What a week! Two billionaires both got to launch themselves into space, as the planet experiences widespread flooding and fire. Could these things possibly be related? Jeff Bezos isn’t paying taxes, and he’s exploiting the people in his warehouses so they’re ravaged by COVID and peeing in bottles. But he’s being so innovative by paying other people to build a rocket from using the money he makes from their labor. Kind of a toss-up.
If there’s one thing Bezos has not been able to buy, it’s self-awareness. Not only is he spending billions on space travel, which has already been done, he also launched himself into the sky in a rocket that looks a whole lot like a penis. Is there no one close enough to him to say anything? It seems like it.
Bezos’s rocket went up into the sky, touched the border of space, and then touched down again. No one was harmed in the process if you don’t count the climate destruction. And all of us normals left behind here on Earth got the greatest gift of all: the opportunity to mock someone who neither knows nor cares what we think.
