Hawking Thinks we Better Get Into Outer Space.

Great news everyone!

Stephen Hawking, aside from being one sexy man, is widely regarded in pop culture as the God of Science (I love contradiction) and he thinks we are pretty much fucked. He recently posted on a popular science themed website that the human race is angry, greedy and selfish and should colonize other planets before we wipe ourselves out.

Hawking has some specific suggestions too.

First, he thinks that if we can make it another two hundred years here on earth, we will be in a good position to start branching out to the stars. What he isn’t so confident of is the chances of us making it a whole two hundred years without wiping ourselves out.

Second: he thinks we should hook up with single planets who need colonists using online dating services.

Okay, not really.

Surely we can make it two more centuries people. This is the survival of the human species version of being told to eat your vegetables. Instead of your mom saying “two more bites,” you have Hawking with his, “two more centuries”. And just like how two year olds, say “fuck you mom,” and either eat their food or smash it all over the kitchen. So, based on my observation of children eating supper, I am throwing my hat in the ring with Hawking and guessing that we will either make it our 200 years with ease, or completely fuck the planet by then in an entirely irredeemable way.

Well, lets hope Hawking isn’t quite right on this one, I wouldn’t mind dying with the knowledge that the human race might at least make it another half a millennia.
