Lets say sometime down the road the colonization of the moon was in full force. If you had the oppurtunity to be apart of the groups of civilians going there, would you drop your life on Earth to go? Though, If you do choose to go and find out that moon life isn't your thing, you can not just hop on the next space shuttle to Earth.

This is a hypothetical situation, posting things debunking this situation like "An average person would not have the chance to go to the moon" is frowned upon.....in this establishment!

I would go, yes. Just seeing the earth from the moon's perspective would be enough for me to go.

Absolutely yes. I'd have to find a new job, though, since I can't do any archaeology on the moon.

Everyone knows the moon people didn't leave any traces.

If it meant lots of space sex, then yes I would.

I'd rather go to Mars, though. I wanna be the first person to discover a new species. And fuck it.

No. People haven't shown they deserve a second chance at inhabiting a planet by the way they've continually treated this one.

yes assuming id still have the freedom i do now as in i dont have to follow a strict routine or something and i guess my majors would still work out there as an electrical engineer(cause everything uses electricity)

imagine cranking an amp on the moon

I would imagine that you wouldn't just be able to call home anytime so if i could go w/ my family, then sure.

But i wouldn't be the first wave, lol. I'd rather a few people go and live there for a couple months before i go so it's bug-proof xD
G(g)od was like: "Make you an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch."

And i was like: "What's gopher wood?"

Did we bring equipment to support ourselves or do we have to go mining for moon resources?

I prove your point, how?

The moon is void of all life. If there's a place where not even environmentalists would care if we dump our trash, wouldn't it be a huge barren wasteland with not even bacteria living on it?

By suggesting that you've got the right to dump your shit/ruin something else that doesn't belong to you anyway, pretty much. It's pompous.

The technology is there that the colonization should go smoothly in theory. You've brought what people thought was needed, but obviously there could be some surprises unaccounted for.

To the person saying you could fap on others furniture, wouldn't you rather fap and see your man juices float off in space? Yes, the technology in which you stick your dick into something and your jizz goes from the indoor shelter to outside exists.

Moon, no. Mars, Yes. If Earth goes boom then the moon goes with it I believe.

Pretty much what I was thinking. Anyone else seen the craters on the moon?

Define "ruin".

I'd imagine billions of years of being bombarded with space-junk has "ruined" the moon a lot more than humans ever could, don't you think?

I'd visit the moon/other planets, but I wouldn't live there.

Unless it was like in Cowboy Bebop.

in that case, then maybe. i'm guessing that i won't be the only one doing that though, and soon we'd have some huge mass of semen orbiting us at some point

ru·in
   [roo-in]
noun
1.
ruins, the remains of a building, city, etc., that has been destroyed or that is in disrepair or a state of decay: We visited the ruins of ancient Greece.
2.
a destroyed or decayed building, town, etc.
3.
a fallen, wrecked, or decayed condition: The building fell to ruin.
4.
the downfall, decay, or destruction of anything.
5.
the complete loss of health, means, position, hope, or the like.


And the difference here is that the 'space junk' is there for natural order, not at the hands of humans who believe they can do whatever they want simply because they want to. Sure, you could argue that human existence and desire for progress is 'natural' as well, and I'd agree to a point, but the main conflict there is that humans haven't damaged what we have now simply by existing or progressing. There are reasonable limitations on both that should be observed before slipping into excess that is harmful to both us and our environment, and we as a species have consistently failed to find that.

So do I believe we should take another crack at it once this home we've got is ruined by our stupidity and over-progress without any real responsibility to ourselves or the repercussions of our actions? Absolutely not.

I think it's pretty arrogant to assume that anything humans do is above nature in any way.

Also, there is no such thing as natural order in outer space. Space is not some kind of delicate ecosystem that requires a balance between the plants, the sun, oxygen, minerals etc.

It's a huge bundle of chaos with gigantic rocks hurtling around spheres of gigantic nuclear explosions that last for billions of years with gigantic black holes capable of destroying everything around it and bending time and space by their sheer existance; do you honestly think that humans are capable of doing anything to "ruin" outer space?

Not at all.

It'll be like when people said "go to America!"

They did. And they lived in houses made of mud, which they had to build themselves. It'll be lots of manual labor, for very little, if any pay and won't be worth going there for at least ten years.

Ha, precisely. If anything, we're the ones that need protecting from space. At any given moment, there are thousands of things in the universe that could destroy this pitiful little rock we live on.


I just found out what are next war is going to be after we're done with the Middle East. The War on Space. Maybe then NASA will get some funding...
