  1. Funny, but sad, when the lyrics from a Sesame Street song makes more intellectual sense than yet another NASA boondoggle.

    If being on the moon is worth anything at all, beyond some vague wasteful and indefinable sense of “national purpose” and military strategy, the private sector will develop it.

    If you’re going to use pretensious Italian words, at least use the proper plural form: bariste
    😉

  3. OK, several billion pennies a day, but who’s counting?

  4. Ernie’s main argument for not living there is that his friends couldn’t come with him. Did they outlaw gay marriage on the moon already?

  5. Andy, that’s the way they spell it at my Starbucks. Blame them. I was quite content to order SMALL, MEDIUM, and LARGE without a translation dictionary.

  6. If the moon were made of gold it wouldn’t be profitable to go pick up the gold nuggets just laying around. There is no reasonable purpose for a lunar colony/presence. NASA should be sent to the back of the gravy train line for this asinine proposal.
