I'd say exploited Luke and NAB are the nicest guys here.

Saz also has a lot of genuine compassion for others though he likes to hide it sometimes.

There is that finite thing again. There is no perpetual expansion of anything here on earth anyway.. Except for maybe the universe itself.

Both ideally. This is something we should be throwing gobs of money at. Of course, that's far too forward-looking for politicians worried about election every 2 years, every 4 years, or every 6 years.

We need a global, mostly benevolent, dictatorship. I volunteer for the position.

That's been tried many times in the past, but people suck at playing God.

It's never been tried. Not once.

What we should really do is declare a finders keepers policy. We f**k went to the moon, it's ours. Should really speed up the race for the rest of the unclaimed rocks in the solar system (which will be ours in short order).

Should write a letter to trump about this, seems right up his alley.

Honestly, every day I'm amazed at how little you know. For the vast majority of human history people have been ruled by monarchs or dictators of one sort or another who claim divine right and rule as if they are indeed divine. This is still true I'm many places, like north korea.

Hand him the crown spacemonkey.

Not sure that's correct. Ask the Egyptians.

Dylan specifically called for a "global, mostly benevolent, dictatorship".

We've never had one. Never been tried.




...Seriously, guys? :)) C'mon.

The Mongols wanted to establish a global "dictatorship." Same with Rome. I don't think you can argue it hasn't been tried.
