can we just leave the moon alone?

Am I the only one who is completely disturbed by NASA’s recent endeavor to find water on the moon? I seriously feel like I am in the Twilight Zone or at least that mortal chicky on Dark Shadows. I DON’T GET IT. And here’s why:

1. We are in recession. A RECESSION. Which means that we can’t just be galaxy gallivanting trying to find ice crystals of water on the damn moon. Do you know how much money it costs for a flight to the moon? And not just in 1st Class, I’m talking Coach-to-Crater…BILLIONS. Hmm, let’s see….instead of crashing a rocket into the moon, maybe we should put that money into the economy and, um, save people from getting canned from jobs that do a whole lot more for society than fuck around with the moon.

Also, we have issues here on Earth. Issue of EDUCATION, HEALTH CARE, COUNTRIES IN POVERTY, FAMILIES HERE, IN THE U.S. IN POVERTY. Who gives a shit about moon water?

2. Which brings me to point nummer zwei…Who the fuck wants to drink moon water? Would you trust water from the moon? I wouldn’t. Who knows what kind of alien demons poisoned that water with freaky extraterrestrial goo that looks normal to the human eye, but then once it hits our systems we instantly turn to dust and then everyone dies and the aliens take over and I’ll never live to see Gay Marriage get legalized. NO NO NO.

3. There’s this book called “Life as We Knew It” by Beth Pfeffer and in it, the moon gets hit by some sort of meteorite or something and the impact knocks the moon off its orbit. Then what happens? Oh, just your garden-variety of earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, extreme weather…all that good stuff that the moon controls. LUNAR CYCLES, people, COME ON. The moon controls everything. Crashing rockets into it for experimental value seems so stupid when you think of the damage that could be done. I would like to trust that NASA knows what they’re doing, but I just don’t. This disturbs me greatly.

4. Also, as a citizen of this Earth, do I get to vote on this? Do we get a say in what happens to the moon? It’s our fucking moon, for crying out loud, and I’m pretty sure I live on planet Earth – therefore anything that happens to the moon – anything that has the power to fuck up life as we know it – is something that I think we should be able to have a say in.

Yeah! I’m going to make T-shirts that say, “I SWOON FOR THE MOON,” or some shit.

  1. “Leave the moon alone!”…Chris Crocker

  2. Also really annoyed about what they are doing now. They’re taking of settling, and i think they said they found water or something. This greatly disturbing. We only have one moon, and quite honeslty, i expect nonthing less than it to be eventually stuffed. Go explore Venus, or Mars or some other other planet, but not the moon.

    Leave the bloody moon alone!
