A new exo-planet approximately 1400 light-years away has been found circling a star just like ours, in approximately the same distance from it as Earth is from Sol, and is not that much bigger than our planet (Surface gravity might be around 2g, so twice that of Earth's). Distance is not an issue. I'm packing my bags now to head over to this world and stake my claim on the planet for the eventual interstellar wars that will break out amongst the various planet-kingdoms that will spread out through the Milky Way!
Just have to go fire up that hyperspace engine, and I should be good to go. Who is with me? I'm packing extra water bottles in case of no surface water. Plus, it will help me lose weight just enough that I don't weigh terribly more than an ordinary overweight person here in the United States. Please keep that in mind should you choose to accompany me. After all, I don't want to hear you complaining about needing a hoverchair to get around once we're there simply because you now weigh over 500 pounds.
