Timely Advice For The Future

I realize publishing tips that are only applicable in the distant future is not common. But I care about future generations. So I am sharing this advice now in the hopes that my grandchildren’s grandchildren’s grandchildren might benefit from my far-sighted wisdom.

If this nugget of sage counsel is handed down from generation to generation, giving it the importance it is due, it will likely save lives.

And someday one of my future ancestors will be able to say, “Thanks, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Granddad. You were right!”

So here is my tip. Prepare the time capsule, please.

If you ever go on a space mission and the ship’s First Officer says,

“We are getting unusual readings of extreme temperatures, intense radiation, and toxic gases. Go out and see if the readings are accurate.”

Don’t do it.

You’re welcome, future kids.
