brings me to another issue…

Humanity had a chance to change it’s ways back in 69. Not because of the drugfest at woodstock.
The moonlanding you fraktards!

As soon as the first image of earth from the moon appeared, so small, so tiny and fragile – mankind should’ve sat down and said “You know what? All our differences, skin colors, ethnicities, cultures and religions – Frak it! We are ONE people.”
They failed.
There was another chance. When Voyager (one or two, I don’t remember) beamed back the image of earth only “a spec of dust suspended in a sunbeam” (to quote Carl Sagan), mankind should’Ve sat on their asses and realize – what ever our difficulties, frack that shit! We are insignificant critters on an insignificant planet in an insignificant solarsystem, in an insignificant galaxy. Our problems with one another don’t mean shit!

What happened?? We still have racism! White cops shoot black unarmed teens, SEVERAL TIMES. More racism arises in the aftermath! WHAT???
Cavemen didn’t behave so stupidly!
If at least the people would fight over meaningful stuff – food, water, land – but because of race? Because they think someone elses fairygodfather has a bigger dick? BEcause of fracking OIL???
REALLY??

Okay, here’s my challenge – BEHAVE LIKE ADULTS!

Just because someone is of another “race”, ethnicity, sexuality, religion – is not reason to hate someone. Is not reason to kill someone. Y’all are behaving like little kids who want someone elses sandcastle instead of building your own.

And if you’re participating in the ALS IceBucket challenge – GIVE SOME FUCKING MONEY! Donate! And send the bucket of ice water to thirsty kids in Africa, you numbnuts!
Seriously, you’re all behaving like little kids, retarted little kids. (no offense to actually mentally handicapped people!)

Here’s my challenge, accept it, or leave my planet.
A.

Let’s go to Mars…

Doctors think that a round trip to mars and back is too risky to ever send a human being.

Background radiation, coronal emissions, thus cancer, bone atrophy, etc.

Not to mention all the hazards of being that far away from earth.

If today’s health & safety fetish would’ve been present back in 1491  – the american continent would’ve remained undiscovered until we sent technologies there. Unmanned transoceanic probes.

Or back in the 1960s, no small step for a man, not even the thought of a leap for mankind. “Too dangerous!”

The future of mankind lies out there.
Not only because we fuck this planet over in the worst possible way, but because it is a simple fact! Suppose we get our shit together, no wars, poverty eliminated, hunger and thirat sated…eventually we need to spread to new areas. And those lie out there.
Period.

And it will be the brave and the bold who will go, take small steps to make giant leaps.

So, yes. Doctors say that going to mars will be too risky, and I say one day some dude (or gal) will go, live there for a time, return and have healthy babies afterwards.
Just to prove that doctors should shut their mouths sometimes.

In that respect, live long and prosper,
to boldly go, where no man has gone before.

Take care,
A.

In silence, peeking between two shallow clouds like pale veils in the sky, the marbled white marble spies through the intricately woven canvas of darkened, green and yellow leaf work. Down upon a world turning away beneath it, towards an uncertain future.

Crisp eve’s air tells of winters fast approach with bouquets fallen apart, releasing faint remains of individual scents into the crystal clear night.

Soon, all too soon, coated in fine, thin white, the blades, petals, leaves and fruit and seeds will be as crisp as the air itself. Dying, dead and forgotten, but also nursing and nourishing the spring…

Jumping from Space

(please note: most of this stuff was written shortly after the SpaceJump…btw: any productnames that AREN’T real by this day, I hereby claim intellectual ownership of the name!)

Since Felix Baumgartner’s spacejump I concluded, Apple should jump the trend of corporate space exploration.

Since RedBull has a better space program than NASA or ESA – at least people wise – I’m convinced with all the money Apple has, it could come up with even greater stuff for future generations, and the Hipsters can say “I liked space before it was cool!” (to which all the trekkies out there will reply with the Vulcan hand greeting “No, WE liked space before it was cool”).

But seriously.

If apple went to space they could have all kinds of cool Apple branded shit floating around. Their spacestation (for wealthy tourists) could be called iSpace or iOrbit, and communication with earth is done via iTalk.

Their version of a shuttle will be the iFly.

They even could take over SETI and smuggle it in the background of iTunes, the feature cannot be turned off and will be called iAlien. It sorts through the space signals, much like Seti, but the user will never know whether his computer helped in finding shit. The iAlien will also be included in all Apple products that have an internet connection: iPod, iPad, iPhone.

But I digress.

The toilet aboard iSpace will be designated iCrap, right before you go on a space walk in the apple branded and designed spacesuit iWalk.

You can also reach the new mothership via a space elevator called the “iLift”.

BUT!

This is only the first station along the way to deeper space. Commercial lunar colony “iMoon” will be the next step along the way to “iMars”. Air supply in all of these stations will be called “iBreathe”, and in the greenhouses of the stations on Moon and Mars they have iTrees, that grow iFood!

First Apple has to sponsor another crazy man jumping from the edge of space and call the event “iBasejump”.

Where and when was it conceived that Corporations should go into space? Especially corporations that would take REAL exploration and commercialize it?

RedBull would have cameras EVERYWHERE, and life broadcast every thing that happens on the RedBull spacestation via their own TV channels. Apple would call everything “i-“, as showed above. “Hey we found an unusual rock in the plains of mars, we call it the iRock”. Their logo feces would be smeared EVERYWHERE.

If this continues, soon we’ll have a commercial spacestation called “iSpace” orbiting earth in the shape of bitten apple, waking the unnerving feeling of a deathstar pointed at earth in some of us.

Why do the US cut NASA’s budget into little bits and spends a multitude of that money on fucking airconditioning in the fucking desert?

Just the airconditioning! Not war assets or something, just the fucking airconditioning! You know, if it’s too hot – DON’T GO THERE! Drop your bombs and sod off.

No we leave space exploration to corporations.

You can map out where these corporations will settle on mars already! Some Linux/Unix corporation will camp inside Olympusmons, not only might some still present geothermal heat provide power for them, but the mountain shields them from radiation – which will come down to Mars’ surface since there ain’t a Magnetosphere – plus, they will not have to build any Windows …

Hard competition at Olympus Mons with fucking apple who would rename the mountain for the “iMars” station into “iVolcano”…

Redbull would stage races in the asteroidbelt together with NASCAR, just for shits and giggles.

Operating from their Martian Orbital jumping station.

I can totally see RedBull hogging shit from the Red Planet in heart beat. Just as I can see Apple smearing its Brand logo in the rusty red martian sand.

Now the only corporation hellbent on settling on Venus – a planet so inhospitable we named it after the goddess of love – will be Microsoft.

Why?

Because they love harsh conditions.

Windows IS a harsh condition!

The first three attempts to land a probe will end in the thing freezing up, the fourth and fifth will veer off course the sixth, seventh and eighth will burn up and/or crash the ninth, as they are settling for just a lunar colony, will be a triumphant success. Everything will go on just like that.

Meanwhile NASA and ESA will announce that they have discovered a new fuel and promptly get sued by apple because the molecular structure of that fuel looks like an iPad.

Samsung and Google wont bother with the Inner Solarsystem and go right for a cutting edge base on planetoid Pluto.

Just watch out for the Apple Mothership in the shape of a bitten-off Apple, because our fears were correct – it IS a deathstar…
