Are you fucking retarded?

My issue is that Protactinium 231, (don't get your isotopes mixed up) is literally useless for something like oh, I dunno, eventual human travel in space, compared to plutonium, which has other uses than for nuclear weapons.


So wait...now you're advocating uranium cycle reactors because they can power our spaceships?

Handwaving. You're doing it.

And where did you find that stylish tin foil hat?

Hey man, I'm pretty sure Thy has been wilfully obtuse and annoying for far longer than Him.

Besides, Him doesn't have that supersmugness oozing out of his posts. With him it's just simple smugness occasionally mixed up with weird personal stories and that time he wanted to run away to the UK because he feared the neonazis might kill him.

We should have more of Him. And we should make Him a special woolen coat. I don't know why we should, but I think we just should.

But I thought everyone loved furries because they are fussy and cute and not scary and creepy as hell at all?

Seriously there's just something about an sex orgy of people dressed in plysch disney like animal costumes that is unsettling.

Not to mention it seems very warm... then your fursuit gets all sweaty... and do you get those things drycleaned or what? It's just not for me.
