Non-Halloween related stuff. Same rules: family oriented, no flaming, be nice. ;-)

Oh, I hadn't heard that. It makes sense. The initial trips were more like pure science, science for the sake of knowledge. But the real push for exploration always happens when people believe they can make $$ from it.

Columbus wouldn't have (almost) discovered America but for the sake of commerce.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.
