in reply to The most important near-term goal of a space program:

I would never wish to downplay the seriousness of our conflict with the Daleks, so I should explain that my aim in choosing "Other" was ... that I consider the most important near-term goal of a space program to be getting me off the planet and relocating me somewhere I can see the stars at night. It's entirely selfish. There are far too many Chuck E. Cheeses and Wal-Marts going up in formerly rural areas, my friends, and it's getting very hard to see the Milky Way past the glare from them and from those all night super-illuminated gas stations. Once I am out of the way and no one has to listen to me complain about light pollution and overpopulation any more, paying attention to the Daleks will be much easier. I guar-RON-tee!

    Sorry, chexmix, you'll never be allowed off, on account of the fact that you're already polluted by ad jingles...

    What? you're not allowing me off because I can't get the 'Higglytown Heroes' theme out of my head??? Nooooo! :D
