So cool. I hope they get

So cool. I hope they get those commercial spaceflights going while I am still in good enough health. I would trade my house to go see that in person just once. 

If, if a white man puts his arm around me voluntarily, that's brotherhood. But if you - if you hold a gun on him and make him embrace me and pretend to be friendly or brotherly toward me, then that's not brotherhood, that's hypocrisy.- Malcolm X

Being in outer space must be

Being in outer space must be one of the coolest things to experience. I'm fascinated by it and scared at the same time.

My dream is to smoke a fat

My dream is to smoke a fat joint in space. Too bad that if I can ever do it it'll be because I'm about to die (smoking is very bad for air circulation systems and noone would allow it under normal circumstances). But it'd still be awesome.

i would like to fuck weightlessly in space.  arthur c. clarke discuss sex in zero gravity in a couple of his odyssey books.  sounds hot.

clarke was a cool old motherfucker.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

I figured it wouldn't be easy, if even possible. But I'd be up for trying.
