That's pretty spot on innit.
So if I may nerd for a second. Glises is a fairly new discovered planer similar to Tellus (our home) and that means there's a fair chance of life or refuge in case shit happens

Well according to some shady site it would take 200 years to get there, with the current traveling technology

Naron of the long-lived Rigellian race was the fourth of his line to keep the galactic records.

He had a large book which contained the list of the numerous races throughout the galaxies that had developed intelligence, and the much smaller book that listed those races that had reached maturity and had qualified for the Galactic Federation. In the first book, a number of those listed were crossed out; those that, for one reason or another, had failed. Misfortune, biochemical or biophysical shortcomings, social maladjustment took their toll. In the smaller book, however, no member listed had yet blanked out.

And now Naron, large and incredibly ancient, looked up as a messenger approached.

“Naron,” said the messenger. “Great One!”

“Well, well, what is it? Less ceremony.”

“Another group of organisms has attained maturity.”

“Excellent. Excellent. They are coming up quickly now. Scarcely a year passes without a new one. And who are these?”

The messenger gave the code number of the galaxy and the coordinates of the world within it.

“Ah, yes,” said Naron. “I know the world.” And in flowing script he noted it in the first book and transferred its name into the second, using, as was customary, the name by which the planet was known to the largest fraction of its populace. He wrote: Earth.

He said, “These new creatures have set a record. No other group has passed from intelligence to maturity so quickly. No mistake, I hope.”

“None, sir,” said the messenger.

“They have attained to thermonuclear power, have they?”

“Yes, sir.”

“Well, thats the criterion.” Naron chuckled. “And soon their ships will probe out and contact the Federation.”

“Actually, Great One,” said the messenger, reluctantly, “the Observers tell us they have not yet penetrated space.”

Naron was astonished. “Not at all? Not even a space station?”

“Not yet, sir.”

“But if they have thermonuclear power, where do they conduct the tests and detonations?”

“On their own planet, sir.”

Naron rose to his full twenty feet of height and thundered, “On their own planet?”

“Yes, sir.”

Slowly Naron drew out his stylus and passed a line through the latest addition in the small book. It was an unprecedented act, but, then, Naron was very wise and could see the inevitable as well as anyone in the galaxy.

“Silly asses,” he muttered.

I'll tell you a story that happened to me
One day as I went down to Cork by the sea
The sun it was hot and the day it was warm,
Says I a quiet pint wouldn't do me no harm

I went in and I called for a bottle of stout
Says the barman, I'm sorry, all the beer is sold out
Try whiskey or paddy, ten years in the wood
Says I, I'll try cider, I've heard it was good.

Oh never, Oh never, Oh never again
If I live to be a hundred or a hundred and ten
I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up
After drinking a quart of the Johnny Jump Up

After downing the third I went out to the yard
Where I bumped into Brody, the big civic guard
Come here to me boy, don't you know I'm the law?
Well, I up with me fist and I shattered his jaw

He fell to the ground with his knees doubled up
But it wasn't I hit him, 'twas Johnny Jump Up
The next thing I remember down in Cork by the sea
Was a cripple on crutches and says he to me

I'm afraid of me life I'll be hit by a car
Won't you help me across to the Celtic Knot Bar?
After downing a quart of that cider so sweet
He threw down his crutches and danced on his feet

I went up the lee road, a friend for to see
They call it the madhouse in Cork by the Sea
Butl when I got there, sure the truth I will tell,
They had this poor bugger locked up in a cell

Said the guard, testing him, say these words if you can,
"Around the rugged rock the ragged rascal ran"
Tell him I'm not crazy, tell him I'm not mad
It was only a sip of the bottle I had

Well, a man died in the mines by the name of McNabb
They washed him and laid him outside on the slab
And after the parlors measurements did take
His wife brought him home to a bloody fine wake

Twas about 12 o'clock and the beer was high
The corpse sits up and says with a sigh
I can't get to heaven, they won't let me up
Til I bring them a quart of the Johnny Jump Up

LL 200 years with current technology? lol okay. It takes around 85,000 years to get to the nearest star with current technology. You're thinking of traveling at the speed of light perhaps, which would take 200 years traveling at 186,000 miles per second.

You don't need that comma in your sentence.

Tr fail English? That's unpossible.

physics and punctuation, what can't he do??
4 years ago
Programming. I'm not very good at that. So there's that.

So does hot snow fall up??
4 years ago
as to the question of modern language, let us consult "the book."

in this case, "the book" will be handbook of current english by corder and ruszkiewicz, copyright 1989.

chapter 11 is titled "commas" and on page 217 the following rule is given: Expressions of Contrast - Commas are used to set off expressions that indicate a contrast or contradiction.
4 years ago
There was no contrast or contradiction there so good job with making yourself look dumb as always.
4 years ago
to put it in simpler terms, the comma shows that i don't really think you know physics...
4 years ago
You do know that most people are drunk by now?
4 years ago
just like you don't really know english, because if you did, you would have realized what i was doing.
4 years ago
i do know of the intoxication, kurupt, but oftentimes i write for the future.

that would have been funnier as:

Can you make me a robotic claw? I always wanted to 1 up that cunt from enter the dragon?
4 years ago
if you're as much of a bad-ass physics man as you think, you should build a sex robot.
4 years ago
If you knew anything about physics and what I'm going for you'd see I'm not going for electronics/nanoscience.
You don't learn everything; you learn what courses you need to satisfy where in the field you're going into.
4 years ago
Robots are a mixture of nanoscience and engineering.
4 years ago
You didn't learn everything? Don't you mean anything, you smart arsed cunt? And what about my robot claw?
4 years ago
If you read that correctly it says, "You don't learn everything." Meaning you don't learn all branches of the science. You're a fucking moron.
4 years ago
You would probably be too dumb to even operate it.

I bet the women love you?

I bet you're a faggot.
4 years ago
No need to bet on that; it's quite obvious.
4 years ago
do you hate commas or something?
4 years ago
perhaps you should take some remedial language arts....
4 years ago
of course, if you get on putting together that sex robot, you can pay people who know what their doing (like me) to write stuff for you and you can pretend that you wrote it and the girls will swoon...

Not to get involved in the fight or anything but, kurupt, Stop while you are ahead my man. You're like the little dog amongst two big dogs fighting and you are getting knocked in all directions.
