Ticket to Space

In his weekly column "Max's Column" for TBmagazine, Maxim Behar talks about the difficulties and changes in the Bulgarian economy and business and the only force that counts - experience.

How much is a ticket to space now? There is no answer to this question. And there can't be.

But more and more often I hear people around me wanting to escape to... Space. They grumble from morning till night, annoyed with this, desperate at that, but all they have to do is move beyond the "dark border" and they see the discipline, the organization, the hard work and the strict laws and they immediately come back to Bulgaria. They come back and they come back at the speed of light. Although they are not happy here, but... "there" is still not a good place to live.

Otherwise, they won't go out to fix the garden in front of the entrance, they won't paint the staircase, they will be too tired to even tidy up the desk in the office or move two paving stones on the street that are in the way of cyclists. Instead, they'll park on the sidewalk to be closer to the entrance, throw trash out the back window, and who knows what other shenanigans. Because this is possible in Bulgaria, not allowed, but still possible...

And then where to go? Here prices are going up and the state doesn't take care of us like babies, in the West they want us to work a lot. What about in space, where else.

But nobody knows how much the ticket costs, that's the problem.
