Why You Should Learn How To Rock Silver Make-Up And Planets

By 2050, a Japanese company named The Obayashi Corporation will have finally created an elevator into space. Just what you’ve been waiting for, yes? And lucky you, you only have less than 40 years to go before your wait is officially over. Those 40 years are definitely going to fly by in a flash.

The space elevator will be able to take tourists 20,000 miles above the earth. Can you imagine the view from up there? First we heard that Newt Gingrich plans on a space colony (that is, if he can get himself into the White House), so we covered what we’ll have to wear when that day comes. Now it’s time we cover the make-up end of things. Because you can never be too prepared when trying to look good for the future.

I’m picturing a lot of silver and shimmery cosmetics, as well as planet-inspired themes. It will be the future after all, and hasn’t Hollywood taught us the future is rather metal-like in its look? I think yes.

      The problem with futuristic fashion is that we’ll never actually consider ourselves to be in the future so it will always be relegated to 10, 50, 100 years ahead of us.

      Therefore I’m going to start wearing silver lipstick NOW.

      Sliver huh? Yeah that would be a funky kiss. I was gonna post this before, but thought it might be too over the top. Newt’s dream moonbase – some early ’70s sci-fi. See what happens to fashion when you create an ‘Arms race’ in Space. Purple dyed hair. :)

        Man, what a typo. Still dig the thought of that silver lipstick kiss.

      Will it be able to withstand an Earthquake? If it collapsed, the neighboring countries will be hit by the falling pieces?

        Intense earthquakes only happen in certain places – and Japan is one of those places. Though I read something on this elevator awhile back – probably in an Arthur C. Clarke novel. But think about it – what if you put all of our current manufacturing platform – yes including the comestics industry :) – high up in the atmosphere? Less gravity would mean less greenhouse gases.
