We're really biased to think the universe selects for intelligence. At best it selects for lichen which barely clings to rocks in the blast of a solar wind.

OK, sometimes through happy accident, two planets smash into each other and you end up with an iron dynamo in the new planet that can deflect the poisonous solar winds, and then you might get oceans of healthy moss, fed by its sun for a few billion years until the sun winks out.

It would be extremely rare for even multicell life to come into existence. But OK, if that happens, maybe a few of those planets even have lush plants and seaweeds. Maybe they even have some single cell oxygen breathing vegans to dine on them.

Multicell animals though? That's basically life evolving to be multicelled twice over. But when that happens, I suppose you'd get plenty of sea monsters, cows mostly.

I suppose eventually you might get land cows. And perhaps after a billion years, the they would evolve into great beasts which fed even on each other.

So even in the best of cases, the universe selects for dinosaurs. But hey, what if they just happen to get hit by an asteroid?

And then a whole bunch of other things need to go just right. The universe is big, but way too many things went right just for us to be here. A recent study has come out in which scientists tried to find the kind of waste heat a large successful intelligent starfaring civilization should be giving off by now in distant galaxies. They couldn't find a thing.

Not back, except there is no debt crisis. And you should have plugged nuclear which can indeed cover a lot more of our needs than wind and solar.

This is really heartbreaking!
Martin Sutherland originally shared:
 
Every email I get from another parent who has had the same experience as us is heartbreaking. Please, Google, make it stop.

And by that, I don't mean cut off my email as well.

The so-called super committee that would be responsible for cutting $1.5 trillion from the federal deficit is poised to create a new class on K Street: The Superlobbyists.
