If you were among the first colonizers of a new planet in the twenty-first century, what would you not want your fellow colonists to transport from the planet Earth?

No, not bored, just on the list of questions to pose to TC.

Anything sporting a brand name. I'd even ask them to cut the labels out of their collars. This society is already poisoned enough by advertising; no need to get the next one off on the wrong foot. (That is, if we're not settling Microsoftia or Planet Nike or whatever.)

Rodents. Rats. Whatever.

Our current political system. I don't know what would be better, but it would be nice to start again.

I agree with the logos. And no fast food.

Just fooling...I'm a semi-democrat myself.

Star Jones, Rosie O'Donnell, brocolli, Dave Mitzman

Scott Hardie | August 4, 2004
All right, that's the second reference you've made, so I'll ask. What's your problem with Star Jones and Rosie O'Donnell? :-)

Scott Horowitz | August 4, 2004
they just bother me.

Anna Gregoline | August 4, 2004
Yeah, but are either of them in the news these days? Not very bothersome if you don't see them.

David Mitzman | August 4, 2004
Cell phones. I have one (actually two because one of them is my work cell phone), but I don't really like it. I can't stand when people talk on them and not pay attention to the road, or talk in the movies. If cellphones had to absolutely be there, I'd leave the nextel direct connect technology behind. There is nothing worse than watching Freddy vs Jason and suddenly hearing a "ARE YOU THERE???".
so horribly rude.

Scott Horowitz | August 4, 2004
You're right. There is nothing worse than watching Freddy vs. Jason.

At the end of that movie, I really really really really really wanted them to fall in love and walk off into the sunrise.

I was so bummed out.

Cell phones are essentially a great invention, and as the technology improves to the point where you can get a flawless signal anywhere, they'll be a step forward for our civilization. I just wish that cell phone manners would sink in a little faster; the damn things are still so new after more than a decade that people still don't grasp how to use them responsibly. (The only time I made a cell phone call, I elicited dirty looks from everyone in the vicinity, and I only realized afterwards how loudly I was speaking.) I hold out hope that most people will learn how to use them kindly with time.

Humans. Oops - guess that is part of the requirment to colonization - scratch that ;-)

Pop-Culture: Brittney Spears, anything related to Amercian Idol, Cosmopolitan, GQ, National Enquirer type mags (sorry Scott!!), Atomic weapons.

The interesting thing is this: For every 'negative' thing we leave behind with 'civilization' on Earth - how long do you think it would take the 'new humanity' do duplicate and/or exceed everything we tried to keep from 'contaminating' them?

Scott Hardie | August 7, 2004
Tabloids? Set 'em all on fire before we leave Earth. :-)
