(Daily Kos)   You've got to admire the tenacity of a man determined to prove he is the dumbest farking person ever to draw breath - Louie Gohmert asks if there is any way for the Forest Service or Bureau of Land Management to change the orbits of the Earth or Moon   (dailykos.com) divider line

So we're getting the "Stupidest f*cking thing I've heard all day" out of the way early, huh?

Actually, they could with NASA's help.  If they launched Ghomert Pyle into synchronous orbit on the dark side of the moon, his gravitational pull would edge the moon away from earth by a few angstroms over the next million years or so. I'd travel to Cape Canaveral to watch that launch.

I get that.

But still, when they try to change the world around them they must fail more than smarter people? Right?

Just simple stuff. When I refinanced my house (post 9-11 financial changes) it was a paper jungle. It was annoying enough for me (multiple college degrees and 30 years of engineering and management). I just imagine what a low IQ less experienced person must go through to do something like that.

I don't see there being any real close competition.

MTG's rantings about how COVID must be bio-engineered because she doesn't "believe in evolution" is extra stupid, but a lot of stupid people don't "believe" in evolution.

Louis seems to think humanity can alter the orbits of farking plants.

Well, it would be a good way to cure global warming. Just nudge our rock a little further from the sun.

You know, Louie, I think we can accommodate your request. There is one small hiccup though as to pull that off we will need to throw you into the lava of an active volcano. You're all good with that, right?

Then the Earth would be closer to the Moon and what would that mean for women's menstrual cycles.  They would become dangerously enhanced.

And what about those rakes?  Is California raking their forests, or will there be fires again this year?

The Jewish Space laser is the f$cking reason we have no more forests left on the Moon.

Ghomert needs more mass to create the delta-v required to make the bodies move to their anticipated location in less than billions of years. What Ghomert needs to do is put Koch's wallet in his back pocket and that would significantly reduce the time required. Or should Manchin go up since he already has Koch's wallet in HIS back pocket.

This should tell you how dumb republicans are. Ghomert should've asked Palin to ask Putin since he already possesses the skill.

It's not you. It's the method lawyers use when stealing your money. The more signatures of yours they have, the more money they get.

Low IQ people are not permitted to refinance to save money therefore, your point is moot. This adds up to 97% of all right wing sycophants unable to refinance and ..... HEY! How did they get a house in the first place??!

Please invest in my new company.  We've got a contract with the Forest Service to harpoon Jupiter, to drag the earth into a more eco-friendly orbit.  There's a lot of science involved, you probably wouldn't understand it.

There's that, and then things like this. I get frustrated when people won't do things to improve the world not because they can't, but because they just don't wanna. How unpleasant would your life be if you were so dumb that you believed that damn near every time someone said no to you it was because they just don't wanna?

It's clearly possible, at least for the moon. I've watched Space:1999.

I assume the point he was trying to make was that reasons for climate change are out of our control, and thus, we shouldn't try to do anything.

Louie Gohmert -- we need your help in changing the orbit of the moon.  How are you at bull riding?

We already know how to move the Earth, and it's actually something that needs to be done... Eventually.

As the Sun ages, it expands.  We're going to want to move out significantly to avoid being burned to a crisp and then reduced to plasma.

You have to put an asteroid into something like an Aldrin Cycler orbit, and transfer momentum from Jupiter to Earth over millions of loops.  And I assume we'd need to do the same to Mars to get it out of our way.

Luckily, we have literally hundreds of millions of years to do this.

He's trying to do a "gotcha" but it comes out in the most idiotic way possible.

Anyway the whole "solar flares" theory was deemed bullshait for awhile now.

What if, follow me closely now, what if we were to inject bleach into the Earth, while at the same time shining a powerful UV light onto the lunar surface- I feel we should look strongly into that!
