With the advent of commercial space travel upon us,
will list the numerous benefits of expanding the human
ever so slightly, into the great unknown.
But apparently no has considered the great benefits that
moon colony can bring to those among us that suffer
severe symptoms of Lycanthrophy, and who are lucky to
escape each month with a bark at the moon, and the
occasional tearing of someone's head off.
To the Moon, Alice, to the Moon.

||Sorry, [bigsleep], migrating werewolves to the
as a cure for lycanthrophy is absolutely an original
idea, one I've never even encountered before, and
not in any meaningful way related to my other
which had to do with altering the Moon's visible
shape, as seen from Earth. It's also
more accomplishable using current technology,
and is in no way allegorically connected to the
Golden Age Of Television.
||Ideal place of Nihil Armstrong, the very downbeat astronaut.
||Seriously, no one cares about a moon colony for
||The basic problem, [tc], is that for an idea to stand
up without having any real mechanical merit, it's got
to actually be funny. While the ghost of a joke is in
there, the actual execution is lacking.
||and, once a month during a Terran eclipse, they all turn into gerbils.
||^ for a country not noted for much, they do indeed produce the bestest-bar-none reality-tv shows.
||'My Lovely Horse' is a classic. Strangely, this idea links in directly with Father Ted, in which it is revealed that one of the diseases to which priests are prone is Hairy Hands Syndrome (episode 'New Jack City'). Father Jack is also seen to develop talon-like fingernails in another episode (where he uses them to worry away at the arm of his chair). All clear pointers to a mild case of lycanthropy!
I'm not convinced by the logic of this idea though, tc. The full moon is often associated with outbreaks of lycanthropy but I'm not sure that any study has been conducted on the matter. After all, the full moon is just a manifestation of the alignment of sun, moon and earth and that won't change regardless of where you send the lycanthropes. I think more study is needed.
||I still own that very same Casio keyboard.
RayfordSteele Jr. beats on it daily.
||To [hive], <Obligatory outraged comic> Not funny?
Not funny how?/>
||So I got werewolves, moon colony, PMS, and the
HoneyMooners all into one idea, and it's not funny?
I'll have to check with Dennis Miller.
||I think Dennis Leary is more the man for this one, tc. Some angry invective along the lines of the following:-
"You know what? I'm sick and tired of listening to the whining werewolves howling at the moon every 28 days. If they're so fond of the place why don't they all just join the damn space program, go there and start a damn colony; then they can howl away to their hearts content and I can get some sleep without having to worry about who's going to get their throat ripped out during the night!"
||I think the problem lies in the delivery: 'many will list the numerous benefits...' sounds like a sales pitch written by a mid-level cubical manager.
