“It is about physics” said the director
“The core’s where most of the gold and uranium is.
To get them we just blast off the rest of the layers.
They’re not really important”

Ha! First you wiped out humanity and then the earth… all in one week!
And I’m sick too. Imagine how much I could do in my prime!
Everyone run. The universe is in peril!
Doctor Who to the rescue please! I liked this 🙂
Ha Ha! 🙂
Very good., Great take on the prompt.
Heh, nice! “They’re not really important,” says so much. We very well may do that about all kinds of things, but when looking at it this way it makes you say, “Heeeey, wait a second!”
Hope you feel all besser soon – here’s a little Soft Kitty for you 🙂
Yikes! Love it!
Hard to follow up “Soft Kitty” but, never the less, I wanted to compliment you on your ability to use humour to make a serious point. I enjoyed reading your work. Get well soon. 🙂
Thank you! Already am!
Kinda scary, but all too often the way technology is approached.
I’m sure somebody’s doing a cost benefit analysis while we speak.
Oh wow. How’s that for making mankind seem feeble? I LOVE how you stated this!!!
The matter-of-fact tone is what makes this humorous. You’ve pretty much described the attitude as we leave ugly craters all over the earth, once we’ve mined everything useful from it and dumped the waste into our water supply…wait, that’s another post, isn’t it? 😉
It’s a discussion I am sure will happen some day!
lol I had a good hardy chuckle with this one!
Cheers! I’m glad you liked it.
Succinct ,yet drives home the point in a light hearted manner-Bravo!loved it!:-)
Hey! Wait a minute . . . I live here!
But..But…It is worthless compared to all the wealth in the core. With that they would be able to buy for you a new place to live, a better place. Can’t you make a deal!
This is pretty much where my first attempt at the prompt went but it led into far more than 33 words, so had to do another. Good job!
This is too funny and too true. Great one!
lol! Too funny!
Great job capturing how short-sighted we are.
Thanks a lot! 🙂
Haha! Totally delightful!
I enjoyed this. Nothing like getting to the point.
Cheers! Glad you liked it!
Ouch, harsh! I actually read this with a sort of sci-fi lens. Seems like the germ of a book plot to me.
It certainly is a germ of an idea.
Spoken like a scientist… er, in jest? 🙂
No! I like that!
Ouch! The world ends with a bang!
It would hurt!
