Crash! Boom! Moon!

NASA is planning to smash spacecraft into the moon!

Usually it's a sure sign of boredom with little Sammy starts blowin' up his toys. Maybe not this time: they're huntin' H2O.

NASA is the smallest and one of the least-objectionable uses of my tax money, the hidebound and not-invented-here nature of the agency notwithstanding. If there is easily had water on the Moon, it will make establishing a base and eventual commercial development a lot simpler. I'm all for that.

Hey, maybe they could exile us crazy freedom-freaks to the Moon?

(Once again, this time correctly spelled.)

Won't that create lunar warming?

Naa, if us freedom loving types (aka freaks) ever get to have our own colony, I saw we go WAY out in the outer system. A jovian moon maybe. With spun orbital habits so we can get the right gravity. Distance makes it harder for jack booted types to change their minds and try to re-exert their authority.

Sure.

Just remember that you must only know the identities of your two cohorts.... stick to your cell.

And for god's sake, don't walk too fast down the ramp, the nurses are tired of setting broken legs...

Lol..... who didn't know all of Manny's friends would be crawling out of their tunnels right about now?

Sure enough... and make sure to keep your suit handy, and the warden not....
