why we should blow up the Moon

moon explosionAfter all this talk of blowing up the Moon, I revisited the petition to blow up the moon, and it’s up to 1109 signatures.  That’s quite a few people, though nowhere near enough to get this kind of legislation to pass.

I decided to glance at some of the recent signatures, to see what people are listing as their reasons for signing it, and I found some interesting excuses.  Here’s some of the most random and creative ones (with the original spelling and grammar):

* How long before it crashes to Earth and kills the dinosaurs again?
* I’m not using it for anything. Why not blow it up?
* Pretty annoying. Never stays the same shape.
* because it has enslaved humans in its evil orbital …… orbit for far to long
* It blocks my view.
* it gives us nothing and if we can blow it up we can study the inside from the outside
* it causes the tides. which causes friction which in turn causes volcanos to erupt, and im living on a volcano.
* Been there, not done it.
* sure destroying the moon would have catastrofic effects but thats the fun of it
* One word: werewolves!
* I am sick of my sandcastles being washed away.
* Because it’s stupid and cheesy.
* The moon is the giant stir-stick in the solution of life, and the planet would look nice with a ring…
* It should be blown up because it’s leeching off our gravity.
* It makes me feel empty inside.
* It’s starting to smell.
* Waste of space…(get it?)
* When I was there, it pretty much sucked.
* What if it falls down?
* I hate cheese…
* For too long the moon has looked down on us!
* what the crap if u blow up the moon earth would be destroyed also and id just be plain idiotic

So there you have it — lots of reasons why the Moon should be blown up.  Of course, if we were to consider the argument for not blowing up the Moon, there’s at least one really good reason on that side.  I won’t get into that debate here, but you can ponder it on your own time.  Just don’t actually try to blow up the Moon on your own — there’s some potential side effects that need to be considered first.  (Also at that last link is part of our discussion on how the Moon is broken.)

    Here’s a good reason to not blow up the moon. that’s where i’ve hidden my inflatable moon base!

      You’d be absolutely shocked at how close your comment is to the Truth. If you want to explore some verifiable FACTS that will forever change the way you view the moon, just search keywords “spaceship moon anomalies” &/or “evidence moon hollow aliens”. There have been many books written on this subject by VERY credible & widely-respected scientists.
      The Truth, indeed, is often MUCH stranger than fiction.
      After all, Truth is what inspires fiction…

    Another good reason: North Korea. You know they want to blow up the moon sooooooo bad. Beat them to the punch and blow that sucker up. In your tiny face, Kim Jong Il!

    If the wanna-be “Important Evil Genius” actually has a hidden inflatable moon base, now everyone knows about it. (Actually, if he has one there, that’s somewhat impressive given his antique technology. Though I reckon lunar landers are over 40 years old now, so that fits in with his technological prowess.)

    If he does have a moon base there, that’s all the more reason to blow up the Moon! He’s probably planning to do it himself, and we shouldn’t let him succeed. He would explode it from the back, blowing the debris to Earth and wiping out all life — not intentionally, because then there would be nothing for him to rule. But his world-domination plans often have such holes of logic. (And the apparent complication of him putting a moon base there and then blowing it up still fits within his realm of reasoning. That’s just how he rolls.)

    If you could convince Al Gore or President Obama that blowing up the Moon would help prevent global warming, they would get it done. (Actually, that probably wouldn’t be too hard — they don’t seem to need facts or science to support their theories and agendas.)
