Weekend Question Thread

Trip to outer space, or to the bottom of the ocean?

(If “both” was not an option.)

  1. No contest: outer space.
    At the bottom of the ocean you can’t see more than few metres even with lights.

    Agree with spork incident. But if the alternative was a submarine roaming through the global shallows…hmmm…that’d be a difficult choice. Zero gravity/free fall might be fun for a few minutes, but I hear it gets in the way of stuff like eating/drinking, and I like to do both. Plus I really like visiting large aquariums — have been to the one in New Orleans, also Monterrey California, and Shedd’s…I can — and did — spend hours.
    But I also LOVE viewing land forms from altitude. In an airplane I’ll choose a window even over an exit row if it’s an aisle (and I’m taller than average)…
    Hmmm…ok, coin flip. Heads, space, tails, sub.
    Came up space.

    Space. Both will kill you in 10 seconds flat, but all the things mentioned above make space far more interesting.
    . . and damn it, there’ll be thunderclaps and rainbows!

    If I could accompany Capt. Nemo on the spacious, elegant, and comfortable Nautilus — the deeps. Otherwise, neither. (I’ve developed a bit of claustrophobia as I’ve aged.)
    British Columbia, Alberta, the not-yet-logged parts of Ontario, the Brooks Range.

    Space baby, you got no plaaanet:

    Neither. I’m claustrophobic as crap and there’s no way I’m in a tin can where I can’t get out and… Christ, I’m sweating just thinking about this. NEW QUESTION!!!!

  9. adrastos says:

    Dive, Doc, dive. Note: It’s Carnival so I’m wasted and a buzz is a terrible thing to waste or summat like that.

    I already went down in a diving bell and it was very kewel so I would take the tardis out and out and out

    Bang, zoom, to the moon! When I was a kid I’d hoped that one day I’d experience weightlessness and thought there would be a good chance of that happening. Now that seems unlikely, other than the time I jumped out of an airplane, but that’s different.

    Bottom of the ocean. I’d like to know what’s there before we manage to fuck it up too.
