WaPo - The good news is that governments no longer have a monopoly on space exploration. In two or three decades, we will have entrepreneurs taking us on private spaceflights to the moon. That is what has become possible. What has changed since the days of the Apollo moon landings is that the cost of building technologies has dropped exponentially. What cost billions of dollars then costs millions now, and sometimes even less. The Apollo Guidance Computer, which took humans to the moon in 1966, had a 2.048 MHz processor—slower than those you find in calculators and musical greeting cards. In the 1920s, New York hotel owner Raymond Orteig offered a $25,000 prize to the first person to fly non-stop between New York and Paris. Several unsuccessful attempts were made before an American airmail pilot named Charles Lindbergh won the competition in 1927 with his plane, The Spirit of St. Louis. Lindbergh’s achievement made him a national hero and a global celebrity. And it sparked the interest and investment that led to the modern aviation industry.

If you have money, this is the best thing ever. Can you imagine taking your broad to the fucking moon? Hey honey, have a surprise for you…BOOM you’re on the fucking moon! Imagine how many likes she’d get on her Instagram pics from the moon? She’d be bragging to all her annoying friends at girl’s night about what a great guy you are. And her friends would be so jealous.

But now think about it if you’re poor. And your buddy flies his girlfriend to the moon. You’ll never hear the end of it. “Susan’s boyfriend flew her to the moon, why don’t you ever do anything for me?” Bitch cause it’s the moon! Next thing you know you’re buying her diamonds like Kobe did for his wife after he raped that girl, and even diamonds won’t be good enough for her. The expectations will be set so high, no broad will ever be happy again. It could be the downfall of society.

And then thirdly, back to scenario 1 if you’re rich and fly your broad to the moon..nothing will ever satisfy her again. Once you fly your girl to the moon for a dinner date, what is there left to do? You can’t just go to dinner at the Olive Garden after taking her into outer space. Microwaved chicken alfredo won’t do the job after she’s 69’d you in zero gravity.

It’s a very tricky situation. That’s why the moon should be like Vegas- you go for bachelor parties and conventions. You only go when you’re single and to fuck some moon strange. And then maybe when you’re old and retired you and your old lady decide to go to the moon just for old time sakes. But at that point, people are already flying and living on Mars, so it’s not like the moon is all that and a bag of chips anymore.

So moral of the story, don’t go to the moon with your chick, go with your boys. You’re welcome.
