I love your Jupiter, Fliss. Of course, no astronaut could possibly survive Old Jove's magnetic field, which is ten times stronger than Earth's!

Speaking of wars, did you know (yes, it's true) that we have far fewer wars, famine, and plagues than in the whole history of homo sapiens? (Whatever plague comes now, it's not because we have sinned and the gods are punishing us but, because we now know what causes plagues, we can manage them. So all plagues nowadays are due to human stupidity, including the current one.) But are we happier than stone-age (actually wood-age) people? Maybe not.
