      And to imagine there are actually people who think money can’t buy you happiness or friendships!

      I wonder, though, if a certain Police song was inspired by their getting rich:

      “Don’t stand, don’t stand, don’t stand so close to me.” 😀

        Oh, it might have been connected to their new-found wealth now you mention it. Certainly their suddenly being able to afford getting wasted every night was movingly chronicled in their eloquent classic “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da.”

        I always wondered how they came up with that title. It makes sense that it’s the product of a massive hangover, from getting wasted every night.

        “My head’s killing me. Huh? Oh, yeah, we got to write a song. I dunno. How about ‘de de de,’ or something like that? Well, excuse me, but I’m not exactly Walt Whitman when I’m working through a hangover!”

    I admire your poetic spirit, but I must admit the danger would get to me in a place where even small injuries can become dangerous. I know NASA was very worried about the fact that cuts and bruises heal much more slowly in microgravity environments since it could endanger astronauts during further missions to the Moon and Mars.

    In fact, this was one of the main reasons why it conducted research into photobiomodulation. It was found that by means of handheld devices containing banks of Light Emitting Diodes that radiate primarily in the 620–740 nanometers range, it was possible to encourage the skin to heal itself more quickly. Of course, it has long been claimed that a positive mental attitude and a feeling of general wellbeing can produce exactly the same effect.

    I guess since you describe yourself as being able to sit peacefully on the lunar surface and admire the beauty of the planet Earth up in the sky, you’d fall into this second category of self-healers who never have any need for LED technology during your visits. This being the case, you can just sit on the rocks an’ you don’t have to put on the red light.


    (Okay, that’s my entire knowledge of Police hits used up. I’m now much more knowledgeable about Nasa light-emitting diode irradiation, though.)

      I’ve lost so much faith in the world — especially when it comes to comedy. I’ve lost my faith in stand-ups and in sitcoms. I’ve lost my faith in movies and in books.

      But if I ever lose my faith in you, there’d be nothing left for me to do.

      (Oh, wait. That’s a reference from Sting’s solo work, and not from the Police. Does that count as cheating?)
