Scientists Working On Space Elevator and World Record For Longest Awkward Moment of Silence

Well, Art C. Clarke wrote about it in a book that I will never read and now scientists are trying to make it a reality. An elevator to space! I guess my first question is, “Why do we need one?” And then my next question is, “What would the Space Elevator Repairman Job pay?”

The space elevator experts are saying that the cable would need to be 22,000 miles long. To me, the scientists that are plugging away at this mean as much to science as Kevin Federline means to music and Ghandi means to the shoe business. If you can put together an elevator that goes to space, then you’re probably smart enough to do something a lot more important.

Really, what is wrong with people? Let’s work on Earth a little bit before we start worrying about a big ball made of cheese.
