Is There Real Estate Available on Mars?

| September 23, 2020

I’m beginning to wonder if people were as gobsmacking nuts during the Plague sessions in Europe as they seem to be now.

Seattle is turning street control over to a non-LEO who is, in reality, a street pimp? Well, the real cops are leaving because they’re being blamed for what happened, which is what you get from a moron who got voted into office. Dump it all off on someone else and go hide.

In this morning’s news:

First: A nutball named “Deadhead Cowboy” gallops his horse on a Chicago highway as a protest. Faces felony animal cruelty charges. The horse has no opinion to offer so far.

Apparently, according to the article, Mr. Hollinsworth (who is a sloppy, lousy rider and should know better than to gallop a horse on concrete) frequently takes horses to protests. The way he was pounding that horse’s kidneys means Nunu, the piebald horse, has the patience of a saint. (A piebald horse is black and white. Pinto is three colors: chestnut, black and white.)

From the article:  According to WGN, Adam Hollinsworth, 33, rode his horse NuNu on the Dan Ryan Expressway with a motorcycle escort for 30 minutes before being arrested by Illinois State Police.

Hollinsworth, who is known in the area for riding a horse to protests, was attempting to raise awareness for the rise of gun violence on children in Chicago. Hollinsworth called it a “Kids Lives Matter” protest. He faces charges of reckless conduct, trespassing and disobeying a police officer. – article


Next: The Eiffell Tower in Paris has been threatened by phone by a mad bomber. Police evacuated tourists from the scene.

PARIS – Paris police briefly evacuated the Eiffel Tower and blockaded the surrounding area Wednesday after a phone-in bomb threat.

All tourists inside the monument were evacuated after an anonymous caller phoned police Wednesday morning and said a bomb had been placed inside the tower, according to an official with the tower’s management company. – article


And finally, in this episode of “da Strange”, Facebook shut down Greenpeace’s site to stop climate misinformation.

From the article:  The suspensions came just a few days after the social media giant said it was launching a “climate science information center” to counter widely shared but misleading posts that reject the established science of the climate crisis. – article

This should relieve your mind of any doubts that we are living in Strange Times. If Facebook, well-known for disliking dissenting opinions because Zuckerberg is a dork, shuts down Greenpeace even if by accident, even if logarithms were involved (and they should be punished severely for such a horrifying mistake!), it is time to buckle your seat belt, people.  It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

Have a nice day. The weekend is coming up. Spend some time with good people and don’t let the crazypants nutballs get you down.

    Well, the world is getting worst by the day.

    I will watch the size of the universe to take a break from the craziness out there.

      Outstanding Sgt K. Thanks for the post.

      Wonder if I can hook up with Jadzia Dax? Being on DS9 is looking pretty good about now.

        She can’t cook, you old gasbag. All she knows how to do is push buttons and ask the computer to deliver food produced to her liking.

    Yes you can buy land on Mars.

    This company is the real deal! “Lunar Land is one of THE FIRST companies in the world to file for a legal TRADEMARK and COPYRIGHT for the sale of extraterrestrial property within the confines of our solar system.”

    And lets not quibble over what trademarks and copyrights have to do with owning real estate on another planet.

    If you don’t support real estate speculation on another planet you are letting the commies win!

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Gee, I’ll have to get fitted for my respirator and pressure suit before I go inspect the property, and probably will need to take my own lunch with me.

      So much to do, so little time….

      • penguinman000 says:

        Have space suit will travel.

        Red Planet – get the original edition that Heinlein submitted. His editor was a prissy bimp who didn’t like “real” stuff.

        • penguinman000 says:

          RAH is probably the only modern author I’ve read just about everything he’s written. Including his speeches. But I was unaware there was a dramatic change from the original.

          I’ll have to look that up. Thanks.

            Many of his early works were “juveniles” meant for the Young Adult market.

            Thus “Starship Troopers” had a heavily sanitized version of Infantry culture. “Red Planet” suffered from an editor who balked at the depiction of a frontier as … a frontier. “Podykayne of Mars” had a very heavily edited ending.

            Some of his works were re-issued after his death in the original versions. Much improved in my opinion.

          • Ex-PH2 says:

            I think you can find everything Heinlein, including the “unedited” (restored) versions at Amazon.

        • Ex-PH2 says:

          His editor was a woman who thought using “real” references, such as Willis the Martian Roundhead laying eggs, did not belong in that literature, even thought that was the reason that Willis was so important.

          Fortunately, that prissy bimp editor never got her claws into “Citizen Of The Galaxy” or “Stranger In A Strange Land’.

    • Joe says:

      We know there is land available on Mars – that’s where Hillary, in cahoots with NASA, keeps the underage sex slaves she snuck out of that DC pizzeria.

    Air Force Two (2) digested a bird in N.H.

  4. Trivia: Did you know that the Mars bar was made on Mars, and at that time, the Martian Chronicle had the stocks up.

    Found Deadhead Cowboy’s horses’ opinion –

  6. Ex Coelis says:

    As our Hunter S. Thompson counselled us, years ago: “When the going gets Weird, the weird turn Pro”. True then. Truer now. Rather missing our Hunter these days…

  7. Ex Coelis says:

    May the ghost of Bob Hunter – founding member of Greenpeace – forever haunt Zuckerburg’s dreams and nightmares…

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Y’know, when Zuckerberg had to go before Congress a few months back, to explain himself to them, he had to sit on a pillow.

      I know Bloomberg is probably shorter than I am, and he has Short Man Syndrome, so I wonder if that’s what’s wrong with Zuckerberg.

      Just guessin’….

  8. Berliner says:

    The horse suffered injuries according to the news:

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Yes, she did. That MORON had her at a full gallop on concrete. He was also, as I said, so loose in the saddle that he was pounding her kidneys pretty hard.

      He deserves whatever bad things happen to him.
