Man Booted From Southwest Flight and Threatened With Arrest After Critical Tweet

slugstone Re:LOL, (928 comments)

I (an American) just went on a vacation where I entered Russia, then France, then Russia, then the US on my way home. It went like this:

Russia: "What plane did you get off of?" "OK, [stamp]"
France: "Welcome! [stamp]"
Russia: "Welcome back, Tovarish! [stamp]"
US: "Spread 'em, Cocksucker. What's this in your bag? Get in this line - no, the other line! Papers, please! Is this your family? Who packed your suitcase? Look into the camera. Make your wife look into the camera. Submit to bacterial scanning. Put your bags in the X-Ray machine and leave them there until they start to smoke. OK, Meatwad, we'll let you in, but consider this a warning!"

This place has gotten so xenophobic it's silly.

I am sure you are going to be booted from the country soon. :-(

Robots Will Pave the Way To Mars

slugstone Re:Ad astra per aspera (95 comments)

Water. Side note, we are traveling in space. With getting water from an asteroid we then would not have to launch it from earth. Water is one of the major components of rocket fuel.

Blackberries can be controlled

Indeed! In our back yard, they are losing the battle against the ivy and bamboo! :)

Are you sure that your bamboo is not knot-weed? Knot-weed is not a bamboo but another invasive species.

slugstone Re:Ethical is irrelevant. (402 comments)

Just because the government says I want to go to Mars does not mean I want to go to Mars. And how would you know what I want or am I being forced?
