I was hanging out with my old man this weekend and we were watching this incredible show on Discovery HD called When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions. It was awe inspiring. And it got me thinking about how much we take these amazing feats of technology for granted.
I mean, c'mon people, we've had people living in space for the last eight years! On the International Space Station, for those of you going, "Really?" Yeah. Really.
I'm embarrassed to be a part of a society that is generally more interested in which celebrity is in rehab this week, whether a politician is wearing a flag pin, or what the latest lame ass mallcore fashion is than our ability to explore the universe.
