BREAKING NEWS: COLONIZING MARS IS RACIST

You know the saying, when a wise man points at the moon, the fool judges the finger.

This lady here apparently got offended by Elon Musk’s vision to colonize Mars, you know, because colonies are bad and white people and bad things from the past..just scribble down a vague “Europeans are evil”-narrative of the past from the top of your mind and you’ll have her argument. Because apparently, the prospect of the colonization of another planet and the giant step forward for humanity this would be is problematic because the language reminded her of past events. .



We’re here discussing humanity’s way into space, yet these people would rather keep us down here on earth and obsess over the semantics of proposals like this. The only thing more infinite than space are the hurt feelings of the perpetually offended.

What can we say to that?

Hell yea, it’s colonialism and hell yea, we’ll manifest humanity’s destiny in space. 

And on Mars, no one can hear you whine. Unless we don’t even get off the earth because someone complained that white astronaut suits are racist.

Man discovers he’s babysitting abducted child

JOHN Truong thought he was helping his sister have a night out with her boyfriend. Then he discovered the child he was babysitting had been reported missing.

In a bizarre case police have since arrested Truong’s sister, Alyssa Chang, and the boy’s 65-year-old grandmother Vien Nguyen, after the pair allegedly tied up the child’s mother and locked her in a cupboard in Washington.

Police say they incapacitated his mother with a Taser, and drove both to another house in Fife where they tied up the mother in the garage.

An Amber Alert was issued on Tuesday night after the mother managed to escape and ran to a neighbour’s place.

Truong’s sister said she would return in the morning to pick up Ronnie. However she did not show up and stopped returning his messages.

It was not until the next day that Truong saw the Amber Alert for a child that looked exactly like the one he was still looking after.

“I’m eating my breakfast, I’m checking my Facebook, all of a sudden I see this Amber Alert for this child,” Mr Truong told KOMO News. “And it looks like this child in my bed, and I’m like, “Oh my God! What’s going on?”

Truong then called police. He said Ronnie had been perfectly well behaved.

“He was a great kid. He didn’t cry much or anything. He enjoyed my dog’s company and my children’s company,” Mr Truong said. “Everything seemed great and then all of a sudden I’m eating breakfast and it turns out to be this.”

He said he was shocked that his sister had been arrested, saying it was out of character for her.

“I feel like she was just helping her boyfriend out and just got into this horrible situation,” he said. “We’re family people … Honestly I’m at a loss for words right now. It’s just crazy.”

Guy walks through the massive pileup over in Wyoming that occurred the day before yesterday. Guy claims two are dead, but, amazingly, no one was killed. Pretty apocalyptic.

It only rained here.
