    I have travelled all over the world since I was 19, and I have seen almost everywhere I am interested in, and I am only 23. It amazes me how cheap it is to travel the globe in this day and age.

    It's gotten me thinking, I believe human exploration and expansion is solely based on how statistically easy it is to travel certain distances, and once all the distances available are made easy and possible for the average man, thats when man naturally breaks into new territory.

    I think man is ready to start exploring space in practical scenarios, and I think the post world war 2 jet age's novelty and the novelty of the world shrinking with the end of communism and the rise of the internet and digital communications has worn off, I wanna get off planet earth and see our solar system.

    You think it's possible in our lifetime yet?

    Seriously, I think if you're bored with the world at 23 you will find outer space even less interesting.
    I don't think space travel will become a reality in my own lifetime but, just the same, I'm hoping some amazing discovery will be made before I kick the bucket.

    If you don't die first, yes.

    Completely possible. Extremely unlikely.

    I'd never do it. There is far to much to see in this world for me to even think about exploring another.

    I would've made an awesome pirate or cowboy! I would've avatared the europeans and lead the natives to victory!

    I often wonder if man ever discovered a primitive humanoid species on a far off world, would we go all Christopher Columbus on them again or not.

    lol, no.
    I'm kind of content with earth, however I do wish others to risk their lives to explore space, it's a pretty cool topic, but for myself, im way too much of a fuckin pussy to leave earth. and all my earthly trappings like starbucks and wifi access.

    Hmm. I was hoping for something a little more exciting than the olinguito.
