Neil deGrasse Tyson on Corruption

This is fantastic.

Now the talk show host makes a good point, just put em’ all on a spacecraft with no food, water etc.

But why expend the energy to fire them into a black hole. Granted the spaghettification would be spectacular.

You know at one time I just wanted to get them all in one place, say a stadium in butt fuck America. And then drop a 10 megaton nuke on it. Make them go from solid to gaseous in micro or nano seconds. But then it occurred to me, why not do what the Golgafrinchams did. First spread the rumor that a giant earworm is coming to eat the Earth. Then build stellar spacecraft and pack them all on it saying that they are the future of the human race on another planet. Program the ship to crash directly into the sun.

Note the themes in that paragraph – into the sun, certain doom, etc. They come directly from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Come to think of it, we could do pay-per-view of the event and wipe out the national debt in the process.
