Man, leave the poor Moon alone. Don’t we have enough trouble occupying other countries, let alone other planetoids? Yes, we do. So let’s ease up, shall we?

Yeah, I read about that. Seems like a waste of money to me. What were they trying to do? [Find if there were traces of water on the Moon.] Yeah, waste of money. How much do you think it cost them to do that? I mean, you know, with all the problems we have down here, why waste money doing that, of all things? With the economy the way it is, really, who cares if there’s water on the Moon? Use that money for stuff, you know, on this planet.

I think it’s interesting. I’ve always liked space stuff. I want to find some aliens. Definitely I think there’s life on other planets. You know how big the universe is? There are so many galaxies that if even one out of every million could support life, there would be millions and millions of planets out there with life on them. No, I don’t think the Moon is one of them, but Mars definitely. Without a doubt.

I think it’s a great idea to find out if there’s water on the Moon. That way we can live there. Must be rich to live there though, I bet. I couldn’t afford it, but anyone who can should move there. [Why would it be better on the Moon?] Well, I didn’t say it would be better on the Moon, but the Earth might be better without the rich people. Anyway, if they don’t like it up there they can always come back.

I don’t believe in bombs, not even if it’s the Moon. If there is ice there, and water, then there is life, and if we don’t know what kind, we shouldn’t be bombing it. That should be obvious to everyone. I don’t know what’s wrong with people. Can’t they just put a flag?
