Yep, to the moon, its seems the safest place to be....at the moment.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Chang'e 3 has shown both the best and the worst side of modern China.

The best: it is a forward thinking nation that has invested heavily in science and technology in an effort to become an advance modern society.

The worst: the seemingly total disregard for the day to day welfare of it's citizens.

I respect an even envy some of what China has achieved and is attempting but I'm bloody glad I don't live there.
