Amazon’s Bezos Accepts Award, Promises to Spend Wealth on Space Exploration — Eats a Fucking Iguana

Whatever. These people are lunatics in the first place. The decadence and the excess cause them to lose equilibrium and that leads to bad choices.

For 114 years, the Explorers Club hosts an annual dinner — attended by assholes who enjoy eating goat dicks and spiders. They discuss the planet, outer space, and the ocean — casual discussion over lizard brains and the eyeballs of sheep.

Here’s Jeff Bezos enjoying a bug and a spider.

And here’s Jeff this weekend digging into a fucking iguana.

The more interesting part of the story is Jeff’s statement that he’s going to spend his “Amazon Lottery” winnings on space exploration. With a net worth of $131 billion, perhaps for the first time in mankind’s history, we can go visit the moon.

“The price of admission to space is very high,” Bezos said Saturday night in New York, accepting the Buzz Aldrin Space Exploration Award at the Explorers Club Annual Dinner. “I’m in the process of converting my Amazon lottery winnings into a much lower price of admission so we can go explore the solar system.”

Bezos previously said he’s funding rocket company Blue Origin LLC to the tune of $1 billion a year through the sale of Amazon stock. His comments at the event suggest that may be only the start of his financial commitment to the project, which is developing reusable rockets. His net worth is $131 billion, with $125 billion of that in Amazon stock — and that “keeps on going up,” his mom, Jackie Bezos, said during the cocktail hour. His fortune has grown more than any other on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index this year.

It would be nice if Amazon bought Tesla and Musk could work in conjunction with Bezos to figure out how we, as humans, could travel to the fucking moon for the first time.

    Their money could be spent on other things more beneficial to humanity. But there’s no accounting for people, on the giving or receiving side.

    My choice for most helpful would be finding a broadly acceptable way to stop population growth.

      broadly acceptable way to stop population growth has already been found by filthy marxists – it’s called feminazism, transgenderizm, homosexuality, queerness, depravity, communism, etc. etc.

      We should invest even more heavily in space exploration for that very reason. Send them all to Mars and we should demand people on Mars participate in massive man made warming of planet and wanton population growth.

      Also, many processes can be done far more efficiently without gravity.

      Plus, if all our attempts fail, we need to conquer alpha centauri and kill the aliens that wish to stand in the way of our population growth and find another solar system to conquer. We are horny creatures meant to be fruitful and multiply with abandon while backwards alien societies try to limit their species growth.

    Bezos is an alien that needs to be sent back home in a cheap ass soviet dog module before he starts eating children (if not already). We did go to the moon once but we will never go back because NASA secretly figured out space is gay and there’s no point.

    we’ve been to the moon several times, once (Apollo 13, the hoaxed aborted mission) to plant fake evidence to cover-up the Apollo 11 hoax

      Agreed.

      Besides, it’s not really relevant anymore whether we landed on the moon or not. The main effect of the event at the time was to bolster naitional pride and also scienctific investment. If the government came out and said it was faked, then waht would happen? There would be an incresaed effort attention to *actually visits the moon*. In other words, it would likely have *positive* consequences.

      Also, why would the US plant a flag if they were faking it? When no flag was discovered, it would be proof of the whole deception.

      Anyway, skeptics believe what you want: nobody cares.

    I live in Atlanta, one of the cities on Amazon HQ2 short list. People talk about Bezos and Amazon like the Dark Ages with the king or pope and how our city must do things to please this man. Folks will even get angry at you at a social gathering if you say the state should not legalize pot or force gay wedding cakes, they will say to you “Great it’s people like you that will cost us Amazon coming to Atlanta”.
    Bezos may have business skills that can certainly be learned from, but I have not seen this man espouse a philosophy or doctrine that earns a cause or personality to be followed.

    yes we now have a plan. the greatest business minds of our time decided thaultimate pursuit is to go to the moon and fucking eat pizza and go to a nightclub. That was my plan cheap space travel to desolate places dropping everybody off titanic style.

    Bezos is the Kim Jong-un of the universe – clearly baiting the lizard people with threats of invading their planet and eating their loved ones – all while (knowingly) toting primitive rockets and inferior weaponry.

    He will destroy us all.

      Nice, we are clearly fucked. Does Musk fit into this somehow? Maybe they do battle?
