Of Water Bears and Waffle Burgers

Apparently some in the scientific community are concerned about a recent crash-landing on Earth’s Moon of a spaceship that contained tardigrades aka Water Bears.

Contamination of future space shuttles that visit the moon is a concern. Since these critters can live in many different environments [anaerobic (little to no Oxygen), high pressure, light radiation, etc.] they might multiple quite a bit before NASA’s next planned mission the Moon in 2024.

Update: The Arch Mission Foundation has inked a deal with Astrobotic, a NASA-funded firm that intends to deliver a lander to the moon’s surface in 2020 ( https://in.mashable.com/science/5651/heres-how-tardigrades-were-secretly-smuggled-to-the-moon).

Contamination of future successful Thorium extraction might also be a concern.

Seems to me like humankind has just successfully, unintentionally, and serendipitously started colonizing other planetoids and moons. Mars is a noble and worthwhile goal but remains a few years away, at least.

Water Bears are only one in the family of Extremophiles ( Acidophile, Alkaliphile, Osmophile, Barophile / Piezophile, Thermophile, Psychrophile / Cryophile, Halophile, Xerophile, Capnophile, Endolith, Oligotroph, Metallotolerant, and Radioresistant), though I imagine there are more out there, living in places where sampling is incredibly difficult such as the plasma within stars and as well as Black Holes, worm holes, Hawking Radiation, Dark Matter (all types), and Dark Energy (all varieties).

A few years ago when one of our founding members applied for a job at Emerald Cloud Lab, he sent a microbe along with his resume — only to be turned down, sadly. It was a very cute Water Bear:

If I encountered a Water Bear, I’d offer it a Waffle Burger. That would stop or at least delay their take over of earth, along with the rest of the universe. No?

Pillsbury.com has an incredible recipe for Waffle Burgers:

HOMEMAIDE helps you sell your style and buy the things that make you smile, seamlessly.

Any item you come across while reading — at work, commuting, or at home, or when you’re not working (Water Bears, Waffle Burgers, etc.; pop culture songs, music, media; pillows, blankets, beds from your needed extra nap; that delicious Orange Chicken meal from the Chinese restaurant down a few blocks from you), any fun detour or side attraction you stop at while on a road trip, any extremophile like Water Bears, that you read about) — ALL you have to do is upload a picture or paused video screenshot of that to your existing social media sites and Homemaide will send you a commission for every purchase your friends make.

AND — they don’t have to buy a space tourism trip (+$80,000 per person) or a Whole Foods location or satellite (with or without Water Bears) for you to earn a commission (but if they do, YOU will earn a commission from Homemaide on those larger purchases(!!!). If they rented the cheapest economy car or the cheapest pipette or the cheapest ingredient from one recipe, you’d still earn a commission off that. If they bought the item that was in your picture, video, or voice-automated update (like a rental car, Airbnb lodging, hotel stay, Lyft, Uber, Via trip) — they can purchase that (even as a e-giftcard) and ship that to a family member, relative, or friend. And after that purchase, yes, YOU will also earn a commission from that purchase.

Bottom Line is: wahtever micro purchase or macro purchase your social network completed — YOU would earn a commission off of that purchase. If they bought any item from the pictures you uploaded, you’d earn money. That’s the magic of Homemaide.
