Tabloid journalism is just a less attractive black hole …
Aaaaand Oliver is brought crashing back down to Earth. By Joan Rivers’ thigh fat, no less.
What a wonderful piece of imagination! When I was young and my father was reading pulp science fiction, I really thought that by now we’d be finding out for ourselves what’s out there. Instead, we’ve regressed to unmanned probes.
Outstanding poetry….and yes there are wonders more wonderous. The Glory and love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Nice to see Oliver taking a break from his technical endeavors.
Reminds me of Calvin in outer space.
I do love it when BB goes into poetic mode.
And there’s Binkley with the perfect capper
Sorry for your disappointment, Diat60. In truth, the more science learns about what’s out there, the more ridiculous it sound when someone thinks colonies on other planets, or even the moon, are feasible for supporting human life without first installing trillions of $$ in off-Earth infrastructure to grow bacteria for food and manufacture water and oxygenated air. The current crisis at the space station over having our current enemy Russia rescue the workers currently stranded there. There will need be peace on earth.
Not sure if that’s a laughable anticlimax, or profound….
