Final Shuttle Launch Vs Royal Wedding!

There will be two very different historic events happening tomorrow...

The final shuttle launch from Cape Canaveral

And

The royal wedding in London

Which is more important?

Royal Wedding

Final shuttle launch is a monument to the advances of science and human understanding of the physical world. The royal wedding is the union of two self important people. I honestly do not understand why anybody (who is not related to or knows the couple) could conceivably give a shit about that wedding. It's the union of two people who will never give a shit about you, to continue an archaic system of monarchy. There are so much more important things going on in the world; there are natural disasters all over the world, Japan has been wrecked by an earthquake, the middle east is a powder keg waiting to explode as they have a massive % of their male youth unemployed and desperate for physical and religious survival, millions of children starve to death daily, and incredible scientific break throughs are discovered every day, and somebody could possibly care about some wedding? It honestly perplexes the hell out of me, how someone can give a shit about the royal wedding. I'm from Canada and I am not fond of the British royalty. They are not my leaders, I do not care about them, and it costs us millions whenever one of them comes here. I would much rather watch a the shuttle launch, an amazing symbol of the astounding intellectual progress we have made over thousands of years, than watch two people I do not give a shit about wed to continue an archaic and outdated system of royalty.

I completely agree. I did this debate as a joke basically but we'll see... someone might actually say the royal wedding. I'm just glad the wedding is tomorrow so we can get it over with. I'm tired of hearing about it.

"Final shuttle launch is a monument to the advances of science and human understanding of the physical world. The royal wedding is the union of two self important people.

The Royal Wedding is a huge British celebration to the advances of culture and history. The Final Shuttle launch is just the launching of stuff into space (a place the U.S have already been to, but for some reason need to keep reminding us that they're the only ones who can afford to go there.) I can't understand why anyone, apart from a few americans, would give a shit about it.

"It's the union of two people who will never give a shit about you, to continue an archaic system of monarchy. "

They don't give a shit about us right? so that's why they invited the leaders of many charities whom they are patrons to. And the Monarchy is merely something we can afford but the U.S can't, which is why you sent 280 people to film the exact reason why you revolted against us.

"There are so much more important things going on in the world; there are natural disasters all over the world, Japan has been wrecked by an earthquake, the middle east is a powder keg waiting to explode as they have a massive % of their male youth unemployed and desperate for physical and religious survival, millions of children starve to death daily, and incredible scientific break throughs are discovered every day, and somebody could possibly care about some wedding?"

These disasters are the exact reason why the nation needs uplifting, this wedding has been planned for months and just because Japan has an earthquake that means a country on the otherside of the world must cancel a state event?

Also the Royal wedding is a huge tourist attraction which will give Britain millions, it also gives something for our Prime Minister to hide behind after he's told us he's going to cut back on public services.

"It honestly perplexes the hell out of me, how someone can give a shit about the royal wedding."

It perplexes the hell out of me how someone could find another shuttle launch remotly interesting.

" I'm from Canada and I am not fond of the British royalty. "

Most Canadians are so I guess you're just a minority

"They are not my leaders, I do not care about them, and it costs us millions whenever one of them comes here."

You saying you can't afford it?

The U.S is not my country and NASA isn't a British organisation I wouldn't want to see the celebration of some american technology(which they discovered 50 years ago) and I can't understand why anyone would.

"I would much rather watch a the shuttle launch, an amazing symbol of the astounding intellectual progress we have made over thousands of years, than watch two people I do not give a shit about wed to continue an archaic and outdated system of royalty."

I would rather watch the Royal Wedding an amazing symbol of British culture and history from the last thousand years, than watch a stupid heap of crap being thrown into nothing.

And anyway the media has spoken over 1/3 of the world's population tuned into the royal wedding, nearly every single News Station in the world sent reporters over here to cover it, so much that we had to build another building for them to film from. The Final Shuttle launch hasn't even been mentioned here at all, whereas the Royal Wedding has definatly reached the States.

Final shuttle launch is a more momentous occasion. It is the end of the shuttle space program and will be the end of an era.

Yes it certainly will... I just think it's a shame that we are ending the shuttle missions before we have a replacement program ready to go.

I do too, and I'm also one who thinks it's pathetic that Houston didn't get one of their own shuttles to display at their science center.

Luckily for me, I can see the shuttle launch from my backyard. The Royal Wedding, I can not... (That would be weird if I could)

When I was younger my parents had a house in New Smyrna Beach so I was fortunate enough to see a few launches... even a night launch which was very cool.

I go down to New Smyrna sometimes to watch the shuttle. I've grown up watching all the shuttle launches. Been to the Cape many times. My grandfather actually retired from NASA. I'm just kinda used to it now. I never miss a launch tho. Even when I was in school, they would take us outside to watch all the launches. Something for us Floridians to be proud of I guess.

Royal Wedding, in fact because of the Royal Wedding this is the only post I'll be able to make today as I get to watch it on TV and I've got a street party later.

In fact the Royal wedding is probably going to get less arguments today because everyone will be too busy to go on CD, You really can't compare the two anyway, if you go any decent news channel in the world they'll be talking about theRoyal Wedding .

In fact I didn't know anything about a shuttle wedding as that hasn't appeared on the news hear at all

If you tell me what you look like I'll make sure they shoot you before you enter the street XD, so far all they know is to kick out an Obama lookalike who wears a pirate hat has weird eyes and dodgy teeth.

The royal wedding cuz the only reason i kno about the shuttle thingy is cuz of this debate. plus the wedding is more entertaining whatching a shuttle go off wasn't ever exciting except for the time first ever. that is it the wedding is at least different stuff happening whatching the shuttle go off is like whatching some one start their car and speed off plus the only thing the shuttle is doing is what it is soposed to do it's an object.

Side: Royal Wedding

I can find more entertainment in watching a couple of tumble bugs roll up a ball of shit.

Shuttle launch, wedding, dog food commercials are all about the same to moi.
