Whose bright idea was it to sit on a rocket full of fuel and actually propel a human into outer space? Could there be anything more absurd than that?
It's just wild to think of what we humans do. Do we really have NO limits?
We can travel to the moon.
We can create a cloned animal.
We (thanks to Al Gore) created the Internet.
We have play-doh and bubble gum and botox and Dr. pepper and a ton of other amazing things---at one point will we reach our full potential? Have we mastered everything yet? What is yet to come?? I know when I was growing up, we somewhat believed we would have flying cars before we were "grown up" (we also believed that California would be sinking into the ocean).
Is it possible that the human race is just too smart for its own good?
