Welcome to the State of the Earth — A source for cosmonauts, subterranean mole people, and everyone in between. Each *indeterminate amount of time* the State of the Earth Address will present perspectives on the issues of the day, news from around the globe, and tips on how to be less of a goose (just in case anyone needs those).
During a year in which the world did not need any more bullshit, Vladimir Putin also decided to invade Ukraine, offering up the following threat: "To anyone who would consider interfering from the outside: if you do, you will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history".

- A live broadcast of a reading of The Brothers Karamazov, with no note taking allowed
- A Street Fighter 2 duel on SNES (Zangief vs Guile), and Vladimir has the good controller
- Enforced watching of Vladimir’s dissertation on Rambo III, titled, “Why It’s The Worst One”
Jokes aside, MR. KOYA’s thoughts are with the brave people of Ukraine this week. Slava Ukraini!
