For me, this post provides the reality that colonization or mining ops will never happen. First, money or funding will never be sufficient. Second, habitability is just not possible for any real length of time. Consider the fact that there are no under ocean habitats that can sustain or provide for a civilization to thrive.

From my point of view, you just do not get it. The bottom line is not necessarily technology but funding. We can barely feed ourselves or provide access to reasonable medical care.



From what I have read it would only take about 5 males and 5 females to repopulate the earth. Why spend money to keep people alive past the point where they can reproduce? Keeping 10 billion people alive is quite a waste of resources.

Human extinction is more likely to occur within that 1,000 year window than not because homosapiens seem to be self-destructive entities that cannot get out off their own way.

I'd go with two males and eight females. I would say 1-9, but it's best to have a spare.

just saw a story on the web re a guy who got injured playing Wordle

he was kinna cheating, maybe not, he had one of those gigantic dictionaries next to him to help him find Wordle words

he pulled a muscle turning the pages of the dictionary

Doc told him he needs to go on the injured reserve list

he'll be out of Wordle action for at least 2 weeks - it's a terrible blow to his group of Wordle players______________(~:\



also, TV commercials and some programs have a new thing - somewhat new anyway

they show lots of fat women in skimpy outfits dancing around or otherwise attempting to appear seductive or alluring

yuck

Itís complicated. The majority of young/middle age American women are Ďfatí by most standards. And those women do buy the clothing the retailers are trying to sell. Turning off your demographic is not relevant. The Ďmodelsí are more like the actual consumers than the Ďmodelsí you and I want to see.

I went with five of each so the gene pool would not be so inbred. You are right that having more females would definitely speed up the process.

I'm on Long Island for the first time in seven years and have been driving around, seeing the many changes in storefronts and shops.
I pass a former sporting goods store and in its window is a paper sign that says SASA
LELE
I ask my sister what kind of store SASA LELE is, and she does no know what I'm talking about. Last night,we are driving past it, and she pulls over and looks at me like I have two heads. I look at the sign and have to laugh out loud.
It's actually two identical signs, side by side and reads SA SA on top
LE LE. on the bottom

I don't know about you, but I generally read side to side. not up and down.

I'm getting e-mails to get $1 off a Subway foot long sub. They used to be $5, but I haven't been in awhile but once, and they were near $10 at that mall. I went to Shake Shack and got a burger & fries & drink, it was over $22! I went to Chick-fil-a for the first time ever and spent nearly $15! Of course these interstate rest stops gouge everybody for everything. I think the 2 Hostess cupcakes for near $3 was ridiculous, I should have brought a dozen of my own from home.

Two weeks on the road has taught me how to use the FF apps to save significant money. MCDs seem to have 20% discounts across the board, and daily special offers. Get a Checkers receipt, fill out a survey and you can get a large sandwich, fries and a large soda for under $7. Taco Bell has web specials for about a third off, and an Arby receipt gives a code for a $1 sandwich.
Just order on their apps.

Next time i'm at the store, I need to remember to get some regular soap. A lady friend likes to stock the shower with these fancy soaps and body washes. It always feels like I have a layer of soap I can't get off. I know it's just oil or lotion, but I end up using more water because it feels like i'm still soapy. Though I'm not going to spend extra money buying any gimmicky niche soaps targeted towards men. Sasquatch...? Though I never compared the prices maybe it's not overpriced.

If the closet BK is $6 worth of gas away, it's probably 40 miles roundtrip. Walking, you'd need to stop and eat before you got there ;-)

Eating BK without a promo/coupon is as dumb as eating there in the first place. There is a free Whopper coupon on the back of every receipt. Take thirty seconds to fill out a survey and you get a meal for the price of a soda. I guess I'm ghetto, whatever that means.

One bar in my neighborhood is around $36/lb ($26/.75lb).
I expect other neighborhoods and places with nicer tableclothes to charge more.

I don't hit fast food that often, even less since I started this no red meat experiment a couple or so months ago, but when I have been in a fast food place the ones I see paying full price with no coupon or deal off their smart phones appear to be the ones who could least afford to pay full price.

Just my personal preference, perhaps as I use the misc thread quite a bit, but I usually like to put anything gambling related in its own thread. I figure it fits the site theme.

How to retire well, in three easy steps.

1) Spend less than you make.
2)Always be looking to make more money
3) Invest. You save for things; you invest to build wealth.

If there was a fourth step I'd say Remember there is no such thing as a free lunch. The nice folks at the credit card companies are not your friends, and those free flights come at a cost.

How do you retire at 20, live well and have fun until 40, and then work until you're elderly, then die. That's what I was more interested in.

A bit too late for that plan though I'm afraid

Just saw a video predicting their demise of McDonald's. 700 restaurants are insolvent and another 1600 may close because the minimum FF wage may go up to $22.50/hr in CA and VA. Some of these meal combos are getting over the $15 price point too. Buy expensive houses, expect expensive help.
Another video says to expect food prices to go up by at least 50% this summer over last summer, with some foods doubling in price.

Elizabeth Holmes starts her prison sentence today

she is one of the highest profile tech entrepreneurs to ever get jailed

her scam coupled tech with medicine - a device she falsely claimed could detect hundreds of diseases with just a few drops of blood

for a while and even after the charges she was a hero to some women who referred to themselves as "Holmies"

Subway had some good coupons until recently: three foot long subs for less than $20.00.

Her story never made any sense but everyone was afraid to say they couldn't see the spectacular rainments she was wearing.
Finally, someone noticed the Emperess had no clothes. She certainly inspired some people- the clown from CYDY comes to mind.
Just fake it until you can take it.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Prison rules are, she has to work a job and will make between 12 and 40 cents an hour.
There's no secret. Just know what you're talking about before you open your mouth.
