Rat’s lawyer probably told him to include the “hot burning gas” part.
“Yes, yes. Aim for the sun. That way if you miss, at least your arrow will fall far away, and the person it kills will likely be someone you don’t know.”
Oathbringer, by Brandon Sanderson.
You can get the hot burning gas without reaching for the stars.
Actually, their personal security will likely be on you like flies on, um, poop, and their lawyers will be after you, as well.
And I know the sky might be high / But baby it ain’t really that high / And I know that mars might be far / But baby it ain’t really that farLet’s reach for the stars
Keep your feet on the ground.
Between helium depletion and reduced radio-activity we’ll be lucky to get a couple of million more years out of our own star…
“The sun is a miasma of incandescent plasma.”
“Reach for the Stars” … what a great game that was.
Ah, the unpleasantness of reality….
Rat some of us have short arms ;-( ……. Croc Power !
They also light years away. So you are not reaching one anytime soon.
Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars. (Casey Kasem weekly top 40)
I have a car thermos that has a sticker with “Do not use while driving, do not remove this sticker”.
Just like a lot of Hollywood stars.
Reach for it, but you better not actually get one!
Kasey Kasem hates you, Rat.
Rat the prophet of inevitably impending ill-fated irreversible doom.
Werner Von Braun wrote an autobiography titled “I Aim For the Stars.”
Someone quipped that the subtitle should be “But Sometimes I Hit London.”
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you land among the stars. Where you slowly suffocate and die.
I’ve actually HAD hot, burning gas, that made me feel like I WAS dying.
Ah, yes. There’s a downside to everything.
In truth reaching for the stars is good exercise. Except one might wonder why you’re exercising in the middle of the night, on a space ship that’s about to melt. Or something.
Me, I hate those pointy corners.
But, I think it is OK to swing on them…
Who cares about a couple of million more years … we will be lucky if society even exist for another fifty years!
If you reach for the stars, better wear oven mitts!
Rat, you would put the late Casey Kasem to shame.
Burning no. Gas no, not exactly, it’s a form of gas called a plasma.
If we did find another planet with life forms similar to our own; and if we went there; and if the indigenous life forms of that planet didn’t want us there and asked us to leave: wouldn’t that make us illegal aliens?
I LOVE RAT! What a realist.
This is an old Dilbert cartoon (15-20 years ago) with Wally telling Asok, “It’ll burn your hand clean off!”
not only will this kill you it will be horribly painful the entire time
Ad astra per aspera!
Rat is so inspirational! How could anyone follow another?!
