    Mining on the Moon

    I heard the Japs are sending some of there astronaut's (more than likely from Howick) to the Moon to follow in the footsteps of the yanks.

    Apparently this comes under the term "research" as they believe the Moon harbours valuable minerals That they could consider mining................WTF is up with this ? ...................If its true it would make me a bit worried about F%&king with something like the moon that we rely on as Meer earthlings.......

    Saw a bit on the News the other day that the Chinese are looking at putting people on the moon.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    As far as I know the yanks have laid a claim to owning the moon years ago as they were first there???
    So wont that mean they have to get permission form the yanks to do it??

    Probably sell it to the Chinese to pay off their debt.

    I wouldn't start panicking yet as the cost of recovery would make all of the minerals there to damned expensive back on earth. One day mankind will wake up and realise that all we really need for our survival is clean air, clean water, a sustainable food source greater efficiency around wasting less.

    Fuck me I just frightened myself as I sound like a bloody Greenie in this post
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Research continues.
