Once I was out in the country at my friends house and my dog and his dog got in a fight. I picked both dogs up and held one in one hand and the other in the other and held their faces close for a minute while they stared and shared the fear of what I had done because of what they were doing.
Then I threw them in opposite directions. They did not fight anymore.
It was better than the time I killed one of my dogs because he was in a fight.
What else are we to do with such dogs?

All of Earth will be like Las Vegas one day if we are wise, and lucky.

The Capitalist Imperative is the expanding market. What is it that space travelers could bring back to Earth, that would be worth the trip?
What do we bring home to our parents but love? To every nation outerspace is the high ground.
A religion that works in a submarine, and works in a spaceship, is a good platform.
Maybe hypocrisy is even healthy. There must be a place even for doubt about somethings.
Yes now we are on spaceship earth. A single man with two keys can punch a hole in it nowadays.
But it is not so much the one man making a bomb that matters, as all of us who do nothing but drift with our friends.
There are dogs and cats monkeys and pigs.
There is no shuttle named Ark.
There ideas that are the same as rocks.
Smallpox was wiped out but we saved some.
It is like saving ignorance. Imagine that you could not read.
Writing has never changed from anything but an inventory. Inventories and budgets are needed when there is a need for a ration.
It really is too bad that there are no aliens that need our computer games.
