Planet 581 c

Once we are finished unleashing a big load on this planet, we may have a new place to go:
For the first time astronomers have discovered a planet outside our solar system that is potentially habitable, with Earth-like temperatures, a find researchers described Tuesday as a big step in the search for "life in the universe."

The planet is just the right size, might have water in liquid form, and in galactic terms is relatively nearby at 120 trillion miles away. But the star it closely orbits, known as a "red dwarf," is much smaller, dimmer and cooler than our sun.
Sounds pretty good, but who knew there were communists in space?

Since it may take a while until we leave, you can kill some time by watching a young chap nicknamed RubixQube's video commentary for two difficult Super Mario Bros levels. If you don't want to watch the whole thing, at least check out the first five minutes. It kind of reminds me of Ray Romano playing Nintendo, only profane.

We should find a hotter planet to live on so that we have a valid reason to walk around nude.

Then it should only be a planet for attractive people and us.
