100 Years to leave planet earth - who gets on the ship

Recommended Posts

Stephen Hawking warns we have 100 years to leave this planet, obviously tickets will be premium priced so who gets to leave. Will it be bankers, financiers and the political elite or our finest genetic breeding material.

I would be quite happy to stay and take my chances here if all the above leave

Maybe Stephen Hawkins is being incredibly clever and just trying to convince the nasty elite to bugger off and leave the rest of us in peace. 

Think what a nice country the uk would be if all of Parliament and the Richard Branson types just got on a spaceship and went.

They'd be replaced. Humans are programmed to make wankers of themselves as soon as they are in a position to do so. Chimp coding. Unless we recode.

Ben Elton wrote a very good book called 'Stark' which was all about this exact thing. Very funny it was too.

On the ship? 

Piers Morgan, Tony Blair, Russell Brand, Gordon Ramsay, Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un, Mugabe, Dianne Abbott, Jeremy Corbyn, Owen Jones and there is space for a few others.

I say let them go ahead, and NASA, being the intelligent bunch of bods that they are, will spot an opportunity for humanity and fire it directly into the sun.

Then, even if we've only got a few years of existence left, at least we can enjoy it in relative fucking peace and quiet.

Stark was awesome, I read it as a teenager, one of the funniest things I read

This is the issue. The populace as a whole will never self organise in sufficient numbers to make a decent fist of it. Look at the Arab Spring, Romania etc. It's the equivalent of middle managers that either loot the place or take it over from the last CEO because they had the networks to do so.  The next set of scumbags are always waiting in the wings.

If the Abbopotamus is on there, there will only be space left for a couple of skinny people max.

The really unpleasant thing is when you realise you might well be a scumbag too if put in a position to be one. I reckon id start well, but history suggests most are fairly quickly corrupted.

Anyway id put all the reality stars and all their followers on ark b

Chances are, with his longevity, he'll still be around to see it himself.

What is the supposed nature of this imminent calamity?
