When Are We Going To Smarten Up And Fucking Nuke Mars Already?

I have been a long time advocate of nuking the shit out of Mars. Initially my motivation for nuking Mars came from a Sid in Toy Story type place that we can all relate to which is...blowing shit up is cool. It always has been. It always will be. Blowing something up on another planet has to be the pinnacle for every 9 year old kid who played with fireworks and air soft guns and were just generally destructive. 

Now though, as an adult, nuking the shit out of Mars isn't just for fun. It is to save humanity and consciousness. Nuking Mars is something even the best and brightest of people have advocated. Elon Musk is team nuke Mars and he has said that he wants to die on the planet.

So he was admittedly being flippant and actually just wants to heat Mars so the red planet can terraformed. Nice save, Elon. We all know that you, the guy who invented a flame thrower nobody was asking for, loves to blow shit up and wants to nuke another planet. Maybe the science around nuking the poles of Mars to create heat and a carbon based atmosphere isn't perfect, but let's not let perfection be the enemy of the good and the fun. 

Upside...we terraform and create a viable planetary alternative to Earth. Downside...we leave nuclear fall out everywhere. Well the downside already happened. That Dogwalk episode we did yesterday and posted talks all about how there is a shit ton of this element Xenon-129 and everyone says that the ONLY way you get that element is as a byproduct of a nuclear weapons explosion. So Mars can deal with a little radiation. They probably need more of it. The smartest thing we, as humans, can do for our species is take all the weapons that Putin and Biden are itching to use and send them to Mars. If someone has a better idea I would love to hear it.
