In the News "Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died Saturday, weeks after heart surgery and days after his 82nd birthday on Aug. 5. Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 spacecraft that landed on the moon on July 20, 1969, and he radioed back to Earth the historic news of 'one giant leap for mankind'. He spent nearly three hours walking on the moon with fellow astronaut Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin." Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Such a great man. The world lost a true legendary hero today. This man will be an inspiration for generations to come.

Apple has money, the US has an enormous debt and Neil Armstrong didn't go bombing Koreans because he figured it was a quick and safe way to earn a buck.

Money doesn't exist. To make trade easier we made stuff we called money and agreed it has a certain worth, just like we agreed how chess pieces move.

In nature and the universe there is no money. No anthill or beehive ever went bust. No birds ever stopped migrating, because they couldn't effort the trip. No lost tourist was ever able to bribe a lion with money. No dolphin ever stopped having a fun time, because he was too busy finding a job to pay his bills. No alpha ape ever went around collecting taxes. No alien species would ever accept our money in exchange for their technology, because money is worthless unless you and others agree it has a value.

Earth and the universe did fine for billions of years without any money.
